Sorry, I do not give freebies -- I don't care what your story is, I've heard them all ... and "once burned, twice shy" --- if someone ever burns you, you will feel the same ....
you know, when you tell someone that you can't buy passes, (to get them to feel sorry for you), and then turn around and buy passes; well, people are going to notice it
One thing you will notice about my game play -- I have very few foals at one time -- nearly all my horses are 1 and 1/2 years old or older -- and if I have foals, they will be foal gamed (or in the process) --
All of my horses I wish to keep have either affixes on them, or are GAs ..
if I sell any horses, they are worthless to me, and they have no affixes (at least none of mine) ... I keep any and all of my horses if I deem them valuable (with or without my affix) -- If I raised them or bred them, I keep them
NO -- I do not want your cross breds -- I can breed my own better ones .. please, do not sell them to me; I don't want them and I will resell or send to Safe Haven ...
I do not keep unwanted horses "just to have lots of horses" (it never made sense to me to have lots of horses you never intend to bother with just for the sake of numbers)
And I do not like having a lot of foals I will never use. No, I will never be a top ranked player or breeder, but I do not care.
I also 100% blup all my horses -- and YES, it does make a difference ( I know a lot of people say it doesn't, but .. ) ; I have done research and have seen it on other folks' horses
When you put males up on public covers -- make sure they are 100% blupped -- no one wants to use a less than 100% male.
I never give out donkey or draft covers -- that includes draft unicorns as well (and no, none are for sale. If you ask. I will ignore and delete the pm)
Promos -- NOT doing them -- I have reached my saturation point with objectives .... as a friend of mine likes to say "if it's free, it's for me" -- bless you Steve, you are right ... stop the madness, get rid of promos .....
I don't mind you reselling horses I've sold to you; -- but if I give a gift; -- I expect you to appreciate the gift -- and not sell it; --- I could have sold it for a profit and not been kind hearted .... be careful how you treat people .... it may backfire on you ....
I also do not sell horses cheap, unless I feel they should be sold cheap;
once you work for your horses as hard as I have and some others have, you will understand why we are like this ...
I am not really a competitive player; semi-competitive, maybe; I am here to relax and have fun
I tried to be competitive with Hanos, Knabstruppers, and TBs --- too much work and it took up all my time -- wasn't for me ----
NO GA coats are for sale -- none--- paid too much for them to sell them
NO drafts, Unis, or donkeys are for sale -- ever -- worked too hard to get them and some were gifts (see above about how I feel about gifts);
some have GAs and they stay with me of course
If you haven't already --- go to EC ----> office---> Boarding;
There is a menu for setting your INITIAL stay time limit --- set it to the lowest you can (which I believe is 3 days now); I also highly recommend setting your max stay at 3 days if you can too --- and bump the skills up to the highest you can (mine are usually the highest I can get them, and I change then as as often as I am allowed) ----
Having very, very high skills for boarding keeps low skilled horses from getting your newly made boxes too -- so remember that .... also reserve all the boxes to you -- that way YOU control who gets in ( go look at the big breeders' Ecs, that's what they do )
Go and look at my EC -- it's not the best -- there are lots better ---- but it will give you some very basic ideas of where to start and what to do to get your EC up and going well ...
Do you know who these people are; and from what shows ?
Yes, I watched a lot of science fiction and "horse" shows when I was a kid Come on -- you have to know at least ONE of these -- he was a very well known actor!
My very first science fiction "crush" -- I was SIX YEARS OLD --- THAT kind of crush -- the cute "guy" (lol) sitting down in the middle
His name was Steve Zodiac -- the show was called Fireball XL 5 -- it came on Saturday mornings --- and he was a PUPPET !!!!!
Ok -- super big Pet Peeve -- get ready ----
To all those of you who give stipulations on horses you sell ---
1) don't resell the horse
2) don't use the horse as a pass horse
3) don't send the horse to safe haven
And etc and so on ......
Ahem --- guys, this is a game -- these are FAKE horses --- they're not real ---
and the person who buys the horse can and should do anything he/she wants to do with it --- if you don't want people to do that -- then DON'T sell the horse --- sheeesh !!!!
If you have issues with this, maybe another game would work better for you .....
NONE of my horses are for sale; so please don't ask, I'll just ignore the pm --- IF I ever sell any, they will be in my "other" tab with the sale icon on them --- their price will be firm; I'm not a newb ... so don't waste either of our time by trying to deal me down --- my horses are not "scrubs "-- I've worked hard for these horses; they may not be all that "uber-leet", but they're mine ...
None of my GA coats are for sale -- I worked hard and spent real money --- now if I gave them all away, I wouldn't have the trophy .... so they stay with me -- always --- work hard like I did, and get some of your own ..... some of them are even rare retired coats, I'm never letting them go either --- please read and respect my feelings
Needless to say, I am a very big American Saddlebred fan -- I'd drop all the other breeds I'm working with if I ever got one in the game .... this is a US server, can we please have another US breed?
Lusitanos would be nice too, but I'd like ASBs first ---- good grief, we have draft horses for Pete's sake .... why haven't we got ASBs?
I'm tired of the drafts --- they aren't good comp horses and really, have you ever seen a draft horse jump ?( from what I was told, it's almost impossible to get Clydesdales to jump in real life)
