Once my friend found out she had an N/H.. she gelded him IMMEDIATELY.
Its good that AQHA is no longer registering H/H horses.. but so long as they are still registering N/H horses, the halter classes will still be won by HYPP babies, and people will continue to breed them for BIG money because of their appearance. and what really chaps my hyde is the Halter Judges. I mean.. initially, before they knew anything about the disease, all the HYPP horses would win because of their muscles.. but now they KNOW about it... and the HYPP horses still win in all the classes.
Either they need to have an N/N set of classes, and an N/H set of classes, or they need to stop showing N/H all together. They are really two completely different breeds, in my opinion. Especially compared side to side.
Blargh.. i hope i didnt just start an argument ^^; Me and my friend gripe about that daily though, LOL.
I had a mare, C Note Appeal, who was a grand daughter of Impressive (and N/N) She had 2 babies, each of them were grulla paints! WOO! I sold her to get Jasmine though.. my Buttermilk Buckskin.. she is bred through King, Wimpy, and Leo <3<3<3<3 she has Skipper W in there too. King is like, RIGHT THERE on her papers.. I LOVE it!!! =)
One of the most common TB horses on pedigrees is Tommy.. he is EVERYWHERE, lol!!!
