Deleted Stable and Leased Mares
« on: September 09, 2011, 05:55:26 pm »
I have a quick question about leased mares and what happens when a stable is deleted.

On the lease page I noticed that one of the mares I had leased out this year was once more available for lease (but not really) however she was listed as still being located at her leasee's (?) stable. On her page she is lo longer leased and is back at my barn. I then discovered that the stable that leased (and subsequently bred) her has been deleted.

So my question is what happens to the foal when the leasee is no longer in the game? Does the owner of the mare receive the foal or would it go to Final Furlong?
It doesn't really matter too much, but I was curious since I couldn't find an answer (though I may have missed it). :)

Just a guess?  It reverts to FF ownership.  Otherwise, you're kind of double-dipping (i.e. you got the money for the lease, didn't pay the stud fee and still get the foal).

Of course, when Shanthi gets back, she'll have the right answer for you.

That's what I was figuring too. Thanks for answering. :)

hmmm...but in real life if that were the case you would own the foal since you own the mare, right? There's no all owning farm in RL that swollows up foals from a bankrupt abanondond farm, right? How do banks handle those cases? If money was spent on a stud fee that hasen't yet foaled would they be able to claim the unborn foal as an asset? Though then who would be responsible for broodmare care and veterinary services before/during/and after the foaling if the foal technically belongs to the bank. 
Just playing devils advocate sort of since I find the situation interesting. :)

In RL you'd likely have an auction to sell off whatever horses/property in liquidation. The unborn foal would be one listing in the auction and would get sold to whoever had the highest bid. Unless, perhaps, the lease agreement included a clause that the mare owner has first right of refusal or something if the leasee wants to sell.

In FF, the unborn foal belongs to FF. All horses (including to-be-born ones) owned by a stable that quits get turned over to FF ownership.
