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?

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.
