Abstract

THE cases quoted by Prof. Cossar Ewart from Mr. J. B. Robertson in NATURE of November 10 would be good evidence against the theory that every dun horse must have at least one parent dun or grey if the data in the Thoroughbred Stud-book were absolutely trustworthy. This they are not, and all the cases quoted by Prof. Ewart have in them a very considerable element of doubt. Let me indicate these elements by placing the cases quoted in one column, in reversed chronological order, and the necessary remarks in another column parallel.
