Howrse foal games from April 2011

UPDATE: Following the changes made by Howrse in July 2012, these foal games will no longer work. See the ALL NEW foal games here.

These foal games have been devised since the major changes by Howrse in April 2011. With the removal of the saltstone, the removal of the two-carrot bonus and the increase in gains from the 'double lesson' the whole way foals are trained has changed. So it's great news that StaciMM has come up with these foal games to allow for these changes. So a big thanks to her, and here is her guide. We've tested it and it works perfectly:


This will work for any size horse/pony and should NOT result in a seriously overweight/unhealthy horse.
Board your foal in a centre with carrots & clean, fertile meadows, and make sure morale is 100% when you put the foal to bed at 6 months old.



Put your horse to bed in the meadow each night. If the temperature is under 10C put your horse to bed in the box.


NOTE: Your horse will now need a companion to be able to do these games.


8 months
Groom/1 Hr Pasture/1 Hr Games/Turnip/Feed 4 pounds/7 Hrs Games/Stroke/Carrot/Water


10 months
Groom/1 Hr Pasture/1 Hr Games/Turnip/Feed 4 Pounds/1 Hr Games/1.5 Hrs Pasture/7 Hrs Games/Stroke/Carrot/Water


12 months
Groom/1 Hr Pasture/1 Hr Games/Turnip/Feed 4 Pounds/8 Hrs Games/Stroke/Carrot/Water


1 year 2 months
Groom/1 Hr Pasture/1 Hr Games/Turnip/9 Hrs Games/Stroke/Carrot/Water/Feed **Feed 2-3 pounds less than it recommends**


1 year 4 months
Groom/30 Minutes Pasture/1 Hr Games/Turnip/Feed 4 pounds/10 Hrs Games/Stroke/Carrot/Water


1 year 6 months
Groom/30 Minutes Pasture/2 Hr Games/Turnip/Feed 14 Pounds/10 Hrs Games/1 Hr Games/Stroke/Carrot/Water


At most ages you are feeding a little less than recommended so as to get ready to overfeed at 18 mos. You MUST feed 14 pounds at 18 months to be able to put your horse to bed with 20% energy. Do not feed more than 4 pounds on each day when it says to feed just 4 pounds. The horse is eating a little in the pasture, and will be at a good/healthy weight when games are done. A pony (or small horse) may need to be underfed slightly at 20 months.So good luck with your foal games. As long as you follow these instructions carefully, you will be rewarded with a perfect 1.2 GP gain on your horse.

thank you so much!!! this helped me get my horse to 1036GP!!! im so excited to start training!

Are there any new training guides out yet?

Anonymous said...

All I can say it didn't work for my foal, it got killed! I have restarted my game as I want to do it a different way!

Lucy said...

I'll try and post some new training guides as soon as possible. I'm still experimenting with what works best at the moment!

Lucy

Lucy said...

I'm sorry to hear that your foal got killed.

This method has worked fine for both me and Patsy on many foals so far.

If you play these games in the winter you do need to be careful and make sure that the EC's pastures have good cleanliness and fertility and that you put your foal to bed in the box each night, not the meadow.

Make sure you keep an eye on your foals health and morale throughout the games. If they drop below 90% you must stop and ensure you make your foal better before continuing.

Does this method work for shetlands aswell? Whenever I do the first part of games on my 2 foals (1 sheltie UNI and 1 PSH UNI) It can't play 7hr games because it takes away -99.5% of the foals energy and my two foals (Even while being perfectly happy, good energy, good EC etc) only have 97% energy at that point so I can't Play for 7hrs... Is it because they are uni's?

pretty_bunny said...

worked perfectly for my Fjord unicorn, thank you!

Anonymous said...

Works perfectly for me. So far I've used it on a Hackney uni and a foundie Fjord uni. Got the full 1.2 gain. I will use this method from now on.
Thank you so much for sharing :D
~Spitfire Ace ^_^

Lucy said...

It should work for all breeds. If you're having trouble on the first day you need to check that the EC you're in has 100% fertile and clean fields.

It may also help to wait until Spring with the smaaller breeds as your foal will get more food from the pasture.

Lucy

Okay Thanks :D I had just realised I was playing games with them while it was winter XD Silly me! Anyway - It's working well now - Thanks!

Works wonders with Akhal-Teke. Although there was a little bit of a conversion to the metric system.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for this gp gain!! It really helped me get that objective done with the 2 foals getting a 1.2 gp. This works a lot better than the older version.

Anonymous said...

at 8 and 10 months I could not train my filly for 7 hours as it took to much energy it was a Quarter horse other than that it is pretty good

Jaysea said...

