    Pathological Research on D2 dwarfism

    Debby, Yes please I would greatly appreciate it if you could pin it. I wanted to get the word out what I needed before the foaling season really got started. This is typically the time of year dwarfs are aborted in late term,especially the D2 type. Thanks again.

    I want to clear up a few things some are confused about and to explain a few things I did not put in the thesis because it did not pertain to chondrodysplasia.

    Closing AMHA Registry

    I am in the lab doing tests for two of the dwarf mutations on my population samples today, but I thought I needed to reply to some blatant incorrect and flawed information.

    Who attended the Greencastle Sale

    I think posting prices from a public auction is something that should be done, for all horse breeds, after the fact.
