Ohhh Graham..stop it,mate,could you imagine how much that straw would be worth,arguably the most influential stud dog in the world even now...gee's mate the thought of it,ahhh dear,especially if you're bitch was influenced by Brother Fox !Wow...if only mate.
Back on topic,i always thought that it wasn't the most successful way to breed,but saying that, i'm no expert.

I always thought the unofficial definition of inbreeding was within 3 gens Steven, not sure a 1 x 5 qualifies. cheers.

My understanding is a sire 5 or more generations back in pedigree is reused, thatís Back to the Future breeding. This variation of breeding now growing. Imagine having a Temlee straw.

Instead of throwing Daggers from the side lines why don't the 2 Breeding Guru's above give an example of what they think is inbreeding !!!!!

Iím like you Mark , no breeding guru. But if you donít know Inbreeding is much more intense. It is the continual breeding back to one individual who usually appears on every line as far back as ten generations and can cosist of Father/Daughter , Brother/Sister, Uncle/Niece matings and so on. Offspring from these different matings are also mated back together creating an inbred family. Just to go one step further from someone who knows nothing. A good breeder should only continue to breed from offspring from these matings that show the desirable traits or qualities. I have a family of racing pigeons known as jan Aardens which are an extreme distance pigeon and are only the only family of racing pigeon known to carry or produce a crest or topnotch. I aquired a pair of these pigeons from imported stock in 1996 which did not possess any crest or plumage variations. After continually linebreeding back to the original pair I produced squeakers with crests. I was so excited to read the stories of the great Dolle Kuif a famous Jan Aarden pigeon that won numerous prizes in marathon races and also carried a crest. And now to finally produce pigeons with a crest. This took about six years. Unfortunately any youngsters that carried a crest were found to be weak in the nest. Not good feeders. Not great fliers either and I quickly realised how far I could go. The pigeons from the same matings that didnít carry a crest were consistent fliers and an absolute beauty to look at. These pigeons were later bred with to carry on the inbreeding of this family. You must always outcross to only good stock but must always come back to the original family in the next mating. I Hope that helps. Cheers

You cannot compare Pigeons to Greyhounds because as an ex Pigeon flier i know you can breed a lot closer with Birds than Dogs !!!!! The Legend Mr Keith Wrightson raced for decades without outcrossing his inbred Macleans but eventually introduced Meulemans who added speed but shortened the distance of his famous long distance Macleans.My best results were with Pigeons that were 75% one strain 25% outcross as Racers !!!!
When you cross 2 inbred families together anything is possible good and bad !!!!!
Wrightson the Legend crossed back into his inbred family and dominated long distance races again.

Geez Mark we do have something in common and youíre right you can't compare pigeons to greyhounds and I wasnít just giving examples of inbreeding as you asked. However I think greyhounds are more like pigeons than pigeons like greyhounds because itís not very often a pigeon runs home but you often here trainers say, ďyou should of seen my dog he FLEW home. LOL. Cheers. PS. Do you still have pigeons and Keith was a legend. I used to organise the liberation point up my way for you guys with Norm Baker and Allan Wonson. Small world.

Hi Mark,
You are right. Keith was an absolute legend and a gentleman.

I think you will find that genetics apply to all living things in the same way. The only difference is that with pigeons you have all the "family" members in your own back yard, but with greyhounds they are scattered all over the place and harder to obtain the best in the family to continue strong line or in-breeding. The late Allen Wheeler had a lot of his best at his disposal which is why he continually had champion dogs.

The Macleanís and Harrisonís were pretty much unbeatable on their day especially the hard ones. Even with all the imports I think they would still be a valuable asset to any stock loft. Cheers

Personally I think you need to have the double co-efficient x for inbreeding at least at 25% or more to be really identified as inbreeding. You must remember the sire can only pass on his X chromosomes to his daughters. You often hear Ryan refer to the x path. The easiest way to understand this is to do some simple inbred testmatings. For example Bombastic Shiraz x Miata his daughter. Brett Lee with Bettyís Angel should give you above 25% inbreeding but if you mated Lochinvar Marlow with Bettyís Angel the inbreeding will actually be similar or higher as BL lies in the X path of Lochinvar Marlow even though further back in the pedigree. Itís really quite interesting. Fernando Bale has been a success at stud I think most would agree even though he has had a large number of quality bitches. Itís interesting to note though that 18 of his top 20 offspring are males and do not carry the X factor from Fernando. It will be interesting to see how they go at stud. Itís a little early to say IMO to see how he will shape the breed as not many of his daughters who carry his X chromosomes have had litters. JMO. Cheers

Hi Michael,

To clarify my understanding and using the Bombastic Shiraz x Miata example, am I correct in saying the "X theory" would mean you couldn't line breed Lansley Bale via Miata?

Likewise Hotshot with Betty's Angel?

Thank you in advance.
