FINALLY....a Video-clip to show the clinical signs of a foal with Cerebellar Abiotrophy !!

In the past I have found plenty of good video-clips on CA in dogs and in Cats. Many , many in fact. But none on CA in Arabians.

This video clip has been supplied by the University of Leon's Vetenarian Faculty Professor Juan Rejas.

A MUST Watch.

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5103903077538043566&hl=es

It shows:
Distinctive Head Intention Tremors
Hyper-metric Action with exaggerated lift in the forelimbs when crossing over the pole on the ground
Demetric Action or lack of fine tuned movements when attempting to nurse
General Ataxia when moving around paddock

You might have to view it several times to familiarize yourselves with the CA Clinical Signs.

Remember ! This genetic condition has been found in ALL Arabian bloodlines without exception.

Please avoid breeding it. Send in your hair follicle samples !!

The AHA 's latest issue of their On Line Magazine MODERN ARABIAN HORSE has an update on Cerebellar Abiotrophy on page 104 of their October Issue:
http://modernarabianhorse.epubxpress.com/?site=1

It is an important read!

And yet another video-clip of an affected filly. This time an older one as a two year old. Her owner assures us that she was just as ataxic as a yearling as the previously posted video of the 2 month old CA affected colt. With the passing of time this 2 year old has adapted to its surroundings and has less visible clinical signs. However when startled or stressed she reverts right back to head intention tremors and hypermetric action.

Many cases of Wobbler Syndrome are mis -called wobblers when in reality they are either light, moderate or severe cases of Cerebellar Abiotrophy. CCM (true wobblers)are seen in the arabian bloodline but not as often as thought. Ataxia--Loss of muscular coordination, especially in the limbs, can be a clinical sign of EPM (treatable), CCM (also treatable if caught early enough and diagnosed by myelograms), and toxin poisoning ( accompanied with liver dysfuncion and high temperature). CA however being a neurological condition is unique in its combination of hypermetric movement (ataxia), head intention tremors, lack of Menace responce (but with normal vision), totally normal muscle development (no atrophy or lack of tone), and has a normal appetite -growth - intelligence. In fact the affected horse appears normal in all aspects other than it has no sence of balance or spacial & depth perception. Carriers can not be discerned from a normal "clear" horse. Two carriers bred together will produce an affected foal 1:4 times or 25%.

Now this is really an exciting accomplishment !!
AHA has added a special section sponsered by ESRE and the Arabian Horse Foundation which deals with GENETIC CONDITIONS in Arabian horses. This has been a long haul and needless to say myself and our research team are very very pleased to have the American registry finally on the same track.
http://www.arabianhorses.org/education/genetic/default.asp

There is a very interesting collection of articles available and contact information.

Freebie time is over everyone !!!

Due to the amount of samples sent in to UC Davis and the cost of running the lab analysis for extracting the RNA and making the comparative analysis to what is already on their database, Dr Cecelia Penedo has announced that there will now be a fee of $50.00 for each horse sample of hair follicles.

Payment can be made by Credit Card.
Contact Sabine Nooteboom for payment info at anooteboom@ucdavis.edu She also may be contacted by Fax at (530) 752-3556 or by phone. Telephone: (530) 752-9333

If you have any questions regarding CA testing, please contact the technician in charge, Leah Brault, at (530) 754-9526 or lsbrault@ucdavis.edu.

Samples are still to be sent to

Send 30-40 samples , identified, to Cecelia Penedo at

Cecilia Penedo
Horse Research - CA
Veterinary Genetics Laboratory
University of California
One Shields Avenue (For Overnight or 2-Day Delivery use: 980 Old Davis Road)
Davis, CA 95616-8744

And an email to her at mctorrespenedo@ucdavis.edu with the registered name, number and parentage and request that Dr. Penedo analyse the possibility of CA carrier lines in your arabian(s) and that hair follicle samples are being sent. If you have a link to AllBreed for you horse(s) that does speed things up a bit. You can copy and paste the links to the pedigrees into your email for each horse.

With great pleasure now after over two years of drumming away at the importance of expanding the research on CA by submitting samples, I am most pleased to announce the addition of an in depth article on the F.O.A.L. website. F.O.A.L. = Fight Off Arabian Lethals. Curiously the association was originally initiated through the efforts of Bazy Tankersly for the study of Cerebellar Abiotrophy and not for SCID as many people think.

So Yet Another Giant Step Forward !!!

F.O.A.L. = Fight Off Arabian Lethals

Heads Up people !!

