We used to own a qh mare that was Impressive bred, she was hypp/nn and was a wonderful horse and was BEAUTIFUL. We sold her a few years back because my parents wanted MFT's instead, well, some people came to look at her and just LOVED her....until they heard that she was Impressive bred, they left after that :roll: Their loss, but it is unfair that people won't even look at them if they have Impressive in them.....

My favorite stud is HYPP n/n, I hold no grudge. It is silly that people don't understand that double negative yields no HYPP when bred correctly.
Anyway, out of curiosity, why did you want a positive horse? I'm glad you are breeding negative horses now. We all do things we regret at some point in time.

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!!!

I think it's a bit blown out of proportion. Not all HYPP n/h horses are going to win halter classes, that's for certain. Not all judges are scams, I think it's unfair to say that. Many horses will continue to win because they deserve it.

Sorry for miswording that, I didn't mean that ALL N/H horses win, and ALL judges pick those types of horses. I meant to say that it seems to follow that curve, but I was in a hurry to go feed and didn't word it right, lol.

Some N/H horses don't exibit the heavily muscled traits that other N/H's show. I am just saying that from what I have seen, and from what I have observed at shows, the N/H horses tend to catch the eye of the judges moreso than the other more "standard" type Quarter Horses. I know that not all judges are bad =)

All in All, i've had a pretty bad experience with the whole Halter Horse thing. If they werent HYPP carriers or HYPP positive, they bulked them up so much that their knees were messed up, and they couldn't ever be ridden, and some of the horses couldnt even make it past 10 years old. This is probably why I am so outwardly bitter about that ^^

I still think it would be nice to show the N/H horses with other N/H horses.. and the N/N horses with N/N horses, just to be fair. But I know this would never happen, ever. Its too inconvenient and it would make the shows 10 times longer. Also, who would want to breed with "Grand Champion N/H horse"? LOL you might as well say "Grand Champion With The Means To Create A Diseased Baby", LOL! Its just a fun thought to toy around with ;) though it is an unrealistic thought =)

Sorry about the misunderstanding! =)
