I have really enjoyed blogging about genetics recently, and I hope I am not boring any one too much. It's also been a great excuse for me to look up and check my facts on a few things. I love researching.
So, expect to see more information about tobiano on Monday. Today, I will be enjoying a few ponies, and cooking a steak for my dad. Ok, I won't be cooking, but I sure will be eating it!
And I'd like to congratulate Heather on THIS:
A Note about Sugarbush Draft Horses
I see it over and over again, and no matter how many times it's said, it's still wrong. "Sugarbush Drafts are just an Appaloosa Draft Cross". Uh.... no. The Sugarbush Draft Horse was a breed created many years ago in Ohio. While the initial cross was made using Percherons to Appaloosas, in the many generations following, the breed has been solidified into a consistent type. Saying these horses are "just" a draft cross makes as much sense as saying that AQHA horses are "just" a Thoroughbred cross, American Cream Drafts are "just" a dilute Belgian, or that Morgans are "just" a grade.
