I would much rather have an average healthy horse than a "phenomenal" horse with a life threatening disease. I am not saying you need to slaughter all the horses that are positive. But there is no good reason to breed a horse that is going to pass on this disease. There is another board going on right now where the OP wants to know if people would buy a N/H horse. It seems right now that there is a general opinion of NO.
Why would you breed something that isn't going to be able to find a home?
We do not need to add to the problem by breeding more.
