“I am including a paid breeding to World Champion, Superior Halter Horse “RH Stars N Stripes” with purchase of this mare. Resulting foal will be double registered APHA/AQHA.
“Heavy muscled Yeah, there’s the freakin understatement of the YEAR Quarter Horse mare. Huge hip and forearm. Not a super tall mare, standing just under 15 hands, but she is STOUT You don’t say… and is as wide as she is tall She’s a brick, dadadaaa, howse. Consistently outproduces herself height wise.
“Sired by World Champion Sire Can Spicuous and out of a daughter of Kid Clu.
“Very sweet and easy to handle and her babies all have the same disposition. SHE IS NOT BROKE TO RIDE. The only reason she is for sale is that I am getting out of halter horses completely.
“High percentage roan producer and is a true red roan, not a sabino like so many horses advertised as “roan”. Easy breeder, easy foaler.
“N/H but does not have any issues and is not on meds.
“Last three pics are of her last two foals, and RH Stars N Stripes (the stallion she comes with a breeding to.)”
Oh hey look, the blatant perpetuation of an easily eradicable disease. Well gosh, that sounds like fun. Here, let me pre-breed the mare for you to ensure her faulty genetics continue! -said no responsible horse breeder ever.
And yes, it’s quite clear she has no issues whatsoever with the disease that causes involuntary muscle spasms producing the exact type of muscling you see on this mare – sheer coincidence, I’m sure.
If you’re unfamiliar with HYPP, check out this article from UC Davis. They also have an interesting little HYPP breeding chart:
Psst, breeders! HYPP is a genetically dominant trait.

“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.”