I can't wait to use this on my foal that my mare, Cinnamon Apple (Cinnie) is waiting on! I'll write back as soon as I've tried these methods! I'm Jaysea on Howrse. I don't accept friend requests but a congrats would be nice! :) I'll congratulate you if you congratulate me.

smokeypony3 said...

this worked amazingly for my arab!!! (now on 1034.65 skills after training :))

Jaysea said...

It worked well on Beauty of Time, I just had to feed her 1 extra pound of feed so she would have enough energy to continue. (8 mos.) But it went perfect after that! Amazing. Would this work for training, only adjusting the amount of feed and length of training? If possible I'd like to help with guides, because I love the challenge, and my horses would probably need it. I can't wait because I'm trying to breed the best Irish Hunters around. So far, I'm doing good! I'm only starting the actual breeding part, so I'll need some help. Some ideas:
~Riding Guide
~Training Guide
~Foaling Guide for Mares
~Elderly Horse Guide (Beaches Available)
I know it'll take a while to make all of these, but if I can I'll try to get around the security system on howrse and create an extra account to experiment. A couple of tips and pointers and I should be able to get some pretty good guides for you! You can test them out and adjust them, but I'll try my best. I've picked up on a couple of things, but any more help would be nice:)
Plz PM me if you would like to get to know e better:D I'm willing to help any Howrse member, but I do not accept friend requests, sadly.

Jaysea said...

I thought someone from here congratulated me! ;D I hope we can be "Pen Pals". Seeing as I don't accept friend requests I have invented "Pen Pals" (sorry if it already exists in the Howrse world!) where I am "friends" with that person but they are not in my Friends List. I only a friends with people I know in real life. I congratulated you back smokeypony3, and I'll PM you ASAP.

These worked amazing for my Unicorn, and he is now one of the highest in the game. Thanks for posting!

Anonymous said...

I could not play with my horse for 7 hours it took 105% energy. Does that have something to do with the EC im in? It has 100% cleanliness 100% space and 99% firtility I dont think you can get pastures better than that. Is there some thing im missing? I followed the directions excatly. It is in the fall but I always put her to bed in the box. It worked great with my other horse. THANKS!

What about winter foal games?

Lucy said...

Winter foal games are the same these days - just put your horse to bed in the box instead of the meadows at night.

You will need to be careful with the EC you are in though - if the meadows aren't 100% fertile, in the winter some of the smaller breeds aren't getting enough energy to do all their games.

So it's safest to wait until Spring/Summer to play with your foal unless you've tried and tested this method with your particular breed.

Lucy

Georgia said...

I did the exact same thing with both my foals and one ended up with 20% engry and the other had 13% so now im stuffed and i wont be able to train that foal!

Anonymous said...

This really works :O !! Tryed it on one of my Uni rejects to test and she now has a perfect 1.2GP gain :) Great Guide, Infact the only one Iv tryed that effectivly works :D Thank You !! Definatly using this guide for the future :)

Breannabear said...

ok, tried this one over and over and a different one over and over, they dont work for my akhal tekes, the energy wont let me play as much games as it says i need to and i follow this routine exactly...help!
Im Breannabear on howrse

Lucy said...

Hi Breannabear,

Have your checked your EC's fields? They must be 100% fertile and 100% clean for this method to work. Also make sure you're doing games in Spring or Summer as sometimes people are finding their horses aren't getting enough energy from the pasture.

Make sure you put your foal to bed the day before you start the games with 100% morale.

If they're still not working then try and get a box with a shower in as this 10% energy on all of your actions.

Lucy

Lucy said...

Actually, I've just had another thought Breannabear.

If you're using it with Akhal Tekes, are you playing on the UK game? If so you need to make sure you convert the food properly as well. 1 pound of forage is about 0.5kg on the UK game.

You should absolutely use a companion on your foal now, otherwise you can't play games with them.

Glad everyone is liking these games!

I am doing this with a trakehener. It said he cosumed 1.1 pounds. is This alright?

racha said...

Works like a charm, even in Winter temperatures (ie putting your foal in a box instead of the meadow)!

You should be fine using this method with a Trakehner as they are one of the larger breeds of horses.

actullay, a problem come.. i did everthing that it said: carrots, 100% clean, And 99% feritly and he almost died and several times he didnt have enough energy! But he got a 1.02 though XD

Huh. At 1 year 4 months, even after following all the instructions, my filly, Pi, woke up with a low amount of energy, and I can't do the 10 hours of games. I have to restart all over again with another filly :(

Anonymous said...

