No Carrot Games

Published by

-Updated August 2015-

QUICK TIP: If you don’t have enough energy for the amount of playing, stroke an Xanthos. Make sure that the foal you are playing with is the horse with the lowest energy. Don’t try to play extra games with extra energy – you may run out of time (which will drop the energy for the next day).

With Howrse’s changes, it’s very hard to reach 60 skill points without carrots. These games earn 58 skills. To obtain all 60, you can train over two real-life days. Do an extra 30 min/1 hour one day, stroke an Xanthos, then continue training. You can stop at one point to use another Xanthos stroke the next day to guarantee 60 skills.

8 MONTHS: 8 hours Playing
Grooming / 1h Playing / Feeding (10 lbs) / 7h Playing  / stroking / Drink

 

10 MONTHS: 7 hours Playing
Grooming / 1h Playing /  Feeding (4 pound) / play 6 hours / stroking / Drink

 

1 YEAR: 9.5 hours Playing
Grooming / drink / 2h Playing / Feeding (10 lbs) / 7.5 hours Playing / stroking

 

1 YEAR 2 MONTHS: 10 hours Playing
Grooming / drink / 2 hours / Feeding (10 lbs) / 8h Playing / stroking

 

1 YEAR 4 MONTHS: 12.5 hours Playing
Grooming /  2h Playing / Feeding ( 14 lbs) / 10h Playing /Stroking / play 30 min

    Jessica, I mean no offense to you when I say this, but all of your games have an extra 2 hours at the end that is not necessary since the total skill gain is 60 and the skill gain per hour is 1.2, and 60 max divided by1.2 per hour would equal 50 hours as the required time to get the max skill gain. All of your schedules have a total of 52 hours, which is therefore wasted time and energy. I’ve run the normal games on four or five foals and they’ve all turned out the same, still ending up with the max skill gain yet not doing the last 2 hours of play. Other than that, I love you schedules. They’re the only ones who have turned out consistent results for me (albeit that before last week I hadn’t gotten on in about a year due to other priorities and my ability to follow instructions correctly has improved since then). Haven’t actually tested this with the no carrot and winter games yet, but I’m currently doing no carrot right now and waiting for winter to roll around. The math shows that the results would still be the same, though.

    these foal games didn’t work i couldn’t do the 9 hours or 1 hour play at 10 months and it was an Arabian unicorn

    Hey if you are having issues I got few tips to make it easier :) first, board in an ec with showers!! then give your foal achiles heal as it can go sleep with what ever energy and the energy will go back to top (my foal otherwise go sleep with around 13%) and stack up black orchids in case you need them :) Thanks to these foal games Im training my grand prix horses :)

    This tutorial only worked so-so. I followed as closely as possible. Perhaps you could reevaluate the no-carrot games and redo them. Thanks for your time, Mindaya (1UponaMidnaDreary on Howrse).

    I tried this with my horses on the AU howrse by halving the amount of pounds (a pound is about half a kilo) and it works just fine. Thanks for this, now I can train my foals even without carrots

    Is there any chance on this getting updated to fit with the changes on Howrse. I’m a new player and I don’t have turnips nor can I find an EC with a boarding fee I can afford with carrots.

    Make sure you have the complete reductions of the coupons.
