2017 news: this year we will be working on parentage testing, as
well as testing for brown agouti and roan. More details coming soon!
We now offer both hydrocephalus
and dwarfism testing for pure and part-bred
Our second monthly mystery horse is Rahane Nigel, a.k.a Winnie.
Winnie is a Welsh B gelding. He is registered as palomino, but has dark points and both dark and light colouring
in his mane and tail. Is he buckskin with a silver or heavily frosted mane and tail, or sooty palomino?
To identify Winnie's colour we tested for red/black, agouti, cream silver and dun. Winnie also has three white socks and a blaze.
We tested for W20, sabino 1 and splashed white 1 (SW1) to find the cause of his markings.
