Performing Soothing Rain and Restore on a recently-Raised horse (neither cures Raise Illness), then testing Aggro Rits on another NPK's horse, And Owner PFGs their own horse.

[Rez_sick] Ryuto: hello~
[Rez_sick] QiYing: really hoping horses won't park here

[King's Down]
It is night and the full moon is hidden by the clouds.
King's Down continues to the north and continues to the south.
A number of people pass by as they go about their lives (or in some cases, existences).
It is a damn cold backspindlewinter's night with slight breezes and dense cloud cover.
There are two obvious exits: north and south.

Bat'leth the giant fruitbat is flying and Ryuto L'Reaux, Minister BeastEater, a young truffle pig, a backward walking sheep, Haize, the ghost of a blood bay horse and Wise Arturos are standing here.

A street lamp is emitting a grimy light here.

[Rez_sick] Ryuto: wait, are we trying to kill a horse?
[Rez_sick] QiYing: Beasteaster please go ahead and Raise Dead on horse
[Rez_sick] Arturos: No that's just my thing
[Rez_sick] QiYing: then Haize assesses its condition

Minister BeastEater gestures at the open air.
Minister BeastEater looks expectant.
Minister BeastEater glows with a soft light, which slowly transfers onto ghost of a blood bay horse.
A blood bay horse appears in more solid form.

Haize assesses the state of the blood bay horse.

[Rez_sick] QiYing: then Haize assesses "assess horse health" after
Ryuto L'Reaux pets the blood bay horse.
The blood bay horse licks Ryuto L'Reaux benevolently on the back of the neck.
You cheer enthusiastically.
Haize assesses the state of the blood bay horse.

l horse
This blood bay mare has a rich red body with a black muzzle, eartips, mane, legs and tail, like the markings of a fox.  She is of the Llamedos pony breed, which is known for high docility, decent vitality and strength and poor speed and intuition.
She is in good shape.
She is standing.
Cheerful Moth Friend drifts soothingly near your cranium.

[Rez_sick] Ryuto: ooh, shared
[Rez_sick] QiYing: how's it? res illness
[Rez_sick] Haize: Res sickness, nothing else

You hold a white cane in your left hand.
QiYing L'Reaux will try Soothing Rain first!
QiYing L'Reaux thinks Soothing Rain will fail

perform soothing rain from sora
You find it much more difficult to perform soothing rain because you are using the white cane as an external focus for the ritual.  However, this is partially mitigated by the fact that you are near a stylish place and you feel comfortable in your stylish clothes.

You start to recite a devotional prayer to Gapp under your breath.
You call upon Gapp to provide a soothing rain to wash away the cares of the people.
You hold your Taffeny high and cry out for Gapp to infuse the clouds with healing power.
It starts to lightly sprinkle with snow.
QiYing L'Reaux thinks Soothing Rain will fail to restore rez illness.

Gentle snow drifts down from the clouds above you.
Haize assesses the state of the blood bay horse.

[Rez_sick] Haize: Still res sickness, by the way

Gentle snow drifts down from the clouds above you.
Haize assesses the state of the blood bay horse.
As quickly as it arrived, the snow ceases and the clouds fade away.

[Rez_sick] QiYing: how's the horse?
[Rez_sick] Arturos: Res sekness
[Rez_sick] Haize: It needs moar fibre in its diet.  Although probably not if it's going to be dead again soon
[Rez_sick] Ryuto: ooh, needs both oats and hay
[Rez_sick] QiYing: Soothing Rain is over

[Rez_sick] QiYing: now to try Restore...

perform restore on horse from sora
You cannot perform restore because the blood bay horse is not in need of restoration.

[Rez_sick] BeastEater: before you kill it, may i try visions?
[Rez_sick] QiYing: "You cannot perform restore because the blood bay horse is not in need of restoration."
[Rez_sick] QiYing: oooh

perform restore on horse from sora
You cannot perform restore because the blood bay horse is not in need of restoration.

