Not sure if I'll be following the rules exactly. I'm playing in normal life span, but I'll do my best to have fun!

Martin Long


As well as having the equestrian trait, he is athletic, artistic, brave and loves the outdoors. His LTW is The Jockey. He loves Tri-Tip Steak, Country music and brown.


He bought Jane at the Equestrian Centre.


I love her marking and the white feathers.


I've been playing in a version of Sunset Valley that I have modified to fit all the lots from the various EPs. I will be making some changes on this lot. Everyone arrives and stands around on the training field.


So far they are working on their skills. Martin has reached level 7 of the riding skill and Jane has level 7 of jumping and level 6 of the racing skill. They have won 2 Beginner Jumping Competitions, but have yet to win an Advanced Jumping Competition. They are living in The Solace.


Horsey

Statistics

Jane Long (Dam)

Traits: Genius, Fast, Friendly, Agile
Racing level 8
Jumping level 10

Morgan Long (Sire)

Traits: Agile, Fast
Racing level 9
Jumping level 10

AbaJaMo (male) First born

Traits: Agile, Friendly, Untrained Fast
Racing level 8
Jumping level 7
Beginner Jumping Competition's won 1

BatuJaMo (male) Second born

Traits: Genius, Agile, Untrained

I'll add the competitions won by Jane and Morgan next time I play this save.

When I said in the first post that not sure I'll be following the rules exactly, that is what I was think about. I might use two mares.

I know too much, but I'm glad Sims 3 isn't like smell-o-vision.

I can't stop laughing! Smell-O-Vision! I attended the first (and probably only movie) smell-o-vision 'The Sweet Scent of Victory ( I think that was the name ) at the Michael Todd Theater in Chicago, with my grandma, aunt, and girlfriend back in the late 60's. My girlfriend had the misfortune to be in a seat with one of the smell dispensers. eeek Elizabeth Tayler was in the movie but you only saw the back of her. Some of the smells were Awful! Possibably why it didn't catch on.

There are two new additions to the household. Martin met Marilyn and asked her to join the household.

Marilyn Wallis

Traits: Brave, Loves the Outdoors, Bookworm, Genius, Athletic
Favourites: Country music, Tri-Tip Steak, Red
LTW: World Renowned Surgeon
Zodiac: Aquarius

I'll have to add a picture of Marilyn later. I forgot to take one.

and for Jane, Martin bought Morgan

Morgan Long

Traits: Agile, Fast





Well there was some excitement. Martin and Marilyn were out to dinner. Martin arrived home to a burglar trying to sneak onto the property. Too bad, Martin is brave and went into fight mode and right after he called the police the alarm went off.



He lost but the police arrived and also went into fight mode. Right after the police officer lost Marilyn arrived home and took her turn with the burglar.



She lost.



So Martin had another go.



And won! That'll teach a burglar trying to rob Martin and Marilyn.



Here is a picture of Jane and Morgan getting to know each other.



They got to know each other very well.



Martin and Marilyn went to France to spend some more time together. They both have such busy lives. Looks like Martin should have brought his motorcycle too. Marilyn had to help him up the hill. First she tried pushing.



Then she tried towing.



lol!

Marilyn and Martin are now going steady. Marilyn spent some time making nectar while Martin was exploring. They need more money to move to their new digs.





The Solace is getting too small. The horses keep wanting more jumps. So this will be their new home, loosely based on The Belfast, Sears house plan c.1936.



Does anyone know if you get the baby chimes with horses too? Tried twice and no chimes yet.

Nice up-date MW. I had a good laugh reading about the burglar and the fights that ensued. I hope you do get chimes when the pony is on the way. Wink

It is wonderful that you are trying this.

1. Yes you get chimes when the breeding is successful. Sometimes horses are very stubborn.
2. Having two mares to complete the challenge is an official alternate to the rules.
3. There is also another official alternate for using five mares, if things get tough.

Have fun! I love your pics and story so far. cheers

I forget how many reward points it is, but there is also a 'Young again' potion for pets. I guess that is allowed, right?

All Reward Points are allowed. There is also one for your Sim that will extend the life span of your pets/horses.

I have quite a long update today.

Martin has been busy training the horses. Here he is on Jane.



While Marilyn was at the gym she had to see to a patient.



She showed the patient this little red thing....



and suddenly...



Afterwards she met up with Martin and they went to karaoke. Boy do they have awful singing voices. Razz



They then went over to the lounge and watched the stars together.



Whispering a joke in his ear.



The first foal was born.
Meet AbaJaMo (male) [Aba by Jane and Morgan]
Traits: Agile, Friendly, Untrained





Playing chase with Aba.



Awww, isn't that just too sweet.



Getting in some jumping practice with Morgan.



Wow! This happens with the Pyrotechnic jump when they hit the ground on the other side.



Another patient while Marilyn was at the library. This time it is a co-worker. I love the look on her face.



Even at level 10, Martin lands on his butt.



Marilyn has been upgrading the plumbing.



Just before they both went to bed for the night, Martin popped the question. [I haven't CASd the bed yet, but the wall is the final version.]



She accepted of course.



I've added a few things to the grounds of the build.









He still gets on the horse backwards too.



The second foal was born.



Meet BatuJaMo (male) [Batu by Jane and Morgan]
Traits: Genius, Agile, Untrained





I caught this video of Martin running the jumping course with Jane. I didn't edit, so the odd behaviour is what happens in my game. I will try moving the last jump next time I'm in the save and see if that helps. Thought I would share anyway.



Here is the link in case the video doesn't play for you.

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xq9p9y_jumping-course_videogames

Martin and Marilyn are both level 5 of their careers. Martin has mastered riding. Jane has Racing level 8 and Jumping level 9, a hair away from 10. Morgan has Racing level 8 and Jumping level 9.
