The 50 Foal Challenge by Rawla-SIMyth

Hello all you horse enthusiasts out there. Here is a challenge for you. It is a little something I've created for horses. Yes, those beloved equine mares and stallions we all adore will now have a challenge of their very own. If this peaks your interest, read on.


OFFICIAL RULES:

1. Create (not adopt) one Sim and One horse. Your horse may be male or female. Your Sim may also be male or female and does not have to be the same gender as your horse.

2. NO money cheats are allowed.

3. Each foal should have a different sire (father). Or dam (mother) if your horse is male.

4. Your Mare's (or Stallion) goal is to have 50 foals.

5. Yes, you may use any and all lifetime reward points your horse may have. You may also train them, race them, jump with them, etc. as you wish.

6. You may choose to sell, give away, etc each foal as it ages up into adulthood. Do not give away/sell a foal. (Alternate: You can sell a foal but only IF it achieves a trained trait such as 'fast'.)

7. Your Sim human (or vampire) can be any age with any traits. But YA is suggested so they can live longer and take care of all the horses/foals that will come to be under their care. Yes, other Sims may join your household.

8. Your human Sim and any other sims may NOT choose a job or profession. (Except for Teenage Sims. The teenagers may have part-time jobs until graduation. Then they will either have to quit and help out on the ranch or move away.) Their job is to care for their growing ranch. They may collect, garden and fish, etc for extra simoleons. Self-employment is optional. (Hint: There is the horseman/horsewoman self-employment option now.)

9. You may choose any world you wish. But it must have the JRA International Equestrian Center in the world somewhere. As this is where you will be going with your Mare to breed her, contest her and sell your grown-up foals. You can also use Unicorns, Wild Horses and adopted ones as Sires to your foals. Used only once of course.

10. A little note on lot size. You may choose any size you wish IF it is at least a 30x30. The bigger the better but watch those beginning funds.

11. For those that use Stallions as their Founding horse, the mare that is impregnated must belong to the household at the time of birth. You can sell her afterwards if you wish. But that means bottle-feeding the foal.

12. Yes, your Sim may have other pets besides horses, such as a dog, cat, etc. Try to limit their numbers though so you still have room to work with your horse population.

13. Yes you may go to Edit Town and create more households for the town (with or without animals/horses) but your are NOT allowed to change the active household at any time.

14. When you create a thread or story, please include a link to these rules in your first post. This is the link: http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/450566.page#6705390
This is not an actual rule but a request.


NOTES:

More details will be added as things get fine-tuned so check back or ask questions if you get stuck.

#11 rule was just added for those that are using stallions.

Lot size minimum adjusted down to 30x30 for those that like to begin a game in a starter house lot.

#12 Was added. Yes your Sim can have non-horse pets if you like.

Added note for breeding on rule #9.

Made a few additions to clarify what you can do with the horse.

#13 Added.

#14 Added.

A few adjustments were made for ease of gameplay. Please see the following rules: 2, 6. Also, an Alternate #2 was added below.




Alternative Challenge Strategy

Alternate #1 - Use two mares (or stallions) instead of one. The second mare can be created in CAS or adopted in-game. Each mare will have the goal to produce 25 foals each instead of 50. All other rules of the challenge will apply.


NEW! Alternate #2 - Use five mares. Each must produce 10 foals. All the mares may use the same stallions for breeding, but each mare may use each stallion only once.

The first mare must be created in CAS along with your founding Sim. The other four mares may be adopted, bought or born into the household. (They do NOT have to be producing foals at the same time. You can use the 'next generation' card for choosing your mares if you wish.)

All other rules of the challenge will apply.

I moved it as I didn't want to loose it.

You can also choose to use 2 mares or 5. See the optional gameplay section at the bottom of the rules. I can't wait for you to begin! A funny story with this challenge sounds awesome. Cool

I read this first and thought, "You're going to need a stallion there somewhere Dutchy. Wink "

Yeah I know, but I don't think you can have both genders.
I have to breed them in the rabbithole. Razz
But I do wonder if I can let one foal who is born and a stallion breed my other mare when he is big.
I mean the challenge is to have the mare breed 25 foals of different stallions right?
I wonder if you also may buy a stallion for breeding and then sell him again.
Hmm, does anybody know these answers or should I asked them on the EA Forum?

As Rawla created this challenge, I'm sure she can answer any of your questions.

The way I read this rule

11. For those that use Stallions as their Founding horse, the mare that is impregnated must belong to the household at the time of birth. You can sell her afterwards if you wish. But that means bottle-feeding the foal.


I would think that you would be allowed to have the stallion in the house hold also. Then sell it later. But Rawla would have to confirm this.

I'll have a café, mocha, vodka, valium latte to go please!

Dini is correct.
Yes. This is allowed. You can also adopt from a neighbor or adopt a wild one and add them as well for the breeding and then sell when they are done. Have fun!

I still don't know if I am going to do it. I play around with pictures of it this afternoon and even made a chapter, but it doesn't feel right.
So I don't know if I can make a story out of it. Of course I can always do the challenge without a story :)

You don't need to write a story. If you want to just post your progress, that would be great too. Whatever you decide, just have fun. :dance:
