Ho­mozy­gous + Non­car­rier

EQUUS - - Applied Genetics -

If a horse is ho­mozy­gous— mean­ing, he car­ries two copies of the same gene or mu­ta­tion—for a dom­i­nant trait, even if he is mated to a non­car­rier, 100 per­cent of his off­spring will in­herit a gene for the trait. For ex­am­ple, if a horse is ho­mozy­gous for the gray gene, all of his off­spring will also be gray.
