Whenever I see an article on equine coat colors, I’m glued.
I was always like that when it came to things genetic. All those variables – genes – are a wonder to me. Why are clones so different than the original horse? How can identical twins be so different – even though they look alike? How do mutations effect everything else?
If I hadn’t been a Producer, I would have been very happy sitting in a lab all day, studying cells under a megawatt microscope.
Ahh, but alas, I just drool over science journals and articles on equine coat color variations.
HERE WE GO!
I’ve listed here the two webpages that contain these interesting equine coat color facts!
