Great read! It's interesting to see that linebreeding (almost to the point of inbreeding) doesn't seem to affect a stallion poorly as a producer.

It should only do that for things the linebred/inbred horse is poor in, as inbreeding will accentuate whatever attributes the horse has. Also, soundness may take a hit depending on the level of inbreeding.

That's really good to know! I always shied away from stallions with a pedigree with any degree of similarity to a mare, but it looks like if done right, linebreeding can really result in quality horses. Always learning!
