Giselle Pedigree

Giselle DNA and Pedigree

Color:A/a, E/E, nd1/nd2

Giselle is a bay horse. Homozygous for black E/E, she will always pass black onto her foals. She has one Agouti gene A/a – which 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. Giselle has a 50% chance of passing Agouti to any offspring. She also has one Non-Dun gene and so will pass that on 50% of the time to her foals. Non-Dun (nd) Primitive Markings may result in dorsal striping, leg barring and “shadows” on the face and shoulder.

Curious. Two Curiosity variants; horse may be more curious than vigilant.

DMRT3 “Gait Carrier One DMRT3 or “gaited” variant; may display a wide variation in locomotion, “gaiting” – 3 feet on the ground, and possible difficulty with lead change, tempi changes, canter, or gait transitions.

Endurance. Endurance type myostatin; horse may accel at longer distance travel versus short distance sprint type activity.Health Variants:Horse has not tested positive for any known disease variants on this panel.Coat color:

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.     Also, we do not know the year that the ELITE book was created.
