Hee!Hee! Hee!Hee! a little sick I know but from what I gather it happens alot!!!!!! The sire of my Qh was bred agains't one of his daughters. All in the pursuit of the perfect horse.

Doesn't in breeding cause deformities etc.... Or am I just being naive?
Isn't there laws in studbook rules about such things?

I believe so to first question but I think the rules vary from group to group. I only found out that info about Chinita's Sire because its posted under his progeny on net in QH society. He sired a mare called Poco Royal Jewel and then was bred agains't her to produce Miss Poco Pine. I think a fair bit of inbreeding goes on when a stud is trying to isolate certain desirable traits...but I hope they police it enough to not cause inbreeding! Bit Gross!

No. That means that the mom's dad was doc bar and the dad's dad is doc bar that is very good to have a double breed doc bar horse I have one she is awesome I also have a double breed poco bueno horse. It is not inbreeding at all though it may seem like it. If it was AQHAwould not reconise it.

In-breeding is sometimes necessary amoungst certain limited breeds.
When you buy or breed a horse, often the owner will tell you the percent of line-breeding. Generally, there is often a low percentage for breeds such as friesians, cleveland bays, ect. The breeders want to maintain purebreds, and with horses being limited, line-breeding is often necessary. Fortuntely, an inbred percentage is normally under 5% for these types of horses.

However, I don't believe in line-breeding for popular breeds. I think it's quite silly to produce an in-bred horse when there is a large number of broods or studs to choose from - such as QH's. I think that it's counter productive. If you are breeding for the perfect horse, I think intelligence should be a factor as well. But of course, not all in-bred horses show in-bred characteristics.

Hey Spoiledrottenpenner, does that explain the common prefix? Eg..aqha in New Zealand has a lot stallions with Doc and Poco prefix names?
