Oh damnit, now I really blew it, real badly!
I am definitely a terrible horse-owner...phewww!
But hey, one is supposed to learn from his mistakes, so hopefully I will never repeat this one...
Here is what I did to that poor (virtual( animal of mine now again:
After it finally become healthy, I did as I announced in my previous post, instead of risking training it due its low condition, I have decided to increase its condition with walking.
So I took it for a walk for 1 hour, and its condition has increased from 22 to 30, but this was not enough for me.
I noticed, that there are still 40 minutes left from its training, so I foolishly thought:
If walking increased only slightly the horses condition, "longieren" (whatever it is) is faster, so it will probably increase it more significantly.
So I tried it out for 10 minutes, and after some counting, I realized it will indeed increase it faster...so I spent the remaining 30 minutes on it too...
Actually I choose, and instructed it to do so, but...BANG, it stumbled, and broke its leg!
I have already got rid of 1 of my school-horses, (the one which was less trained, and harder to handle), so now I am left with a well trained, healthy and fit school-horse, and my own, severely injured stout with a broken leg, whose recovery will last...half a year game time!
Even after it recovers, I wonder what use will I have of a horse whose leg was already broken...
What do you suggest now?
I really suck at this game, right?
But I like it very much, the more often I play it, the more I like it!
It's just that I am too inexperienced in horse-care, as you could read, I had even no idea what "longieren" is, and what it actually does, or may cause...
I presume it indeed increases condition faster, but it's much more risky than walking, so it should be done only with high-enough condition...definitely not under 50%, right?
So, walking is for horses with lower, and longieren for those of higher condition then?
