The art of horse breeding has shaped equine genetics since domestication, yet most horse professionals have little understanding of the fundamentals of genetics. On this six-week online extension course we will examine the underlying mechanisms and inheritance of a number of traits in the horse. Concepts covered will include coat color, genetic disease, parentage testing and some insights on complex traits of performance and behavior.
