I'm triing to find out about a horse for my dad. He said it has a bad gene or something that makes it always have a spotted colt? Any help wil be appreciated. Thanks, Wesley

Its not a bad gene. Its a gene that basicly means he will always throw spotted babies.

HOMO ZYGOUS and HETEROZYGOUS

Homozygous: When two genes are identical, for this discussion the individual has two tobiano genes. Example- Homozygous Tobianos will always pass a tobiano gene to an offspring (genes TT).

Heterozygous: When genes at the same location are not the same- and the parent can pass either gene (genes Tt). An Example - a tobiano foal with one tobiano parent and one quarter horse parent can only have one tobiano gene, regardless of any external markings!

Thanks a million. He's been talking about this and I could not find any thing on it. I guess because I didn't know how to spell it. Thanks Again, Wesley
