If this guy was in the business of breeding he probably would have registered the foal,he probably knew the colt was H/H so he would not have been able to register him,had no use for him & hence gave him away

Both of my AQH's have the impressive gene, and neither of them are positive for HYPP. I don't think its that hard to avoid, the guy is just an idiot. Someone should send that guy to slaughter.

I own a Impressive bred horse..Didnt even no it until his papers came in the mail. I bought him from friends of mine (so I thought) His sire died at the age of 3(heart attack). Who was never tested,my horse isnt papered either the papers I recieved was just a copy of both parnets papers..Anyways my horses brother also died at a young age so I plucked 30 hairs and sent them in and he is negitive thank God.. Point of the story is there are alot of crappy people out there that don't give a crap.. And the animals are the one to pay the price.

I'm so sorry to hear that the colt was lost but you're probably right about what the status of the next colt will be too.

That is absolutely outrageous! I have nothing against impressive bred horses being that the sire of my foal is impressive bred,but that is absolutely irresponsible. I would never even think about breeding without testing. That's just cruel to the foal. Geesh!

Has it been confirmed that the colt was HYPP positive? Toxic weeds can cause the symptoms the colt was having, the black tongue, etc. Because I own an n/h I did a lot of research on this and nowhere did I come across the black tongue as a symptom. It could have been something the publications I read didn't contain but I can only go by what the published research said.

Itīs hard to believe that someone with a sound mind would purposely breed N/H or H/H horses. I believe AQHA should ban N/H horses from being registered, and end this problem for good. As long as N/H horses are allowed to be registered we will continue hearing this kind of stories. I have a foal with Impressive in his siresīs line. Since his sire is N/N thereīs no change of my foal being possitive, which would have been a deal breaker for me. Besides, in every registration horses having Impressive explicitely state the HYPP status.

Sorry, but at this point in time there are so many grade horses that carry HYPP that AQHA banning it isn't going to solve the issue.

ANY horse of unknown breeding should be tested for the disease in my opinion.

Are many people breeding to grade stallions?. At least with AQHA banning horses carrying the mutation, people willing to register their offspring will have a reason for not doing so, and hopefully this fact will contribute to increase awareness among prospective horse buyers. I agree with the fact that every horse of unknown breeding should be tested.

It's not just the stallions. Mares are just as much carriers as the stallions. What do you think happens to the unregistered horses? Someone goes out back and puts them down? Don't think so. They can and do get run through auctions and selling sites just as well as the registered stock.

People can and do breed grade horses. Pwetty Kolor = 10000 babehs! To some people and it doesn't matter if the horses in question have papers or not.

Assuming that a grade stock type horse will not be HYPP is just asinine. It is more than possible for them to be so.
