Silver

Test number: 8154H

Breed
All Horse Breeds .
Description

The gene for silver is another gene causing a lightening of the basic colour. The silver-gene has no impact on pheomelanin like the genes for cream and champagne and only leads to brightening of black coloured areas. Especially black coloured hair of mane and tail appears brighter because of the occurrence of white and grey hairs. The gene for silver is inherited autosomal-dominant and one copy of the gene is sufficient for the phenotype.

Sample Requirements
Hair Sample from mane with roots (approx 30 hairs) , Buccal Swabs or 1 ml whole blood in EDTA tube.

How to obtain a viable hair sample

Pull around 30 hairs from the mane of the horse with the roots (in faols hair from the tail maybe taken). Wrap the hairs around your finger or a comb, as close as possible to the skin to ensure you obtain the hair roots. Keep dry, put in a bag, label the bag with the horse name, test (s) required. Place in an envelope and send back to us together with the order form. Broken or cut off hair will not be accepted.
