HERDA question?

The filly I'm lookin at is descended from Poco bloodlines. I was wondering if you guys think I should be concerned? Here's her pedigree:
Should I be concerned or do you think i'll be okay?

If she shows no signs of being affected by the disease. And you don't plan on breeding her, I see no problems.

If you are going to breed her later on, I would have a tested or ask if the owner has tested her to see if she is a carrier.

Well.. I'd still get her tested. HERDA, doesnt always show when their foals. It can happen when she gets older. I'd test her. This from the UC Davis Vet Med. " The condition typically occurs by the age of two, most notably when the horse is first being broke to saddle"

I'll ask if she's been tested yet then ASAP

My soon-to-be foal's great great great great grandsire is Poco Bueno, and my breeder is testing her mare for the disease. She's definitely not afflicted, but she could still be a carrier. Whenever I found out about HERDA, I contacted my breeder right away to see if the dam had been tested yet.

It's not uncommon for a Herda afflicted horse to not show any signs of the disease until it is started under saddle. There are signs you can see on a younger horse but you've got to know what you're looking for as they can be very subtle. She only has PB on one side of her pedigree so worst case, she can only be a carrier and she will never have any complications from the disease.

With the PB thing, The Poco blood comes from the non-PB side, so, should she be okay?

My opinion is to test. Just get rid of the anxiety all together. If she tests positive, then worry about it.
