    (forgive any formatting issues, COTH is being glitchy for me today) I totally agree. I suspect most of us breeders have similar stories of foals ending up on the wrong side of an obstacle.

    Also note that when young horses are in a downhill growth phase that can cause some degree of "upside down" neck carriage and magnify any postural tendency in that regard.

    You may understand the meaning of carrier, but the phrasing of your earlier statement could be confusing to people who don't.

    "If she had something, I'd know it." implies a complete misunderstanding of what SCID, CA, and LFS carrier status means. Carriers of these alleles are NOT unhealthy; they are heterozygous for genes...

    While the frequency of SCID within the Crabbet lineage horses is higher than in some other bloodline groups, the myth that Crabbet horses are the sole source of SCID needs to be laid to rest. (Just...

    I would just go ahead and test for all three (SCID, CA, and LFS) since just going based on known carrier lines overlooks all the unknown carriers. Seriously, I know of multiple cases where Arabian...

    Shagya's are larger and have been purpose bred for sport (originally cavalry horses) from foundation stock that included Arabians and native Hungarian horses. Inspections and performance testing are...

    Except that carrier status does not have a neutral or positive value. Fewer breeders will choose to use a carrier for breeding than a comparable clear individual. So there is generally some negative...

    The population size, overall genetic diversity of that population, and the starting frequency all have an influence. HYPP is also different because heterozygotes are negatively impacted by the...
