But if you follow strict guidelines with an N/H horse, it CAN lessen the chances of an attack.

Personally, I would not own an N/H horse for the mere reason that I'm not an Impressive fan to begin with. It's not a bloodline I look for in my performance horses which has nothing to do with the HYPPP issue.
Sadly, she bought the horse with a falsfied N/N test. He'd not shown symptoms prior to going down that day.

Impressive isn't my cup of tea either, HYPP aside. If it was, I'd only have N/N horses. I have several Poco Bueno bred horses, I'd not own one of that line if it was a HERDA carrier or affected. For me it's a matter of why take a chance when there are plenty of other nice horses out there that don't have baggage.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Meanie poopoohead how dare you not like Impressive horses? Oh... sorry. That was my inner child screaming at you.

I have a friend that came dang near close to buying a horse that was HYPP N/H. The owner kept saying... I'm looking for the papers. She finally got her to give the registered name of the horse. I looked it up for her and it turned out to be Impressive bred with the notation on the papers (from when you didn't HAVE to have them tested).

She sent some mane in to the lab and it turns out this horse had been tested THREE times. The lab told her that when they called with the results before they sent them to her in the mail. This chick KNEW the horse was HYPP N/H and was going to sell it and THEN send the papers over after money passed hands.

The horse hadn't had any symptons (that we know of) and was a great horse. Good looker, perfect personality, QUIET...great mover. She sent it back. Too risky, especially since it was going to be for her child...

"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"
