Happy tenth birthday HP!


Woah! We made it to 10 years old! I'm so happy and excited, and I can't wait to see what the next 10 years bring for us! THIS IS A LOT OF EXCLAMATION POINTS AND I DON'T EVEN FEEL BAD ABOUT IT!!!!


 


Just a reminder, the trivia word search (post below this one!) is due tomorrow by midnight!


 



To celebrate, we're doing a birthday cake hunt today! There are 30 decorated cakes hidden around the game, and the only clue is that there are none on player or animal pages.


 


You have until Monday 5/20 at 12 pm (noon) HP time to find them all and you will get 200 points per cake you find and your choice between 7 days of upgrade time or 80 energy to split between any animals you want if you find all 30 before the deadline!


 


To submit your answers, send me a message on account #1 telling me which page you found each cake on, and the appropriate animal/account ID's for any prizes you get. (Please be aware that we can only give an animal a maximum of 100 energy, so if you've bought extra energy for your animals already, please plan accordingly when sending ID's for prizes.)


 



I thought it would be fun to take a stroll down memory lane and do a little HP art-walk of all of the site-art we have had over the years (that we still have copies/screenshots of). Enjoy!


 


Also, please feel free to share your old art in the forums! We'd love to see how far everyone has come.


 



























 



Reply to this forum thread with your favorite HP memory and one thing you're looking forward to about the NEXT 10 years on HP to be entered into a random drawing to win a HP refrigerator magnet!


 


Drawing will be done on Monday 5/20. You must be 18 years or older to enter. If you win this giveaway, you will be required to send me your real mailing address to receive your prize. You can read more about how we keep your private information safe in your Privacy Policy.

So hard to pick just one memory! But maybe when I got my first 7 miller, aka my highest-pointed pixel! 

(But also, cheers to all the friends I've made and all the pixels I've trained ♥)

I'm really looking forward to seeing HP evolve into a super active game with all the coolest features (like a way to freeze your accounts while on holiday!!!!)

Yay!!!  Happy 10th birthday, HP!!  I wish I discovered HP 10 years ago to be able to have been around from the start :D

 

I just kind of got started here, but my favorite memory thus far is more of a realization over the first few weeks: how nice and friendly everyone is here (I was also going through a rough time in my personal life, so it was just really, really wonderful).  I had quite a few questions and those who I reached out to were so warm and friendly :)  AND Hera gave me a bunch of amazing back ups... I was so excited it literally felt like I was 7 years old again and it was Christmas morning.

 

And in the next 10 years, aside from cool new features (account freeze?!), I'm really looking forward to being a more active member of the HP family and all of the new friendships we will all be making :)

Monnie you are seriously the coolest graphic artist lol I LOVE your work

I wish I had some old pictures from the days when I used paint because those were hilariously bad lol. Here's an old one though!

 

 

favorite memory...hm...I've been doing this for so long. Honestly I think it would be the day I discovered this game because it was a bit after I left HL and I had really been missing a good horse/dog SIM so it was so nice to find a game like the old HL, but better!

Oh my favorite memory and thing I'm looking forward to..

Favorite memory would probably be... idk I have so many.. Let's go with the first time I got a coding order :D It was a Scottish Clydesdale layout for Tronic and Shlee and I made the image and fit it into the code and painted a tartan scarf and found a tartan pattern for the code and looking back on it, I can't even cringe I'm just so proud of what I accomplished then :P

Oh geez and then there was when my mascot entry won runner-up! Kylo Ren won due to votes and I am still so ridiculously thankful :D I was in my truck in the school parking lot when I logged in and saw he won runner-up and I screamed because holy crap that was unexpected. It was awesome. Winning Grand Prize this year with Toothless was the same feeling - thanks again to everybody who voted and helped out with both my baby boys :D

Thing I'm looking forward to - probably more mascot contests! I think I'll try teaming up next year ;D I'm also looking forward to advancing my breeds, seeing where my project line goes and getting more players interested in Knabstruppers and Korean Jindos ^^

PS aww thank you bbys,

My favorite memory would be getting my first GSD to 5million. It took a while, but I did it.

I am looking forward to seeing HP grow and expand it's community and stay active and fun.

Happy Birthday, HP! We share a birthday. (;

My greatest memory on HP is getting my Russian Arabian Elena to 10,159,200 points. At the time of her retirement, there was only one other horse over 10mil (Opus Dei @ 10,475,780) and Elena retired as #2 on the All Time Rankings! I'm still so insanely proud of how far I got her.

One thing I'm looking forward to in the coming years on HP is the new layout changes coming! (:

I think my favorite HP memory has to be when I started (very randomly) my project Ivan. Everyone was so supportive in helping me buy/find tickets and shows and I even had a few players message me randomly for updates. It was my first big, not at all planned project, and I met my goal with some super supportive people :)

 

I think I'm most excited or looking forward to starting my memorial lines for Mocha, which I hope to plan a little better lol. Plus it will be my first time actually breeding horses!

 

 

Also very jealous of everyone's art because I still look like I make things in paint lmao.
