    Yes, this is true in EVERY breed. I put this in another post, but just to say; in the TB registery (probably others) a horse isn't considered to be related unless they have the same dam.
    For Ex: normally if 2 foals have the same sire we say they are half-brother/sister, but according to certain breeders (especially the old ones) 2 foals are only considered half-siblings if they have the same dam. They're not said to be related if they have the same sire!
    Pretty silly I know.
    It was also believed (not sure if it still is) that a foal didn't inherit any talent from the dam, which is why alot of TB broodmares have never actually raced/ raced bady but they still have good confo. & pedigrees.

    They aren't actually "inbred". Both my Tennssee Walker Mare and my Morgan go back to the Godolphin arabian on both top and I guess waaaaay back they are "inbred". Both of my horses have breeding going back to the top horses of the day that show up on both top and bottom of the pedigree. Unless full siblings are bred ,or a sire to daughter, mare to son, etc., it's not inbreeding. There is also something called line breeding when trying to preserve specific bloodlines and there is a lot of close blood relation breeding in a case like that, but it's not generally done most of the time nowdays. Just because a horse shows up on both top and bottom of a pedigree means very little, especially if separated by a generation or 2.
