Genetic & Color Testing

                  Genetic Conditions

Homozygous negative for Hereditary Equine Regional Dermal Asthenia (HERDA). His pedigree does not include Poco Bueno, who is believed to be the origination of HERDA. However, it does include a ½ brother, 89er. Both 89er and Poco Beuno were sired by King.

OLWS          N/N
Homozygous negative for Overo Lethal White Syndrome (OLWS). It is safe to breed frame overo mares to Navajo.

PSSM1        N/N
Homozygous negative for Polysacharide Storage Myopothy (PSSM1). No chance of foals inheriting "tying-up" syndrome from him.

GBED          N/N
Homozygous negative for Glycogen Branching Enzyme Deficiency (GBED). GBED is fatal to newborn foals.  Navajo is not a carrier, thus no chance of foal death caused by GBED.

Presumed negative.  No need to test for Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis (HYPP) as Navajo is not related to the stallion Impressive.  Only horses with Impressive bloodline are at risk for HYPP.

                    Color Genetics

Splash    N/SW1
Navajo is heterozygous for Splash type 1. He is N/N for Splash types 2 and 3.

Splashed white is a variable white spotting pattern characterized primarily by extremely large blaze, extended white markings in legs, variable white spotting in belly, and often blue eyes. Research has identified 3 mutations.  SW-1 has been found in several breeds and is safe in the homozygous form.  SW-2 has been linked to deafness.  The rare SW-3 occur exclusively in certain lines of Quarter Horses and Paints and may be homozygous lethal.

Tobiano        N/N
Homozygous negative for the Tobiano allele. He is capable of and has previously produced tobiano foals, depending upon the coloring of the dam.

Sabino 1       N/N
Homozygous negative for the Sabino 1 allele. However, he does exhibit some sabino type coloring consisting of white legs, belly spots, bald face and blue eyes. The Sabino gene is complex and thought to be polygeneic. Sabino 1 is currently the only available test related to sabino coloring.

Red/Black    e/e
Homozygous for recessive red factor. He has black pigmented skin and red pigmented hair, except for his white spots, which have pink skin.

Agouti         A/A
Homozygous dominant for the Agouti allele. Because he is e/e (red), meaning he has no black to modify, the Agouti allele is not visually expressed in his color. He is capable of and has previously produced bay foals.

Dilutions    N/N
Homozygous negative for Champagne, Cream, Pearl and Silver dilution alleles.

Dominant White    N/N
Dominant white (called W10) ranges from a minimal Sabino-like pattern to completely white. Horses with the W10 mutation have pink skin where the hair is white; the eyes are rarely blue.
