Your Horses will age....
Your horses will age twice a year. The first of Jan. and the first of July. This is at the beggining of each sim year.
How old can they get?
This is no set limit on the age of your horse. However, at twenty and above your horse joins the randome drawing for horse death. [ We currently have very few horses above this cut off so the rules my change as the numbers increase. ] The drawing takes place every other month. The total number of horses above twenty is multiplied by 3 before a randome number is chosen, this means that there is only a 1 in 3 chance that any horse will be eliminated in the draw.
You want to breed, huh....
OK, first of all the breeding rules:
1: While your mare is pregnant she can't compete in shows or races.
2: You can't breed geldings!!!
3: Your mare can have only one pregnancy per sim year.
4: A pregnancy lasts about seven weeks.
OK, now how to breed:
5: If you sale your mare during the pregnancy the foal is sold also.
6: And finally, A mare must be at least 4 before breeding. You can breed any stallion over 3 as well. However You cannot breed any mare over 30, and it is dangerous to breed a mare over 20!
How much money do I start with?
