made some new comment threads and linked to them at the end of this journal. Should make things a little less hazardous

Over the last ten years, there have been some very unusual happenings surrounding Padro Horses. Horses were reported to be controling things outside of themselves. Scientists and Breed Experts have tried to investigate these happenings, without much results. They have alluded that these strange abilities may be linked to the Padros and Noble Delisas' close relationship, that has developed over the years. Noble Delisas are very mystical and can be powerful creatures and the current theory is that the ancient Delisa breed has shared some of its potential to Padros.


Develop abilities in your Padro to unlock full potential.


stat system:
abilities range from 1-100 (1 being no ability currently present, 100 being full potential is unlocked)
speckling color determines headstart in particular ability. (+10 ap for one color speckling, +5 ap for two and three color speckling)
note: only genotype speckling counts (no extra decorative speckling gained by rank)

shsg a question - what exactly are 'show points' ?
and can ap training images count for pp as well? (I vaguely remember seeing it somewhere that if you did ap training it didnt count for pp? but its so blurry it could be wrong)
Is it possible to do lit-only ap training ?

show points are points that are used in special Padro ability shows held by the group.

And yeah, AP training images can definitely count for PP
