Coat Color Testing at the AQHA

 

April 2012 issue

 

       

The American Quarter Horse Association is now offering several coat color tests, for registered Quarter Horses only, including a panel test, individual color tests and gray zygosity test. This test is designed to determine the actual coat color of a horse.

            The coat color panel test includes:

Extension (Presence of red/black pigment)

Agouti

Champagne dilution

Cream dilution

Dun dilution

Pearl dilution

Silver dilution

Gray (presence or absence of gray) – additional testing required

Lethal white overo

            These tests can be done in the panel as well as individually. If done as a panel, the cost is $85 for members and $125 for non-members. If ordering individual tests, the cost for members is $25 for each test, and non-members pay $65 for each test. Please note, roan is a separate test and not included in the panel test.

            The gray zygosity test determines if one or two copies of the gray gene are carried in the horse. The gray zygosity test is an additional $15 for members and $55 for non-members.

            The lab will mail a kit to the horse owner and put the horse’s information on that kit. The fees paid by non-members will also renew membership in the AQHA for a year.

            To order color tests, call AQHA at (806) 376-4811 and get the process started today.
