I would call a vet and have them place the horse on a feed plan. I would not play a geussing game with HYPP.
The big thing you need to realize is that a horse with HYPP can go it's entire life without ever having an attack, but then again, it can have one out of the blue. They can have attacks on a regular or irregular basis. Yes HYPP can be controlled with diet but be aware that any change in environement can trigger an attack, meaning any change. Riding, trailering, schooling, showing.
HYPP horses that are shown are usually drugged w/ a specific amount of Ace to help counteract any potential seizures. Personally, I would consider selling the horse.
But definitely consult a vet for feed plans.
Good luck to you and I am sorry you had to run into a dishonest seller.