[Rez_sick] QiYing: can't restore the horse!
[Rez_sick] QiYing: Haize, how's the horse?

Haize assesses the state of the blood bay horse.
[Rez_sick] Haize: Res sick
[Rez_sick] QiYing: Only Doughtnut Jim can do that
[Rez_sick] BeastEater: ill try once they are done

[Rez_sick] QiYing: Only Doughtnut Jim can heal Ress illness as far as I know
[Rez_sick] QiYing: witches can't do it, Fraz said
[Rez_sick] Ryuto: really...  huh.

[Rez_sick] Arturos: Any other tests?
[Rez_sick] Arturos: Or can we start the kinds of testing that gets us protestors?
[Rez_sick] QiYing: Ryuto saw his horse healed of rez illness at Doughtnut Jim's

[Rez_sick] QiYing: i have the data I want, please test away :p
Haize assesses the state of the blood bay horse.
[Rez_sick] Haize: Healthy horse
[Rez_sick] Haize: No
[Rez_sick] Ryuto: needs food badly, though
[Rez_sick] Arturos: Go ahead Beasteater :)
[Rez_sick] Haize: Skillfail
[Rez_sick] Haize: Yes
[Rez_sick] Haize: Res sick still

[Rez_sick] BeastEater: unable
[Rez_sick] QiYing: ah
[Rez_sick] Haize: Should we get it some hay?  Else it's going to get other sicknesses too
[Rez_sick] Arturos: Do you need me to do a thing to let you do it or did you just want to see if you can try?
[Rez_sick] QiYing: they wanna keel it :p
[Rez_sick] Arturos: That's ok Haize. I'll demonstrate my cure all
[Rez_sick] Haize: Oh dear :)
[Rez_sick] Ryuto: hoo boy

Illnesses

Overweight

From Mounts page: "Horses fed too often might become sick though. It is unclear if this is above 100% of needs or at a lower percentage or if it's when feeding them things other than hay & oats."

My horse was diagnosed as overweight and had never been fed anything but hay and oats. I had however fed it a LOT of hay and oats before I was able to assess its needs. Emily (talk) 12:24, 5 April 2021 (EDT)

Traits

My mount is a Chalk pony. I had my horse's traits checked and they are as follows:

Vitality .................. 24
Speed ..................... 50 ++
Intuition ................. 16 --
Strength .................. 39
Docility .................. 91

Both my horses traits and the horses traits listed on the main page add up to exactly 220. They also both have a trait with ++ and a trait with --

I would like to therefore put forward the theory that every horse has 220 trait points and that for a trait to go up another trait must go down.

This is done by using your horse in a certain manner and therefore training it in the used trait and detraining it an unused trait.

The only exception is docility which does not change based on horse training and can only be adjusted at the stables via a retro.

If anyone has checked their horses traits and they do not add up to 220 please can you update this research note (to prove me incorrect)!

Toffee (talk) 23:21, 6 April 2021 (GMT)

I had my traits checked again (it had been a few days) and some have gone up, some have gone down but they still add up to 220.

Vitality .................. 23
Speed ..................... 54
Intuition .................. 3
Strength .................. 49
Docility .................. 91

Mounted Combat

Gallop Charge

(Igame) Avenged wisps: Right, who is interested in receiving a gallop charge? 3k hp + preferred (Igame) Orpheo wisps: Sure

  • 12:54:51* Orpheo wisped: about 2837hp
  • 12:57:52* Avenged wisped: 2837hp w/ horse gallop, 1229 neck slash alone, so the gallop was approx 1608hp dmg
  • 12:58:01* Avenged wisped: horse did 1608**
  • 13:02:23* Orpheo wisped: 2793 that time
  • 13:04:38* Avenged wisped: I trust somebody responsible will post that gallop dmg info somewhere useful p
  • 13:04:41* Avenged wisped that he hopes.

Horses regen

So someone killed the horses and Prinscilla.

Might as well document a fresh batch of horses.

What I find very very worrying is that the more costly breeds of horses seem to almost never spawn and that where there's one it's often old player mounts.
