    LOL I was just gonna say the same thing...They swapped horses hehe 8o

    Aside from that, GREAT NEWS!!! - Will the amount of training we can do depend on how many horseshoes we have?

    Horseshoes will factor into stuff you'll do on the ranch, yeah :) More information on that with the next patch notes.

    Yes reminds me of when we were teased for MONTHS with the Dog and then weeks after with BUGS being fixed...hope the TEAM has learn from these set backs...wish them all the luck bringing this update in on time and with as few bugs as possible...wonder if it wouldn't pay to have a smaller server test the ranch before it is placed into the whole Big Farm family??? Be safe and get your pitch forks ready to pitch horsey pooo....

    I agree. Rose's attire is completely absurd. Dressage helmet, western boots, bandana, and the real kicker - a DRESS. If she is supposed to be a trainer, please dress her like she knows what she is doing. I wouldn't hire a trainer in that getup.

    Hi Penfold

    I think that Rose is wearing a trendy pair of designer Lederhosen under her skirt, trimmed with Scarlett ribbon and black lace. The leather may match her jaunty boots.

    I did hear a rumour that Rose was formally known as Ross and played in a famous Oompah band. No idea how true it is. I look forward to see her horses performing dressage with that sense of rhythm....

    Stay safe & Happy farming xx

    I like the new info about the horse ranch!
    But, fusing horses, just is not setting right with me!! Guess I'm too much of an old fashioned horse gal! Extra training, advanced training, breeding and lots of Tender Loving Care, would still seem to make more sense to me! I like the old ways and love my horses. The very idea of fusing my horses just makes me sick! Would be like destroying a good friend, or giving up on them. What will happen to my beloved horses personality when they are fused? Guess it must be some new Alien technology.
    I see the comments about Rose's dress and other equipment and I agree. I couldn't ride in that dress either! Must have caught her at a bad time! Certainly does not represent a great trainer. I bet she is upset and embarrassed!!! Whoever approved that photo for publication, must not want her to succeed with her new ranch, new clients, etc.! Sad, because I've heard she is a great trainer too. I hope she gets some good appropriate photos out as we work on the ranch together. There are a LOT of very knowledgeable horse folks out here!
    Well, have to get my farms under control, so I can make some time and try to help her out and see what happens! Back to work!

    Once again, GGS doesn't know a thing about what they are doing :D
    A little research would have been appropriate, but I guess they don't have time for details like this.. They are busy with the incoming statistics from Italy and Brazil :D

    I just find myself LOLing that with Germany's history of excellence in dressage and jumping (and also horse racing) that as pointed out above, not much of that is reflected in either the graphics of the horses or the riders' clothes.

    Yeah, it's a game, but really?? You couldn't take two minutes and go for a little realism? (Not to mention that "lasso" and "ranch" imply more Western style riding, which isn't evident in the teaser, but whatever.)

    Oh well, I guess we'll see.

    I just think barring an all out carnival type atmosphere, they shuld be able to take license and do their own thing, now, i understand that it will not please everyone and be as realistic as we like, but it also has not been started, until then I will give them time to make it as fun to play and as realistic as they can

    Oh, dear, this game is starting to turn into a circus... I did quit one after three years of playing, now it looks like only after ten months I will have to pack up again and go in search of a proper farming game... Any hints, people?

    Hopefully GGS provides instructions with the horsefarm so we will know what is the correct way to play it.

    I would hate to spend money/gold on an unintended horse.

    The farm is going to be like anything else here, the ways to learn are initially by their post, next trial and error, then by forum. Hopefully there are good posts in the forum

    I think that Rose would have looked better in jeans and a shirt, not a dress. But doesn't she look a lot like one of the twins? Sorry but she looks to manly in the face to me. Is the twins her brothers? Is this her Halloween costume?

    So all this time we have been collecting horseshoes to have a trainer or to help a trainer who looks as if shes going to a costume party. Well I hope she has more to offer cause at this point I'm not impressed at all, especially since I haven't seen any mention of us earning money. Competitions........ we are already have missions I don't need any more competitions.

    "Introducing Rose McLundy, our brand new character, who will introduce you to the new horse ranch. Help her to get the old horse paddock back to shape, and retrain her own horse, which has to deal with a mean strain. Rose is in her early twenties, but she knows exactly what she wants. She loves horses, and so she put all her efforts into rebuilding the abandoned horse ranch near the farm. Since she has a lot of knowledge about horses, but needs some help when it comes to actually managing a business, Rose needs your help to make the best out of the old ranch. "

    Does she look like she knows anything about horses? But I'm supposed to help her rebuild the ranch? Whose going to help her look more like a horse trainer? I hope that she is able to help support the ranch as well because we will need money/feed/water/medications and accessories for our horses and from the looks of it she is just for decoration at this point.

    I only hope that the introduction of the horse farm will not be used as a smokescreen to slip the "not able to buy products" change into the game. :S

    What I mean is that with everyone happy and distracted with the horse farm, it would be an ideal time for them to make a fundamental and unpopular change in the game. Being unable to buy products immediately comes to mind. Some of you might wonder why I always think the worst. Well, after the Oct. 8th update that so devastated our fellow Italian and Portugeuse Big Farmers, can you blame me?

    Farmerjohn- good point I was thinking the same thing when I first read the announcement. Thinking that this will pacify us and get us excited and then drop something on us or change something else to cause another uproar.

    I hate teasers. Why they never give us a facts? Really, many players are waiting for horses, but i'm afraid it's going to be a same kind of "money black hole" like the island.... Hope not

    But please, give us a real facts, not just hints.

    I agree Dara, what we really need are straight answers and not cryptic messages. It only creates a fog of confusion for players and sets the stage for rumors.

    Howdy,

    It all sounds wonderful and exciting to me. I just hope we can finally earn back some of the millions and millions of dollars we spent on the island to earn shells, grow seeds, fill the ship and earn horseshoes. Its been a long haul - can't wait to play with the horses.
