    Inbreeding to Danehill

    I have the Tavistock 1/2 sister at home for the owners... loverly type and very typical Tavistock... and ebony babe is returning to savabeel.
  2. Will Burgandy be a better sire than Darci Brahma - yes or no. his sireline does it for me and on that fact alone I'm backing burgundy you can define better if you like...

    Hidden Action

    Two words: mendels peas - look it up. Inheritance only partly explains the issues, probability (genetic lottery) is the another part of the equation...or in other words one horse won the lottery and other didn't. In sires therefore, were those good bits not there OR RECESSIVE in that horse?? this is only one answer.....
