 Oh, oh, oh, I have another

idea.  How about after a horse races a new picture on the horses page shows up.  For example

if they came out of the race clean and happy the horse will be clean and happy, if they were

hurt maybe the leg that they hurt will have a cut or bandage or may be lifting the leg up, or

if it was a muddy day and the horse is really tired he will have mud on him and his head will

be drooped a little bit.  I think that would be really neat and then eventually it would be

cool to have buttons to click to choose to give them a bath (after a muddy race), put a

bandage on their leg (that they hurt in the race), or even litament after a hard day and

wraps overnight.  Then the page would reload with a new picture of the horse happy and clean.

:)  And it would be cool if when the horse is sound again after he hurts himself if the

bandage magically disapears and he's sound. So then we could check on our horses to see if

they are sound before we decide to race them agian.  I thought this might be easier to do in

the mean time before we can talk to vets and trainer about their soundness.  What do ya think

now??? :D  :rolleyes:

 Yeah I think something with a

horses face showing whether it wants to race or is tired or something like that would be

kinda cool.

 Pictures are much harder to

do than words, actually ;).  I'll make doing a vet-check thing a priority along w/ retyping

viewhorse while I'm home over break.  I'm hoping to do a lotta real horse stuff, but we'll

see how the weather cooperates and my mom swears she shouldn't be on the computer since

she's studying for her master gardener class ;).

 I think if you do a betting

thing, the age limit should be lower :)  Since I'm 14.....

 If/when I do betting, there

won't be any age limit, I'll just have to put a disclaimer of some sort up saying that

it's not real money and to not bet more than you can afford to lose.

 Okay sounds good!  Oh, and I

also really like the idea of being able to see other players' stables.  I really like

looking at how other people are doing (I'm kinda nosy ;)).  Love all the ideas you

mentioned.

 All the injury discussions

got me thinking it would be cool if you could have a "vet" visit to give a prognosis on a

horse's injury. It could be a little "GOT-like" in that it wouldn't be perfect, but would

be indicative...."ready to go" or "2-3 more weeks" etc. Of course the vet visit would cost

money, so you would want to use it wisely.

 We've been thinking about a

vet feature, but haven't had time to implement it.

 Yay, I think I've thought

of a fun feature!

How about a feature on the individual horse pages were we can see who

has owned that horse so we can see how many times that horse has been bought or sold. I think

it would be cool cause then there would be a documented history of each horse.  Where he/she

has been how long they were there and how much they were sold for.  What do ya think?? :)

 yeah, i've been wondering

about a feature like that for a while now...i just never got around to suggesting it  ;)

i

think it would be nice.  and maybe how long they've owned the horse. This would be helpful

so we can know whether the owner has had it for more than six months if we're considering

making an offer.

 I've thought about adding

this, but (like everything else) haven't had time yet.

The only slight complication in

this is how to track it, as when stables are deleted, their budgets are deleted as well, so

that would likely mess up some horses' sales histories.  (Not to mention that the horses

automatically revert to FF, FF doesn't officially "buy" them, so that would be another

ocmplication.)

 hmmm....couldn't it be like

how the breeders line is.  There are horses that have been bred by stables that have

disipated and they are still listed as the breeder.  I think that it would be okay that FF

would be listed as an owner if the horse reverts back to FF.  I'm thinking something simple

like just a list of where the horse has been and for how long...and if that seems simple see

how hard it would be impliment the sold amount.  Thinking...:)

 Like a sample would

be....

Born at Rainbow Ranch 4/05/2007
Sold to Cirque Du Soleil Stables 6/29/2009 -

$25,000
Sold to Stillwater 5/19/2010 - $50,000
Sold to Central Coast Lodge

7/04/2010 - $50,000
Sold to FF 10/30/2011 - $0


The $0 dollars could

indicate that the stable had either liquidated or has given the horse to

FF....thoughts?

P.S I used stables names as they came to me...;)

 That's because "Breeder" is

a constant for every horse, and is stored in the database.  "5th Previous Owner" is not a

constant for every horse, and is not store in the database.

Plus, consider the following:

5 stables (A-E) own 1 horse throughout its life.

Stable A breeds the horse, sells it when

it's 6mos old to Stable B.
Stable B owns the horse until he's 2 1/2, then quits the game

and the horse reverts to FF.
Stable C joins and gets the horse as a starting horse, keeps

him until he's 4.
Stable D buys the horse at auction before quitting, and the horse reverts

to FF again.
Stable E gets the horse as a starting horse.

If we go with "FF is the

default owner", then it would appear that the horse was owned by FF from 6mos-2 1/2, and age

4 to when Stable E joins.  Given how FF races its horses (with no rhyme or reason ;)), it

would appear that FF owned him for 95% of his racing career, which would be a

misrepresentation of his racing ability (making him appear better if he had a

not-so-successful racing career, or worse if he had a successful career).
