Equine Coat Color Genetics: An Introduction

I don't remember where I got this to now, but it's a "game" for lack of a better word that lets you turn different genes on and off to see how they influence coat colors. I personally find it interesting and thought I would share as it seems people here are looking for some genetics help.

Wow..i just spent like an hour looking at that site :) there's like 8 different combinations that look like my horses...ahaha i really need to get them tested

I've seen this game before. It's pretty neat, although it does allow you to do some impossible genetic combinations. For example, it lets you have a horse that is homozygous for frame, which is lethal. It also lets you have a white horse who is homozygous for roan and tobiano...all 3 of these are linked to the KIT gene, and since the horse only inherits one half of a KIT gene from each parent, it means you could have one or none of those genes, ToR, WTo, ToTo, WR, RR, but certainly not all of them at the same time lol
