>>>> HyPP isn't restricted to just QH's and Paints either, it says Arabians, Appaloosas, Pintos and other stock breeds may be at risk. Any horse that has Impressive in it's bloodlines. Here is the website I got most of my information from, I found it really informative.

Where that website says that "there is now anecdotal evidence (from horses for sale sites and breeders web sites) that HYPP may be crossing over into the Arabian Horse Association,", they did not qualify that statement with the fact that it would have to be HALF Arabians only....NO purebred Arabians would have ANY lineage to the QH Impressive-- the Arabian Horse Assoc. Does not allow ANY crossing to ANY other breed for registered purebred Arabians.

>>>>> And I said any horse with Impressive in it's blood could be at risk. So if a horse, any horse, doesn't have Impressive bloodlines, it obviously isn't at risk. Maybe I didn't state that part clear enough.

There are over 100 purebred Arabians that have the word "Impressive" in their registered name, including some named simply "Impressive", with various spelling differences. They are of NO relation to the AQHA Impressive... but if people see erroneous or incomplete statements such as "there is now HYPP crossing over into Arabs, so avoid bloodlines with Impressive".... do you see where this causes unnecessary and perhaps damaging confusion and the further spread of misinformation?

While there is some good information on the site you referenced, IMO that website also makes some statements that are not 100% accurate, and/or are outdated. It is written by a private individual/indiviudals, not researchers or scientific experts.

IMO other, more technically accurate reference sites are--

The HYPP info page at the Veterinary Genetics Lab at UC Davis--

The HYPP facts page at AQHA--

Not to belittle all of the research done in these posts but the simple statement would be:

If a horse, any breed has IMPRESSIVE in it's bloodlines, it could potentially have HYPP. So if a person has a horse, that is IMPRESSIVE bred, then be sure to test it for HYPP. It's an inexpensive test. If your horse does test NH or HH, then don't breed it.

You can also just check to see if the status of the sire or dam of your horse that's Impressive bred has been tested if its N/N then your horse is also HYPP cannot skip generations.

Right. My baby didn't have to be tested because both his parents were HYPP/NN, which automatically made him...HYPP/NN....

Right! If I was in the market for a horse that had any Impressive in its history I would have it tested or want the results in hand no matter what the breeder told you. People lie unfortunately Especially when you get into some of the cross bred unregistered horses.

We also have to remember that the HYPP gene is a mutation of a gene, any horse could hav etaht mutation at any time!!

We need to keep in mind that it is the AQH Impressive and not a horse of a different breed with the same name.

An Arabian, TWH, or any other breed using the same name will not carry the gene. So far it has only been a linage of the the Quarter Horse Impressive that may have HYPP.

I did TONS of research to try and see if Vega's sire (Impress me Shanon) was Hypp positive or not. I looked at his stud page and it didn't mention a thing. I also looked his name up on a list and I still didn't find anything, but he was NH, therefore passing it down to Vega.

I would rather just spend the $50 to get the test then rely on stuff over the internet.

But the statement regarding what breeds HYPP is present in is still not accurate. Purebred Arabs are not at risk for HYPP, and posting things that suggest that they are is not helpful.

Also, there are many horses in many breeds named "Impressive" or with the word "Impressive" in their name that are not related to the AQHA horse Impressive responsibile for HYPP.

Why not take an extra minute/write an extra sentence to make the statement accurate, to avoid confusion and mis-information? Heck, you see from just this thread that there are people that will take it to extremes and avoid the QH and related breeds altogether, just because HYPP exists in one bloodline.... what if people start avoiding Arabs altogether because they read that "HYPP is getting into the Arab registry".... or they avoid Arabs and Saddlebreds and Morgans and Thoroughbreds because they read "any breed where Impressive is in the bloodlines is at risk for HYPP".... since all of the above breeds have individuals in their registry named Impressive....?

Mea culpa mea culpa I'm very guilty of doing that, never thinking of other breeds with Impressive names. Thank you for correcting me I promise I will always specify AQHA with the word Impressive when discussing HYPP from this day foreward.
