We'd like to welcome our newest farrier update to Equestriworlds!

Here is a guide on caring for your horses hooves, farrier information, and how to prevent hoof problems.

Your horse's hooves are a big responsibility! They grow just like human nails. They need to be trimmed, cared for, and even supported with shoes! There are many types of shoes that you can put on your horses.
Here is a list of the shoe types and what they do:
Keg Shoe:
A keg shoe is your basic horse shoe, they last 8 weeks. Keg shoes are recommended for all horses that aren't consistently showing and in light work.
Rim Shoe:
A rim shoe is similar to keg, just with a little extra grip. These shoes last 7 weeks, and are great for horses that are in a little bit more work. Rim shoes are great for faster gaits on soft grounds.
Aluminum Shoe:
Aluminum shoes are awesome shoes for horses in work. This speed increasing shoe is awesome for horses that compete in time based competitions. (SJ, XC, Eventing, Barrel Racing, Pole Bending) Aluminum is a light weight metal, allowing for easier stride movement. These shoes last 4 weeks.
Rock n' Roll Shoe:
This shoe is a type specifically shaped for dressage horses that are competing in high levels. Some shows on Equestriworlds may require this shoe type in order to compete. A rock n' roll shoe lasts 5 weeks.
Race Plate Shoe:
A race plate is described exactly by the name. It's for race horses on the track! This shoe gives a great speed boost. This shoe should only be used in races. This shoe lasts for 3 weeks, and if you are caught with these shoes on in any other competition other than a race, you could be disqualified.
Bar Shoe:
A bar shoe is a medical type shoe. This shoe specifically helps hoof bruising by offering support in specific places. This shoe should be on horses with a hoof bruise for no more than 6 weeks.
Remedial Bar Shoe:
A remedial bar shoe is another type of medical shoe that only lasts 2 weeks. This shoe can be used on horses recovering from white line disease.
Egg Bar Shoe:
This medical shoe is mainly used on horses with navicular syndrome. It can help alleviate pain from horses with navicular. This shoe lasts 6 weeks.
Heart Bar Shoe:
A heart bar shoe is another medical type shoe. This is a very versatile shoe, offering support for hooves that are just not in good shape. This shoe can be used on laminitic horses, foundered horses, and horses healing from a quarter crack in the hoof. This shoe lasts 5 weeks.
No Shoes At All:
All horses are allowed to be barefoot if you choose! Farriers can trim a barefoot horse. 

A good farrier will assign a shoe type to your horse that is best fitting for the job that your horse does. Whether the horse competes heavily, shows lightly, gives light lessons, or sits in a pasture! If your farrier does not assign a shoe type, or applies the wrong shoe, your horses hooves could be jeopardized.

Pay close attention to your horses hoof growth with /h records and click [Farrier]. This will show the assigned shoe type, the type of shoes they have on now, and how many days since the last trim from the farrier. When your horse gets around 35-42 days since the last trim, you'll want to call a farrier over to work on your horse.

Take precautions to prevent hoof issues. Use a hoof pick often. This will prevent illnesses like thrush and abscesses. Riding on hard blocks such as stone, cobblestone, any minerals found underground (diorite, granite, andesite) can be really bad for your horses hooves. Riding on such blocks can create hoof bruising and abscesses. Leading them over the blocks is okay, but avoid riding them on these blocks.

Keep your horse healthy to prevent illnesses related to weight. Being overweight or underweight are both bad for the horse. Not having enough nutrients can cause hooves to be dry and weak, creating white line disease. Too many nutrients can cause joint related problems such as navicular and laminitis.

If you suspect your horse is having hoof issues, call out for a farrier to come check them over!

Equestriworlds 3.0 was brought on for one of our biggest updates ever. This update was our most realistic and interactive update. In addition to our realistic aspects, this also brought on our custom barn/plot plugin which allowed us to customize everything from the flags, to the barn shop to make purchases on a plot. Equestriworlds 3.0 can be broken up into a few categories.

- Custom Barn/Plots
- Veterinary Care/Vaccinations
- Grooming
- Feeding/Watering (Health and Hydration)
- Mucking Stalls
- Basic Horse Breeds
- Basic Horse Ages
- Basic Horse Breeding Cycle/Mare Heat Cycle


All of these categories will be broken down with the basics of how it works below:

Barns/Plots
Each plot is a 250x250 area for you to build your dream barn. One plot costs$50,000. Before building, you must purchase what you want to buy with /b shop. The barn shop contains all buildable things from stalls to houses. Custom arena size selection is an easy to use feature that allows any size four-corner arena. Circular or oval arenas must be calculated by the largest dimension.

