Animals

The most important thing to understand on HP is how to care for and train/show your animals, since it is the main focus of the game, after all! You can find all of your animals on your home page!

Before we talk about showing and training and breeding and all of that other fun stuff, I want to cover some of the things you can customize on your animal. By going to your animal's page and scrolling almost to the bottom you can change your animal's name, color, height, picture, brand/tag, and make notes for training or breeding in the notes section!

With a brand or tag (which is to allow you to "mark" your animals so people know who owned/trained them) you have the option to make it permanent, but once you do it will never, ever be able to change!

For pictures, you can keep our default image, or you can make or buy an image from another player. You can also choose an image from our image bank to use :).

And lastly, the notes won't show up on your animal's page for anyone but you, they're just for your reference!

Animals (buying and care)

You can buy an animal from the store on the game. And if you're going to start lines of them, you may want to start with an even number of females and males so that your breeding pairs line up well. Make sure you set your breed specialty as well, since it gives you some good perks for your animals during training (especially upgrades!).

Horses can be showed and bred once they're three until they turn twenty-one, and dogs can show and breed starting at age two, and retire at age 16. All animals from the store, called "store" animals, always come at a trainable age, whereas animals that are bred start at age zero.

Before you can train you must make sure your horse has food - it should come with 7 days of feed - for additional feed you will have to find a place to board, or board it at your own stable/kennel if you're upgraded. To find a place to board, go to your animal's page and scroll all the way down to boarding information. You can pick from the list of active stables/kennels or you can search for one. You can also advertise in chat and on the forums looking for one that will stay active and feed for you.

After feeding make sure your animal goes to see the vet and farrier/groomer! To do this, go to your animal's homepage and on the bar under their picture you will see Vet and Farrier (if a horse) or Groomer (if a dog), click on each one and it will automatically see your animal and deduct the fee from your account! Now you're ready to show!

For more information on any of these sections, please visit the Getting Started Guide for more in-depth information, and click-by-click instructions.

Animals (showing and energy)

Next to the vet and farrier links you will see a button to enter shows, click on this and it will take you to a new page where you can enter the name of a show, the type of show, and the date for it to run. You should fill out this form to your specifications and it will give you shows matching your results. This is the way you would want to train for public and club shows. You just click once to enter them (if you're upgraded, please see the upgrade help section for questions about the enter-all shows option), and then wait for them to run!

For private shows, you must go to the page of the host or search for them via Show Search (under the "Search" menu in the main nav. bar) and request a spot in them for your animals. Once you are accepted, you can then click on the link to them in the message you received telling you that you were accepted, and it will take you back to the request page where you can then enter them!

But let's talk a little now about how energy and points/placing works on HP!

Every horse/dog has 70 energy each week, which fills back up every Sunday. Horses/dogs of your breed specialty have 80 energy each week (or 90 if you buy the 10 extra shows from the store). Each energy point is one show that you can enter. And when you enter a show, the energy is taken away (not when the show runs).

You can enter shows ahead of time, or up to the minute before they run (around midnight HP time). You cannot enter more than 20 shows to run on one day, unless you've bought the extra 10 shows, then you can enter 30. For example, if you're training on Sunday night you can enter 10 shows to run Monday, and 20 shows to run Tuesday, but not 30 shows to run Monday. And if you've bought the 10 extra shows, you CAN enter 30 shows to run Monday so that you can fit them all in (easy way to tell - if you try to enter too many shows for the day, the game will tell you).

The shows on HP are judged randomly, with first place equally 2,000 points, and second place equalling 1,960 points, on down to 50 places. Any horses that don't place only get their entrance points (which you get when you enter - breed specialty gets double the entrance points). Most animals on HP have a goal of 1,000,000 (one million) points by retirement, but you can set your own goals as needed!

You can buy 10 extra energy points on any animal you want of your breed specialty from the store for $10,000,000 HPD. This will allow you to enter 90 shows per week, instead of 80 if you're upgraded, or 80 instead of 70 f you're not.

