AQHA offering color coat testing
AQHA is now offering several coat color tests, including a panel test, individual color tests and gray zygosity test. This test is designed to determine the actual coat color of a horse.
The coat color panel test includes:
--Extension (Presence of red/black pigment);
--Gray (presence or absence of gray)--additional testing required; and
--Lethal white overo.
These tests can be done in the panel as well as individually. If done as a panel, the cost is $85 for members and $125 for nonmembers. If ordering individual tests, the cost for members is $25 for each test, and nonmembers pay $65 for each test. Please note, roan is a separate test and not included in the panel test.
The gray zygosity test determines if one or two copies of the gray gene are carried in the horse. The gray zygosity test is an additional $15 for members and $55 for nonmembers.
