Hey guys!

First off : Happy Breeder's Cup!

I will be opening the old player mares sometime within the next several days.    Don't be alarmed -  The "Additional Mare Cost" will start high, but will slowly drop during the rest of the year.    Recall that the original cost was 500 credits in the past to breed with an inactive player's mare.  That cost has a lower bottom than before (roughly 400 credits).  Most mares will get close to that bottom by the end of the year.  The ones that don't are generally owned by a player that has been active more recently (over one year inactive but just barely).  Next year, if those players don't log in again, those mares will bottom out like the others.

Next year, this same sort of thing will happen automatically : on October 1st, mares owned by players than have not been active within the last year will become active at a high cost that will drop throughout the rest of the year.

Finally, as a reminder : you have through 2/28/2013 to breed old male horses under the old pricing structure.  Currently, there is an upcharge of 250 points to use a male horse as a "he-mare."   On 3/1/2013, that pricing structure will change using the male horses' highest level of victory :

Stakes Winner - 200 points
Allowance Winner - 400 points
Winner - 600 points
No Wins - 1000 Points

So it will be cheaper to breed stakes winner (which was the primary intention of the "he-mare" breedings - to keep the sim historical pedigrees active), but more expensive to breed lower quality male horses.
