They also said there was no papers. We called them just after we got her. I am so in love with this horse I hope she doesn't have anything wrong with her. She is so sweet and a quick learner. My heart is truly breaking thinking something is wrong. I should have known better than to buy and not look into things. I did find a lot of stuff fishy but didn't listen to reality. She follows me around like a dog. If you guys know anything else about her please let me know. I will be getting her tested. Sad that people don't seem to mind doing this to others.
I would just have her HYPP and HERDA tested. I would be more concerned with the HYPP but while your at it better safe than sorry!
We did receive a horse in for training that the owners bought at auction, a REALLY pretty, nice, good personality mare. So obviously QH, she looked very well bred, for halter, but she was sold as grade with no papers. Yeah, she ended up HYPP N/H. We begged the owner to test her, but that fell on deaf ears until she had a very bad attack... her first one but not her last. Now she is a really nice looking pasture pet.
