What are the free genotyping offers?
Practical Horse Genetics frequently
offers limited amounts of free equine genotyping. But don't get too excited
yet - not all horses and ponies are eligible.
In order to be eligible, each horse or pony needs to be a carrier of the particular
trait that we are working on.
Our way of saying thank-you for helping us out with positive control samples is
giving you free genotyping: choose two of our coat colour tests and we will run them
for free on the sample you provide. We will also give you a discount code to use
for future testing of other horses.
We are three years old

More details and which traits are next
Our next free genotyping offers will be associated with brown agouti (also referred to as At),
the PATN1 gene (relevant to Appaloosas), and parentage verification.
We also hope to start work developing tests for one or
more of the following coat colour traits: pangare/mealy,
roan, SW2, W13 and the other new Australian
You might also want us to
do testing for something else entirely. If so, get in touch. The more
requests we get, the more likely we are to target that test.
We also hope to offer
tests for Connemara Pony Hoof Wall Separation Syndrome and the
forms of dwarfism found in Miniatures in the future.