Never mind, I just didn't notice the turnip, silly me! Pi is still destined for greatness :)

Anonymous said...

I am doing this with a Trakehner as well. It has worked so far, and we are currently at 14months. Does anyone have a training schedule for Trakehners or one that would work for a Trakehner mare? I have really slacked off in the blupping of my other horses! Most are less than 10 years old, but I plan to blup them all this summer. I really want to blup my Trakehner in a few days, so please send any advice or guides to linusnlucy!

Lucy said...

pruttypony did you check the temperature was over 10C? If it's colder than that you need to put them to bed in the box or the method won't work.

Lucy

Lucy said...

linusnlucy - Trakehner's top 3 skills are gallop, jump and stamina so just as a quick idea I'd train in dressage, jumping and speed, then do your XC and gallop races, train in stamina, train in gallop and then do your long gallop and steep slope rides.

Lucy

Anonymous said...

Works perfectly every time, thanks a lot! :]

Anonymous said...

With my Trakehner I only got a gain of 1.19 and not 1.20 is that only me or the new breed that messed it up?

  said...

The foal games do work for every breed, so it could be a little mistake on your part. Just be sure to follow the instructions carefully and monitor your horse as you progress

Stick with it and I'm sure you'll be fine next time. Good luck,

Patsy

Anonymous said...

At 1 year 6 months the horse will have to be bedded after 2200 which results in low morale the folowing day. Does morale affect the amount of skill gain by the horse? If so,then what must be done?

schnauzerchica said...

thanks, very helpful (:

Anonymous said...

This works perfectly for my herd of Canadian horses, even in the winter. Thanks so much!^-^

Anonymous said...

Thank you! I needed to do this for the objective. I messed up a little at 1 year 2 months by feeding at the time of 1 year but it still worked. Thank you!

Lucy said...

Low morale does not affect skill gain. It just means that per hour of training your horse uses more energy. Low health however does affect skill gain so you should never train until they have 100% health.

The day after these games the best thing to do is put your horse in the meadow, groom, water and feed until your horse's morale and energy are back to normal.

Lucy

happylilmonster said...

At 18 mo. I ended up bedding him at 24:00. Did I mess up or is this supposed to happen?

Lucy said...

That's correct happylilmonster.

It doesn't matter that they go to bed late as it's their last day of games. Make sure your horses health is 100% before you begin training though.

Lucy

Anonymous said...

well, this didn't work for my arab:(
it says 10 hours , but it had enough energy only for 9..

Anonymous said...

i only got 1.17 gp i think its because my horse didnt have enough energy to do 10 hours on 1year 4 months. i could only do 7. Why is this?

Lucy said...

As we've said before, this method works 100% of the time if you follow all the instructions carefully.

If you find your horse not having enough energy at the end of a day then something has gone wrong. It may be your EC - fields must be 100% clean and fertile. It may be the weather - it needs to be over 10C if you put your horse to bed in the meadow. Or you may have just misread something - note that it changes to 1/2 an hour in the meadow at 1 year 4 months.

I can only do my best to try and help you on here. This method has worked for me and others hundreds of times. Give it a go on another foal and see if you can figure out what happened.

it doesnt work at all i have tried 2 times and it doesnt work

LoneRaindrop said...

It didn't work for me on my quarter horse or Friesian at 8 months, I could only do 6 hours of games, not 7. (it required over 100% energy) Does the cleanliness or fertility of the meadow make a difference? It's working fine on my Lusitano. Or what about the kind of companion? My QH has a sparrow, the Friesian has a giraffe, and the Lusitano has dog. I'll try it on my Paints and Gypsy Vanner when I get a chance

LoneRaindrop said...

Oh wait, I think I just figured it out ;) my QH ad Friesian have about 70% morale, and the Lusitano has nearly 100%!

iEvent said...

Worked great for me (: On one of the days, he didn't have enough energy to do 7 hours, but the next day he had enough energy to do an extra half hour. So besides that they went smooth as silk (: Thank you so much!

LoneRaindrop said...

Umm, quick question: how do you know for sure if your horse got the full genetic bonus? Like, where do you go to look?

I'm on my second try - but having trouble getting morale to 100% by the end of 6 months. Advice?

pixelbgood on Howrse.

Lucy said...

pixelbgood - once you've put them in an EC (with 100% clean and fertile meadows) put them out in the meadow as much as possible. This is great for their morale. You can put them out until they've eaten all the fodder they need.

If you still can't quite make it to 100% ask your friends if they'd be kind enough to give your foal some apples.

Lucy

Yay! I got it! Thanks!