There are multiple permission ranks that you can allow your friends or other players to be based on what they should have permission to use on your plot.
- Friend: Allows Friend to ride, use all useable blocks/items, and build only when the plot owner is online.
-Trustee: Allows all of the above, and can also build at any time.
- Admin: Allows all of  the above, as well as making any purchases on the plot, adding and removing any other people to the plot, and adding flags to the plot. Be careful who you allow as an Admin.

Barn flags only consisted of the following: useblock and placeblock. A public flag asks for the items you want guests to be able to use.
Usage: /b flag add useblock [tab to see list of available blocks]
After this flag is added, any guest can use the blocks you allow.
Or, if you want to allow guests to break and place blocks, use /b flag add placeblock [tab to see list of available blocks]

Barns also allow the plot owners to ban and unban guests from their plots. A player banned from a plot cannot visit or enter your plot.

See what is purchased on your plot with /b see. And see the worth of your barn, added players, and the plot number with /b info.

Veterinary Care/Vaccinations:
All horses should have vaccinations. Vaccinations last 30-35 days. Some vaccinations however, aren't strong enough to resist a contagious horse (EHV, Strangles).
A healthy horse will display good symptoms on /h symptoms. When a horse is ill, he or she will display symptoms of the ailment it has. For example, a cut will have the symptoms of pain, bleeding, or swelling. You may want to contact a vet to make sure, and to ask how you should treat it.
Veterinarians can run tests to confirm an illness. Tests can be run on almost all illnesses except for visual ailments (cuts, thrush). Tests can be taken with samples of skin, feces, blood, urine, fur/coat, nasal swab, saliva, and and X-Ray and Ultrasound can be performed on the horse. After a minute wait, the vet will receive results of the test which can be given to the owner.
After tests are given, your vet will provide a perscription that you can pick up at the pharmacy and how to care for the illness the next couple days.
Vets can also perform surgery on a few ailments such as: a bone chip, broken cannon bone, a botulism procedure, and a castration procedure. Each surgery is a GUI multiple choice "test" to test the vets ability to perform a surgery. In each surgery there is often one wrong answer that could be fatal to the horse. It's important that the vet recognizes this choice and remembers that it could be a fatal mistake.

Grooming: See "Horse Care" forum.
Grooming is a huge part of horse care, a horse deprived of grooming can often get mange and thrush. 

Feeding/Watering: See "Feeding Information" forum.
Horses need food and water to stay healthy and hydrated! Buy your feed at Kellour Co!

Mucking Stalls
The most famous part of owning a horse is mucking stalls. Horses poop and pee daily when standing on shavings. Clean their stalls when they get dirty! You can order bags or loads of shavings at Kellour Co. There are different color pitchforks, each of them have a different damage value, the blue pitchfork lasts the longest!

Basic Horse Breeds:
All horses have a breed, when joining back on to 3.0 your horse will have a line of text in /h info that says "Choose Breed". At the bottom of the /h info chat, there's a clickable text line that says [Choose Breed]. This allows you to pick the breed you want the horse to be. 
If you do not pick the horses breed it will not have a real breed. It will say a breed, but it is not the real one until you pick it.

Basic Horse Ages
There are 4 age groups in 3.0. Colt/Filly, Yearling, Adolescent, and Adult. Colts and Fillies need to stay with their birth mother until the yearling age. If they get separated, the foal will not eat from a different mare.
A yearling is able to eat the Foal-Mix feed from the feed bowl and should be separated from its dam. If necessary, it can eat other feeds from your hand.
An adolescent is an adult size horse and can be ridden. An adolescent cannot breed, and will eat like an adult horse.
An adult can be ridden and breed and will consume the regular amount of feed.

Basic Horse Breeding/Heat Cycle
Stallions have a cool down of 2 days after breeding to a mare.
Mares go into a heat cycle about every two weeks, each cycle lasting between 1 and 3 days. When a mare is in heat, she will produce more urine, and show symptoms or being in heat. She will also start following stallions. This is when she can be bred.
After she gives birth, there is about an 85% chance she'll go into an after birth heat cycle, this is best for broodmares.
Mare-Care helps increase the chances of an after-birth heat cycle, and also helps produce a better foal.
Overweight mares (Above a body score of 7) have a small chance of having a miscarriage.
Underweight mares (Below a body score of 4) have a small chance of having a foal prematurely. Premature foals have a small chance of death during birth.

