    I think most people agree that careful linebreeding can result in some very nice offspring. I think that while introducing detrimental genetic treats those can be worked around with careful culling....

    I think the problem with line breeding horses is how to cull. It is very hard to see a horse's potential as a baby and most people would be horrified by a breeder who put down young horses who didn't...

    Don't feel bad about feel, we can't keep our horses in padded rooms. Even if we could they'd probably find ways to hurt themselves. A few years ago I heard a very sad story about a horse who was...

    From my graduate cell biology class last year, some epigenetic markers can be passed on. Mostly this has been observed in fruit flies and it's still not well understood. Epigenetic markers change...

    I really hate to say this, but if you are completely certain she is unsafe to ride and can't keep her you are better off putting her down. There are a lot of nice TB mares out there and unless you...

    My thought since most of these traits are linked to a particular individual who carried a mutation, it's very similar to hemophilia. Impressive for HVPP and Poco Bueno for HERDA. These traits are...

    While it is possible that in a few cases these traites have a positive traite linked to them in most cases it is a result of inbreeding. HERDA is cased by in of Poco Bueno lines. These lines dominate...

    The only thing positive this trait that it's linked to is the paint frame coloring, which has been selected by humans. It's a huge problem when people who don't understand that we are putting animals...

    It seems like if you want to protect genetic diversity, prevent horses from being bred that have recessive genetic defects the best option would be to not allow stallions to produce registered...

    The really sad part is there are so many of these traits HERDA, GBED, EPSM, and MH besides the ones that have already been mentioned. I understand that every registry has issue, but there is tests...

    I don't actually think a horse can pass a PPE. The vet I worked with refused to give me an sort of official recommendation. Even about the mare who was likely to go blind.

    Pre-Purchase Exams

    I'm fairly new to sports horses, I got my first Hanoverian last year. So I'm curious how many people require a deposite before they agree to a pre-purchase exam. It seems this is more common then I...

    I'm starting to derail the OP thread so I'm going to start a new one. Thanks for all the response so far, I look forward to hearing more.

    I'm surprised that a deposit before the vet check is common, not something I ran into when I was horse shopping, but I was mostly looking at OTTB and TB/WB crosses so it might be different with...

    From my experience horse shopping I always did a vet check before I put down a deposite. I brought money with me to do the down payment so it was basically if I didn't leave cash both I and the sell...

    Should I Consider Breeding Her?

    I have a German Papered Hanoverian mare who I adore. I'm considering breeding her in the next few years. However, I'm well aware of issues around unwanted horses, so even though I would only plan to...
