Bruce, The thing that i think most people do not understand is an actual "True" linebred animal. Most think because it has ole so so in there a couple times there line bred, not true.
Breed close, set traits and maintain them, then fined a complementary line to outcross to for Hybrid Vigor.
Nothing is exact in breeding but when you keep your linebred line going you can always go back to the "base paint" and tweak from there instead of starting from scratch.
I like his word, being Judicious on your crosses.
There is nothing in the world wrong with breeding tight on bloodlines, in fact its what we need a big dose off, from people who are judicious in there breeding.
