    My stallion is Homozygous Grey (DNA tested). He is not available for public stud though this season.

    My boy was DNA tested through Oxford University in the UK when he was on route to Australia. He had a short Quarantine stay in the UK before arriving here.

    I have a grey but he isnt homozygous.

    What breed are you looking for??

    Hi Samm! No specific breed at this point - just interested in the GG genes. I'm asking on behalf of a friend, thanks.

    Anymore knowns? I have heard the breeds which are mostly greys have a good chance (ie Andalusians and Lipizzaners). But am looking for certainty (well - preferably tested) though a good number of foals - and all grey - ups the chances! :))

    Friend of mine has what we are pretty certain without DNA testing is a homozygous grey part-Arab stallion. He has two grey parents and all progeny have gone grey regardless of the colour of the mare – he is around 20 odd so there are a decent number of his babies out there. He has even produced a paly who is now grey.

    Mark Brunini (Tenayen Stud) has or had a homozygous grey pinto Australian pony stallion - again, not DNA tested but 100% grey progeny and more than a few of them at that in both solid and pinto versions.

    Looking at Verglas the grey TB stallion's progeny, I think he may be also. All new registrations are listed as grey or bay/grey etc etc.

    Thanks Tintara and Jewels' :D

    Does anyone know of a commercial lab offering homozygous grey DNA testing? The ones I've looked up so far don't - just do other colours.

    As far as I know the grey test isn't commercially available yet. I don't think it will be too far away though.

    5 out of 6 foals are grey #( {the sixth foal passed away before anyone could tell if she was going to grey out }

    he's Arab-pure 86% Crabbet

    City Girl - why unhappy? The melanoma risk? I like the way you can SEE greys (find in the dark). But keeping clean...well they practically need a bodystocking.

    Yours is a very handsome boy indeed! His dam & sire both greys too then?