Animals (training tickets)

The other training option is using training tickets. Only upgraded players can sell training tickets, but anyone can use them for their animals.

To request training tickets, go the the player's page who is selling them (you can use player search to find people with sets available, but many people "reserve" other people's training tickets, so you may be better off in chat or forums advertising to buy them and looking for people who are advertising to sell them) and scroll down the the middle of their page where their points and money are listed. Look for the spot where it says they have tickets available and click "Request". On this page you will be able to request as many or as few tickets as you would like - just select the animal you want to use them on from the drop down menu and click request (which will request one ticket) or request all (which will request all 50 tickets) and then wait for the player to accept them. You may want to message them to tell them you've requested their tickets.

Remember, the price listed is the price PER TICKET, not for the whole set.

Animals (breeding)

Once there are some points on your animal, you may want to breed it!

You can breed any male or female between the ages of 3-20 for horses and 2-15 for dogs. To breed, you should pick out the two animals you want to breed (and remember that a foal/pup is born with a number of points calculated from what it's parents have).

Go to the male's page and scroll down to breeding requests - then from the drop down list pick out the female who you would like him to breed with. Then once her name is on the pending list, click "Accept!" and you should have a foal/puppy :). This also works if you want to breed with someone else's stallion, except that they must then click accept (and possibly you will have to pay for the breeding). The account with the mare on it is the one that gets the foal/pup.

When breeding, also remember that the female's points weigh slightly more than the male's points do in a breeding, but they are both fairly equal. Before you breed your animals again, there is a waiting period. For upgrades without breed specialty and for basic players you must wait 5 days for male animals, 14 for female; for upgrades with their breed specialty it is 3 days for males and 10 days for females.

Animals (buying and selling)

You can also buy and sell animals on HP!

To sell an animal:
1. Go to the animal's page and scroll down to your Update Horse/Dog Information box.
2. Then look for where it says Sale and there are sale options. In the box where it asks "Available for Sale?" you are given three options. No means that your horse is not for sale. Yes - Private means that people MUST bid on your animal, and Yes - Public means that you can set a price and anyone can pay the price and automatically have your horse, they will also be able to bid if they think the price you've set is too high.
3. If someone bids on your horse, go to the Sales Information section of your animal's page and if there are any bids, you will see a list with the option to accept or reject - and once you accept a bid you will get the money and the person will have the horse/dog.

To buy a non-store animal:
1. Go to the animal's page (you can use Horse or Dog Search to look for animals that are for sale fitting your criteria) and scroll to sales information.
2. Here you can bid on an animal (be sure to bid reasonably!), and if the owner accepts your bid, it's yours! You may want to message the owner telling them that you've bid and that you're really interested in their animal. 3. Or use the buy now option if it's available.

Remember, if an animal isn't for sale, the owner PROBABLY does not want to sell it. So unless you've made other arrangements or seen them saying that they're thinking of selling it, you should stick to animals that are already for sale!

Animals (retiring and deletion)

Animals retire at a certain age, meaning they can no longer be shown or bred. For horses it is 21 and for dogs it is 16.
At this point, you will get an option at the bottom of the page, next to boarding information to retire the animal. If you do this, the animal will no longer be on your account, it will "go away". However, this will not break your lines if you have them, a text page will remain in your animal's offspring's lineage and will be non-interactive (meaning, it will show the animal's name, points, and picture, but you will no longer be able to move it, sell it, or update it).

Before an animal reaches retirement age, you will be able to delete it if you no longer want it. This will also make it "go away", but will still not break lines.

To do this, go to the same spot where the retirement-age animals have a retirement box and click "delete". Then the animal will remain on your account for 7 days before it can be fully deleted. If you change your mind during the 7 day waiting period, then you can un-mark it for deletion from the animal's page.

Remember, deleting or retiring an animal is permanent and once it is done, it cannot be reversed.

Animals (registry)

You can also register your animals with clubs. Every club that your animal is registered with will show up on the animal's page! You will also probably be eligible to enter the club mascot contests which hand out some pretty cool prizes! And registering with any club gives your animal 1,000 points!

