Research study conducted by UC Davis tested 1845 horses of 31 breeds, including 143 Curly horses that were not out of the same sire or dam. Of those 143 Curlies, 8 were found to be carrier of the CA mutation associated with CA in Arabian horses, meaning they have one copy and are not affected with the disease. These 8 carrier (N/CA) Curlies all traced back to a popular Arabian stallion used in the 1960's to build up the breed according to UC Davis.

ICHO is now offering ICHO members CA testing through VetGen at the reduced rate of $35.00 ea.
