Interesting! I wonder if the fear factor in homozygotes would be any stronger.

To me that sounds like "fear

To me that sounds like "fear in horses with eye problems is higher" rather than really being linked to silver per say, as not all silvers have eye problems, but a lot do. So it probably would be higher in HZ silver horses as they would have a higher chance at having eye problems.

Absolutely! I am afraid I

Absolutely! I am afraid I found the hard way NOT to breed Silver to Silver. Yes, there are some that are OK, I had quite a few. Then there is the one that is H/Z and NOT OK. Let's just say that holding a six month old foal to be shot is not my idea of a fun Saturday. NEVER again. I only do really REALLY stupid things ONCE, especially when I don't pay the ultimate price.

Other than being linked to

Other than being linked to bad eyesight, what negative traits can silvers (or silver homozygotes) commonly have?
