Definitely. The show lines are equally as "polluted" as the field w/ EIC. And yes, I do think that the better drive lines had more of it-- just a casual observation, but I produced an Affected that was the result (after the test came out and I could trace it) from breeding 2 Carriers that got their gene from show CH's. I know I was not popular at the time for pointing it out, but hope I prevented more affecteds by doing that. As I told the stud owner, I still love what I got. Actually, I can't imagine now not having done the breedings I did. It's a real dilemma.

MN, many were EIC carriers or affected.
