    Maybe I've been sleeping under a rock and this might be common knowledge but I was browsing through the Horse-encyclopedia in the in-game Wiki when I saw this interesting bit...

    skill and breeding.jpg

    I never knew this. Is this even true? And to what extent? I never take skills into consideration when breeding and I'm wondering if it's even worth it?

    Huh this is new to me!
    Im trying to remember but I dont think I had any outstanding outcomes neither positive nor negative.
    But since I'm planning to breed again I might as well make a sheet and record the parents skills and speed!

    This isn't working for me. For example, I had the dumbest T7C stallion ever. 8 skills at lvl 30, no courser one. Breeded him twice with two dumb mares. Got 2x T8C. One ended up with 17/19 skills (Courser, but with 5 coupons), the mare had 15/19 skills without coupons.

    Yeah, I'm not sure about this either but it'll be interesting to record the parents skills for a while to see how they effect breeding.

    Maybe it's a very, very bad explanation on breeding coursers?

    Or maybe, this was what the breeding system was designed for, but was canceled so we have to buy skill change coupons

    I have had the same experience as Nyrante. I think it is a reference to coursers, but like so many of the "tips" we get, is badly written/translated. At one point I wrote down all the horse tips I could find, and some were just laughable.

    I looked through my spreadsheet at all the t8s I have bred. Out of 35 t8s that I have bred and 3 from race boxes.....6 of them became coursers. None of them were natural coursers...they all needed skill change coupons. Out of the 6 that became coursers, 2 of them had the same courser t8 father. (my horses are really inbred >.>) and 1 of them was a race box horse. So, 3 coursers from stupid parents, 2 from courser parents, and 1 from racebox. So far it seems completely random from my small sample size.

    I don't think that refers to the skills.

    I've personally had better luck breeding higher TIER horses from horses that have better skills. It's not a guarantee, but I know I'm more likely to get a T8 from a T6 that has better skills. So the quality they are referring to, I believe, is the Tier.

    ...the dumber they are the more skill change coupons are needed....I think dumb horses are here to stay. And a lot of my recent T8s fit that category lol

    LoL
    I see t8s like this:
    <12 skills useless
    13-14 potatoes
    15 getting better. I can deal with this amount
    16-18 getting excited for courser
    19 perfect amount. Won't awaken (Doofie only one so far with this)
    20 impossible dreaming.
    :D
    So far none have gotten over 15 natural for me.
    Even with coupons only Doofie got that many. WinterWind (E) got 16
