I have only just started logging in recently after a few years (or more) of not playing!
I can't remember anything and a lot has changed.
Just bought a Thoroughbred filly... now.. when is the best age to start jump offs? breed? can someone explain items/training/feed etc to me?
I have noticed the forums aren't extremely active these days - if I were to post pictures, do they need to be credited with my barn name like they used to? And graphics for horses.. If you buy a horse, is it etiquette to leave the previous barn owner's graphic on and only put my own on horses I have bred? Or does it not matter?
And hi to anyone who recognises me!

I too feel like a complete noob..lol. I haven't been on PB for more than 6-8 years? A lot of changes. I was hot and heavy on the Nokota server back in the day. I was Kimi Maka Reservation :) Welcome back. Looks like most of your questions were answered..so I wont comment on that.
Fox Tail Forge - So are items not found randomly anymore? You buy them? I seem to have a few carrot juices so I'll see how I go with them, and I am going to stick to just a couple of horses for now in case I don't wholeheartedly get back into it. and yes, I remember your face!!!
I remember you! I used to be Fog of War Equine (my Friesian barn uses that name now).
For jumps, I've worked out, and it seems others have as well, that jumping lightly from about 1-5/6 helps bump their training and experience level for when they are at their "prime" from 7-13. They sometimes surprise you again at 16-18 with random small improvements, but that's it.
Pictures still need to be credited with your barn name.
Art stock now allows Pexels and Pixabay as sources as well as the original stock sourcing sites.
There is now co-training which allows you to link to other barns' training for a percentage of the winnings, to improve the jump heights, and speed up the training.
Feed is under your "horses" button. You can't link to others' feed anymore. Carrot juice is how you get the +20 bonus which helps improve their height as well. I can give you some carrot juice items.
Items. This is where it gets fun. There's a *lot* of items. You can go to the credits link by your Ponybank (not the official name), and see the credit packs. If you click on the packs, it'll take you to a page explaining what the item is, what it does, and how many you get in the packs. You can obtain items through player sales, and buy donating to the upkeep of the game at $10/credit. Each credit allows you to choose one of 5 current credit packs.
You're allowed to put 10 items on each horse. No more than 5 diamond saddles. X-ray items and Super Horse DNA items do not count towards the item counts.
If you're looking to get into thoroughbreds, let me know. I can breed a few for you to have and get you started back in the game.
