I have been looking around at studs to past my time and kind of play match maker with my mare. I have no plans on breeding her anytime soon but I just wondering how it works if you breed two horses with similar bloodlines. As in breeding my impressive mare to an impressive stallion. Is it anything like inbreeding? Or would it be ok because there are other horses between Impressive and the current generatioin?
I've just been curious about it.
And here's another question which may get a little heated. My mare is HYPP nh and if I did breed her, I'd keep the baby and would never sell it. Is it bad to breed a HYPP positive horse to a negative horse?
