I've a general question about a potential problem.... Is there an issue in breeding alpacas that share common ancestry such as Grandfather or Great Grandfather? I've just discovered that my herdsire shares a grandfather with one of my girls and I'd like to breed him to her but not if it causes problems
Certainly some breeders have done intentional line breeding without problems at all. For me, I would do it, if both had traits I wanted to pass on. I have had & bred animals with the same great grandfathers with no problems. I have not bred animals with the same grand father but probably would if the traits were what I was looking for.
