Odd. They found the markers

Odd. They found the markers first but I'm confused as to why it would only be the marker test when the single gene mutation that causes LP has been found and isolated.

From what I've read all of the horses tested with the marker test all had the same markers regardless of breed and background. So it's likely extremely accurate even for a marker test.
