I assume you can get a blood test or something? I honestly don't know.

Thanks and Gig'em!

What macslady is saying is that a way breeders, who have HYPP in their lines, sometimes choose to get rid of affected HYPP horses is through an auction. They send them through with no papers and a good luck wave to the person who buys them.
Therefore, since this filly came from an auction with no knowledge of who her dam was, it'd be worthwhile to factor the cost of getting her tested for HERDA and HYPP into her purchase price.
In my opinion, as a general rule, any stock horse/stock horse cross without 100% known bloodlines should be tested for HYPP just because it is such a prevalent disease.

I think both tests (HERDA and HYPP) just require mane hairs, with roots attached, to be sent and tested in a lab. I think it's generally $40 a test? I'm not sure.

She's really cute! What would you be planning on using her for? I think she'd look really adorable in an english saddle.... :)

Okay, thanks for clarifying that up for me :] That definetely could be a reason for her being at auction, as it seems strange that she would be sent to auction with no papers and from a good sire.
I haven't heard back from the owners yet, but if they don't know the dam, I will definetely do the testing if we liked her.

I think she's adorable too! :] I would use her for western and english. I'm not sure which direction of discipline I will be taking, so I'd like to get a horse that has potential to do it all.
I will do a little reining and trail riding. I am also hoping to do some cross country and jumping as well. Basically it will all be for fun, just local shows no competitive stuff :] Unless, I decide which discipline I will specialize in.
Can't decide between western or english though, I love both <3

So, the owners emailed me back and said that the people who bred her forgot which mare she was out of. They left her in a field until she was 2, then took her to auction.
That seems fishy to me, why the breeders didn't register her and how could they forget who the foal came out of?

That is fishy. Some horses aren't registered like mine because they can't be... But there's sounds like a lame excuse unless they have like 8 broodmares in a field and just leave them there andbnot check on them or their foals...

Thanks and Gig'em!

I went to the breeder's site, and the third horse down on this page looks like it's her.
New Babies of 2009

It says her dam is Maromac Koi.
Maybe I should contact the breeders

I would definitely contact the original breeders. Theres no reason that they wouldnt know the dam that I can think of. But she is a cutie. Even with no papers (once you get that all cleared up) she could be a great little mare. My colt has no papers but he is by far the best horse I have ever trained. But get the papers and bloodline thing straightened out before you go any deeper into this

*Insert something witty*

^^ I agree.
But since they are reputable breeders, they would have registered her. Unless there was a reason not to, such as her being positive for HYPP or having some problem with her.
But, I will contact them before I do anything.

I can't find the breeders email. But, the owners emailed me and said that the breeders said she "slipped through the cracks". They couldn't sell her as a weanling, and left her out to pasture for a couple years. Then, they took her to auction.
Makes me wonder why she "slipped through the cracks". And why the original breeders wouldn't have registered her when she was a weanling, like they do for the rest of their horses.
I emailed the owner to see if she had the breeders email to contact them about her.

Is there something wrong with the contact info on the site you posted? Am I missing something here?

I would contact the breeder WITHOUT the current owner, but that is just me. Something is not right with this story, and if you contact the breeder without the owner you may get a whole nother story. Then you may have to decide what is true.
