Well, mare is on way to her new home. She has a copy of the AQHA papers, dated 1/2007... Says there is nothing about status of HYPP on the paperwork.. so time will tell..

How frustrating...At the barn when I am working I see these things too...I feel your pain, but sometimes the ignorance can only be dispelled by someone (or unfortunately, some horse) getting themselves hurt...

Since these are known genetic risks, I would like to think that ALL registries affected by them would require testing for registration. Unfortunately, there are a lot of different priorities in the horse world. It took FOREVER and quite a fight to get the AQHA to require testing for HPP. All you can do is educate yourself, but there are so many people out there who want to buy the pretty horsie....and act impulsively like this woman is doing.

I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!

What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.

you did what you could..hopefully the horse will be fine & the child will be safe..and you will know that you cared enough to say something!

Horsepower: the extraordinary capacity of a horse to elevate the human spirit!

My castle is my barn ;)

You know how it goes...there are some people you can't tell a darned thing. They just won't listen, gotta learn absolutely EVERYTHING the hard way. Don't take it personally - it's their problem more than it is yours. We've got this going with my stepkids right now - both of them are making truly hideous career decisions, neither one is interested in hearing input from anyone of the senior generation on the subject at all. My great girlfriend went through this with her daughter too - had to stand by, biting her tongue, while the daughter married a total pillock and a thorough bad egg. Took her 3 years to discover the mistake and another 2 to fix it.

What can you do...you see something going awry, you say something about it, warn people that maybe this isn't the best idea, and if they blow you off, it sucks to have to watch the disaster unfold exactly as you expected it to. As hard as it is to say "I love you" I think it's often even harder NOT to say "I told you so."

Human beings would be so much better off as a species if we had the ability and inclination, overall, to actually learn from the mistakes of others, to consult with and listen to the experts and our elders. But no. Some huge portion of the population is basically pink monkeys...
