    I'm working on this test right now, & I put; "They only bred the best livestock with each other." I'm not sure if it's right, but that's what I put.

    They determine the traits they wanted in their animals. They then took the animals that exhibited those traits and then bred for them. They, for example, would decide that they like the strength a horse would have. They would then breed it to a horse with the same trait ans so. This trait would then be bred down the family line.
