Today's episode is about the genetic profile test report for my 4-year-old foster horse, Doc Gunner. We have no history on this horse prior to December of his 3-year-old year. Given that we know nothing about this horse's breeding or history, it was important to me to get as much data as I could so I can more effectively give him the rehab and training he needs to be successful for the rest of his life.
I'm really excited to have two expert guests in the field of genetic testing and equine veterinary medicine, Christa Lafayette, founder and CEO of Etalon Diagnostics, and Dr. Ben Buchanan from the Brazos Valley Equine Hospital. Join us as we review the full genetic report on Doc Gunner and his unusual genetic traits. We'll get answers to some medical questions we've had, and how we'll manage this horse going forward. Plus, we'll talk about his unique temperament and character, how that relates to his performance potential, and how that is evident in his genes.