Didn't work for me. I couldn't do that amount of games that you said because my foal didn't have enough energy :(

hmmm somehow this only gave me a 1.18 gain. So close yet so far :(

Anonymous said...

It worked for me perfectly, but I am a little disappointed that it goes until midnight the last day. I have another foal game schedule I used to use that works as well, but was overfeeding my shetties so they got too fat to contine. I like this one, because it doesn't overfeed, but I am a little disappointed in the fact that the next "day" or two months or whatever, and until you get the morale back up, you really can't do anything.

I cant find an ec! Can someone help!?!?

I agree, I am also disappointed that it goes until midnight the last day, too. But it worked really well! Thank you.

This doesn't work on sheties as well, or you need to slightly switch it up. I had to miss the first 9 hours, and I mad up the lost hour later. This worked amazing on my 2nd generation foal. I got her to a full ten gp, instead the inborn's would've been at 359 :) Thank you I will be using this in breeding so I can get a complete 10 jump every generation

Anonymous, the morale wasn't high enough, which means that the playing will take more energy than usual. The morale should ALWAYS be 98%-100% when playing.

It usually works great on my horses, but I have had a few Connemara's that were underweight at 1yr 6mos. So I just gave them 21 lbs instead of the 14, and they were fine.

I followed this exactly with 4 foals and it didn't work with any of them. I would end up with 19% of energy in one instead of 20% and it would ruin the whole thing.

it really didn't work with my foals i tried it with 6 different foals but it just didn't work

first time i tried it didnt work, then i figured out it was cuz i didnt start out with full morale. but it works perfect if you do everything exactly like it says. i finally got over the obj 67. so thanks a million!! :D
by chloe748 on howrse:)

Anonymous said...

When you say feed your foal four pounds, do you mean 0.5kg (because thats as close to 0.4kg as there is), or do you mean 4kg?
And does the foal have to have 100% morale to start with for these to work?
Also, (haha, sorry for all the questions), when it does play with your foal for 7 hours, this will take away over 94% of energy, leaving me with only 6%. Will this increase to over 20% with the carrot, stroke and water etc? Or do I have to put my horse to bed with under 20% energy?

Thanks for putting these out there though, great help!
EP2504 on howrse

Lucy said...

By 4 pounds (and any other feeds stated) we mean 4 pounds - feed is given in pounds on the international version. This equates to 2kg for you - make sure you translate the others correctly or your foal might end up the wrong weight!

The foal has to have 100% morale at the end of the day BEFORE you commence games or they will not work correctly - as stated at the top of the page.

And to your final question - yes that's the point of the stroke, carrot and water afterwards - if you follow the method, it will work!

I couldn't do the last step because my horse was too skinny, and had lost heaps of engey.

I am pleased with the fact that My Second gen foals, are now getting 360.00 gp, before foal games

TheHuntress

Anonymous said...

So I followed this with two foals of mine and it didn't work either time probably because I had to mix the order one time on each foal. I had to water them before I could play with them because they were 1 or 0.2 below what would take for them to play for the selected amount of time. Really starting to absolutely hate this objective!!!

 Patsy said...

It does work - if you follow the instructions EXACTLY. So things such as 100% morale for your horse before you start and 100% fertility/cleanliness for you meadow.

Many players are saying it doesn't work, but many more are saying it works brilliantly. The reason is simple - follow the instructions EXACTLY.

It's worked for us countless times!

@Bib

You go to your horse's GP before and see what is is. Let's say it's GP was 650.00 before games. After games you would go back to it's GP and if it says 651.20, it will have "worked" on your horse.

I can't do it, it says that it is going to take away over 100 energy when i get to the 7 hour games! What companion should i use?

 Patsy said...

It doesn't matter what companion you use. If your foal does not have enough energy to complete the seven hours of games, it means he did not have 100% morale. If you read the instructions carefully at the top it tells you how essential it is that your horse has 100% morale before you begin games.

When I did this I followed directions every step but when I did it I got .3 fewer than needed

emily said...

i am using this on my horse and it says it is too fat don't feed it anything do i still feed it the 4 pounds or do i feed it nothing

Lucy said...

If you're still using this method you need to keep feeding what it tells you otherwise it won't work properly.

Once you've finished these games feed your horse nothing until the warning about him being too fat goes away.

Hi! i'm on the international howrse under hmheather:)

this is just a quick tip i did with my horse to help with the energy and moral at 18 months.

