History of Caspian DNA Project

 

The Caspian Horse Blood Analysis and Typing Project started in 1990 as

a funded Research Project conducted by Dr. E. Gus Cothran DVM at the

University of Kentucky Equine Blood Typing Research Laboratory in

Lexington, Kentucky. The blood typing analysis identified Blood Group

Markers and Biochemical Markers of the Caspian horse.

 

In 1990 the first group of Caspian blood samples tested was from 3

Iranian registered (imported into England) Caspians and 51 English

registered Caspians.

 

The second group of blood samples were tested in 1991 consisted of 19

registered Caspian horses in Iran, 10 of which were Foundation and the

remaining 9 were second generation. Again in 1993, 22 Iranian

registered Caspians were tested, 8 of those were foundation.

This constitutes the quite impressive base for the funded Caspian

Horse Blood Typing Research Project. The value is remarkable

considering so many Foundation and second generation Caspian horses

are included. Between 1994 and 2000, 180 DNA hair samples from Iranian

Caspians were added.

 

In 1994 The Caspian Horse Society of the Americas founded by Patrick Carmack, became the first

Caspian Society to make blood-typing (later in

2002 DNA) mandatory for all horses entered in its Registry. Starting

in May 1994, when 2 stallions, Kineton Kalif and Runnymede Karamat and

6 mares, Mote Shalaby, Mullacot Bathsheba, Mullacot Chestnut,

Runnymede Beryl, Henden Shazee, and Shepton Terraneh were imported to

develop the first pure bred Caspian breeding program in the United

States.

 

Between 1994 and 2009 the USA breeders have personally paid for and contributed samples *(blood/hair) from

152 imported and 492 US born Caspian horses to this project. Donations paid for an additional 204 samples for Caspian horses in England,

Australia and other countries that had not been previously tested have

been included. For a total of 848 horses and more

to come.

 

Donations also provided the funds required for

special handling for storage, packaging and shipment of the sensitive

and delicate frozen blood samples to be relocated from the University

of Kentucky to Texas A & M.

The USA breeders have always considered parentage

verification and supporting scientific research on the Caspian horse

not only as a high priority but should be mandatory for all Caspian

Societies. The most difficult, expensive and time consuming aspects of

establishing an effective and usable DNA base to use in parentage

verification has been done. The USA breeders have been requiring DNA/

Bloodtyping for 15 years and have paved an easy path for other

Breeders to follow.

The responsibility of contributing to

this invaluable Caspian DNA base must be considered more throughout

the world. All Caspian Societies, breeders and owners must weigh the

value of having a DNA tested, parent qualified pure bred Caspian Horse

verses an additional $35.00 of expense.

 

Not only does DNA testing establish parentage, the samples are

included and stored with other Caspian horse materials for current and

future research studies!!!

 

*Both blood (cost $50.00) and hair samples ($35.00) for all Caspian

horses imported or born before 2002. For Caspian horses born or

imported after 2002, only hair samples were submitted. Each individual

USA owner and breeder paid for the testing of their horses. Owners of

horses born or imported before 2002 paid for both tests on each

horse.
