    Hyperkalemic Periodic Paralysis is a genetic disease that causes muscles spasms, weakness and can cause the horse to collapse. It can also cause paralysis in the area around the lungs and cause the horse to suffocate. Most, if not all horses, have Impressive in their bloodlines somewhere and is thought to be caused by so much inbreeding.

    AQHA still insists that KingP-234 is their standard. Here he is.

    I would too. When I think QH, his build is what comes to mind. Thick but functional (and lovely).

    I'm not a fan of heavily bred "halter" horses, like this...I want a horse that is functional, just as much as he is pretty...this horse is not that functional at the present, because he is so heavily muscled (muscle doesn't equal strength). I'm the same way when it comes do any animal...Just because it is winning, doesn't mean it's 'well bred' or highly functional. I want both, not one or the other.

    I agree. Without function, whats the point? My friend is actually going to look at that horse tonight. I told her for the 5500 they are asking for him, I could find her 4 nicely bred QH's who are ride ready and trained. She just thinks he's got a great build. Ooooh-Kayyyyy

    Nico looks to be a good example of what I picture when I think of good QH bodies. His angles are good, he is well muscled and from the pictures, he appears to have good bone in his leg and big feet. All good things.

    Is she looking for a halter horse or is she wanting something that she can ride? If she is wanting to ride, you might point out the shoulder, pasterns, and feet on him and mention that he would likely not stay sound for riding because of them.

    Smrobs. I have. I've told her tons of times that the horse just cannot possibly stay sound. He's a draft horse built on arab legs.

    Funny thing about Nico...He is a grandson of Impressive. Somewhere in his lines...things must have gotten tangled! His feet are huge compared to another boarders horse who is Impressive bred also. Izzy's feet look like they could fit in a coffee cup!
