    I have been currently been playing howrse and I have had two objectives that i have not been able to achieve and I was hoping that someone here could help me complete them.

    These objectives are;
    – Obejective No. 64, Breeding farm: Obtain 716 skill points with a horse you have bred and
    – Objective No. 67, Breeding farm: Have earned at least 60 skill points with a foal’s games

    I have tried to play with my foals, training them, taking them for rides and even competitions and lessons nothing has been working.

    Thankyou, iceagles
