After a lengthy search, my family and I have finally found the studs that we think would be a positively perfect match with our Welsh Cob mare. Of the two of them, there's one stud we prefer. However, when we took a look at his bloodlines, we discovered that his granddam is our mare's dam. (Maybe that's why we like him so much? )
So... my big question is: How close is too close?
I know that sometimes horses and other animals are bred more closely in relations than would be considered "appropriate" for us humans, but where does it become a threat to the health of the foal and the soundness of the breed?
This is the stud we've fallen for: Quillane Apollo : Welsh Cob Sport Stallion
