Cover for Basic horse genetics.

We have a much richer vocabulary to discuss genetics than was available to Gregor Mendel. But genes remain abstract concepts discussed using words such as dominant, recessive, reading frame, double helix and Punnett square. Nevertheless, these concepts are useful to make us more successful horse...