Check out (www.foal.org ) Link on to Cerebellar Abiotrophy

Submission Forms, explicit instructions and even a current pre-signed Import Permit required to accompany samples from Non- USA territories/countries are included. Testing is being done at UC Davis in California.

Also of great importance is the newly updated List of SCID Clear/Carrier horses, a voluntary contributed list of names. This can be seen on the Test Kits and Forms page:
http://www.foal.org/TestKitsandForms.html

Dont take the chance. Test first for SCID and CA before breeding.

Following a thread on www.straightegyptians.com
entitled: Marajj Was Diagnosed Pos. For Ca, Cerebellar Abiotrophy


http://www.marajj.com/index.htm
LATEST NEWS ...

Dear Friends, Clients and Breeders:

Recently, a foal by Marajj was tentatively diagnosed as having a condition called Cerebellar Abiotrophy (CA). The only way a foal can be affected with this condition is if both parents are carriers of the gene. Although there is no direct genetic test for this disease, they have identified certain markers they believe indicate which horses are carriers.

We then sent a hair sample from Marajj for testing to see if he had the markers associated with the gene. The test has confirmed that he is a carrier of the condition. Carriers show no symptoms, but if bred to another carrier there is a 25% chance they can produce a foal with the condition, and 75% chance the foal will be fine.

A foal affected with CA will begin to show symptoms of head shaking, and lack of coordination. These symptoms generally appear at 6 weeks to 4 months of age and continue to worsen. There is no cure. To find out more about this condition, please go to the site www.vgl.ucdavis.edu/genomic/cerebellar/

A carrier (such as Marajj) when bred to a non-carrier will never produce a foal with CA. Therefore, we would like to encourage everyone to have their mares tested prior to breeding in order to avoid the chance of having a foal with this condition. If your mare tests positive you can then decide if you wish to take the risk in breeding, or else would like to choose a different mare to breed.

For anyone who is already expecting a foal by Marajj and may have some concern, a hair sample of the foal after it is born can quickly determine if it will develop the disease or not.

Enclosed you will find all the forms and instructions necessary for testing your mares and foals if you wish.

While we realize this is an inconvenience, it is our sincere wish for everyone who has supported Marajj to have a beautiful and healthy foal.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns, or for more specific questions, you can contact Dr. Cecilia Penedo, the vet in charge of the ongoing research into this condition, at mctorrespenedo@ucdavis.edu.

Sincerely,

Albidayer Stud

The public announcement that World Champion MARAJJ is a carrier of Cerebellar Abiotrophy has come as a shock to many but is also a giant step forward for Arabian breeders.

My heartfelt congratulations to the Albidayer Stud and owner Sheikh Mohammed Bin Saud Al Qasimi for disclosing the status of MARAJJ on their website in Latest News Updates on 2 December 2008.

Dawn Martin, stud manager, has received numerous emails congratulating them on their courage for disclosing MARAJJ's CA CARRIER Status and writes that his full sister has been tested negative.

Hopefully many more breeders/owners will test their horse for CA and be as forthright with disclosure.

It is only in this way that we will be able to erradicate this gentic inheritated disease from our breed.

Test and breed selectively. For Submisson Forms see www.foal.org Scroll to bottom of page on Cerebellar Abiotrophy for links to the new Testing page at UC Davis or go directly to:

Just had the test results for my filly Panndora back from America.NN means she does not carry the gene responsible for CA.It is a very simple process to have them tested,you just download the forms,fill them out,take hair sample and post.I heard back within 3 weeks and that was including Xmas and the New Year.Come on all you responsible owners and get testing.At least it can make a differance to this dreadfull disease being eradicated.

