Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Not applicable as the hair samples from Swedish Warmblood horses were originally collected for parentage testing and stored in the biobank at the Animal Genetics Laboratory, SLU. The Swedish Warmblood Association approved the samples to be used in this research. No additional samples were collected for this study as the Exmoor pony data was available as genotypes previously published by Velie et al. 2016 [CitationRef removed]. Owners of the Exmoor ponies gave permission for their animals to be used, and that study was approved by the Ethics Committee for Animal Experiments in Uppsala, Sweden [Number: C 121/14 and number: 5.8.18–15453/2017].
