Jellico Farms has been breeding Morgan horses for 30 years. Our goal is to produce even four beat Gaited Morgan horses performing the saddle rack, rack and running walk.
As an aid acheiving our goal our horses will be gene tested using the SynchoGait Gene Test offered by UC Davis. Using these DNA gene results we will be able to project gait of offspring as shown in the below table. The DNA test will ID the horse's gait genes as one of the following three. Homozygous A/A --- the horse will perform ambling and lateral gaits. Heterozygous A/C --- the horse will perform lateral gaits. Homozygous C/C -- the horse will perform the walk, trot and canter. This is explained in greater detail in the article. http://www.capiletgenetics.com/en/dna-2
AA x AA = 100% of the offspring will be AA
CA x AA = 50% will be AA and 50% will be CA
CA x CA = 25% will be AA, 50% will be CA, 25% will be CCCA x CC = 50% will be CC and 50% will be CAAA x CC = 100% will be CACC x CC = 100% will be CC
