If you know his bloodlines though, you may not need to test. If the Impressive horses in the bloodline are NN that is.

I haven't got him registered yet but I have seen his parents papers and he does have impressive in his bloodlines.

But his dam and sire weren't tested.

I am not sure how much you know about HYPP and so I apoligize if you are already aware of how it works but the reason I mentioned if you know his bloodlines maybe not needing to test is because IF the horse or horses that have Impressive in their blood are HYPP/NN then they can not pass it down. If the parents of those horses are HYPP/NN then they would not have it and therefore would not have been "tested". If that makes sense.

Here is a link to the five panel test that AQHA offers:

I think the parents weren't tested mostly because the people that own them don't know anything about hypp and hadn't even heard of it..

Get him tested if you don't know. 2 horses at the barn I work at are posative. Its not a friendly thing to see.