Animals (other helpful info)

There are a few more things you should know about your animals, before you move onto the next section:
  • If you buy an animal from the store it will age on Sunday, regardless of the day you bought it because all store animals are born on Sundays - however, if you breed an animal, the foal/pup will age on the day of the week that it was born.
  • Animals age one game year each real life week.
  • Animals also come in three genders - Male/Stallion, Gelding/Male (fixed), and Mare/Female. Mares/Females and Stallions/Males can be bred. Geldings/Males (fixed) cannot be bred. You can "geld" or "fix" your animals if you so wish to by going to their page (males/stallions only) and looking for the place where it lists their gender, there will be a link there. But once this happens, it is NOT reversible so BE CAREFUL! You can buy Geldings from the store, but Males (fixed) are the gelding version of a dog and must be "created" by the player.




  • Shows

    There are several types of shows on HP, so this guide is going to explain each one to you :). For help on entering the shows, please see the Animal section above!

    Remember, all animals lose energy and gain entrance points at the time of entering, not the time that the show runs. And shows are judged randomly, if your animal doesn't place (because the show has more entrants than places) it will not receive any additional points. Also note that many players call showing "training", which may be confused with using training tickets (which are just called "using training tickets" by most players).

    Public Shows - These are shows that anyone can make on their account, and anyone can enter them. To make these shows, go to your home page. Underneath your animals there is a tab called “shows” and a link there that says “create a show.” Click on this, and fill out the information! The maximum amount you can charge for show entry is $3,000 HPD. That means that every animal that enters your show has to pay you that much money. Each account can make one public horse show and one public dog show each week. First place in a public show is awarded 2,000 points. An upgraded player with their breed specialty gets 3,000 points for first place. Points awarded progress down from there, with 50 places being awarded points.

    Club Shows - Each of HP’s official clubs can make one show each week, horse clubs make horse shows, dog clubs make dog shows. If your animal is registered with the club, you can enter the show. It is up to the current club president to create the show, and choose the requirements for the registry. The maximum amount they can charge for show entry is $2,000. That means that every animal that enters the show has to pay that much money. Club shows award double the points that regular public shows do.

    Private Shows - Upgraded players can make one private horse show and one private dog show each week. Private shows allow YOU to choose which animals can enter them. This means that your animals will have less competition then they would in a public show, so they are more likely to place higher and gain more points! To enter private shows, you must go to the creators home page or search for the show with the show search (found in the main navigation) and click "Request A Spot" then choose the animal you wish to enter. If you are an upgrade, you will need to accept people into your private shows in order for them to enter the classes. Go to the show's page (found under your show tab), and click "Request A Spot" where it will show you a list of animals waiting to be entered. It is up to you whether to accept or deny the entries. You may enter your own animals into your own shows.




    Money

    You'll need game money for all sorts of things on HP, like buying graphics and training your animals! We have two types of currency on HP, HPD which is regular game money, and Horse Bucks which is a special currency you can buy with USD and use in the cash shop for extra special items. This guide is designed to help you understand pricing and how to make money on the game!

    As you may have noticed, on HP we have a slightly inflated economy when compared to some games. We are trying our best to bring the inflation down, but it's a slow process. This can make it hard for those who are just starting out, so we've created this guide to help you figure out how to catch up and survive on HP! And also have a little fun!

    There are several basic things you should take advantage of in order to make money.
    1. Collect your weekly sum from the bank each week. Basic players get $75,000 HPD and upgraded players get $400,000 HPD. The bank resets every Sunday, so make sure you collect your money each week because you won't be able to collect back-salary.
    2. Make your public shows! Each player, basic and upgrade, has the ability to make one public horse show and one public dog show each week! And when you set the entry fee, other players must pay it to enter, and then you get that money!
    3. Each player is allowed to have 5 basic accounts (you can have unlimited upgrades). So many people have all five accounts and make their shows and collect their bank sum from them! It is 5 times the income, plus making your shows each week helps everyone to gain points because the shows won't be flooded.
    4. Refer other players to the game! You can trade in your referral points for game money or upgrades (which allow you to make more money) and it helps HP grow and gain more active players! For more on how to use the referral system, please see the "Referrals" section of the help page!

