I have a few questions about color testing in horses.

  1. What colors tests are available and who offers them?
  2. How accurate are color tests? I have heard that some of the tests are not 100% accurate?
  3. Are there different ways to test for a color (aside from breeding)?

I also use the same site listed above. I'm not away of any color test that uses DNA for its results that isn't 100% accurate, but I'm sure those people who own that company would be able to tell you.

On this site http://www.horsetesting.com/Equine.htm they explain what tests are available and what they test for. new tests are added all the time (the grey gene was just added on friday !!).

They also have a color calculator on that site where you can put in what horses you have and what they could produce with that combination. Very fun to play on a winter's day!
