Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
OFA are saying rcd4 has been found in English Setters as well as Gordons and Irish Setters, and that rcd1 is the same in Irish Setters and IRWS. I have never heard of rcd1 in IRWS so I wonder why they think its the same gene?
The very one! When we were at the height of the investigation into rcd4 in Gordons she announcd at a godon health seminar that we needn't worry as we could ourcross to the other Setter breeds....the silence in the room was charged!!!
Dr Sarah Blott is the Quantatative Geneticist at the AHT and my conversation with her actually had nothing to do with outcrossing of any kind. There are other things to talk about, you know.
