It depends on what breeding you're talking about. Linebreeding is a breeding based on certain animal(s) in the pedigree. Inbreeding is breeding close relatives such as father/daughter, mother/son, brother/sister.

I'm not getting into the Impressive debate since I don't know much about it, but wanted to clear up the terms used anyway.

I have an Impressive daughter. She is a registered paint though. But Impressive is on her papers. She would of made a great halter horse if it wasn't for her dropped hip. The original owners of her were going to put her down after she broke her hip by another horse. My vet asked the owners if she could have her and she would fix her hip. Looking at her you can't tell that she has a dropped hip until she is right on you but she runs and plays just like any other horse. We bred her to our paint stud and she is due to foal in Feb. I can't wait to see the foal and I will probably show the foal in halter as well. Maybe this place will help me to come up with some names for the foal.

My 2 1/2 yr old gelding I have now has Impressive bloodlines. But it is his Great x4 Grandfather. Every horse I have met that has Impressive lines have had such a wonderful all around temperment. With my gelding, I can't expect really to do gymkhana or any speed events, lol, just because he is sooo easy going, but I know he would maybe do good in halter if I ever got the nerve to show. If you want to know more information on "Impressive" himself here is some right here from www.allbreedpedigree.com.

I believe it was a gentetic mutation and have no reason not to believe it. But I feel the inbreeding and/ or linebreeding make it worse and show up more common today. Just becuase he was a great halter horse.

Only from what I have been reading, I believe that horses that look more cut or look like that are HyPP Positive, not ALL the IMPRESSIVE lines. This is something that I found off of a website.

Myth: You can tell a positive horse by looking at it.

Fact: HyPP is a disease that can only be proven through genetic testing. HyPP does not increase muscle mass, but constant electrical firing in the muscles gives the muscles a hightly defined cut that horses without HyPP have to be worked through exercise to obtain. The only outward signs of HyPP are seen during an attack episode. A horse who is not having an episode, will look like any normal horse.

I bolded the part that reminded me of how cut these horses were and it just makes me wonder if they are HyPP positive.

Here is our Impressive bred mare (N/N) and she is indeed very stocky and big muscled. We don't show, but her sister has done very well in halter ...but... it very much depends on the judges. Some judges love the look and some hate it...calling them fat
For our off trail riding, though, you can't beat her for getting you up a steep hill through the woods....she is one strong girl.

The backgrounds are fake. The tail on the dun stallion is fake. Other than that? They're real.

To those who think they are not real.

Here is that first horse, the Dun one at liberty.

Or whatever you call this. It's painful to watch this hulk stumble and drag himself around.

KIDS CLASSIC STYLE

How majestic....
