Question What you think about Impressive line and about HYPP?

Hi out there, im new to this post thing, but I have a question to all AQHA owners or fans of quarter horses. I am a big fan of Quarter horses and own two of them myself. One I own is a granddaughter of Impressive, her name is Abby and is negative on HYPP. I really like the Impressive line but alot of other horse people I know, do not like or trust the impressive line, due to HYPP. So anyone who owns one or nows the line, do you like the line?

I like the line just fine, however I would never own nor breed a horse that was not a carrier. They may be fine horses, I just wouldn't like to take the chance.

We had an HYPP filly that was out of Impressive Quest son of Impressive. She was a beautiful horse and if you were to put her in the pasture with the horses we have now, you would have picked her as the best horse.
Unfortunately she died from HYPP complications. I'll never own another.

We own and show halter horses, so most of our horses have some impressive breeding in them. If your horse is N/N they are no different than any other quarter horse out there. The gene stops there. We have had several impressive horses that turn out to be wonderful pleasure horses as well as for halter. Most of these horses are very intelligent. If you have an N/H horse you need to be very aware of how to take care of it. We no longer breed any of our N/H mares, but do have one still on the farm. She is non symptomatic and is ridden as a trail horse but just better not to breed her than worry you are passing an undesirable gene on.

I would like to breed my mare, but she is 21 years old and she is enjoying retirement with her "man" and girl pal. Also I agree with you on being careful on breeding the line. Just a question, have any of you guys head of a cutting horse named Doc Dees Pepsy?

Our mare, Lady, is in the Impressive line and is N/N. She is one really stocky girl, but quick and sure footed. A good trail horse and loves kids, too. We don't show, but her sister has won ribbons in halter, too. They're both really fine mares and I have no problems at all with the line.

I do not like the line, I think that Horses that are carriers of HYPP or have HYPP should not be breeding.

I do agree that there are some lines that should not be bred, but don't you think the ones that don't carry it are fine? Oh and was wondering if you have ever heard about a mare named Doc Dees Pepsy?

There is absolutly nothing wrong with Impressive bred horses that are N/N, they are the exact same as other quarter horses. I too believe that no HYPP horse should be bred, but that doesnt make all Impressive horses bad. Impressive was a beautiful horse and his descendents are as well. My colt is double Impressive bred, but he is N/N because he came from a resbonsible breeder. Chex is gorgeous, has the BEST temperment and is going to be a great all around horse someday. I would definetly own another Impressive bred horses, as long as it was N/N. I know of someone that breeds her N/H mare, it angers me to no end, she is the kind of person that gives Impressive a bad reputation.
