Breeding HH or NH is ridiculous. There is no reason to do such a thing.

Just to add, I am disturbed with halter horses' conformation. They really need to stop placing horses that are going to be lame by the time they are 5. That much muscle on those awful legs just doesn't work, the horses aren't made to stay sound...
I agree 100 %

What would happen to all the NH or HH horses that are already registered?

I don't understand why they would breed horses who either have the disease or might potentially pass it on. To many animals running around with various conformation faults and diseases to take the risk to add more to the industry.

AQHA just changed their rules about registration, only geldings and non-breeding mares.

People that breed for it intentionally are being cruel. It's one thing to end up with an unforseen problem or even if there's just a small chance of a problem, but to breed something that WILL get it..mean.

Have you ever seen one of these guys have an "episode"? I had a nice colt that had it, just after they started being aware of HYPP, and he'd have seizures if he got a bite of sweet feed. His eyes would roll back and he'd struggle to breathe, his muscles locked up and he'd fall over and gasp for several minutes. HORRIBLE to watch. I would never breed for intentionally. He was HH, by the way and I had him gelded, of course. The lady that bought him was well aware of his situation and she kept him a long time, but he finally had THE seizure and and died.

They would keep their registration, but say, starting from 2010, the rules would prevent HH or NH horses from being registered. That would give horses that would already created before the ruling the ability to be/stay registered.
