hypp question.

I thought that if you breed a N/H horse to a horse that has NO impressive in it then the resulting foal would not have hypp. Is that not right??

The resulting offspring can be a carrier but won't exhibit symptoms.

Nice breeding and her own credentials. Are you looking to buy her or breed her or buy a baby out of her?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

oh no no. Its a stallion. I found a horse that is sired by him and I was just curious about his hypp status.

Most likely the answer for this horse will be on his papers. For a long time now, any Impressive horse is required to have been tested before AQHA will issue a registration.

This is wrong. HYPP "carriers" (N/H) horses can be and frequently are symptomatic. It's not like HERDA.

So yes, breeding an N/H horse to an N/N (non-Impressive) horse will result in an afflicted HYPP N/H offspring 50% of the time.

To add to Bubba's post, some N/H [and maybe even H/H?] will go their whole lives without ever showing a symptom. Some will always show symptoms. And then some more will live a very long time without showing symptoms and then BAM, huge episode resulting in euthanasia. It just depends.

Sorry Bubba - just wanted to clarify (understanding that you were spelling it out as simply as possible). The non-Impressive in the parenthesis does not stand for the N/N, Bubba is just saying that a horse that contains no Impressive blood would obviously not have any HYPP genes. A horse that is listed as N/N DOES have Impressive blood but is NOT a carrier of the gene.

Only an N/N horse or a horse that does not have any Impressive blood would not have a chance of passing on the gene.

With proper care and nutrition a horse that is N/H or H/H CAN indeed go it's entire life w/out ever showing a sign or a symptom. Alot of times what happens to these guys is a heart attack, It has something to do with the production of the glucosomine or insulin.
