Lamest Game EVAR!
But I love it anyway. :D

I few days ago (ok, something over 30 days ago), saffron_zephyr made a post about Howrse. It's a horse sim - You start with one horse for your "breeding" farm and can breed or buy more (or both... And you can sell, feed, train, compete, etc.). I made an account, just to see what it was like.

At first, I only had one horse, Mika. It was a bit boring with just one horse - there was very little I could do each day - so as soon as Mika was old enough to breed, I bred her. She gave birth to Vikra.

Now I have 5 horses, 3 of which are descendants of Mika, one of which I purchased. I decided to buy Painted Hitachi so I could start breeding some paints, as well as Arabians. She's a fairly poor filly, but that's ok. I'll start with the poor quality filly and train her, improving her. I'll breed her to a decent stallion and get a better second generation... Train that one and get a better third... Etc., etc., and so forth.

I've also sold one filly, Dancer. I accidentally bred her to a stallion who was not a purebred Arabian, and I'd like to stick to purebreds, at least for now. Dancer ended up being 75% Arabian, 12.5% Thoroughbred, and 12.5% Paint.

Though I suspect most of you won't care, if any of you do decide to create an account, or maybe even actually play, please credit equiraptor as your sponsor. I get things if you sign up, and I get nice things in the game if you actually play for a while!

Oh, I should post about the trailer, too. But for now, we are watching Top Gear.

I think I can top this.

A friend of mine is very active on "Pony Island". (Yes, it's really a friend, not me)

"My little pony, my little pony..." (That's all I remember of the song, thankfully)

Except howrse is actually an interesting game by itself, even if a bit simplistic. Though, I've always been a sucker for well-built simple strategy games...

Must... resist... urge... to... buy... passes...
