Textbooks of general genetics rarely mention horses. Horse breeders and those taking courses in equine studies do not find it easy to relate fruit flies, pea plants and mice to practical horse breeding. There is therefore a need for a book which provides an overview of genetic principles using horses as the primary examples. This book aims to fill this gap. The author, who has both practical and academic experience in this subject, has distilled facts and ideas to provide relevant examples in a jargon-free way, while still maintaining scientific rigor. Our knowledge of horse genes lags well behind that of other domestic animals, and the number of well-understood examples is limited. The author thus concentrates on topics such as coat color, where information is well documented, to illustrate general genetic principles. Nevertheless, the book is comprehensive in scope, covering additional topics such as parentage testing, medical genetics and gene mapping. Overall, the book is unique in providing an up-to-date review of current knowledge of horse genetics. It will be invaluable for students of equine studies, animal breeding and veterinary science, as well as for horse breeders, professionals and enthusiastic amateurs working with horses.

Equine Color Genetics 2e is a complete discussion of horse and donkey colors, including details of their genetic control and their identification. The book explains how to accurately identify horses and donkeys by using colors. It furthers an understanding of the genetic basis of color and contributes to research on specific behavioral characteristics associated with color. The author includes all known color variations of horses throughout the world. The book provides an explanation of genetic mechanisms that determine colors and discusses colors in sequence from less common to more common. Donkey color is addressed in a separate section. This uncomplicated and useful approach to understanding horse and donkey color patterns, as well as the various subtleties that exist, includes more than 100 striking color photographs accompanied by descriptions of both common and unique coat patterns. With new chapters concerning breeds and conservation and on the basic biology of gene selection, as well as new appendices detailing previously undocumented genes in horses and donkeys, this second edition of Equine Color Genetics will appeal to anyone who is a student of the horse. Breeders, veterinarians, faculty and veterinary students and equine science students will find this book a valuable addition to their libraries.

This book is particularly interesting for both horse breeders and molecular geneticists. Equids (horses and asses) have a particular place in the human culture and history. There are strong arguments for conservation of rare, endangered horse breeds and populations, however the maintenance of native breeds does not result in profitable business.Some populations and namely rare horse breeds need to be re-evaluated yet, others need to be saved from extinction very urgently. Enlisting the aid of modern science gives us many tools for reaching decisions to realize the preservation of different rare populations and not to use solely pedigrees, conformation and historical data. The molecular genetic approach and the phenotypic estimation of the values of different breeds is more and more useful. Hence, it was the right time for Horse Commission of EAAP together with Rare Breeds International (RBI) to perform a session devoted to the topic of progress in molecular genetics of horses. This book summarizes the papers on molecular genetic description of horse breeds and some aspects of evolution of horse species.
