Greying with age

Greying with age (left) can produce spectacular coat colours.

Why test for greying with age?

Horses and ponies that carry the gene variant that causes greying with age are special. They go through a beautiful range of shades on their way to becoming completely white or flea-bitten grey, but they also have a high risk of developing melanoma.

Genetic testing can confirm whether your horse has the gene variant that causes greying with age and increases susceptibility to melanoma.
