    Wait, what? So, instead of fixing the disappearing badges problem, you just group together all the badges? Why don't the horses get to keep their badges anymore?

    Breeding Badges Disappeared!

    I noticed that my horse's breeding badges have all disappeared! In looking at the forum, I see they are being changed from horse specific, to the owner - so all the breeding badges from my horses SHOULD have been in MY inventory, and they are NOT. There is just one there, from the breeding badge added today. I had worked hard to make sure these horses had enough breeding badges before they retired, and now they are all gone. Can those be restored to my inventory please? Thank-you for checking into this for me - I have two horses nearing retirement, and had planned to breed them very shortly. I can't seem to get friends to staff my barn, so don't have room to keep too many horses. And now with only 1 lonely breeding badge, I can't really breed ANY of my horses!

    I think the major issue with this is that most people don't know exactly how many breeding badges each horse had, thus we don't know if we're missing any.

    I am so angry right now! All of these updates and debugging and not ONE mention of the loading issue. It's been almost 2 weeks since I've been stuck on the horseshoe page, I've cleared my cache, updated my browser and flash player, sent in a trouble report, posted many times on this forum and tried loading the game with a computer at the city library, which didn't work either. I am through with this game and ubisoft!!!

    Please please PLEASE can you fix the things reported in the Bugs forum rather than just adding lights and taking badges away from horses? I think the players as a whole would be a LOT happier if you fixed things instead of making the game look like it's geared towards five-year-old girls.

    Hi all!

    To answer your questions, we have reworked the breeding badge interface to try to explain the system better> In reality, you need to use all your horse badges during breeding. If you use only 3 badges out of 6, you'll loose the 3 remaining and your horse will be back to 0 breeding badge for his next action.

    About loading issues, we are aware of it and we can fix it per individual account. Please reach out to Customer Support to get the solution to your issue: http://ubisoft.custhelp.com/app/answ...st/p/2070,2463

    I'm still confused on the Breeding Badge issue. I have 37 in my inventory, and they're not listed anywhere on each individual horse. So basically you're saying I have to use all 37 in my next breeding or they all disappear? That's impossible, and quite unfair for me to lose all that work that went into getting badges when they were assigned and used by each individual horse. And if they somehow are attached to each horse while breeding, how does a retired horse regain badges if they can't train or show? Or is the point to just breed the horse once and then retire it?

    About the loading issues. I have contacted customer support, several times. I still can't load my farm. We are told on this forum to list link our facebook account so someone can check it out. Does customer support try to load the farm from my facebook account? What good does that do when no one ever gets back to us. My daughter, who can access her HH farm with her computer has logged into MY facebook account and cannot access my farm either, so it is not MY computer. I am totally frustrated with this game and the lack of help. I just don't know if the hassle and aggravation is worth it anymore.
