    I would call her The Mary Celeste, after the ghost ship.

    The ship was found under full sail, the 7 person party was missing. No signs of struggle and there were still months of food and supplies left on board. All of the personal belongings were untouched. Tne life raft was missing and the crew was never heard of again. Here's a link

    She's about as see-through and pale as a ghost, it might be a good match :)

    The thing is, it really isn't slim. It's a roll of the dice. Unless both parents were HYPP n/n then she will be HYPP n/n which is fine, but if either parent (or both parents) are HYPP n/h or HYPP h/h she stands a chance of having it also.

    Something I just found about HYPP that might help:

    "Myths about HYPP
    Some people have felt that the disease can be diluted out and not carried to distant generations. This is false because an affected horse has just as much chance to pass on the trait as the affected parent which passed the gene to him. Some people also believe the horse will "grow out of it." This is not true. For unknown reasons, attacks of HYPP tend to occur most often at the beginning of intense training and fitting for shows (age three to seven years old). It is important to realize that horses with HYPP are affected for life. It is possible that older horses do not experience the same conditioning stresses as young horses or owners have discovered the best management strategies for the older horses with HYPP.

    Some people also think that if a horse does not show any signs up to a certain age, it does not carry the trait. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Once again, horses with HYPP are affected for life. There was a stallion and a broodmare with HYPP who did not show signs of the disease until age eight and 15, and both horses only experienced one isolated attack.

    Owners and breeders of affected horses should inform prospective buyers of the management constraints these horses have and the potential for future episodes of HYPP."

    HYPP could happen while on a ride, the horse could just fall out from under you. In severe cases of HYPP the horses basically suffocate to death.

    You can have the test done yourself here for only 40.00: http://www.vgl.ucdavis.edu/services/horse.php all they need are 20-30 hairs with roots to test, put in envelope with check and mail to them.

    Better to spend 40.00 now, than the heartbreak of HYPP and the maintenance and expense later.

    I actually REALLY like that as a name, and it has a meaning behind it (:


    And yes I am aware of the HYPP and I have talked of it prior to purchase, again the test will be done. But still, the chances are unlikely. I know the stud is n/n but I am not positive of the mare, even though she does not have Impressive. ANYWAYS.

    Alright, So.. All in all... I've decided to call her The Mary Celeste as her show name (: and hopefully, if I'm lucky.. It will become her registered name also ( I need to provide them with 6 options.)

    Thank you so much CopperHead for the suggestion !!

    Pretty girl! I'm not a QH person either [or a fan of bay horses], but don't I end up with a Paint and a bay QH! Haha.

    As far as HYPP, Char is right, it can't be bred out unless you stay N/N. An N/H horse has a 50% chance of passing it down and the foal must be tested. An H/H horse will 100% pass it down, making an N/H or H/H horse depending on the other horse. My Paint is also Impressive bred, but I was able to find the HYPP status of her sire and he is N/N so I didn't have to worry about testing her, as her dam was not Impressive bred. I don't know if it will be as easy to find in QH registries, if I had my laptop I would look for you, but it feels like a lot of work on my phone, lol.

    She is a beautiful girl, I hope you have with her! How old is she? I didn't catch you saying.
