Well, to get started...I am a college student and a serious fan of horses. I started off on the old EV, and my original breeds were Gypsy Vanners and Arabians, which I still have. Due to a heavy class schedule, my account was locked and inactive for months at one point, but when I came back, I started to make some rennovations, mostly on my breeding program. I had long bred for conformation, but my herd had terrible stats and in the new program, I discovered colors that may or may not have existed on the old EV. I increased my capacity number of divisions so I could take horses off my backup accounts, and I bought my first Lipizzaners and Tennessee Walking Horses. I turned my account back into deluxe, and began to buy outbloods for my oldest programs and stud to higher-stat stallions which met reasonable conformation standards. After a while, I shut down my breeding program, and I have created a set of rules for locking animals when they reach a certain level of stats. I may occasionally breed upon request, but I am mostly waiting until everyone reaches 15 years or older and the minimum stat rules so I can produce a new generation much more amazing than what I have, but without damaging my work on the conformation. My motto? "Breed for confo, work for stats!"
GOOOOOO TEAM BLUE!!!
Try findin' me now... :D
Art? Check out my website; this
is where my characters live and play, and if you watch my blog, it should pop up with stories every so often.
Foals? I have something up for sale every once and awhile. I do not have strict rules about who buys them, because I do not want to say no to someone who just wants to have a good start or improve their herd, but PLEASE take care of my horses! If it has never been bred, feel free to rename it whatever you want, but I'd really appreciate it if the "DC" stayed in front of the name, otherwise; this is how I identify what I have bred when I am looking for new lines.
Stud services? These are on a judgment-call basis. If your mare is under 300 stats or under 60 confo, forget it. I will not approve just any breeding at this point. Studs will now be allowed up to five breedings to mares outside my herd and up to five breedings within the herd (of which I will keep two or three and sell the rest), so I am not running into my lines too much. If someone reliable specifically requested a breeding to a certain stallion, I will take them off the stud roster much sooner. Stallions which are not already listed will become available at no younger than 5 years and no less than 500 stats, a standard which will increase periodically. Once I have eliminated all horses which will probably be unable to reach 500 stats by the time they are too old to breed, I will be increasing the standard to 10 years and 700 stats minimum.
GO TEAM BLUE!!! Neener, neener, reds and blues, cuz you don't have our awesomeness!
