    Default Is there a term for this relationship?

    I can't decide how to describe this relationship.

    Foal A is by Stallion A, Out of Mare A
    Foal B is by Stallion A, Out of Mare A's daughter.

    Are these 2 foals 3/4 siblings? What is the best way to describe the relationship of the 2 foals to potential buyers?

    Yes, I believe the term is 3/4 sibling.

    I would say 3/4 sibling out of daughter of dam of..........

    we have many 3/4 siblings because the dams are all half sisters (from the same dam) - this is the normal use of the term...

    I have two fillies, same relationship. I call them 3/4 siblings, even though they look nothing alike

    Nasrullah and Royal Charger--classic 3/4 siblings. Both by Nearco, but Nasrullah was out of Mumtaz Begum and Royal Charger was out of a daughter of Mumtaz Begum.

    You and your first cousin's kids are first cousins once removed. Your kids and your cousin's kids are second cousins. Your grandkids and your cousin's kids are second cousins once removed. Your grandkids and your cousin's grandkids are third cousins.

    I drew a nice chart but it won't stay formatted. How do those stick art people manage?

    NOTE: I know nothing about breeding and am only thinking about humans here

    But, Is it healthy to breed like that? insist breeding, doesn't it bring out flaws in the horses? Like the closer they are related the more likely a bad gene with become dominant when it used to be recessive.

    You misunderstand the relationships. There is no affinity here. Actually, this is something that I wanted to try this year. I was gong to breed Rubizza back to Londonderry, as well as her daughter Wintermaske. It seemed like a really interesting way to see what traits came through from the mares. The breeding gods zapped my plans, though. Maybe next year.

    Unless Mare's Daughter is not ALSO by "Stallion A", then there is no "incest". But - it was not specified in the OP's post.. we all just assumed Mare's Daughter was by Stallion B..

    Nothing wrong with breeding both Mare and her daughter (by Stallion B) to Stallion A. As stated above, the resulting foals would be 3/4 siblings.

    I think the only reason it feels a bit weird to some people (including me, when I thought about it...lol) is because if we equate it to humans, it would be like Mom Susan dating Tom, and Susan's daughter Shelly (whose dad is Ted) dating Tom as well... eww... LMAO!!

    That said... there ARE breeders out there who breed fillies/colts back to their own sires/dams... *shudder*

    A recessive gene does not become dominant.
    However, in the homozygous state, it will be expressed.
    This is not necessarily a bad thing.
    Even if it's a "flaw" uncovered, it at least lets the breeder know it's there, and in the long run, this can be a plus for a breeding program...

    Yep. I've got a mare who is Lasting Impression x Key Moment. She is a 3/4 sister to Lotus T, who is Lemgo x Key Moment. Lemgo is also the sire of Lasting Impression.

    No inbreeding there.

    I think it happens more frequently though that a mare and her daughter are bred to the same stallion than the other way around where a stallion and his son are bred to the same mare on different years.
