ODDS OF THE COMBINATIONS
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 and 25% will be CC
CA x CC = 50% will be CC, 50% will be CA
AA x CC = 100% CA
CC x CC = 100% CC
The DNA test will ID the horse’s gait genes as one of the following three. Homozygous A/A—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, tort and canter.
