HYPP pedigree!

So I've been doing a lot of reading up on HYPP since my horse is of the Impressive line...and I finally paid up and had the test run on my mare to see if she was a carrier or had the gene at all. The great news I got today is that she is HYPP N/N!! YAY!

But I got to thinking, in my research to see if I could "figure it out" by looking up the horses in her pedigree, I thought I would start a thread for HYPP in the hopes that owners will post their horse's status here and others can know whether their horse is susceptible! Here is my mare's pedigree...I know for certain that her dam is N/N and she is N/N.

Here are some others in her pedigree that I found are also N/N through my research...

Coosa's Breezy Lady (her dam)
Coosa's Stripe

You can tell from your mares pedigree that she is N/N. As there is only one like to impressive and it is already N/N.

This is not always the case if you do not know if the horses in the pedigree are carriers or not however the testing has been around long enough that most of the bigger maned stallions have been tested.

Congrats on the N/N, but..............
If he dam was N/N, why would she even have it? The sire is not Impressive bred, so there was not risk for the foal.........

My horse Oatie (IOALOT) has been tested and is HYPP N/N

Her Grand Sire is Impressive and of course he is HYPP N/H

The genetic disease Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis is traced back to this horse.

I actually dislike horses that have Impressive up close(2-3 generations back). Every single one we have met/owned has had a screw loose. Rebel and Tonka were both buckers, and no matter what you did they always bucked. Rebel also used every single excuse he could to wig out, and the last time he did he dumped my grandmother and put her in the hospital. And it wasn't a spook, it was deliberate what he did. There have been other incidents with Impressive bred horses, but I can't remember them all. It can go either way, but every horse person I have met doesn't particularly like Impressive bred horses. And yet I have one. Thankfully it's too far back to make a difference.

Piper was Impressive bred. HYPP N/N. She was an amazing 2 year old.

I own a grandson of Impressive who thankfully is N/N (though he was gelded at 5) and he is one of the best horses I have ever owned. I have seen a lot of Impressive bred horses come and go through our barn in the last 20 years and the majority of them are really nice horses. I like the mentality of the impressive line, just not some of the physical issues associated with it. HYPP being only 1.

Oh, nearly forgot the link to pedigree.

My grandmother has had experience with at least 15-20 Impressive bred horses. Not all, but MOST were kooky. Especially those who had him as their sire. Granted, it's always different but the ones we have PERSONALLY had experience with were nuts.