    Once you're a little more set up in the game, you should continue making your shows and collecting your bank sums, but there are other way that players make money on the game that you should look into!
    1. Enter contests! The HP staff runs tons of official contests, clubs run them every month, and so do individual players. Not only can you make some serious money, you can always often win other cool prizes and make some friends (and help contribute to an active, fun website)! We also run chat parties periodically where we play games and hand out prizes, some of which are HPD :).
    2. Several players offer "services" to other players. These include making graphics and layouts for them which can be made custom or sold as premades in auctions, training for other players (entering their animals into shows for them), train-to-sell animals, and some other odds and ends! The possibilities are really endless here, whatever you can come up with you can offer :).
    3. Check the Earn HPD page (under your "buy" menu). Sometimes the HP Staff will post things that need to be done that they will pay players in HPD to do for them. This can be a great way to earn money.
    4. You can also sell upgrades to other players in the upgrades auction. This does cost you real money, but buying upgrades helps the site stay open and get new updates! And it can help you make a ton of HPD! 5. You can also sell your animals or breedings to your animals. A high pointed animal or it's offspring can be worth a lot of money to another interested breeder!

    As an upgraded player there are even more ways for you to make money. A lot of these are outlined on the Upgrade Help page, but I've summarized them here as well!
    1. More bank money each week.
    2. You can sell your training tickets each month!
    3. You can sell your private shows, or spots in them to other players!
    4. You can also sell your votes to other players who are running in clubs.
    5. By being the president of a club you get a 10% bank raise for the month as well as getting to run the club for a month :).
    6 You can also offer public boarding for horses and dogs in your stable and kennel. This is a good way to make a little extra HPD and help out other payer who might not have an upgrade yet :).




    Graphic & Layout Auctions

    One of our most unique features is our graphic and layout auction format! It allows players to auction off their pre-made images and layouts, or a custom spot to other players in a safe and mediated way (that way everyone is guaranteed not to get scammed)!

    You can find the auction page by looking for the "Graphics" link, under the "Shop" menu. Once you're there there will be all kinds of options.

    It automatically shows you all auctions, but you can sort by graphics only, layouts only, or all by the links at the top! To look at or buy something, find it in the list and then click "BID!" (don't worry it won't automatically place a bid for you). This will allow you to see the information about it and then place a bid if you want to.

    Make sure to place a reasonable bid and look at the information provided by the seller to see how much they are asking. Also be sure to give them any information you want, like how to customize your image by telling them what animal it's for and what you want it to say, in the "Extra Info" box! Check out ourOther Helpful Information page with Common Terms and Abbreviations for different acronyms commonly used in auctions if you're unsure what they mean!

    To sell an image, go to the auction main page and look for the links that ask you if you want to sell a graphic or layout (towards the top of the page) and click the appropriate one. After that it will give you a form to fill out, and after you do, you're ready to sell the image or layout!

    A seller can accept any bid that they want, it doesn't have to necessarily be the highest one. And once they do, the money will be taken out of the bidder's account and put into escrow until the seller completes the auction and sends the bidder the finished product. Then, the money goes to the seller. If the seller fails to complete the auction, the money is returned to the buyer and the seller is then fined $25,000 HPD. If at the end of the auction time the seller has not accepted a bid, then the auction ends and no bid is accepted automatically. Once a seller accepts your bid, they have 7 days to hold up their end of the bargain before the auction fails, if you've bid on a custom graphic or made arrangements for it to take more time, they may complete the auction with a preview to avoid a fine, but if you do not receive your graphic in the planned time please contact a moderator. If you do have an agreement with the seller that it will take more than 7 days, please save any messages from them to prove this so we can later reference them if there's some sort of issue!

    At this time you cannot auction off other types of graphics like forum avatars and signatures or club cards/banners separately of the animal auctions, but something like this may be a future feature if enough people show interest! In the meantime you can sell those privately by advertising in chat or on the forums and setting up your own transaction :).




