2016 Horses Consigned
« on: August 01, 2012, 05:20:40 pm »
Done via random-selection from the database, but everyone should either be stakes quality themselves, or their dam was stakes quality, or they have a half-sibling who's stakes quality.

Still need to do reserves.

Bidding starts September 1.

I haven't even looked yet myself. ;) I have one consigned so technically I could come home with 1 and still "break even" on number of ponies, but I already have 1 on my shopping list. So, really shouldn't look for more. :P But I know I will.

I took out 3 horses who had half-siblings in the auction (I thought my random list pre-screened for that).

There is still one pair of half-siblings consigned (Majestic Light and Dynamic Seven), but I'm leaving them in as 1) one is consigned by a private stable 2) they're 10 years apart in age.

Nooooooo, more ponies!  And I see a couple.  I also see a gelding I bred, and sold in there! Kinda cool one of my babies made the select auction (he's not a baby now though) :)

I've already got some ponies that I really should sell so going to try and keep spending levels low. Always seem attracted to the expensive one's though lol

I really hope my horses start winning everything in site between now and September 1st, but I don't see this happening, haha. I do have one consigned, so hopefully she'll at least hit her reserve! (and keep going!). Some part of me hopes bidding for everything will get so insane I won't bother.

Ok, just looked, and there's a yearling I really, really want. Aaaah.

You might get a run for your money, Lindsay, if she is. ;-)

What bloodlines are really desirable? I know the ones I look for either are hard to find hidden gems, or wll know grand dam lines. (broods)

I'm planning on adding a function in the rewrite so that you can request horses (owned by FF) be put in auctions. It won't guarantee anything, but at least would give a better chance than the database selecting 60 random broodmares from a list of 350+.

Would love to have the son of my retired stud(killing time), I'm sure his price will go out of budget quickly though as studs usually do.
 :(
Would love love love to oWn darling evil!! She's 2002, had 10 foals only 2 are boys (G), and I own 3 of her fillies!  I have good luck with the bloodline. :)
She's not in foal this yr. :(
