Going to see about testing my girl in august

I am wanting to test her for her agouti, obviously she is at least A_ but I would like to know if she's AA I think LWO and Splash may not be bad ideas...Do you think she needs Cerebellar Abiotrophy Screening Test (CA), Hereditary Equine Regional Dermal Asthenia (HERDA), Glycogen Branching Enzyme Deficiency (GBED), or Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis (HYPP)? I know CA is in Arabians and the other three are found in QH's. CA, I did a quick search on bloodlines that are known to be affected by it and I didn't see any in her, but someone who is more familiar with that stuff might notice something else. I know HERDA is primarily associated with Poco Bueno lines and HYPP with Impressive which she doesn't have either but she does have their ancestors... Obviously I don't want her to carry any of those and I seriously doubt HYPP as she is not symptomatic at all. But her AQHA granddad (as far as I can tell) has not been tested.

Here's her dad with the QH side.

As far as I can tell, I wouldn't worry about HYPP or HERDA. HYPP comes from the Impressive line, which I don't see in her sire's pedigree. Since he's the one that carries QH, the dam wouldn't carry it. HERDA comes from Poco Bueno, and I don't see him in the sire's line either.

The other 2 genetic disease tests I don't know anything about.

She doesn't come from any lines that I know carry splash so I honestly wouldn't waste my money on that.

I would test her for LWO. It can be hidden for generations.

Yes, I'm pretty sure that she doesn't have splash or any of the diseases. She does have a nice wide blaze that goes down to her bottom lip, like her sire, but her dam also has a wide blaze. She only has one little sock and a little bit of white on another foot.
