    Default Sibling terminology

    I'm wondering if there is a more correct terminology than "half sibling" to denote this relationship, but I don't know what it would be.

    (Tried to draw it, major fail...will try to explain instead...)

    They are half siblings because they share a dam. However, one has X as a sire, and the other has X as a grandsire. Does that more them "more related" (if you will)?

    They are then 3/4 siblings.
