DNA testing for health, appearance and pedigree verification in horses

Learn about one of the tests we do: Friesian health & colour

Panels are groups of tests that are often chosen together.

Friesian horses are a beautiful breed. They are almost universally black, but the red gene can still be found in the population at low frequency. This means that on rare occasions chestnut foals can be born.

Breeders of both pure- and part-bred Friesians also need to make sure they know which of their horses carry the genes for hydrocephalus and Friesian dwarfism.

The Friesian panel consists of just three tests: red/black, hydrocephalus, and Friesian dwarfism.
