HYPP positive breeding!

Can I take a moment to rant and yell??!! I just had the worst experience I've ever had with horses due to someones stupidity.

Today I went over to my boyfriends house. He owns two horses. A quarter horse colt and a paint filly. Well around 3 we went out to pasture to feed and found the colt down. We called his mom up who brought along the guy that had given the colt to them. The man said that he was having an HYPP attack. Not only was pretty much every muscle in his body extremely tense, but his tongue was swollen and black and at times he would thrash around and get himself where he couldn't breath. We gave him kero syrup and waited, but nothing went for good. We got the vet out who started him on fluids and by the third bag he finally fought himself to his feet with a little helpful pushing. That colt ended up being down for four hours, in thriving pain and suffering because of that kawerfkwdcha. They are getting blood work done to see exactly what caused him to go down but it sounds like it was a bad HYPP attack.

I DISTINCTLY heard the guy say he BREEDS for HYPP foals...DISTINCTLY heard it. I wanted to turn around and slap that guy.

I can understand wanting to have the Impressive line if he's going for halter but breeding to have HYPP? Did you ask him why?

No. If I would have said something it probably would have been harsh. I heard him say the colt was halter bred, but he also said he breeds for HyPP.

He probably is breeding for N/H foals and on occasion breeds an N/H stallion to an N/H mare and they get the odd H/H foal, which he gave away. Lovely. That's heartbreaking because if the foal is H/H he probably won't live a long happy life.

If he's N/H and just severely affected, they'll have 2 choices. Either learn to spot the beginnings of these attacks or put him down. Having had more than one N/H horse suffer from these HYPP attacks and fall down on me, I'd not recommend keeping him. I used to groom for a lady who showed QH, Paint & Pintos and of course, being halter bred, every last one of them was N/H. Not something I would knowingly want to put any horse of mine through, for sure.

That makes sense to me Dreamcatcher, and more than likely he gives the culls away.

Its just extrememly horrible. The guy was telling us all to just leave the colt be and he'll end up dying on his own. Its a harsh reality because I sat out there for four hours watching him thrive in pain, having to keep his head to where he could breath. Keeping such a horrid genetic disorder around is cruel to the animals who suffer through it. The guy should have told him this could happen. But the reason he didn't is because he said the colt didn't have a fit at his place.

Euthanize the poor colt and then go shoot the breeder, I'm reasonably sure it would be justifiable homicide. Just kidding on the shoot the breeder part, but seriously people like that!!!!!!!!!!

The poor boy went down again during the night and got his back feet stuck under the bars of their pen. Though according to them he isn't doing what he was last night. Sounds like thet might end up having to put him down.

From what I've heard the reason why Impressive was so 'good' as a halter horse was because the constant muscle spasms help develop muscle, and a lot of it. It helps make for beefy horses, kind of like hereditary steroids with lots of nasty side affects.

Why need a halter horse that is so beefy like that in the first place? I don't know. At the cost of the extreme suffering of tons of horses, just to force them to bulk up. =\

Yeah. H/H or N/H foals should not be bred period. Be it for halter or not. The suffering these horses go through for man kinds pleasure in showing makes me want to smack someone upside the head.
