How to take a sample

 

 

 

 

1. Grab a bundle of hairs from the tail or the main of your horse.

 

 

2. Wrap the hairs a few times around a mane comb, as close to the skin of the horse as possible. Stand a little to the side of the horse, and pull downwards to get a bundle of hair. The DNA is in the roots of the hairs, so make sure that the sample contains the roots!

 

3. Collect 2-3 bundles of root hairs and place the hairs in an envelope. Please remember to use separate envelopes to each horse!
