Heyo EV - happy belated new year! We have some exciting new changes coming for 2021 and wanted to take some time to share some of the updates we will be bringing to you in the upcoming months!

What’s in store!
Here’s a summary of some (but not all!) of the updates we have planned:

*In-hand conformation shows for young horses
*Another way for conformation to play into the game
*More backgrounds! (we know you've been waiting!)
*Updates to options within the Custom Horse Creator
*Some Equine Center tweaks
*Solutions for breeding with unprogressed horses
*Bulk horse manager for those big herds
*Additions to the leveling system and unlocks
*Restyling listening sessions to be fun, community-minded get-togethers
*Continuation of colorful tack updates (show jumping tack is in the works!)

Colorful western tack files are complete and will be coming soon!

We hope to bring some new items to the Valentine's event shop next month too! Happy EVing! :)

Event Shop!
Snowball Fight
The Snowball Fight event shop is now open! Head on over to start spending your Crystallized Snowflakes!

And, as an additional surprise, the entire Snowball Fight event has been extended to last to the end of January 7th at midnight EV time instead of ending December 31st, so you can continue to collect and spend event currency into the new year! Enjoy! :)

Snowball Fight!
The Snowball Fight Has Begun!
Our December Snowball Fight event is back! Starting the 15th and running through the 31st, join your team and lob snowballs at opposing members for a place on top of the leaderboard! Collect snow you will find randomly around the site and add to your pile of available snowballs! Teams - red, green, or blue - are assigned randomly, so don't forget to check who your new allies are!

Throughout the event you will see a message randomly popping up at the top of the page, indicating that you have found a pile of snow. By clicking the button that is displayed, you can create your very own snowball to add to your arsenal. You can see your current status as relates to snowballs collected, thrown, and more in the sidebar, beneath your team banner, whose color indicates your team.

You will also run across Crystallized Snowflakes in this event! This currency can be found at random and can be used at the event shop, which will unlock once we've reached the goal for snowballs thrown. You can find on the Event page either by clicking the Snowball Fight link in the sidebar, under your current stats, or in the dropdown under News. The shop requires snowball throws to open, so get out there and start collecting snow! Some fun winter-themed items await you in the shop!

The event starts now and will run until midnight EV server time on the 31st. Any leftover Crystallized Snowflakes you haven't spent by the end of the event will remain credited to your account, so they will be around for you next year.

Please note, if you're a deluxe member with a full layout page, you can add [snowballbox] to your page to display the box beneath your layout (it may be covered up otherwise) so that members will be able to throw snowballs at you! :)

Happy battling!

Friday Updates!
Happy Friday EV, we have some updates!

Bug Fixes
*Removed message popup when discarding items
*Fixed jumping bridle and saddle not auto-equipping
*Added preventative measures for excessive stat boost when converting a specialty
*Fixed hr tag making text disappear in horse public notes
*Fixed error message popping up when editing horse notes
*Prevented club contest winnings from doubling (fixed as of a previous update)
*Fixed inventory quantities for plushies being wrong, these had been counting plushies in display cabinets too
*Fixed bank not linking to stable to pay board
*Prevented emails adding whitespace during signup to guard against signup errors
*Not a bug: horses appeared entered in the wrong level of show; this happens when the horse’s grade is improved while it is entered in shows - this has no impact on stats, and blocking grade improvements while horses are showing would do more harm than good, so this will stay as-is

*Changed foal stat bonus for parents with matching disciplines to be relative rather than set, to prevent rapidly escalating stat increases for very high-stat horses - this is a very minimal change - pairings of horses below 1k base stats will get a boost, pairings of 1-2k base stats will see no change from before, and pairings above that will have a boost that decreases gradually based on their stats
*Horse names are now displayed in the tack dyeing view, so you can see which tack is on which horse
*The Tack Workshop is now split into three tabs to enhance load times, with separate areas for repairing, upgrading, and dyeing

*Basic tags can now be de-selected from the basic tags page, so it is possible to choose no tag
*Rewards for horses dying of old age have been added, these include some random items as a surprise!

Coming Up Next!
Keep an eye out for the Snowball Fight, which returns on the 15th!
Western tack is up next for the tack color update!

Listening Session Update
Listening Session Update
Heyo everyone! We just wanted to give you a little update regarding listening sessions - we will be putting them on pause for the rest of the year, so there will be no sessions for November or December, as we are taking a break!

We've had a lot of good, productive feedback over the course of the 14 sessions we have now held and need some time to process all of it, and want to have a break for everybody so you can thoroughly enjoy the holidays. We will be reassessing the listening session format and will come back with a new, updated version starting in January!

A big thank you to everybody who has participated in these sessions, your feedback has been a big help! :)

Also just a quick reminder, the Fall Leaves event will end on the 30th just before midnight site time, so be sure to trade in your pristine leaves by then!
