    I too LOVE Arabians and have my very old Crabbet girl here though I show Paints & Quarter Horses.

    I think it would be true to say that colour itself does not have any genetic implications, its the modifying genes "on top" of the colour like merle that carry the issues? Or are there genetic problems linked to a base colour?

    I think so Boxerini. OWLS isnt a colour as such but its a gene that is hand in hand with colour and a lethal gene at that.

    Are they any lethal genes associated with colour in dogs? I know the merle gene has some pretty bad consequences when doubled up. Any others?

    Ill attach a pic of my beloved Paint/QH child Style...

    Wooo, lucky. 2 time nat. champ? Jealous. I love that funny marking on his chestnut leg, so cute. Would offer more but not really a fan of the QH's and Paints, I don't like their big bums

    Funnily enough that marking looks like a letter K so I joke she has my initial on her so I knew she was to be mine.

    Ill post another of mine without a big bum for you... he is a quarab.

    I don't know a lot about horses but they look gorgeous!

    Merle genes affect some breeds but not others... I know in Great Danes if you double up on the merle gene you end up with a litter of dead pups, yet with breeds like Shelties it doesn't seem to affect too much.
    It's something I want to read up on more but all the websites I find get too technical too quickly and you need a degree just to understand them.

    There are "death genes" in a few breeds but not all relate to color.
    Merle is the death gene in Danes, the hairless gene is the death gene in Cresteds.

    I would love to see a pic of your arab mare if she's the old fasioned type.
    I only now of the merle & now some splashy markings may work simalarly to the way they do in horse, deafness etc.
