I have been seeing a lot of posts bashing line/inbreeding... this post is NOT to discuss that one way or the other it IS to tell you that naming anyone of the forums, linking specific players horses, thus naming them, or harassing members through messages because of the way they breed will not be tolerated. Don't breed, don't buy, don't whatever.... make your posts... fine... DO NOT single anyone out OR harass them in anyway.

I do not understand the need people have to tell others how to run their "business". I also do not understand the need to shame people for what you feel is wrong. If they like it what does it matter, is it directly hurting you? no... Don't use their studs, or buy their horses.. Problem solved..
If someone is making a post about selling horses and they linebreed. I will comment and say they linebreed. Im not singling them out ot harassing- their customers deserve to know that -DNA is what they would be getting in buying from that barn. Because people forget to look, or dont know to look.
And if you cant handle the truth , then maybe you should reconsider your breeding techniques.
I agree that linebred horses are not desirable and are easy to make sure you don't, but its just as east to retire them, when you do make that mistake instead of sell for cheap. Then new players buy these horses as they don't have the money for anything of real worth and don't know they're not good horses
However I cross-breed myself, and I find it perfectly fine, if you use a DHS on it and retire the ones you don't and don't sell them, as they have the same fate as the linebreds with new players
I dont see a probpem with crossbreeding.. Except the fact that you cant register them- which helps in their performance. Otherwise they have the same potential as a full breed. Specially is its the product of say the best Thoroughbred stallin and the best arabian mare etc.
I personally only crossbreed to introduce proven bloodlines into my rares to help them succeed. But I always use a dhs .
