Only can agree with Andrea. Also most people tend to breed their mares less than their stallions, so it is easier to catch a good breeding to a stallion than with a mare. (Or at least that is the feeling I get)
I was getting burned out and discouraged from my lack of editing skills. I ended up slipping, and I took a year and a half off. I recently downsized. I had 2 facilities, and both English and Western disciplines. I sold my second facility, and all horses that were not stockies. I felt better, and less overwhelmed.
My suggestion is not to compare your game style with to others. There are mods to change how your graphics look like, and they aren't too big either.
I still don't have a story idea, so I really can't help you. But I have thought of using a story generator to see what ideas I could come up with.
If you think a break is what you need, then take whatever time you need. We'll still be here
Just a quick update, my game is finally up and running and I'm just taking some time to build some new facilities. I had been intending to rebuild anyway, so I figured now is as good a time as any for a fresh start. It looks like I managed to save almost everything except for a handful of horse files, so I may need to track down some previous owners to find their files or at least some pictures I can use to recreate them. I am pretty busy for the rest of the month with holidays, so I won't be able to finish building and start taking pictures again until probably around February, but I do expect to get back into showing when they start up again next month.
Just a quick list of files I know for sure I've lost but can't remember the previous owners of, if anyone could possibly help me out. I may need to add to this list later once I've got everything organized.

@Riz-Artemidoros haha I've had it sitting around for ages. I would suggest/recommend that people edit the original and not make just personal copies to edit, we all share the same poses and if we all do the work it'll be super easy for everyone in the future~!
Okay, so if you want this to be related to the game setup I would say lot D or E, for reference would be about where the train station is. Personally, I would add another horse barn in somewhere. I don't know what your plans are for this, but maybe you could do some cabins like are in the game and have a dude ranch type thing? It's looking great so far!