    Referrals

    Here on HP we have a pretty cool referral system. By referring people to the game, you can collect "referral points" and once you have a few of them, you can trade them in for HPD and/or upgrade time! Plus our system is set up so that the people referred actually have to play the game in order for the referrer to get the perks which means there are no spam accounts and we get more active players! :).

    This system can be a little bit tricky at first, so you might want to carefully read this section before you do any referrals. For one referral point you can get $500,000 HPD (you can redeem this on the bank page), and for 5 referral points you can get a 30 day upgrade (you can redeem this via the upgrade page). You get one referral point to spend each time someone you refer to the game completes the requirements. In order for you to get a referral point for referring someone, the person must reach 100,000 player points on the game through training their animals. And if the upgrade, the first time only, you get an extra referral point! So that's a potential of two referral points for every person you bring to HP! :).

    You can see your referral points in two places. On your home page you can see how many referral points you have to spend (under your regular player points). And on the rankings page under "Top 25 Referrers" if you've made it there, you can see your over-all referral points (since these don't go away when you spend them and also show up before someone completes the requirements).

    Remember, the more people you refer the bigger HP can be! :). You may also watch out for referral contests as we will sometimes do them for people to win prizes for getting the most referrals. Happy referring!




    Your Settings

    On HP we like to give our members options! That's why there are so many profile settings for you! We thought that all of the different settings and what, exactly, they do might be a little confusing at first, so we've created this guide to help you out!

    There are two major places where you can find settings for your account. Your Profile page, under your account menu, and your home page, all the way at the bottom. There are a couple other random setting spots, so we will also cover those! We'll talk about your profile page options first, since those are more expansive set of options!

    Profile Page
    Game Name: This is the name that other players will see you as on the game. Most players have a made-up name (like a screen name or tag) that they are known around the site as, but some people just use their first name. Whatever you pick, make sure you like it and that it's memorable since that's how people will remember you :). Also keep in mind not to use your full name, we don't want anyone to have any issues with their privacy!
    Email Address: This is the email address associated with your account. You should review our privacy policy for information on how we will use this. Just make sure to keep it current since it can help you re-gain access to accounts you may have lost!
    Secret Question & Answer: In order to change your email address, you must also answer your secret question. There is also an option here to click on if you've forgotten it to have it emailed to you (another reason to keep your email current!). If for some reason you want this changed, you should contact Sam on account 1 to talk about your options. But make sure you remember it since you need it to change your settings and send money on the game!
    Password: You can change your password to login with here. You may want to do this periodically for security purposes :).
    Opt Out of Site Emails: By changing this setting to yes (it's automatically at no) you can opt out of getting emails from us (except for password emails or emails that you request - see our privacy Policy for more info!). We will periodically send out updates, newsletters, and promotions (sometimes with email-specific special discount or prize codes), and we promise we won't spam you!
    Use Dividers: This is a very important setting if you plan to use dividers at all. If it's set at no, you will just have your basic horse and dog dividers. If it's set at yes, then all of the dividers you have bought will show up, but they won't if it's set to no, even if you have them. So make sure you set it to "yes" if you're planning to use them! Also under your accounts menu is a page for dividers, this is where you can edit your specific dividers, but we will talk about that a couple sections down!
    Avatar URL: This is where you should put the URL for the forum avatar (the small image in the op left corner of every forum post by you) if you want to use one.
    Forum Signature:This is what appears beneath your forum posts, you can put the HTML code for an image, text, or both here. Just please keep them within reason (see the rules for accepted image sizes) size- and length-wise.
    Breed Specialty: Your breed specialty is almost your most important setting. You can only change it once every 7 days, but for whatever breed it's set on your get great showing and training perks for your animals :), especially if you're upgraded!
    Stable/Kennel Name: Change the name of your stable or kennel here (they don't have to be the same name), you can be creative and try to match it to your name or just have fun :). This will show up on your home page!
    Stable/Kennel Boarding Fee: Set this to whatever you want. This is the price that people will have to pay in board if your stable/kennel is open and they choose to board there!
    Public Boarding? If set to "closed" this means that only you can board your animals there, if set to "open" it means that anyone can board their animals there provided there are enough empty stalls/crates for them.
    Stalls/Crates Available: This shows how many stalls and/or crates you have available for boarding animals at your stable/kennel!
    Reset Stable and Kennel Description? This will totally wipe all of the colors, HTML/CSS, and words off of your home page (and we won't be able to recover it for you, so make sure you save it if you need to) should you make a mistake and have part of your page blocked or something. You should also have this link on your home page, but you've got this one in case you can't get to it. They do the same thing :).
    Blocked Players: This is actually at the top of your profile page, but I've put it here since you may not have anything in this section unless you've blocked someone (which you can do from the top of their home page, next to the message and riding buddy request links). Here you can edit the list and un-block people if you want. Once you've blocked someone they will no longer be able to communicate with you via messages, but you will still have public areas (talk and forums) where they can communicate with you.

