Possibly Bringing Her Home, What do you think?

This is TNS Cool N Obvious, She is a registered QH mare 16.1hh, HYPP N/H non sympomatic, born Feb 2006. The lady is giving her away due to lack of grass, I am planning to go look at/get her today or tomorrow.

These were taken earlier in the year before the no rain spell hit out area.

No offense, but I would not even consider taking a N/H horse. Yes she may be non-symptomatic, but, there is no timeframe for HYPP. It could hit her the day you get her home. It could wait a few months, or never happen at all. But that's not a gamble id be willing to take.

What are you plans for her? Breeding? Id never breed that horse and add to the world of more N/H horses. Trail riding, she could be okay. Anything strenuous? Is likely to cause her to become symptomatic.

You also cannot feed N/H horses like a regular horse. They must be placed on a strict diet. Its likely to be more expensive and time consuming. Are you prepared for that?

If you are prepared for her, then go for it. But I wouldnt risk giving my heart away to an N/H horse. It'd hurt too much if anything did happen.

Just a trail horse. I had a N/H gelding so pretty prepared on the feeding scheduals. I know that doesnt mean she will be the same. I do not plan to breed her, just ride around the house with my other 2 mares.

I think since you are knowledgable on the feeding and other things associated with HYPP I would go for it. She is a nice looking horse. And when it comes down to it how do any of us really know what is going on inside our horses systems? I have had a couple of Impressive bred horses, both N/N, and they were nice rides. You really are her best shot.

Any horse can drop get ill or drop over dead. Yes I know the odds are better for a horse that isn't N/H, but I applaud the lady that is giving her away with her honesty.

I'd say go for it. You already have the knowledge of dealing with an N/H horse, so it sounds like you'll be the best fit for her.

She's a very nice looking mare, aside from her HYPP status.
