Foals born in 1998 and later tracing to IMPRESSIVE will have the following statement placed on their Certificate of Registrations:
"This horse has an ancestor known to carry HYPP, designated under AQHA rules as a genetic defect. AQHA recommends testing to confirm presence or absence of this gene."
Beginning with foals born January 1, 2007 and after, all descendants of IMPRESSIVE, #0767246, must be parentage verified and HYPP tested unless their decendant parent has already been tested and found to be N/N. Any foal that tests H/H will not be eligible for registration.
The APHA has no such requirements or rules.
BTW, our "Lady" (left in the picture) has Impressive in her bloodline.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
