Exclamation HYPP Ancestor?

Just got a new mare this last week - yippee! She's a beautiful blue roan Hancock mare, and an absolutely wonderful ranch horse. The handiest horse I've ever ridden, in fact!

Upon getting her papers (her AQHA # is 4247149: Deep Blue Hancock, by TW Drift Han Lucky, out of WT Miss Blue Hancock), I see the back of it says "This horse has an ancestor known to carry HYPP." I'm thoroughly confused, as I'm unaware of any of the horses on her papers here carrying HYPP.

The plot thickens, though!

Her sire's dam is out of "CO BAR EIGHTY" (2183776), by "UNKOWN SIRE" (0444444). The mare was foaled in 1984, but the unknown sire was foaled in 1901. I'm guessing 0444444 is the standard AQHA answer to an unknown sire for a horse they consider legitimate for whatever reason...

Could 0444444 Unknown Sire be a sort of "mechanical flag" that popped up the "Your horse could carry HYPP" tag to be printed on the back of the paper? Does that make sense? Or does someone see a horse they actually recognize in these bloodlines somewhere to be a real carrier of HYPP? I don't see her lines up on AllBreed, but I suppose I could probably plug them in if it would be easier than someone looking through the AQHA database.

Thanks, all. Let me know if you need further clarification!

I have said what I have said. I have not said what I have not said.

Wanted to add links to Sire and Dam AllBreed:

Turns out "0444444" is actually "TW Roan Hancock" according to AllBreed..
"TW Drift Han Lucky": Tw Drift Han Lucky Quarter Horse

"WT Miss Blue Hancock": Wt Miss Blue Hancock Quarter Horse

Still don't see any Impressive.. I don't even see any indicators that she could carry HERDA. Confusing!

I have said what I have said. I have not said what I have not said.

Unless there is a horse in her breeding somewhere that is related to impressive you don't need to worry about HYPP. Especially if the horse with the HYPP test was neg which it should be since there appears to be no Impressive breeding.

Must be a glitch on her papers then, without Impressive in her lineage it is extremely unlikely that an ancestor carried HYPP :/

Agree with the above. Very possible glitch on her papers - (Impressive is my QH's grandsire, but thankfully she's HYPP N/N)

The Hancock line produced fast horses, racing, barrel racing. In 1997 AQHA demanded that any horse carrying Impressive had to be tested and the outcome was included on the reg. paper.
