NOTICE TO HORSE GENETICS DIPLOMA STUDENTS

Bay Horse

One or two copies of the dominant extension allele causes the production of black pigment in bay horses. The browner body, which may be reddish or yellowish brown, is due to at least one copy of a dominant agouti allele. It converts the black pigment to brown, but not in the points, which remain black.
