Although this topic has been covered many many times, there are quite a few doubts and requests for additional information. Rather than answer each query individually, I have decided to create this thread:Q: I am a new player and I don't have a stable:
A: You will have to wait for Zynga to do a special re-release of the Stable. There is no other method to obtain it other than that. Stables were selling for 50 Farmcash when they were last available in the market.Q: I have a stable, but I don't know where to start and what strategy to adopt:
A: This depends on your XP level. If you are below the 1000 XP level, your strategy should be to generate 'harvest coins' as fast as possible so that you can breach the 1000 level threshold. If you are already above level 1000, your strategy should be to maximize the stallion bonus (more on this later). Here is a sample setup to get you started:Q: Okay, I am below 1000 XP. Now what?
A: You are going to harness the multiplicative power of the stable. The stable instantly reaches 100% maturity when you move (insert) a 'seed horse' that's at or above 33% growth. The breed of this seed horse and the current maturity level of the stable do not matter. Illustrated below is a horse at 65% being moved into a stable at 0%...
Each time a seed horse is inserted into the stable, which is then subsequently harvested... there are 5 probabilistic outcomes and 1 definite outcome (the coins obtained based on the harvest value of horses inside the stable). Your goal at this stage is to maximize these harvest coins. Hence, the Cremello Stallion which gives 4500 coins and 4500 coconuts is the most prudent choice for beginners. Here are the five probabilistic prizes (Arborists, Farmhands, 100 XP prizes, Foals (not shown), and the Stallion Bonus).Q: How do I get lots of Cremello Stallions?
A: If you are on any other farm except for Hawaiian Paradise, the Cremello Stallion sells for 26 Farmcash. If you are on HP, you have an added option of buying it for 450,000 coconuts. You may have to diversify into Blue Whales (and their babies) for a bit to generate enough coconuts so as to purchase the number of Cremellos you desire (at least 10 to 20).Q: I don't have a Hawaiian Paradise shipping license and/or my Stable is on a different farm?
You can purchase the Stallions for Farmcash! Or you can ask a neighbor who has a Cremello Stallion to put it out on their open farm, and then you can travel to their farm and purchase it for coconuts rather than Farmcash. With this method, the Cremellos go to your Giftbox and can then be placed on any farm of your choice (obviously the one where your stable is located).Q: Okay, I have 10 to 20 Cremellos in my stable. Now what?
A: Buy as many regular horses you can and place them out in the open. You can also use ALL your other horses if necessary. As mentioned earlier the breed doesn't matter. Wait for 24 hours (so that these seed horses reach 33%), and start cycling the Stable to 100% maturity with each horse.
Let's assume you have 50 seed horses out in the open and 20 Cremellos in your stable. This will give you a definite coin harvest of at least 20 * 4500 = 90,000 coins and 90,000 coconuts. Repeat 50 times and you are looking at 4.5 million coins.Q: Blah 4.5 million coins are not enough to even go up a single level?!?!
A: The journey from 0 to level 1,000 is the longest and hardest. It took me 3 months just to get from Level 640 to 1,000. Comparatively, it took me just under two weeks to get from level 1 Million to 2 Million. You also should be generating coins through other methods and processes. Search the forum to investigate numerous other income strategies.Q: I am impatient, I want to speed up this process?
A: Purchasing the Double Coin and Double XP statues can quadruple your efforts. Alternatively, the stable holds a maximum of 40 horses. Having 39 Cremello Stallions, and inserting 1 seed horse at a time, will guarantee you 175,500 coins and coconuts per harvest. You can technically fill your entire farm with the regular brown horses worth 50,000 coins and cycle through the Stable all day long!Q: I am above the 1000 XP Level, what should my strategy be?
A: The essence now lies in getting the Stallion Bonus. Recall that this is one of the five probabilistic outcomes from stable cycling. The Stallion Bonus requires a single Stallion inside the stable (any Stallion will do -- Cremello and Dark being the preferred breeds), and it is directly correlated to your current XP Level.Q: What do you mean by directly correlated?
A: Stallion Bonus = Your XP Level squared (ex: XP Level 1500, gives a Stallion Bonus of 1500*1500 = 2.25 Million coins).Q: So should I still keep all the Cremello Stallions in my Stable?
A: Not at this stage. You want to quickly cycle the seed horses... so as to maximize your chances of winning the Stallion Bonus. Cycling a single horse takes much longer than batch insertion and removal. Remember, 2.25 Million coins are worth much much more than the 175,500 maximum harvest coins you can get from your 39 Cremellos.Q: How do I spend my coins as fast as possible to gain the necessary XP?
A: Use Special Delivery Boxes on your Australian farm to maximize the storage space to 1250 units. Buy Coastal Mansions at 10 Million coins each and put them into your storage until full. Sell and repeat until you run of out coins.Q: Are there any more advanced strategies?
Indeed, but unless you have tens of billions of coins in reserve, they aren't very applicable. Try to first achieve level 25,000+ using the above method and then contact 19Lyds
It is not a big difference but, FWIW, I can move the horses in at 33% vs 34%. I haven't tried anything lower
The "tip" is in Question #5 above. Folks will be delighted when they figure it out
My fear about all the attention we have given it this past couple months is it will result in some change by Zynga to limit this or prevent it. That will result in me quitting completely…but I'm not really sure that would be a bad thing.

So... Am I'm doing this right?
I am at level 1554. I have a stable on my English Countryside farm, with 90 seed stallions, (a mixture of creamello and dark stallions). In the past 45 minutes, I have cycled the stallions through the stable. I collected perhaps 6 arborist, 4 farmhands, and 9 100 xp bonuses and 235 million coins.
I'm good with the 235m, but, disappointed that I didn't get one "STALLION BONUS". Am I being unreasonable?
Don't hold back, tell me what you think! I can handle it!
(OBTW, I'm still trying to figure out the mysterious question 5 clue! I'm still clueless!!!)

Now if I had just had the good sense last week to wait to spend the 3 billion coins on dark stallions until after getting the double xp statue in the sale...

Thread updated as requested -- could the power levelers please let me know of your current levels? It'll be nice to have an insight into where everyone stands. Thanks

Melissa when you hover over the stable how long does it say until it is ready? It should just be a few minutes. Try it again with horses 1 day and 20 hours.

My stable says "21 hours, 7 min" but I thought it was the horses that made the stable "ready", not the other way around? (My brain is beginning to hurt.) And I have horses that are 1 day 20 hours, but nothing happens when I put them in.

are you sure your referring to the Stable (below) and not a Horse Paddock?

yep, it even says "horse stable" when I hover over it
