All Our Stallions have NEGATIVE Five Panel Tests

home2There is a new rule from AQHA that all breeding stallions now have to have a Five Panel Test in order that their offspring can be registered with the American Stud Book.

The five-panel genetic test covers:

  • glycogen branching enzyme deficiency (GBED)
  • hereditary equine regional dermal asthenia (HERDA)
  • hyperkalemic periodic paralysis (HYPP)
  • malignant hyperthermia (MH)
  • polysaccharide storage myopathy (PSSM)

The effects of these equine diseases are wide-ranging, from mild and manageable to severe and terminal. Passing these diseases on to successive generations often causes unnecessary suffering and also leads to financial losses for horse breeders.

We are pleased to announce that our three stallions – Snippers Heirogance, Jays Smokin Story and Blazin Chic Olena have all tested NEGATIVE on the five panel test.
