My 7 year old doe (Cotton) had a GORGEOUS baby boy last month (Samson).
My plan was to band all my males and buy or rent a new billy in the Fall but this boy is just too handsome and comes from excellent genes.
What are your thoughts on breeding him to his related females? (see chart attached). His mother, Cotton is Saanen and his father was a Spanish Goat.
What are the dangers of this line-breeding?

He is a handsome fella! I personally don't have experience breeding related goats but I remember a line from a book I read once. "It's line breeding if it works and its inbreeding if it doesn't." Hopefully you have great linebreesing success :)
