    Luck of the draw?
    Ok I understand what you mean now. sorry. It is, but I guess since the rate of mutation is so low anyways, and there are so many possible mutations he just got a strange one.

    I think this is a good point. I have to think it's certainly possible that any number of other non Impressive horses have had/have HYPP, and... just like in people, there are certainly many, many other 'bad' genetic mutations lurking around out there.
