Same goes with ANY NH horse, and even if you breed with a NN mare, you still have a 50% chance of the foal being NH, and able to pass on the disease.

I guess my point is - if everyone stopped breeding HH and NH horses, we would eradicate this awful disease within ONE GENERATION. How amazing is that? Being actually able to stop a fatal disease? That's very rare and we have the power to stop it.

Here's a video of a mare having an attack, I will warn you that it is disturbing

Now, how cool is it that we can actually stop this disease from existing? We have that power! Now we just have to use it!
Definately agree with JDI on this one - very well said. I didn't really know much about HYPP before, but I've just done some research and I completely agree with all the others about not breeding him. Personally, I wouldn't think that you would get many, if any, offers from people wanting to use him as a stud, when they could easily use another stud who is N/N and have a foal knowing that there is no chance that the foal will carry HYPP (Providing the mare is N/N). You've already got 16 foals from him, and frankly I think you are very lucky to have all the offspring clear of the disease. I'd say to geld him, or just stop using him as a stud, and bring up one or two of his N/N foals as new studs. I think it's worth listening to what everyone has said and considering their suggestions - they're all good horsepeople and are just doing what they think is best.

Whoever said money can't buy happiness didn't know where to buy a horse.
