It's common, but it can still lead to problems. In Standardbreds, you are seeing so many line-bred horses that are showing abnormalities. The most common is small, mismatched feet, or deformed feet. NOT good in any horse, but especially a racehorse.
In QH's, isn't that where the HYPP problems with Impressive came from? Was he super line - bred? BTW, I LOVE Impressive horses, I don't want to bash them! Way back I had a daughter of impressive, and she was a great horse.
