Poco Dell is an Offspring of Poco Bueno
Sonny Champ is an offspring of Poco Bueno

You have Poco Bueno bloodlines on both sides, Id get her tested.

Yes, & get your own test, I wouldn't just take someone else's word on something like this.

Her pedigree doesn't show enough to be tested,but it's entirely up to you.

I don't understand this statement. She actually does have PB on both sides. Poco Dell was a son and Sonny Champ was a G son. I do not recognize any known carriers in her pedigree but for $40, you know.

Agreed! Better to safe than sorry.

Someone had said she only had PB on one side of her pedigree so I went with it because it just depends in the persons meaning. She was PB up until a certain point - she is an appendix Quarter horse tho

If you question it at all, always test, not only have the owner's test. You should have her tested as well BEFORE making any commitment to her. HERDA can stay hidden in young horses with no symptoms. It will usually surface when they are started to saddle and will just progress from there. Once diagnosed with HERDA you'll probably have to have her PTS and if she is a carrier she's not suitable for breeding.

It's a common misconception that only full quarter horses are afflicted or are carriers of this disease. If PB is anywhere in the pedigree, even 20 generations back, the horse could potentially be a carrier and if he's on both sides you double your chances and the horse could be afflicted as well. This mare is appendix but she still has QH both top and bottom. (unlike an appendix that has one full TB parent). Both QH trees go back to PB so genetically, she could either be a carrier or afflicted. We have carriers and are producing afflicted horses in every breed that incorporated QH blood. Paints, Appies, spotted drafts, the color breeds (ABRA, palomino, pinto...), grades...

I still don't grasp what you're trying to explain with the "Poco blood does not come from PB" but trust me, anytime you see "Poco" in a AQHA pedigree, it will always go back to Poco Bueno.

No no, I didn't mean Poco doesn't come from PB. Someone had said she would be okay because she was not PB. I was pointing out she's not PB, however she does have PB in her bloodlines
