Hi all! We've seen an abundance of HI2 horses worthy of mention this past week. They just keep coming... like the dandelions in lawns all across our neighborhood. Unlike dandelions, however, cool HI2 horses are always welcome. Here are a few for your viewing pleasure.
First up is this big red guy. Felicity and Orion fluted him on Ice Cube Isle.
His stats are nothing spectacular, but his looks sure are!
I love his artistic roaning and mismatched white feet. And then there's his persona.
=^) This may be my favorite personality label on the game.
He seemed like a perfect Millennium Fields retiree to me, and I managed to convince my sisters of this too. I had the honor of naming him, selecting his rump art, and retiring him. Here he is:
He's standing amusingly close Granite, our retired rose gray Shagya Arabian. I wonder if he'll still be there next time we log on or if this was a fluke?
Next up is a Clydesdale! Lily mentioned in her last post how we have yet to find a nice one on the game. Well, we can't say that any longer, because Sard and I found one! The flute gave us a mahogany bay - a shocker, I know. ;^)
Unfortunately, her +5/6 stats only added up to +47, and her tyrannical personality did nothing to endear her to us either. So, no Clydesdale for our herd. Yet.
Xia and I stumbled upon cool equine #3 on our way to the far end of Line Isle, where we planned (and later did) use the flute. This one was a beautiful buckskin Curly!
Her +4/6 stats may not look that impressive at first glance, but they add up to +74. Not shabby at all! She's probably one of the highest-stat-ed +4/6ers we've ever been in possession of. All the same, she will not be staying either. We're content with our spotted Curly, Kiwi.
Equine #4 qualifies as cool because he was fluted today, on Mom's birthday! Yay for May 18 and a Friday birthday!
Felicity was playing at the time (riding Wonderland), but she switched to Napoleon, our lucky May 18 flute from a few years back, to use the flute.
Despite the lucky pony and the proximity to a pot of gold (it contained $86k!), the fluted horse himself wasn't very impressive.
Oh well, our herd is definitely not suffering from a lack of Camargues!
Even though Mom isn't part of our birthday flute contest, just for fun, here is the horse on her birthday calendar page:
What a pretty horse! <3 Not a good match for the Camargue at all, though. XD
Our last cool equine is a small but mighty Dartmoor stallion. I spotted him in the auction house a couple of days ago when I was auctioning off some wild horses. He was one of several horses in a row going to the foreign bidder for around $5k. I fully expected him to be your typical low-stat, freshly-caught wild equine. But no!
As the 8 minutes remaining in the auction ticked by, I waited for somebody else to make this realization and bid. I mean, look at those stats! +6/6 and +92! Whoa!
With less than a minute left in the auction, still no bids from any players. You can probably guess what happened from there...
Sorry, Lily, but it would have been such a waste for him to leave the game! Look how cool his avatar is!
We'll see if he gets along okay with Xanadu, our Peruvian Paso mare who also has the "dictator" persona.
If not, he may be going up for sale with the other equines we'll eventually be looking to send on their way. Maybe in honor of Mom's birthday, we'll finally get around to buying a horse store for our ranch...
