That looked horrible! Why wouldn't they move the baby out? He could of get hurt. I don't know much about the HYPP, just the whole video looks cruel to me.

i dont no much about hypp but to me the foal should have been moved out of the way but not away that she couldnt see the foal other wise she could of gotten worse or streesed out...
and another thing...WHY...why even think about breeding a hypp mare to me i think that is just plan crulty.
she couldnt even stand and she was freekin out the foal and also it can be genetic im pretty sure.

nah this is a good post i just dont understand people sometime.

I am having a mare checked for HYPP prior to a possible purchase. Am I correct in thinking that you only want to breed horses that test N/N??

In my opinon, your absolutely right in your thinking, but it all depends on who you ask! Some halter breeders want N/H horses because they believe the horses tend to build muscle quicker and with less work yet tend to be less symptomatic then an H/H horse. If you want a foal that is HYPP Negative(N/N) then you have to breed N/N to N/N. Otherwise if the mare you are having tested comes back N/H she will pass the gene on to 50% of her foals. It's a dominate trait and only needs one parent to pass it on! I personally would not breed a positive(H/H or N/H) horse even if it was to a negative(N/N) one. I don't know if that was any help or not, its just my opinon!!

Yes you are correct. IMO it is irresponsible to breed anything less than a N/N horse. It is just perpetuating the disease.
