Can I please have Lasting Spirit's May 2a slot for Laird's Diamond?

Our turkey day didn't start as planned, as we awoke to the unexpected retirement of NCh. Yes It's Paddy. We had just purchased him this past May and was looking forward to many years of foals. His final crop, due next year, are 30 strong with 7 expected at the farm. He has just two yearlings and no weanlings, so we're hopeful for good things from his final crop.

We do own one broodmare daughter of his, so we look forward to her future babies in the near future! Now we have even bigger reasons to try and get a few old racehorses studified.  ;)

Haha, I had the old-as-dirt-and-could-care-less Warmblood gelding who would periodically decide he was done with this trotting nonsense and come to a dead stop. But overall survived! Alas riding lessons in my area is extremely expensive and I can't make it a regular occurrence.

Comments and Suggestions / Re: Fun Features to Add?
« on: November 16, 2017, 07:39:13 PM »
I feel this would be quite a monster to code and integrate into the game (and a bit too Horseland with all these additional attributes to code for). Difficult enough to figure out a training/rest system that seems to work for everyone without adding at-home workouts, too ;) . I figured a horse at home is inactive and recharging, sort of in "hiatus" and one less thing for us to tackle until they return to the track. Same for boarding, as they also don't record workouts during this time, and just recharge much slower.

On another matter, to do with the Training Schedule page. Would it be possible to change a horses Training Schedule directly from one schedule to another? As an example - I have to workout schedules set up, a lighter one for when they are at the Farm for a rest and the other for normal everyday training. If there is a need to change their schedule from one type to the other, currently we have to delete the schedule they are on and then activate the new one.

Consider my curiosity peaked. I didn't think horses trained at all while at the farm? Workout pages show no activity while they're at home.

But I would also love to be able to switch horses from one training schedule to another as more of a dropdown vs. deleting and selecting a new one. Being able to switch horses en masse (almost like submitting nominations) would be amazing, too.

General/Questions / Re: Famous Stallions 2022?
« on: November 16, 2017, 12:34:28 PM »
I don't think they would count as being closely related/same sire since Cape Cross isn't in the game. I'm pretty sure we just can't have RL stallions with similar in-game lines (Smart Strike, A.P. Indy, Sunday Silence, Mr. Prospector, etc.). Cape Cross isn't in the game so Golden Horn's pedigree would be pure "create" just like Sea the Stars. :)

Are we going to vote in/out famous stallions for 2022?

I'm also okay with waiving this off for the year but it's always fun.  ;D
