One of the nicest and one of the most beautiful horses I've ever been around was an AQHA World Champion. I really loved him and he was treated better then most human beings. Looks in pictures can at times be deceiving, The Money Broker is so much more beautiful in person.

I have seen what wins at the LOCAL AQHA shows, and I think that some people are taking it way too far. Not all people are making their horses look like COWS. Which is what the buckskin and the bay looked like. That is not my idea of a horse that could ever be athletic enough to ride. That bay was a yearling did you say? I do have to ask myself what exactly did they do to that horse. Hurray for the AQHA for cracking down. By the way AQHA is going to stop letting Impressive bred horses hypp n/h horses into the registry. Guess they have been getting a lot of complaints from honest horse people.

Thats good. We have a horse at our barn with impressive breeding, but because she is 6 I don't think she has hypp....

Hyperkalemic periodic paralysis (HYPP) is an inherited disease that leads to uncontrolled muscle twitching or profound muscle weakness, and in severe cases, may lead to collapse and/or death.

• HYPP is listed as a genetic defect in AQHA's rules, along with Parrot Mouth and Cryptorchid conditions.

• To date, HYPP only has been traced to descendants of IMPRESSIVE, #0767246.

• Having negative (N/N) results on file may prevent a horse's offspring from being tested.

Possible results of HYPP testing are N/N, N/H and H/H.
HYPP is inherited as a dominant trait, which means a heterozygous (N/H) stallion or mare bred to a normal (N/N) horse will result in approximately half of the offspring being affected and half being normal. The rare homozygote (H/H) usually is severely affected with the disease and will pass the gene to its offspring 100 percent of the time.

Hypp can be pretty scary

Just because I love one horse doesn't mean I promote over-bulking.

There are still some that do wonderful with well thought out breeding, proper exercise and wonderful care. These were all things the Money Broker had. He was tall, made a huge impression and was near perfect conformation versus insane bulkiness - thus, rightfuly being a WChampion. He is an older WChampion, times do change through out the years, it seems. I respect Money's breeder, boarded at his private stud farm for years and am fully aware of the fairness he gave to each stud.
