PostSubject: Contest Ideas   Sat Oct 27, 2012 11:33 am

I really want to start some other contests in between keurings to keep this a bit more active. I'm at a loss for ideas though.

Does anyone have any ideas for a contest, raffles, game, anything, we could do for some extra fun?

I've got a few now.


1. "Yearling Gala"
What happens: Yearlings are entered a few months before their first birthday, and on their birthday they are assessed by ERDHHR judges. Kind of like a futurity. However, the best of the best will receive a little prize.
Prizes: Winner (only one a year) will receive +1% automatically to their 6YO and adult keuring scores.

2. "Stallion Showcase"
I don't know if this is just me, but it seems a lot of breeders rarely use studs from other ranches, so I want to see what happens if we try and promote it.
What happens. Every 3-5 years, whenever we choose, we could host this "stallion showcase" in which anyone who wants to participate nominates a few of their studs and they will be show cased here in the forums. This will give them some publicity and maybe a few of us will want straws. Smile

3. No name yet...
This would be just for a little fun, but we could have members who want to participate sign up, and, every handful of game years or so, all other ERDHHR members would vote on a breeding for each person who signed up to do. It could be with their own broodmares and stallions, or their own broodmare and a stallion from another ranch (all horses would be nominated for this event). No real purpose, just something that could be fun to do. Smile


Anyone interested in these?

I defiantly think we need a stallion showcase! I always have trouble finding boys for my broodmares.

We already have a stud list section, but I know I have a very hard time keeping mine updated as right now I am constantly selling off stock to find the better horses. I think the showcase would come in handy.

Any thoughts on the other ideas?...
