“A previously unidentified dilution phenomenon has been discovered in Andalusion and Paso (Peruvian and possibly also American) horses. It seems to be a recessive dilution gene, as well as manifesting in its homozygous state.”
Very cool! I wonder if it’s related to champagne, or the Barlink Factor in Paints. I thought all dilution genes in horses were dominant, though, or perhaps it depends on the base colour the way silver dapple and cream do, so it appears to be ‘hiding’ for a few generations. Also, maybe grey would hide it? Can’t wait for more research!
