Boneca’s DNA report from Etalon Diagnostics available on request.

W20/n, E/E, A/A, nd2/nd2

Black (E) + Agouti (A): Bay (A, E) is a very common coat color in horses. The Agouti restricts the black pigment to the outer points including the mane, tail, lower legs, and sometimes the tips of the ears. Bay horses have black skin under their coat, except beneath white markings. Horse with two Black (EE) and two Agouti (AA) have a 100% chance of passing Black and Agouti to any offspring. W20/n – One Dominant White 20 (W20) variant detected; may result in White markings. Horse has 50% chance of passing to any offspring.

Two Curiosity variants; horse may be more curious than vigilant. One DMRT3 or “gaited” variants; may display “gaiting”, 4 beat or possible loss of canter (less diagonal and less athletic). Endurance type myostatin; may excel at longer distance travel versus short distance sprint type activity.

Boneca has not tested positive for any known disease variants

One measure of greatness is Brasil’s ELITE book – a registry of National Champion Marchadors who also produced National Champions.  Parents and grandparents that are ELITE champions matter the most.  Further back in the pedigree, it becomes less of an indicator.

The ELITE book is not the only measure of quality however.   Some Marchador breeders prefer not to show their horses, but to prove them in other ways — like cavalgadas, sports, cattle and ranch work etc.