    Home Page
    If you scroll all the way down your home page you will find a few different settings.
    View Pending Riding Buddies: This is above your horses and dogs on your home page, you can accept or reject pending buddy requests (and view your current ones) here.
    Layout Text: Editing this changes the color of your text on your layout when you write things in your description box! You must use hex codes here!
    Layout Background: This changes the over-all background color of your layout. You must use hex codes here!
    Layout Borders: This changes the color of the borders around all of your boxes and dividers. You must use hex codes here!
    Layout Title Bars: This changes the color of the bars where your dividers and money/player points/etc. are! You must use hex codes here!
    Layout Title Text: This changes the color of the text in titles on your page like your name. You must use hex codes here!
    Description: This is where you would put in anything you want to show up on your home page, like your HTML/CSS layouts!
    Reset Stable and Kennel Description? This resets the description settings on your page if you make a mistake or want everything reset. This is the same as the link on your profile page! And remember, we can't retrieve a deleted layout, so make sure you save it!

    Divider Page
    This page can be found under your account menu and is called Dividers. This is where would will go to edit all fo the dividers that you buy in the store. There will be a list of each of your dividers and then the following options:
    Sort order: You can change these numbers to move the dividers around on your page (what order they show up in). The lowest numbers will show up at the top, and the higher numbers will be at the bottom.
    Name: You can change the names of your dividers here.
    Type: This tells you if it's a horse or a dog divider, you cannot change this.
    Delete? If you want to delete a divider, check this box and then click delete selected.

    Remember, if your dividers aren't showing up, make sure you've moved Use Dividers to "yes" on your profile page. You have to put animals in each divider on their individual page. And you can buy as many dividers as you would like from the store for $1,000,000 HPD.

    Other Settings
    Chat Color: You can change your chat color using a hex code, or a basic color word like "black" or "pink" on the chat page. Your color will stick for as long as you are logged into the account, even if you navigate away from the chat page.
    Blocking Players: You can block a player who is bothering you by going to their home page and blicking the "Block player!" link under their name (next to "send message!").




    Upgrading & Upgrade Auctions

    Upgrading comes with tons of perks (listed below this section). You can upgrade via the upgrade page for one month ($5 USD), six months ($15 USD), or one year ($30 USD). Or you can pay someone else to upgrade you with HPD via the upgrade auctions.

    The upgrade auctions are for people who have a little extra USD and want to sell an upgrade to someone else to make a little HPD, and people who only have money to upgrade with HPD. You can find them on the upgrade page! If you want to sell an upgrade, click the sell an upgrade link and fill out the form :). You can sell any length of upgrade, and once you accept a bid you like you ill be taken to PayPal to pay for it and then the other person will automatically get their upgrade and you will get your HPD!

    If you don't accept a bid, the auction will just end and no bid will be accepted. Bidders can bid on any auction they want to, just remember to bid reasonably. Looking at other bids on other auctions can help you figure out what the current going-rate for upgrades is!




