Last time, we talked about the genetic profile of Doc Gunner (who we now call "Doc") regarding his unusual coloration, his deafness, his health conditions, and his behavioral traits. It's fascinating information, and it's invaluable for us in terms of managing his health.
In this episode, we're going to discuss Doc's ancestry report—how we can find out more about his real pedigree, find some close relatives of his, and possibly even figure out who his sire and dam are. Plus, we'll talk about how DNA testing works, all of the exciting research being done in this field, and how you might learn more about your horse through DNA testing.
