Randomly Generated Retirement/Death Ages

That sounds good to me.  It's very realistic.  But going into that, are mares already more susceptible to dying from having twins or is that something that has to be added in?
That was my random question of the day :)

If a mare is due to foal twins (which is a 1/1000 chance), there is a 50% chance that she will die (and the foals will live), and a 50% chance that all 3 horses will live.

There is also a 1/500 chance that the mare will die with a single foal, and the foal will live.

I realized I forgot to setup new retirement dates for 15yo (1994) mares.  All of them now have randomly generated dates, and all of them are now back to active broodmare status.

Enjoy your "new" broodmares again!  ;)
