OBJECTIVE To evaluate deafness in American Paint Horses by phenotype, clinical findings, brainstem auditory-evoked responses (BAERs), and endothelin B receptor (EDNBR) genotype. DESIGN Case series and case-control studies. ANIMALS 14 deaf American Paint Horses, 20 suspected-deaf American Paint Horses, and 13 nondeaf American Paint Horses and Pintos. PROCEDURES Horses were categorized on the basis of coat color pattern and eye color. Testing for the EDNBR gene mutation (associated with… CONTINUE READING
