| Your thinking is quite sound as I said before Andrew, just like to make a couple of adjustments for the benefit of the line. For example if you want to use Zam I'd prefer something like this CLICK HERE for a few reasons:|
(i) Brett Lee was quite influential with this line. Chloe Allen replicates Brett Lee's pedigree through different individuals at a very high 88% in the 5th gen (14/16 lines covered), CLICK HERE where Bro Fox, New Tears, Chariot Supreme and Dusty Rapid are cross duplicated if you chk the blood quota table below. Bowetzels sire Second Stage and dam Princess Diro are also contained in Chloe Allens pedigree. So Chloe Allen is reintroducing a breeding parallel of Brett Lee back to this damline. She is also doing the same with Bombastic CLICK HERE .
(ii) a 94% front page intensity between Light of Fire and Sobbing Sal CLICK HERE and 88% going the reverse way as explained in (i).
(iii) the reintroduction of an outcrossed sireline (Kelsos Fusileer) to this damline at a perfect time but also with the dam adding a very high intensity as well, as explained in (i), so as the next gen can be bred back into the line.
(iv) the introduction of Zambora Brockie to a well chosen daughter of El Rapido gives up that 100% Sobbing Sal intensity through bros Brett Lee & Trendy Leigh in the x path, however importantly 1 generation further back than you had intended. It's important to push those 100% intensities as further back as possible yet keep them within 5 or 6 gens. For example if you look at the top 15 offspring of Zam on data, there are no examples of Brett Lee as the grandams sire in the immediate damline as wld be if Zam was put over El Rapido, I think from memory. Your way may well work Andrew, but it cld be the difference between a pup breaking 30 at the Meadows or getting close to 29.60 - your way is a little riskier imo. It's much better than Brett Lee being the damsire though, so your thinking has definite merit. All I'm saying is why risk a line ball if it was to click?
(v) the obvious introduction of Fernando to upgrade the pedigree
(vi) there are other sires that give up Bombastic as a breeding parallel as I've explained above, another sire Whiskey Riot I've spotted I think gives up Bombastic through their immediate dam at a very high percentage and also gives up Brett Lee at a very high percentage through their sires dam Chloe Allen as previously explained, so you get both intensities in the one pedigree.....the last time I saw and did that resulted in a National Dist Championship winner. Of course no matter how well its put together and looks, these niches still have to click.
It's a ripper damline with many options, no doubt you'll consider them all. These points are just what I saw pretty much off the top of my head, so I haven't chk'd most of them out thoroughly, not really broken down the pedigree in any great depth x path, other intensities, etc., so these opinions may alter...Ö..when I looked at her damline and saw the possibilities I just thought wow.
Forgot to say I have no affiliations with any dogs mentioned.
