2yo Auction
« on: February 27, 2011, 12:31:26 am »
I know Shanthi's sort of away/very busy, so this might be a factor, but are FF 2yo's usually consigned to the 2yo auction? Only asking because it seems really sparse compared to previous years.

One of two things can happen: 1) 2yo auction gets postponed or 2) Shanthi consigns a whole bunch of 2yos a couple days before the auction/when she has time.

Or, 3) She's taking pity on us hoarders by not putting a bunch of pretty 2yos up, so only those who really need/want 2yos will participate.  ;)

I wouldn't worry about it.

Usually with the FF Auctions, she puts a bunch of horses in just before the Auction starts.

However, she has been getting help from some of the FF'ers in picking horses for recent Auctions, so this Auction may be different.

It all depends on whether I have time to write a nifty little script to consign for me. If so, I'll do it this week. If not, the auction will probably get postponed a week. ;)

Yay, thanks! Out of curiosity, what's up with the mares who were bred to a created stallion? Was it a stud who was erased?

I don't think so, I think it's just a glitch with those foals and their sire info got erased. If I have a chance I'll see if there's a breeding record to figure out who the sire was.

I checked in the database and all record of the sires of those random foals is gone. :( Very strange.
