Early Signs of HYPP?

I was cleaning my mare's feet out tonight, and I noticed that when I did her back feet and picked them up her butt muscle/leg muscle was trembling pretty badly. This has never happened before, that I've noticed.

She has Impressive in her bloodlines, but VERY far back.

At first I thought tying-up syndrome, but I hadn't worked her or anything. That's why I'm wondering if its not early signs of HYPP?

She's also been lame lately. I had her feet done yesterday, since she was due I didn't know if that was her problem or not. There is no heat in her legs, and she doesn't have an abscess (sp?). I know her being lame PROBABLY has nothing to do with her back legs trembling, but I thought I'd mention it.

As I stated before I had her feet done yesterday along with my other three horses so I'm going to have to wait a paycheck or two until I can get the vet out to have her tested. Running a pretty tight budget lately.

What else could it be?

Do you have her pedigree handy that you could post? If so, maybe some people will know if the horses in her pedigree are n/n or n/h. Id suggest having your vet check for hypp and they will be able to tell you what could be going on if its not hypp.

Is she registered? We can do a quick search of her name to see if her ancestors were tested or not. She could be shaking because of the lameness.

As far as HYPP early signs. There aren't any. Either the horse has it, or it doesn't. There are different severity's in the attacks that may occur but there aren't many symptons. A few, but not many.

You don't need the vet out to check. Just pull some mane hairs and send them to the lab. If you go to the AQHA site, all of the info you need is there. The cost is about $40.

I was thinking a vet could get faster results.

I don't see Impressive anywhere in her bloodlines (if that's her).

There are only a couple labs (seriously, I think there are 2) that run the test. But the results come back fairly quickly anyone. I think within 2 weeks.

Oh, I've never really dealt with it so I didn't know.

Ok, thanks! I thought the vet would be easier but I can do it myself too. Plus, I want to get her checked out incase its something else too.

Yeah, that's her. She does, but its extremely extremely far back. The person I bought her from said she was and I called her up, and was like "are you positive?". After a bit of a search, I found him but like I said its FAR back. Lol.

We had a horse last fall show signs of HYPP. He is an unregistered quarter horse palomino. His owner was getting him saddled up and his muscles were flexing in waves all along his body. My barn ower called our local vet and he said to give him some Karo syrrup in his feed for the next few days and keep track of his spasms. The next day, his muscle spasms were gone and our vet said that we may never have another issue with him again and so far, we haven't. I felt so bad for his owner because she was so worried about him. That is the only experience I have ever had with HYPP.

I'm really hoping she doesn't, because she's my main barrel horse and the only other one I have started the pattern last year. Plus she's only 11, and I've had her for three years.
