Re: general linebreeding question
Linebreeding is done to increase the chance of locking in a working ability, structure, etc. Showlines are typically more linebred than working lines. Showlines are also now seeing more linebreeding depression because of it. (less pups in a litter), so more isn't always better, sometimes it is, sometimes it's not. I personally, don't linebreed every generation. I outcross every other. So grandma oxana, linebred, diesel (her daughter) not linebred, jaxson (her son) linebred.
