  1. Apparently the healthiest possible kids a person can have is with their 3rd cousin.I'm from a rural village in Ireland,most people there would be at least that much related to me(2 lines though ,farmers and cottiers/working class,no outcrossing between them until around 1990.)
  2. Its at 65%(roughly) in the pedigree Jeemes put up,(and no new blood added since). How many generations is it being worked out over? (Makes a big difference)
  3. Wild herd animals, one sire, lots of dams. Carnivorous animals tend to pair up. Must be some reason for it.
  4. Jerseys? Maybe they were a landrace long before he went near them?
  5. Take a total outcross, the number of possible combinations of chromosomes is almost 550 billion (39 multiplied by itself 39 times).putting a brother to a sister would half that,but at the same time you may have inherited the bad genes/faults from both sides and every time you breed the line/cross into itself ,you run the risk of dodgy recessive genes meeting their counterpart..also true for desirable traits though.
  6. Very ,very unpredictable. Can go very bad or very good.
  7. I read an interview with the greyhound breeder/trainer Nick Savva once, said basically the same thing.(He wouldn't go closer than 4 x4)
  8. 4 group 1 runners from 100 foals is considered above average in that game though.3 x 3 would be considered very close, but linebreeding closer to Galileo and his dam urban sea seems to be working macswiney,masar etc
  9. If a lot of people breed they're dogs that way,then a lot of winners will be bred that way. In Serbia, most winners seem to be a lot more outcrossed. There seems to be a direct correlation between low breeding coefficient (outcrosses) and career earnings in greyhounds. The superstar racer/stud dog of modern times ,Fernando bale doesn't have any dog in common on both sides of his pedigree until the 6th generation back.
  10. Maybe a trial run for a future biological war?
  11. Are these things you would have thought about 3 years ago? (Or things anyone thought about)
  12. A Bassett griffon vendeen or something like that?
  13. A full k.c Bassett or some kind of working type?
