Okay, I fooled around and forgot to breed a mare this year and so in order to have an even number of weanlings next year I'm having a contest.  (I'm weird I like even numbers gives me a good vibe.  Something like Karma.)  So I'm having a naming contest for ALL NEW MEMBERS.  Sorry guys, I feel the new members will enjoy this and it kinda helps them out a little bit.  Also, foals with ** beside them are potential salers, but it'll cost quite a bit, so that's that.  The game ends on the day the foals are born.  There fore a different date for each individual entry.  You can put one name, multiple names, or what ever.  Just be sure to include the Dam and Sire so I'll know what foal the name goes with.  The winner receives the foal, that they named, that I liked the name of best.  So use your imagination.

Fondly Yours X Moonover Boy  (DUE:  May 10, 2010)

Harada's Treasure X What's Debatable  (DUE:  April 1, 2010)

Highland Gold X What's Debatable  (DUE:  May 2, 2010)

**Lady Gambler X Devil May Care  (DUE:  May 9, 2010)

Make A Promise X Turn n'Burn  (DUE:  May 31, 2010)

Native Princessa X Turn n'Burn  (DUE:  April 9, 2010)

**Tarheel Sugar X Turn n'Burn  (DUE:  May 10, 2010)

So as you can see I wasn't paying a lot of attention and bred to stallions multiple times ;)  Anyway, that's all seven of them.  Only one person will win so GOOD LUCK!!!

EDIT:   Deadline is 12:00A.M. Halloween night.  Sorry I forget about members becoming old after 6 months.

So just to clarify, people submit names for any/all of the 7 foals, you pick the one foal's name you like the best, and the person who submitted that name gets that foal?  And you keep the other 6 foals?

How new do you have to be to do this? Within the last 6 months? 1 year? I like the idea and would try to think up names even if you weren't giving anything away. ;)

Yeah that's preety much the idea.  I hope this is okay???  I thought it would be a nice way to donate to new members.  I feel for them it wasn't quite so hard when I joined to get horses, and now everyone seems to hold on to all of their horses.  So by doing this, a new member will be able to receive a horse by simply participating and using a little creativity.

Let me know if this isn't alright.  I thought it was, but didn't check up on it or anything and if its "Illegal" I apologize.

You must qualify as a new member.  (To check to see if you qualify go to your stable page and select buy horses.  If you are able to see new member sales then you are eligible.  If not please don't try to get one over on me.  I will check to see who is qualified.

It's perfectly legal, Shanthi was just summing up to make it a little clearer for the rest of us what was going on.

Good luck with your contest, naming foals is always fun. :)

Okay so we already have a debate.  Guys be sure and check your names in the database and make sure they're not closely related to another horse!!!!  To do this go to the search horses page and search your names.  I will search all names when contest ends, and make sure we're not giving Shanthi (our wonderful Final Furlong Godess) any more headaches than she already has.


Thanks

sorry about that guys. I Searched the names, in thier entirity before putting them up. Unfortunatly, I should have only searched on the first part, not the entire word.  :oops:

I'm currently double checking all the names I listed.

It still wouldn't pull that up because Argumentive is a dam, not a horse in the game.
