Re: [RC] HYPP-N/H - Heidi Smith

Horses that are HYPP-N/H will have no problems in terms of physical issues
related to HYPP.

On the contrary, HYPP is not a simple recessive--it is a trait where the
heterozygous horses (N/H) are frequently affected, but on average are not as
severely affected as the homozygous (H/H) individuals.  Personally, I
wouldn't care to ride an N/H horse on anything that requires long-term
physical effort--I've had to deal with too many of 'em clinically, and they
can be heartbreaking.
