Horse SIM Generators - New Foal Color Calculator

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 25, 2010, 1:50 AM
Professional Equine ArtFree Line Art and Stock ArtArticles on Animal GeneticsCheshire Farms the Horse Art Stable

Greetings fellow Horse SIMers, below is a list that I've put together of random generators for horses names and life events. If you know of a good generator not on the list, please post below! Also, if you have a method for grading shows, or creating a more realistic horse life, post those below as well!

Basic Generators
Random.Org
Random number, dice, and coin flip generator. I really like the coin flipper because there are coins from all nationalities.

Horse Name Generators
1,000,000 Horse and Pony Names
Race Horse Name Generator
A variety of name generators from general to specific
Behind the Name

Horse Life Generators
Animal Genetics Coat Color Calculator
This calculator is handy when you have the genetics to both mare and stallion. This website gives you a list of possible foal color outcomes. However there are some genes they do not calculate.

Horse Life Generator
Created by Mendokusee of the HARPG. This appears to be a Mare and Foal predictor which tells whether or not a mare will have a healthy birth, if a foal is healthy, and what quirks they may have.

Horse Color Generator
This was created by me, and some of it doesn't flow properly just because you can't have certain colors together, but it is still a work in progress, and for the most part pretty functional.

Equine Color Genetics - Foal Color Calculator
This is a new coat calculator on the internet, I'm not sure if all the kinks have been worked out of it or not, but it also includes simple illustrations of what the foal color would look like. They have updated genes that the Animal Genetics Coat Color Calculator does not, including new dilutions and additional white patterns.

Joe Mays' Horse Description Generator
This generator gives you a list of color descriptions to choose from.

The Horse Generator
This gives you a color description and behavior quirk in a generated list.

HARPG Generators 101
This generates the breed, name, colors, flaws, discipline, abilities, conformation, career, height, age and death.

I've looked everywhere trying to find a color calculator for a breeding between a white and black tovero mare and a solid palomino stallion. no luck, anyone have any ideas?

Do you know any that you can use to create a genotype for a HARPG horse without parents?

The Foal Color Calculator no longer works. It takes you to the Yahoo search pages.

I had fun with the horse generator. It was fun to see problem horses and horses with some crazy names attatched.
One thing I am confused about is that with how it calculates their career and if it will be successful or not. I thought that was determined on how your horses do in competitions that you enter your horse in among the HARPG community and such. In what comps will the career prediction be valid?
Great list other wise. I am still having fun and finding some neat stuff for my stable. Still trying to figure out the dice stuff though. :D

So can you actually enter your horses in comps that you used these generators to determine the outcome and have it on their performance record?
Reply
:iconjnferrigno:
JNFerrigno Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2011
That would be a question for the comp holder.

Sorry, I meant comps that you make up for your horses. Do they count for anything?

Is there by any change a website that allows you to have a random object, yet lets you add odds? idk how to explain...

but like say you were holding a contest and the contest was for paint horses..and you had better odds of "winning" if your horse wasnt solid... xD
Reply
:iconjnferrigno:
JNFerrigno Featured By Owner May 6, 2010
You'd have to alter the numbers. For instance if you do the random.org site. They have a dice rolling feature. So for instance, you have a solid Paint, and a Overo Paint. Well if the dice rolls 1-4 the Overo wins, 5-6 the Solid wins.

and I don't know if the operations thingy I did in my journal that uses a number generator would be acceptable. [link]

Might want to mention on the color generator that "chocolate palomino" is silver black, because it's confusing people into thinking its like... cream on liver chestnut or something. @_@
Reply
:iconjnferrigno:
JNFerrigno Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2010
Well there are chocolate palominos that are Silvers, and the others that are Sooty. It refers to a shade, and it does say in the notes that chocolate palomino is the Darkest shade of Sooty Palomino. But thank you for those links.

chaoticXinsane Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2010
ah, I had someone who was super confused about it thinking it was just the creme gene the color/pattern she went with for the horse was definitely a silver.

JNFerrigno Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2010
Sooty is a great mimic, and you can have a palomino look almost black in the most extreme cases.

Capalls has been working to code an extensive genetics system. We are ASP based, and would love to work with you on creating something. Contact me if your interested. We already have an individual who has helped us quite a bit, but we would love outside input and help. :)

I'm always up for questions, not good at coding but I can give you all the update current stuff on genetics. Pretty much what is out there I know, and then some stuff not really publicized.
