A little off topic but similar symptoms.
I have owned my horse Flynn who's suffered from some form of azoturia for a year now and if I had known I would have had these issues when I bought him, I wouldn't have.
I love the horse, so smart, brave, beautiful, and affectionate.
He's a joy to work with but I find myself scared to ride him and trigger the azoturia, I can't imagine having a horse with HYPP.
It's just too much stress for me.
Since I own and love Flynn already and he has no value to anyone but me now, I'm trying to work out a way to control his symptoms and make it work.
I wouldn't buy a horse with HYPP or chronic azoturia again but now that I have one I want to make the best of it. We all love our horses and its hard to see them suffer when you can't cure them, its just not something I would want to go through again.
