Does anyone think this could be why my horse if falling while sleeping?

We had the vet come and take a hair sample today to test him for HYPP.

The falling while sleeping is certainly alarming. Horses have a locking mechanism in their legs that allows them to sleep standing up. If his locking mechanism not working, that may have other implications. I would guess it might be neurological. I can imagine that it might be related to a (possibly old) leg injury of some kind, but probably not if it is affecting all his legs.

I hope you get some information with the HYPP test (thanks for the update). If it comes back negative, do you think you could consult your vet about other possibilities? He might be able to give you some suggestions, or other ideas of tests he could run.

We are definitely going to rule out what we can.

Still waiting on the test results. Hopefully that is not the case.

Got the results today.

He has the heterozygous Affected Gene (HN). Not sure where we go from here, we will be contacting the vet tomorrow.