This story is to inform everyone that Cerebellar Abiotrophy (CA) is true, real, and heartbreaking and can happen to everyone breeding Arabians…
This is our story. We are very small breeding operation… We have 3 mares and one stallion. We have only had 3 purebred foals ourselves. Our stallion (PS Final Edition) does have 5 total purebred foals. We had a chance to use a nice mare (SPA MZ Katrina) with comparable lines to our stallion so we did. We get her in foal woohoo. Wait a whole year yes I mean a whole year as the mare went over. We get a nice filly (GS Yesha Mishkin). We just love her and her pedigree is nice older lines. So, we breed the mare back. Next year a very nice filly nicer than her older sis at this age (GS Aesha Zaphina). Luckily, it was late in the year so we decided to leave the mare open for 09. We wean the filly at 4 months. Right up till weaning she was fine…. About a week into weaning I noticed she was having small head tremors. I figured she was just having a hard time with weaning, as she was younger than I liked for weaning but mare was getting thin and baby was very healthy. She finely gets over “Where’s the Momma?”.
So I put her in with her older sister for the winter. All this time I keep thinking she is not getting better but worse… Now, her symptoms are front legs out, head below withers, her head and upper part of her neck shake all the time and when she moves she is very stiff in the upper part of her front legs. Plus when she gets up from laying down she gets up with her hind first pushes front legs out stands at a bow stance, shaking then slowly brings her front legs one by one into position. Her tremors are so noticeable that non-horse people notice. About this time I see a small article on CA. So I start researching. It all comes back to CA. I contact Cecilia Penedo At UC Davis. She informs me that it is very likely she has CA. In go the tests. Back come the tests. Zaphina is an AFFECTED CA filly. Yesha is a Carrier. Of course our stallion and the mare are carriers. For us it is what to do now? We will have Zaphina put down After I get good pics and videos of her so people can learn this is a very real thing. As per our breeding well I am not sure cause on Jan. 27, 2009 we lost our ½ Arab pinto stallion to colic. I can say this we will test from now on…… I am giving a general background about myself just to inform people that I am not new to horses. I have had horses for over 30 years… We have been breeding for 13 years mostly 1/2s. We show and trail ride. I was in 4-H and have worked on several breeding farms in my years. I also work part time at a vet clinic. I am not looking for sympathy I am just informing people that Cerebellar Abiotrophy (CA) is true and real. Do your self a favor and your future foals test before you bred this spring…

This is such a sad tale but I for one would like to commend you for having the courage to put it on here.You must have been totally devastated to discover the filly was affected.To also have the others as carriers as well must be such bad luck.I have had my filly tested even tho she will probably not be used for breeding for several years.I am sure many people think "it wont be me" but you just never know.I wish more would have the test done.I notice that hardly any british breeders seem to have tested.Just hope they are going to before the covering season begins.It is so easy to test that there really is no excuse!

Thanks for your kind words....
I think the word really needs to get out about CA. Especially that testing is available.....One way you could help is to put an ad on one of the sites over there that advertise arabian stallions at stud. MOst of them over here are free for text ads.
What I have done is basically ATTN. Arabian breeders.... Testing is available for CA.
test before you breed this season. Kinda ad. with links to UC Davis.. Not all people are members of forums or get the Arabian publications. I think the more the words is spread the more people will test....
Great job on testing your filly.. Is she on the list of tested horses...

Hello Trina,

yes my filly is on the list her name is Panndora.That is a good idea of yours about putting a few adds up on various sites.I suppose we think because we have heard about CA everybody has.Although I do know several breeders who still think it wont happen to their stock.The simple fact is nobody knows just where it is lurking,I am sure before that some were diagnosed as having Wobblers etc.I will look to seeing where I could make it more public,and getting more people to test.

Great glad to hear you will try and do some ads (I challenge others reading this to also post some ads).....THANKS... I must say I did not know of CA til this filly as I said in my post before. Since all of this I am so driven to inform...... Glad my hubby is very understanding as I have burnt dinner a few times lately..
CA IS NOT TO BE SWEPT UNDER THE CARPET/OR MISDIAGNOSED ANYMORE.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New article on the progress of research for genetic mutations has been published by thehorse.com and can be read here:
http://www.thehorse.com//ViewArticle.aspx?ID=13605&eID=105210

The increased use of the SNPs machine process has enabled giant steps forward in all genetic research!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also becaue of the growing list of Publically Disclosed Test Results from the CA Marker Scanning Test provided by UC Davis's VGL and Dr. Cecilia Penedo, further updates will be posted on the website which Trina and GS ARROW RANCHES has so generously donated to the internet at: http://zaphina.tripod.com/index.html

Trina has developed a "one stop" website where all public information on CA has been collected and posted. This will also enable internet viewers acess to information which they may have missed on Net Discussion groups either by not knowing about the condition or by not being a current member.

Please help support further research on this genetic issues by testing your horses and if so inclined, by disclosing their status.

Thanking you for all your support to date,

Lisa

Sometimes you get an AHAA! moment and you start to think back.
I bred a filly from my mare years ago and at the time I just thought the filly was a victim of a 'birth accident' ie cerebral palsy/cerebral anoxia. She was unable to stand , was having spasms and also she as a strange colour too,for an Arab, if that is of any significance!!!!
I had her put down almost immediately.
I know that the mare never ever had another foal like that, or even lost a foal,but I don't know about the stallion.
Maybe that foal had CA ???
