Apple Wood Trails Ranch


Welcome to Apple Wood Trails Ranch, home of my 50 Foal Challenge! I'm not quite sure how many horses I'm going to go through, though I'm trying to keep it to only two or three human generations. I'm mostly playing for the story and the fun! I did use a cheat in the beginning of the game (freerealestate) so that I could have the house needed for my story. Otherwise, I am following all the rules set forth in the challenge. The official rules can be found here.



Say hello to our founding family, Wynonna and Angel Firth.

Wynonna Firth
YA Female
Sagittarius
Ambitious, Athletic, Equestrian, Loves the Outdoors, Natural Cook
LTW: Jockey
Favorites: Waffles, Country Music, Green

Angel Firth
Adult Mare
Friendly, Genius, Obedient, Fast (learned)
Skills: Riding (5)



Backstory


Wynonna had always lived on Apple Wood Trails Ranch. Her whole life she had been taught to raise horses, though she has spent the last two years away studying animal husbandry. Unfortunately, her parents were killed in a tragic accident, leaving the ranch and all its responsibilities to their only child. Immediately, Wynonna left school and came home to keep up the legacy. She quickly realized that her parents had accrued a massive amount of debt. To keep from losing the farm, Wynonna had to sell all the horses except for one, Angel, who was the first offspring of the mare Wynonna had loved as a child. Now, she is working to restore the former glory of Apple Wood Trails Ranch by building a reputation as a horse breeder. It’s going to be tough, but Wynonna is confident. After all, horses are in her blood!

Say hello to Beauty, Angel's first foal! She looks just like her mother, and has some pretty good traits: Brave, Genius, Untrained, and Fast. (The last was trained into her for a higher sale value.)

Beauty was sold for $1,631.

Your backstory is sad but I love it just the same. Your first foals are so pretty! Have fun with the challenge.

I wanted something sad so that when I succeed I will feel more triumphant! lol

And thank you! I am excited to see how the genetics are going to play out with the other foals!

I love your back story. It's sad, but it makes everything understandable. I also love how you put the photos in, like their a polo graphic photos.

I had attempted to do this challenge, but as soon as I hit thirty, my laptop crashed and to fix it, I had to make sacrifices. When I played, there were patterns as to what gender they will be born as. I'm going to have fun finding the patterns with yours.

I sound creepy. Haha.

I'm also considering adopting another mare. My sim has wanted to adopt a horse since like the first day!

Yeah, I'm not used to these forums, so making it all pretty was kind of hard for me. You can't even center text! AH! lol I'll make it a little easier to read.

#4 - Elvis (colt)


Finally, we have a colt on our ranch! It was beginning to look like a clamfest until our little boy came along! Elvis was sired by Bolt and has the traits Genius, Ornery, and Untrained.

Due to his pretty coloring and my need for a good racehorse, I have decided to keep Elvis. Wynonna feels like it is the right decision to finally reach her dream of Jockey. He already has 4 points in racing and 2 points in jumping.

Family Update!


Wynonna just aged up to adult! She decided that the ranch was going well enough to begin a family, so she jumped on the phone and adopted a beautiful baby girl! Her name is Gale and she is both Artistic and Brave! Wynonna is eager to take on the responsibilities to prepare Gale to take over the ranch some day!
