Hypothetical Breeding Situation

Ok this is all hypothetical, but I want to have a breeding farm some day of Quarter Horses and I need to know these things. So lets say that I have a mare that has really good blood lines and as part of those blood lines Two Eyed Jack is in there 5 times with that she has some other famous lines. Jiggity Jack and Grey Badger II is bad there and Grey Badger III.
So say I had this mare, and I found a Stallion that has great lines too. He has Two Eyed Jack in there, lets say... 4 times. He also has Jiggity Jack lets go with 3 times. He also has King I will put him in as a Great Grandsire.

So with all this information hypothetically made up, and because of the lines they have great conformation and have been proven winners. Do you think the baby would be amazing? Or would it be too much in the bloodlines and something would be wrong, again, I don't want to be attacked, it would be difficult and extremely expensive to find these horses, but I want to know, because I love Two Eyed Jack lines and that is what I want in my horses.

It depends how far back in the pedigree each horse is. Line breeding is NOT inbreeding.

It would depend. One like was stated how far back are these lines. Also these are older lines and ones you do not see in performance horses very much. I know I am not at all a fan of TEJ. I also know most of the others that show and breed as I do do not like him in their horses. Although I know some ropers who do.

It would come down to what you wanted to do with the foal and what the sire and dam have done. Along with many other factors.

Ok, I'm just trying to understand like lineage and line breeding better I guess. Like how much is too much? Are you only supposed to inbreed closely (father daughter, half brother, half sister) Once every couple of generations? I have been trying to read them and determine how people are breeding.

It depends on the line. Some lines you can line breed quite a bit and others not at all.

Like King Doc O'Lena and such are known to be very nice when line bred. Hollywood Jac 86 not so much. It is not now much is too much but what lines are good for line breeding and which are not. It is no different then what lines cross well with others and what lines do not.

I like line breeding it pulls in some things you want but with the good comes the bad it can also pull in not so good things research the horses you want to breed see if there was any thing in them like hypp or with poco bueno had a skin thing. And I love poco bueno but wouldnt line breed him. I love king breed horses and leo had a great mind. Dash for cash very fast. What are you thinking of breeding for raqcing barrel gaming. See that all matters. If you want to talk pm me. Or mail me ill look for the web sites on linebreeding I loved them lots of info

Ok cool thanks. I know that Grey Badger II had breaking problems and so did his foals, but he was a great horse. HYPP is something I am for sure staying clear of. I just wrote a paper on it actually. But Two Eyed Jack had a great temperment and had points in everything including english stuff. I want to breed all around Quarter Horses that could be good in all disciplines.

Poco horses are great horses for line breeding. HERDA is not a problem as long as the horses are tested and you know what you have. Just like anything in breeding. You need to put weight on everything and then weigh the good with the bad and then make the best choice possible.

There is always a lot of research to be done when considering breeding.
