For those not on Facebook, there has been a press release from Davis re: HWSS in Connemara Ponies.

article on Horsetalk with more info:

and the Official HWSS blog site

I want to thank those involved in getting this research started.

For those that would like to donate DNA samples to UC Davis there is a link on the UCdavis site for info.

I also know they are still looking for more funding for this project .

Here is hoping that a public test is made available as soon as possible and that the breed registries take the opportunity when it is available and make the HWSS status part of a ponies registration.
