Anyone who needs to know more about inbreeding/linebreeding might benefit from speaking with those well-versed on the topic. I have found Denise Gainey and Arlene Magid to be invaluable resources. Denise is a wealth of knowledge, with years of research with regard to compatible crosses and complimentary bloodlines. She herself just produced an exquisite colt by this very method and he is quite something. Arlene, who does breeding consultant work, can advise people who may not have as much knowledge. An expert on such matters, she has decades of experience to draw on. She is worth the money.
As was mentioned, the internet is not always the best source; people's opinions are nice, but they're only opinions- often presented with a bias (as is human nature) and not much research, unfortunately. When it comes to real life, I find people like Denise and Arlene, as well as other friends who are actual (successful) breeders to be the real meter as far as making correct, educated choices. They've taught me such a great deal of knowledge and perhaps they, or people with a similar level of expertise might be more helpful to those seeking accurate information based on experience and practical, applied knowledge.
With something as important as potential lives being brought to this earth, real experts are who I would turn to to make such important decisions.
