‘Breeding Performance Horses According to the Principles of Open Linebreeding’ by Brian Messner of Thoroughbreeding
A few notes ( thank you to Jeanette Gower)
Rules for breeders to use when designing matings were –
* Know your mares’ characteristics intimately and look after them well
* Select sires on the strength of their dams
* Use inbreeding to eliminate variables and unexpected variations
* Use individuals which excel in conformation, with particular emphasis on balance.
* Know the pedigrees of your horses, and the individual merits and history of those horses in the pedigrees.
