Is it known where the gene originated from in the warmbloods?
- like hypp being linked to Impressive
Frame. I am talking about Overo Lethal White syndrome.
Where did I mention HYPP?
I couldn't find anything about an origin. Might be hard to trace back since it seems to be spread through many different bloodlines just going by the stallions mentioned here.
According to VGL there is a low percentage of TB’s affected which combined with the variety of Warmblood bloodlines affected has some of the people who are investigating believing that the mutation is not recent.
Glad I wasn’t the only one confused...
As wide spread as it is, I have no doubt it's been around for quite a while...
This article says it has been around at least 170 years.
