Ocular Squamous Cell Carcinoma Update – Testing Now Available!

Researchers at UC-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory investigated SCC in the Haflinger breed and determined that a recessive mode of inheritance explains some of the genetic components involved in the development of this cancer. They also discovered a DNA marker that identifies horses at higher risk to develop limbal and/or third eye lid SCC. The VGL now offers a DNA-based test for the only known genetic risk factor for SCC in horses, which you can find here.

Announcing Changes in Fall Haflinger Event

The AHR Board of Directors announces changes in October Haflinger Event. The Board has made several changes in the fall event, the first being the location. In response to requests from the Futurity exhibitors to improve the venue for the Futurity, this year we will hold the event at the Eden Park Equestrian Center. Additionally, the format will change with the elimination of the auction and the introduction of the Haflinger Showcase. The Showcase will allow exhibitors to show their horse in the arena, advertise the horse the horse for sale on the internet, all for one flat fee. The goal of this new approach is to allow Haflinger owners to access a new sale market and to support the all age auction sale in the Spring. Be part of this new event and get your reservations in now. See the AHR website for forms or contact Dave Ayers to receive a form in the mail. Watch for more information on the Fall event on Facebook and the AHR Website.
