The Carey Mutation - nCry | CryCry
Similar to the calico pattern typically seen in female domesticated cats, Carey is a mutation which only physically shows on Ballator mares. Carey causes large irregular patches of black or that are darker than the base coat on the Ballator’s body.
When a stallion carries the Carey gene, they become sickly, weak, and have poor calcium levels. The lower calcium levels often result in hoof, horn, bone, and teeth deterioration and/ or breakage. Most stallions who express Carey die in the womb; this is a condition known as Lethal Carey Syndrome (LCS).
Homozygous and Heterozygous Carey are identical in expression.
