Currently, the roster doesn't even say whether the animals are male or female.

Good suggestions. I think that this would make the feature to be perfect for everyone, not only those with billions of cattle.

Another useless feature that devs refuse to polish, but instead just add and forget? Time will tell, in its current state it certainly is not enough and there is still a need for custom client livestock manager if one wants all of the missing things.

I agree that it needs changing and although I didn't thoroughly read the OPs suggestion I got the basic idea and think it is good but I doubt J&L will go to the lengths needed to implement it.

It could be much more straight forward to keep the memorize feature, but change the roster so it stores a reference to that animal, if the animal is in the roster add a high light to it when the roster is open. This would allow you to change the name of an animal in either place and the other place is updated as you are actually altering the same data. In terms of if an animal leaves the village, ie you sell it or something, I have no easy fix for that but I assume the current roster doesn't either, you can use it to track animals anywhere in the world? This might be handy for finding horses when I noobs get KO'd in PvE.
