I know I asked, but I more or less asked about breeding two impressive horses, nothing to do with Hypp. It's just that my mare has it.

It is nice having someone come into a discussion and know what HyPP is. And its cool that you did a report on it.

Sorry if I sounded kinda witchy in my last post, my boyfriend rushed me when I was at the stable and I was pretty upset over it.

That stinks Kyani!

Looking back to yesterday, I can see why my boyfriend was rushing me. We opened up a business and we needed to get things done before it was dark. He orginally wanted to take pictures, but decided against it. The highlight of my day yesterday was turning my mare out in an outdoor ring and just letting her run. I wish I had brought my camera because she looked amazing! She gets turned out in a small muddy paddock and has no room to run. It really got to me yesterday so that's what I did. According to my boyfriend (who stayed back in the barn) said everyone was talking about it. "look at Vega, she's running and bucking" that sorta stuff.

Then again, maybe she was just showing off to the guys that were there (she's in heat as of yesterday and I think her brain switched over)

Next time I let her out, i'll have my camera in hand and take pics and show everyone!

My horse sensational cheers has impressive bred in her 3 time going up to 4 generations back she is hypp n/n lucky there I would say!!however she is just beautiful I love her so much! The only thing is with impressive bred horses they are kinda 1 person ever with yours being hypp h/n I would not do it matter of fact you probally should get her fixed and just love her like she is.

You are very lucky for your horse to be n/n. I'm not doing to be breeding my horse, I got bored at work and was looking at studs and was just plain old curious. I would get her fixed, but I don't have the money for it. As of right now she's turned out individually, and whenever my boyfriend and I get our own house, its going to be her, and my boyfriend's gelding ((they love each other))

Vega isn't really a one person horse. She loves other people, especially when they pet her or give her food lol. I've even had my boyfriend's niece groom her, rider her, and walk her and Vega warmed right up to her.

That sounds like a great idea I belive having her with a gelding is the best plan.i have kids they can do things with my impressive bred horse its just she does best with least you are trying to find out more about breeding her before you do it that's good.i seen you saying something about getting a colt/filly you can get one as young as 3/4 months old you will still have plenty of bonding time with one at that young age.

I have had h/h n/h and n/n horses in the past and see NO PROBLEM with breeding a n/h horse, so long as you pick a n/n stud or one that is not of impressive lines at all. Yes the foal has a chance (25% if my math serves me correctly) of being n/h but you could also get a lethal white in paints when you breed overo to overo at the same percentage but that doesn't stop people breeding them together.

There is nothing wrong with having a hypp positive horse and I take great offense to people suggesting that they are mutants that should be spade. The majority of the halter world champions that I have led were N/H or H/H so as far as I am concerned they are just as worthy of any feat that lays before them as the next horse!

Yes on occassion they will have a fit but treated properly they can lead very long and healthy lives, just as an example - if your child had epilepsy would you stop them from ever having children????????

IMO, I Love Lane that is irresponsible and no worse than breeding two frame overos together - which is ridiculous. You have the same percentage chance of gettig LIVING frame patterned horse out of a frame and non-frame as you do from breeding two frames, and then you don't have any chance of producing a foal that is going to live a short and miserable life, either. It's a disgusting practice at its worst and sheer ignorance and apathy for horse welfare at best. (There is NO excuse for breeding two frames, except perhaps ignorance that one or both was frame at all, but then, if you're in the US or anywhere else frame is common, ALWAYS TEST.)

People breed hypp positive halter horses because they think they can get them to build all that muscle without doing any work. It's greedy and money-grabbing and irresponsible. People also breed halter horses with horrible post legs and upright navicular-inviting pasterns doesn't make it right.

And to compare them to children is ridiculous. Children don't go to slaughter when they're not wanted. Children can learn to understand what's happening to them.
Besides, a lot of people with hereditary disease DO decide not to have children. I know at least one person who is heterzygous for the gene which causes cystic fribrosis who insists she will have her partner tested before she ever haves children to ensure there is no chance of them having a child with the disease.
A horse isn't going to care if it never has babies. It's silly to give them human emotions about the whole thing. It's like BYBs who insist they just HAD to breed their mare because 'she wanted to be a mommy'.

Spade = spayed.
And they are mutants - a horse that has terrible, painful, terrifying fits: do yo REALLY want to produce more of those? I'm not sayign they're not worthy of acheiving anything, but there is no reason to continue to nurture a dangerous mutation.

I Love Lane, you seem like a sensible person - I'm surprised you think this way.