How to care for your mare and foal


After you breed your mare to a stallion of choice, your mare will immediately show signs of pregnancy in her symptoms. Symptoms will include:
- Increased Hunger
- Grumpy
- Angry
- Decreased Stats
Instead of the normal .80 point decrease in health, she will now lose .90 daily. Please give her appropriate feed to make up for more hunger. She'll be eating for two!

Your mare's gestation period (time of pregnancy) will last 7 days from the day of breeding.  Please supplement her with one cup of Mare-Care daily, including the day she is impregnated. Without Mare-Care, the foals stats may be less than average and her chances of having a heat cycle after birth will be lower. Keep your mare at a slightly higher body condition, 4-7 is best. Higher or lower than that can cause complications at birth.

After the 7 day gestation period, you will be notified that she will give birth soon when you come online. The birth can take up to two hours. When your foal is born, please claim it with /h claim. If you plan on vaccinating or branding, please do so at this time. You do not have to neuter right away, but if you would like to, you may. 

Day 1:
After the foal is born, it will nurse off the mother for 7 days. The foal will not need feed or water, its mother will still need .90 worth of feed daily. Mare-Care supplement can be eliminated now. Please keep the dam and foal together during this period.

Day 8:
After the foal stage, he/she will turn into a yearling. Your yearling will still be small sized, but they can be weaned from their mother. A yearling will eat 5 cups of Foal-Mix per day. Your yearling will follow around other horses, think of this as him/her trying to make friends. You can sell the yearling or transfer ownership at this stage. Worms are common in this stage.

Day 15:
Yearling stage will pass, and adolescent comes in. Your adolescent horse can now be ridden and will eat like an adult, taking in .80 points per day. At this stage, he/she cannot breed yet. Worms are common in this stage.

Day 21: 
Your horse is now an adult! He/she is now able to breed.

Warning and Ban Information
In this forum is a description of things that may happen if you break the rules!

These rules are subject to change at ANY moment.


How many warnings make a ban?
Warnings can be given for many different things! Warnings will stay on your record as a player and are unable to be removed. Warnings can be given for things like spamming chat, excessive use of capital letters, minor griefing, arguing with players, being disrespectful, and many more! As a server, we have a limit to just how much we can tolerate.
Warnings given should not be argued over, if you have a serious problem with a warning you were given, you can ask to get it appealed and provide a good reason to have it appealed.

8 Chat Related Warnings (Capitals, spam, long chats, inappropriate behavior in chat, ect.) = 5 Day Temporary Ban.

6 Incomplete Barn Payments Warnings (Building, but not paying) = 3 Day Temporary Ban, 7 Day Creative Mode Ban (After the temporary ban)

4 Refusals To Comply To A Simple Request (Being asked to not do something, but continuing) = 3 Day Temporary Ban

2 Griefing Warnings (Destroying the property of others) = 8 Day Temporary Ban

3 Stealing Warnings (Taking another persons property) = 8 Day Temporary Ban, Must Pay Worth of Stolen Items or Give Back If Possible

5 Disrespect Warnings (Insults, excessive cursing at someone, unnecessary snappiness) = 5 Day Temporary Ban

5 Issue Starters (Starting fights with players or staff, arguing constantly, general unfriendliness) = 7 Day Temporary Ban

3 Warnings of Intentionally Getting Other Players Horse's Sick (Bringing your extremely contagious horse around other horses) = 7 Day Temporary Ban, Forced Payment Of Vet Bills Of The Horses That Got Sick


Anyone can be warned for anything, these are just some examples of what can get you banned! 

Here's what can get you permanently banned for:

Trolling (Only on the server to annoy and harass players and staff) = Permanent ban, no chance of appeal.

Extreme Griefing (Destroying a whole building or area of land) = Permanent ban, slim chance of appeal.

Attempting to Return Paid Features (Back charging or disputing payments) = Permanent ban, no chance of appeal.

Having Cheats/Mods (Item spawners, X-Ray, other cheats/mods) = Permanent ban, no chance of appeal.

Cheating Money (Over $100,000) = Permanent Ban, slim chance of appeal


If you have any questions on what will or will not get you a ban or warning, please message us.
