This may be a dumb question, but how many generations does one go back to determine if a horse is straight egyptian, polish, russian, etc. or considered to be straight? I understand how it wouild work is you have a "straight egyptian sire" and bred to a "straight egyptian mare", but what if you have an "egyptian-related mare" and bred to a "straight egyptian stallion"? I suppose the resulting foal would then be "egyptian-related", but if you bred that foal to a "straight egyptian" and so on, wouldn't you end up with a "straight egyptian" eventually? Just questioning, because after my research on my horses, I found out that they were "egyptian related" 5 generations back and not "straight". Otherwise, I found out that 5 generations back, some of their ancestors were Polish, USA, Kellogg, ES, or RS. I am assuming this would not make them "straight egyptian". If I'm wrong, I would love to be corrected , as I'm now searching for "straight egyptian" mares!
Thanks for your replies.