    Store

    There are many different types of "stores" and auctions on HP, but thesis the main store. You'll go here to buy horses, dogs, feed, and so much more.

    The store looks slightly different depending on if you're upgraded or not, so here is a short run-down.

    Basic Store:
    Buy a dog – you pick a gender (male or female) and a breed from the dropdown menus, and you get a dog from the store on your account. This animal will have no lines, it is a foundation animal. It will age on Sundays.

    Buy a horse - you pick a gender (male, female, or gelding) and a breed from the dropdown menus, and you get a horse from the store on your account. This animal will have no lines, it is a foundation animal. It will age on Sundays.

    Buy shows – this lets you buy the ability to train one of your animals in 10 extra shows for the week. Any animal from your breed specialty will show up in the dropdown menu, and you can select it and buy the shows. Now when you go to that animal’s page, their maximum energy will have gone up by 10, so you can train in the extra shows. This extra energy expires Sunday, when shows reset for the week.

    Dividers – on your home page, it automatically separates horses and dogs. If you buy a divider, you can further separate them. This way if you have two lines of horses, and you don’t want them to get confused, you can put them in their own divider. It’s just an in-game way of organizing your list of animals on your home page.

    Upgrade Store:
    100 daily servings of feed – upgraded players can have a stable and a kennel where other players can board their animals. You need to have the feed from the store to feed those animals. Depending on how much money you want to spend, you can buy either 100 servings or 1,000 servings. One serving is one day of food for an animal.

    1,000 daily servings of feed - upgraded players can have a stable and a kennel where other players can board their animals. You need to have the feed from the store to feed those animals. Depending on how much money you want to spend, you can buy either 100 servings or 1,000 servings. One serving is one day of food for an animal. You get a small discount for buying in-bulk (the 1,000 servings).

    1 additional stall – upgraded players can have a stable for horses to go in (your own and other players), but you need to buy stalls to have space for them. Each stall can hold one horse.

    1 additional crate - upgraded players can have a kennel for dogs to go in (your own and other players), but you need to buy crates to have space for them. Each kennel can hold one dog.

    Buy a dog – you pick a gender (male or female) and a breed from the dropdown menus, and you get a dog from the store on your account. This animal will have no lines, it is a foundation animal. It will age on Sundays.

    Buy a horse - you pick a gender (male, female, or gelding) and a breed from the dropdown menus, and you get a horse from the store on your account. This animal will have no lines, it is a foundation animal. It will age on Sundays.

    Training license (50 horse tickets) – horse tickets are an additional way, besides shows, for animals to gain points. Every 30 days you can buy a new training license from the store, which will give you 50 tickets. You can then access these tickets from your home page. Each ticket will give a horse 75 points. You must set the price of each individual ticket when you buy the set from the store, and chose if they are public (anyone can request them) or private (only horses on your account can request them).

    Training license (50 dog tickets) – dog tickets are an additional way, besides shows, for animals to gain points. Every 30 days you can buy a new training license from the store, which will give you 50 tickets. You can then access these tickets from your home page. Each ticket will give a dog 75 points. You must set the price of each individual ticket when you buy the set from the store, and chose if they are public (anyone can request them) or private (only dogs on your account can request them).

    Buy shows – this lets you buy the ability to train one of your animals in 10 extra shows for the week. Any animal from your breed specialty will show up in the dropdown menu, and you can select it and buy the shows. Now when you go to that animal’s page, their maximum energy will have gone up by 10, so you can train in the extra shows. This extra energy expires Sunday, when shows reset for the week.

    Mass Feeder – in your stable or kennel you normally have to feed animals one week at a time. If you buy the mass feeder from the store, you can now type in how many days you want to feed an animal for. Especially when feeding for many days, this saves a lot of time. Buying it once will activate it on both your stable and your kennel. It will stay on your account until your upgrade expires.

    Dividers – on your home page, it automatically separates horses and dogs. If you buy a divider, you can further separate them. This way if you have two lines of horses, and you don’t want them to get confused, you can put them in their own divider. It’s just an in-game way of organizing your list of animals on your home page.
