Dear all!! 

the AQHA has just released a new panel test for all genetic diseases found in QH: 

I have sadly just put down a filly last week purchased at the legacy sale in 2010 with PSSM. Her name was Revolution Dunit. I am extremely upset and needless to say hurt as my filly was in pain because the breeders (perhaps out of no fault of their own) breed 2 horses which gave a horse who was a carrier of PSSM. We have right now, the tools to make sure we do not RISK even passing these genes on... And why even play russia roulette??? 

That I got the bad end of the stick because people want to make money... I cried for nights on end because it was about the money... I held my horse as she was put down... Why why why? Because humans want those famous horses as you mention below at the expense of the health of the horse. I cannot wrap my head around it at this point. 

Anyways... i hope everyone can do their part and not breed horses with issues!!!

I'm so sorry you had to put down your mare.

It is so heart wrenching when there is absolutely nothing you can do to help your horse.
