Re: my first "what color is this horse" post in years!! :D

I think I'm slightly confused. Are you saying that if their eyelashes are white at birth, it's probably pinto related and if they're dark at birth but go white eventually it's probably app related?

This is just not a color non-Welsh chestnuts sport.

Whattabout Critter's mare that is such a dark liver chestnut that everyone thinks she's bay?

Critter's dark liver mare makes a strong argument for sooty gene(s), IMO. But we know that Lp can muntify and other weird things to colour and "trim"/points, which is why my stance. I do hope she does get tested, cuz I really want to know 100% for sure!

No, I'm saying that I have never seen a paint go from dark to white in the eyelash department, without grey being present (as grey removes ALL of my bets, not just for paints). I have, however, seen this happen on quite a few occasions, with apps, and with bay apps in particular (especially when there's not a full-blown nose to toes pattern). And I'm admitting that my paint genetics knowledge is highly sketchy in comparison to my appy genetics knowledge :angel I'm also stating my own experience/searching with this "phenomena".

I can spring for a test because I'm really curious, too. What lab should I use? Shall I just test for extension or anything else?

IMO, unless a horse is flagrantly chestnut, I'd test for extension and agouti. Of course, the two tests that I "absolutely need" aren't available... :BH

Well, if you are going to spring for something, you might as well use the VeriSNP as you get all the tests at once...although it seems to take a long time to get results.

I think you can test for *just* extension (she's obviously not black imo) for just $25 through Animal Genetics who are the fastest and friendliest I've encountered.

No offense to Horsegen intended. LOL! Speaking of which, anyone have any way to get in touch with her?

3 months plus? Nope, not me. Especially not when only needing one test and you can get it for $25.

I don't even remember Horsegen's real name and the only place I had her email address saved was in my PMs on the old forum. :(

I feel really bad because I owed her some photos and then everything disappeared.

It's not Rebecca Ballone is it?
Such a long time ago.. I'm thinking it started with an R or an A but can't be sure..anyway this name rings a bell .

She wasn't involved with the Appaloosa project was she?

Actually- I think I remember her name being Angela - no idea on her last name though. I never kept her email (was about 3yrs or longer ago)

I'm drawing a total blank. Maybe we could check UCD staff list? Show records as I know she shows WP over there?

Anyone brave enough to call UCD and just ask around? :rofl

Re: my first "what color is this horse" post in years!! :D

Ok I just looked at UCD's list. Two names are familiar for me: Leah Brault and Sabino Nooteboom (first name is actually Ann). Right now I am REALLY thinking it's Leah. The email address is just setting off ALL sorts of flags for my photographic memory. The picture also looks like the face I remember seeing from her trip to Europe.

Easiest way to find out is to call and ask UCD who is doing the work on flaxen Morgans. I know that's one of her current projects.

Re: my first "what color is this horse" post in years!! :D

She only has white eyelashes on the side where the white comes down to her eye right? I'll bet it's the splash. Lace has black pigment all the way around her eye, but white eyelashes on both sides (even the brown eyed side, which is so cool). A friend of mine has a splash TB mare whose white doesn't touch her eye, but she has white eyelashes. I love them!

ACC

Our frame mare has white eyelashes on one side and brown on the other. I am pretty sure you all thought she had splash too. Pretty cool looking I must say!!!

With the question being is she bay or is she just dark chestnut, you'd not test for extension?

No, I said JUST extension. I don't see need for agouti.

Ahh, my bad...of course, if the mare should ever have a potential breeding career, it might come in handy to know the agouti status too. :angel

Kewl. Due to a massively hectic life at the mo', I wasn't able to go and send an email right away, and well, when I went to email her the other night (in a spare quiet moment), I could neither find her email in my address book nor any of her old emails....ready to toss this 'puter out the window, I am!!

Ok, having seen her in person, I still say chestnut (which means she is going to test E- just to prove me wrong). :lol:

I live with her and lean toward bay... she's a tough one. :lol:

I'll test soon, I swear. Just let me get through a few busy weeks and I'll do it.
