Abstract

The hemoglobin phenotypes and the gene frequencies of 223 Cheju native horses were studied by starch gel electrophoresis. The results obtained were as follows: 1. In the hemoglobin phenotypes, three phenotypes, HbAA, HbAa and Hbaa, which were controlled by two allelic genes. $Hb^A$ and $Hb^a$, were observed and their frequencies of appearance were 65.47%, 30.04% and 4.48% respectively. 2. The distribution of gene frequency was calculated as 0.805 in $Hb^A$ and 0.195 in $Hb^a$.
