    Haha! I knew I was going to get that question! Yes I do, which is why I wont be breeding him. He is N/H. Now personally, I don't have a problem with em, my grandmother loved Impressive horses back in the Day, she's owned 11 N/H & we never had a episode with any. However, I know people do- & I would not want to have one bred that someone else would get & then have them not feed/exercise/supplement like we do & have an episode. Plus, I just like him- not the fact he's a stallion. Supposedly, his baby's have all been negative, (the one I have is Neg) but not worth the risk :) People have asked lately, but just not what I want from him.

    I do have to say, I think its great everyone is aware & cautious of that now. I remember when I was like 12, in a show ring.. a horse had an episode. The lady whop owned him had NO IDEA what the disease was! I asked her bc the horse had Impressive in his show name, & I knew about it from ours because my grandmother was very cautious about what they ate & whatnot so she was always lecturing, & this woman was just CLUELESS.

    Ahh Glad I didn't offend you with that question. I have had and owned Impressive horses and had no problem with them, but I have never owned n/h or h/h horses.

    No Offence, we've had alot N/H... weird too bc none of them were like heavy muscled or whatnot, my gram just LOVED their look. I personally, don't mind them... but don't love it bc I do have to be cautious what they eat & make sure they get thir electrolytes & whatnot.

    Good suggestion as the sire is N/H...

    I know he is, which is why I asked right away. Every Impressive bred horse should be tested asap. Like I said, it doesn't bother me none, but I would not breed him bc of that. I didn't take him for breeding, I took him bc I like him But, it is good to know so that you can take the precautions to prevent an episode. Either way, if I like the horse, I like the horse- that's not a deciding factor for me personally.

    First I wanna say that he is so pretty. He looks very golden to me. As for his color I suck at this thing but if his sire was creme and his dam a I think you said brown? I don't remember after reading this whoel thread then the creme + brown would be right as most are saying.

    Also what are you guys talking about with the Impression gene? I think gene anyway. I have never heard of it.

    Not impression gene. A stallion named Impressive passed on a genetic disease known as HYPP. Index
