has kindly made up a set of genetics for the breed. During the next few days, imports will be updated with their new genos, which is exciting, but please be patient.
Page Under Construction.
NOTE: This will probably be subject to a little editing, and I'm hopeless with this stuff so I might need help assigning genos to the existing imports. Feel free to make suggestions if you understand things more than me. It may just be that my brain is fried from uni today.
Earth =Jord– Codominant Gene with Water
-Represented by JoJo or Jojo (Homozygous and Heterozygous)
Water=Haf – Codominant Gene with Earth
-represented by HfHf or Hfhf (Homozygous and Heterozygous)
Sky =Lopt– Recessive Gene
-Represented by LoLo only.
Breeding Two types: (Possible combinations)
EarthxWater – If both parents are Homozygous or Heterozygous, the outcome is randomized.
-If one parent is homozygous and the other is heterozygous, the Homozygous gene will be the one expressed.
Only SkyxSky will give sky 100%
There is a ¼ chance of getting a Sky from breeding two other types with one copy of the Sky gene together.
Light(Bright)= Ljos – Makes the Base colour very light or pale in colouring(Light pastel colours or lighter.) Can be hetero or homo. Ljlj or LjLj
Light=Kveykva- Gives the points of the horse a lighter appearance than the base. Generally brighter, but can go into pastel shades. Hetero or Homo. Can be linked to Ljos to create a very light animal with nearly white points, hiding any leg markings.
Wave =Unnr– Gives a lighter appearance to the underside of the coat, much like pangare, only wavelike, can be spotted throughout the coat as well if there is appaloosa involved. Wave markings may be a different colour as long as it’s lighter than the base colour and still among the acceptable colours of the base (ie, base is blue, wave is seafoam green). homozygous, represented by UU. Uu are carriers only. May only be present on Water(up to you)
Darkness=Myrkr – Makes the base coat very dark, almost midnight colours. Extremely rare, if at all possible, on Sky. Most common on Water. Hetero or homo. Mm or MM
Dark(Sunset) = Solbjorg – Makes markings darker than the coat colour. Hetero or Homo, affects all paint/appaloosa and dapple markings. –Soso or SoSo
Dapple – Hetero or homo, gives lighter dappling markings to base coat over back and neck. DpDp or dpdp
Appaloosa- lighter Blanket or Leopard spots. LpLp = Blanket, Lplp = Leopard.
Tobiano- Any lighter paint markings that go over topline. Toto or ToTo
Overo – Any lighter paint markings that don’t touch the topline anywhere. Oo only. OO= lethal.
Land =biod – Gives darker speckles on an earth base, little islands clustered in a few areas on the coat.
Earthquake =Land-Skjalpti – Causes paint markings to have ‘spatter’ around the markings themselves, like debris from an earthquake. Recessive. sksk
Sunset – Solarsetr. Affects Sky, turns the light blues into light oranges and light sunset colours with hints of blue. Recessive, stst.
The Four Directions:
Causes the wave gene to be limited in one direction.
East – wave covers head and neck towards rump only. Eded only
West – Wave covers rump towards head only. Wdwd only
North – wave covers back towards belly only. Recessive to all others. ndnd
South – Normal Wave. Dominant to all others. Sdsd or SdSd
Waterfall=voss – Markings that come down the forehead and top of neckline and ‘fall’ towards the bottom of neck and face. Can continue down the legs in some cases. Vovo or VoVo. On water only.
