Sorry, we aren't taking any more orders this week.
We are flat out! We want to keep doing a good job for our clients so we've taken the step of capping the number of orders we accept. If we don't do this, the turnaround time for testing will keep getting longer and longer.
Orders for each new week open on Monday, Sydney time. We are working to find ways to test more samples every day, and we will increase the weekly cap as soon as we can.
In the mean time, have a look through our individual tests and panels (panels are groups of tests) to help decide what you want to test for.
Splashed white 3/deafness (SW3)
The splashed white 3 (SW3) gene causes white markings. They can range from minor facial markings and socks to the white face, blue eyes, white legs and white belly of a typical boldly marked splash horse. Most SW3 horses have fairly extensive markings. Like all splashed white horses, it is possible for SW3 horses to be deaf.
The SW3 version of splashed white has so far only been found in pure and part-bred Paints descended from TD Kid, a Paint stallion born in 2001 in the USA.
At this point there are no known instances of horses carrying two copies of SW3.
