Re: HYB: questions...

Brad Kasparek was saying something about recessive whites in his catalog this year, Betty, but when I e'mailed him he seemed to be talking exclusively about species iris.  
  If I were a genetics expert, I would think that having lab rats (recessive whites) to work with would be a worthwhile breeding goal, but I'm a little muddy about how a recessive white would differ from an inhibited blue which happens to be white.  I know palomino horses are roughly equivalent to an inhibited blue iris in color mechanics, but a more palomino palomino is still not an albino...hmm... I don't think it is...
  Dang it.... now I gotta go search the eqine color genetics groups...

Paul, are there any characteristics a new hybridizer can look for that will 
tell them if a white is recessive or dominant? Without being a genetics 

If you don't cross them, you can't plant them!
