SRCM - I studied up on "Impressive Syndrom" as I had always known it when I decided to breed Beauty who is an Impressive Granddaughter. I didn't understand how the disease was passed down or really any of it. That's the only reason I knew about the labs.

As for Impressive being in your horses bloodlines, I think the previous owner is mistaken, but what you do have is Sonny Dee Bar who was owned by Dean Landers (One of the people that used to own Impressive).

Yeah, I've been Googling for about two hours now.

Maybe, I don't know I thought I saw Impressive in her lines but it might have been a previous horse or something. I'm a worried Mommy. It would've been on her Dam's side, I'll have it check again.

Could I still send the hairs in even though she's not registered AQHA? Or does APHA have it too?

It's something you need almost like air or water. ♥

You can send any horses mane in. Here are some links:

Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis Disease (HYPP)

AQHA: HYPP

You can send the hairs in and it doesn't have to be through the registry, but farmpny is right... Your horse is not impressive bred. Impressive was foaled in 1969... anything far back on the dam's side predates him.

AQHA by 1997 was demanding HYPP testing and the status was on the papers. Now, any horse that is HH can't be registered. Paints used Impressive as he put a lot of muscle on his babies, guaranteed to win halter classes. What is the name of the dam and some of her lineage? Most of the horses carrying Cool are carrying Impressive.

It really is pretty simple. I had contacted this lab
Horse Testing - Equine Genetic Testing
about testing a prospective buy, since I wanted to know the status for not only HYPP, but HERDA and other genetic disorders that may not be apparent just looking at a youngster.

On the site there is a form the Equine Testing submission form. Open it, print it, follow the directions, send the $$ and the hair samples as directed, and your results will be available usually within 2-4 business days of receipt of the sample. Accessible on their site (to the owner only) or via email. They will also send you a hard copy via snail mail. On the form is also the pricing. HYPP and HERDA are $30 each or $50 for both.

I have not used them, as we decided against the horse, but I did save the info and will use it if I look at another. Sure is cheaper than having the vet do it, which I had to do with a grade horse I had years ago who showed signs, but was negative. (his issue,believe it or not-the cribbing color sitting off circulation to his brain when he stretched his neck-causing seizures)

Good luck-IMO-it is worth the $$ to have the piece of mind.

I suspect the trembling is related to bearing extra weight on the lame hoof. Common. Or it may demand to put it's hoof down to relieve the load on the lame hoof.

Your horse has no Impressive in its pedigree. Impressive was born in 1969 and your pedigree goes all the way back to the 50 s. I think you have a lameness issue that is causing your horse to have some muscle spasms. You should consult your vet.

I looked at that pedigree & I too saw no Impressive breeding,yes she does trace to three bars a couple times.
Was this shaking when you had her foot up of did she do it at rest?As Saddlebag said it could be related to weight bearing /pain. A horse trembling/shaking can be other things{Lameness,pain,PSSM,Tying up,stress etc},People fear HYPP & tend to jump on that. I would watch her for anymore trembling signs & for soreness. In meantime it never hurts to have your horse tested for hypp,if it is a possibility or set your mind at ease.
