Our Senior Herdsire:
Sunrise Mountain Augustus III (MOB) "Gus"
Pedigrees are important in a breeding program.  Even if you cannot tell quality by looking at a pedigree (or even if there are missing elements from a pedigree) you can see how well it will match up with that of your jennet.  You would never want to add in the same jack or jennet too many times in a bloodline - called inbreeding or linebreeding - where there are many unknown factors.  You can get the best by doing this, but you also risk the worst.
