your story made me cry. I am so sorry for your loss. I also have an HYPP positve horse although I have always known he has had this. In my opinion her death was at the fault of the breeder that sold Fancy to you. You should have been informed that this horse had HYPP. We have had our HYPP positive horse since he was a weanling and he is now 10 years old. It would have made a world of difference if you could have been monitoring her deit throughout her life. HYPP horses can live good long lives, I know of one that is 16 and he is still doing great.