If you put a Philotes' Stroke (p. stroke)on your foal you can stroke twice, alowing you to get 30 extra minuts of game time in at the end of the day. If you keep track of the GP and figure out the gain as of 16 months, before you start anything for the day, you will have more GP gain than without the P. Stroke. That way you can finish with full GP gain at 16 months by 22:00 instead of 24:00, witch will leave your horse with pleanty of energy and moral for the rides the next day :)

example:

My horse , Don't Slow Me, started with 1505.45 GP. At the end of the day at 14 months she had 1506.4 GP. 1506.42 - 1505.45 = .97 GP gain at 14 months. then at 16 months i watch the GP close, folowing the schedule (i din't do the 3o min, meadow, instead i did drink), untill i got my full GP. gain. Witch left me with 1506.65 (1.2 GP Gain). This way your horse will be in perfect sape the next day :)

So hear is the altered schedule for 1.2 GP gain with a Philotes' Stroke.

8 months
Groom/1 Hr Pasture/1 Hr Games/Turnip/Feed 4 pounds/7 Hrs Games/Stroke x2 /Carrot/Water/30 min. games

10 months
Groom/1 Hr Pasture/1 Hr Games/Turnip/Feed 4 Pounds/1 Hr Games/1.5 Hrs Pasture/7 Hrs Games/Stroke x2/Carrot/Water/30. min. games

12 months
Groom/1 Hr Pasture/1 Hr Games/Turnip/Feed 4 Pounds/8 Hrs Games/Stroke x2/Carrot/Water/30 min. games

1 year 2 months
Groom/1 Hr Pasture/1 Hr Games/Turnip/9 Hrs Games/Stroke x2/Carrot/Water/Feed **Feed 2-3 pounds less than it recommends**/30 min. games

1 year 4 months
Groom/30 Minutes Pasture/1 Hr Games/Turnip/Feed 4 pounds/10 Hrs Games/Stroke x 2/Carrot/Water/30 min. games

1 year 6 months
Groom/Water/1 Hr Games/Turnip/Feed 14 Pounds/10 Hr. Games/ 30 Min. Games/Stroke x1/Carrot

Notice that the last day you only stroke once and do 1 hr. less games and no 30. min games at the end.

This should work, as i used it this way on my horse and it worked good.

never mind, i don't think they work (rrgg)

These things never work for me! No matter what I do! I always end up overfeeding the horses or making them loose morale. I just wanted to pass the Objective, that's all!

Anonymous said...

i have done this to 4 foals but it still hasn't completed my objective:/

would this work on the canadian howrse too?

I did this on my filly uni and she's been rewarded with a perfect 1.2 GP gain! This is really good, thanks for sharing.
By the way, I'm creamswirli!

Thanks! This has helped me soooooo much!

does this work on the canadian version? I would like to use this method on my foals, but it always says that i cannot perform the action as my foal has to go to sleep...

Anonymous said...

It didn't work out for me, but i used it on a donkey, so maybe it's the diff? Thanks though!

I've been following this guide for my purebred Spanish horse but when I got to 1 year 2 months on this I read the part about you should be feeding it under what your supposed to but I've been ending up over feeding while following this guide. Should i keep following it?

Narwhals r awesome said...

on the last day It told me I couldn't feed my horse over 10kg of fodder but I just fed 9.5 and her energy was 100%. She was fine and it worked =D

Anonymous said...

THANKYOU SO MUCH! I've been searching for ages for a Foal Games that actually works! I got the objective Thankyou!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Did not work for me. My horse was underfed and therefore I could not finish the 10 hours of training you suggest.

twilightfan432 said...

Bit annoyed with howrse, because of the new energy that the fodder gives. Didn't get my horse to bed with 20% energy on the last day, so now at 1yr8mth she has 80%energy and 82%morale :(

what? what does any of that mean?

I'm saanderson on Howrse and this method is what I have been using and I really am getting results on my Arabs. I am trying to have really good Arabs in the game. Right now I am getting more into quality, not quantity, so I am selling almost all of my Arabs with less than 1500 GP, so if anyone wants some, feel free, they're probably going cheap for their quality and I used this method on them, as well as the other training methods that are on this website. Most of them are not fully trained and BLUPed, but I think one or two are.

These don't work anymore after the new changes
I almost killed my horse after 1 yr 6 months

Lucy said...

No you're right, they don't work after the changes. We're just working on a new method and will post it shortly.

I would like to say that you didn't fator in that at 1 year 6 months the horse grows up and you can no longer play games. Cause it doesn't work.
Upset at your "garentee"

They do state at the top of this post that since July 2012 these games no longer work. You need to read the post properly. Don't blame the writers if you can't read!

This did not help me at all :/

Well they won't - these are out of date, as it states at the top of the post. Follow the link to the new ones.
