Thanks :]
It was heartfelt, and I always take the opportunity to try and educate people from my experiences when I see something about HyPP.
I'm posting a whole bunch of photos of Annie [and I] in our journal, so.. go have a looksee if you want :]

First off, I have to say I am sorry to hear about your mares condition.
I don't know what I'd have done if my Skeeter had ever shown signs of hypp while I had owned him. It would have been devasting.

Secondly, it's so nice to see someone (and don't get me wrong, there are others on here too!) who so openly can care and love for their horses. One can easily tell the strength of your bond through your words.

Thirdly, excellent post as well! I couldn't agree more with the quote that I have added above.
So, many thanks for sharing your experiance with us!

I stay away from impressive bloodlines just because of the paralysis that is passed through the genes. if the horse is hyppN/N then it doesnt worry me much at all but I won't breed any of them its just a horrible waist of a horse if they have it and its so cruel what they go through. I don't think it makes them a bad horse at all by any means but I am always wary of the HYPP.

N/N horses will never pass down the mutation so it's totally fine to breed them (if the are breeding quality of course). I don't think that hypp N/H or H/H horses should be be registrable (with a grandfather clause attached so that, for example, starting 2010 they will not be registrable). The whole think could be fixed if people cared enough.

I haven't read through this topic, but your post stuck out to me.

Im no horse expert on horses but I dont think it mater as long as the horse is healthy and happy, and a good horse for you what does it matter who the horse mom and dad are?
