This week I am going to start the first in a series of blog posts about the different consumables. We will start things off talking about the most important one FOOD.  We have never said an exact number of horses to place around 1 food, but I am going to go out on a limb here and recommend you place no more than 10 horses around 1 food.

      We do a lot of house calls where we see many, many horses eating off of one food container and once the horses are moved and spaced out a little it seems to make a difference.  Feel free to make your own judgment on how many you feel comfortable with eating off of the same food, but if you notice any issues try reducing the number around a food and see if it helps. Your horses will eat once every hour. If food is not present their hunger and thirst will rise until it reaches 100% at which time they will get sick. This can take 3 days. A Healing Kit can be used to heal your horses or with the latest update they can eat themselves out of hunger, which takes approximately 3 days. Breeder Food is for horses you wish to breed once they reach 7 days old.
Pet Food is to be used when you do not not wish to breed your horses. If you decide to breed your horse after feeding it Pet Food, it will take 7 days on Breeder Food for the effects of the Pet Food to wear off.

1. Rez the food/water within your horses set range. (a horse’s default range is 5 meters)
2. Click the food/water to change options and see remaining %. Options include Owner only, Group only, and All.
Owner only: Will only be consumed by the owners horses.
Group only: Will only be consumed by horses in the same group as the food/water is set to.
All: Any horse within range of the food/water will be able to consume it.

Once the food/water has been completely consumed it will disappear.

One of the main topics of the tickets we receive is about horses not eating. If you are having issues with your horse not eating please try the following tricks before filing a ticket.
1. Re-rez fixes 99% of the issues.
2. If the land is set to a group, are the horses and food set to that group?
3. If the land isn’t set to a group, are the horse and food set to the same group as each other?
4. Check to see if the horse is set to the type of food out (more stats)
5. Re-set home position.
6. Sometimes giving them a Horsey Snack will help them start to eat so you may also want to try this. Remember your horses only eat once every 43 minutes so you may not notice a change immediately, be patient it takes 3 days for a horse to reach 100% hunger.
