You are right....I wish breeders would test for it too. I just think there is not a lot known yet about it, even with breeders maybe? When I talk about EPSM, many don't know what I'm talking about. Until this journey, I never knew about it either and especially didn't know it was genetic. Many halter bred QH's have it in their genetics because that is what builds beefier horses.

You have a lot to offer a horse, and there are so many out there now that need a good owner.
Thank you. I'm going to continue taking lessons with my instructor on her horses and go form there. I wanted to purchased a finished reining horse... But honestly after this week I think I'm going to just chill and hopefully the right horse will find me!

I just hope I can help educate people on genetic diseases and how they affect others, my guy was born before the PSSM test, however two of my vets clients are yearlings. One is HYPP N/H and PSSM N/P ... Poor horse

Story Man EPSM / PSSM

I've heard that Jet Deck bloodlines are possibly linked to PSSM, but don't have any hard proof on that. My mare has Skips lad in her bloodlines as well as Jet Deck, similar to your horse. Not sure if that is relevant at all.
My horse Shadow Story Man has EPSM / PSSM. His paternal grandsire is Story Man, who was related to Jet Deck through their paternal grandsire Top Deck, a thoroughbred. This makes Top Deck my horse's great-great grandfather.

My horse also has Top Deck on his dam's side as a great-great-great grandfather.

It is true that this disease is just recently coming to light,but it has been around for along time. There is much more education & talk about HYPP,most people have at least heard of it {Even though they may not have the true facts about it}. HYPP is effects a particular bloodline in the stock horse world so much easier to track potential carriers & testing has become much more routine.Not the same can be said for PSSM It can effect a variety of breeds & bloodlines!! It inheritance is liken to that of Hypp. Horses afflicted ,the symptoms very often are more difficult to manage that a horse with HYPP. YES we should be concerned & yes we need to become aware/educated about this disease. To me this is an genetic Equine disease that we should be most concerned with out there!!
