    And even if you set all concerns for the well being of the horse aside, how about simple self preservation for the HUMAN? These horses are dangerous without meaning to be. When I first encountered HYPP I had no clue it even existed, let alone how to recognize the signs of an attack. When I went to work at the barn the trainer didn't explain what to look for and I ended up having 2 horses go down ON TOP of me before someone explained about these things. These things were HUGE and let me tell you, not a horse I wanted to be under while it thrashed. They can't get up off you if they even knew you were there.

    Stress aggravates the condition, so how well do you think you'll do if the horse goes down in the ring in front of the judges? And God Forbid, what if the horse went down ON TOP of a judge? Or the Handler?

    It makes no sense to me at all. You cause untold suffering for the horse, increase the likelihood of a human being injured and for WHAT? Good Grief!

    This guy needs a good smack upside the head. Perhaps a few of them.

    THIS is why breeding should not happen in the hands of an amateur.

    The vet came back out this morning. They tried fluids again but he wasn't responding to the treatment. He ended up having to be put down. Yesterday the man was saying if the colt dies he will give them another one. If it really was HYPP that was causing him to get down then I am going to urge them not to take another horse from the guy because it probably will be another HYPP horse.

    I'm surprised this guy can even sell a horse in a 1000 mile radius.

    Sorry to hear about your friends colt. That is just a shame

    Funny thing is they just gave the horse to the family. No money what so ever.

    I hope someone will send a mane clipping in for testing from the dead colt.

    The AQHA colt would have had his HYPP status marked on his papers if he was of Impressive breeding,so they should know his HYPP status.

    I don't think the colt was registered.
