Time for your horse
The horse's day is not the same as a real day. The history of the day is on the left side of the horse's page. A horse's day starts when it wakes up at 8 a.m. Each of the horse's actions takes a certain amount of time. For example, meals take 30 minutes.
Your horse must be put to bed before midnight (horse time), after which time horses can no longer carry out actions. The only exception is foaling, which can happen at any time. To keep a horse in top shape, you should put it to bed no later than 10 pm.
Your horse needs to be boarded in an equestrian centre so that you can put it to bed at the end of the day.
Foals that are less than 6 months old can be bedded down even if they are not boarded in an equestrian centre.
Once your horse is bedded down, it will automatically age at the time of the site's update (18:00). Once it wakes up, a new day begins. In the game, horses age 2 months each time they wake up.
If you have not put your horse to bed, it will not age automatically during the night. This means that if you are not playing, your horse will not age. In order to age it without waiting for the next day, you need ageing points. You will sometimes find some when your horse wakes up (it will be mentioned in the history). If not, you can purchase ageing points with passes.
There are two items from the Black Market that allow you to get around the ageing rules:
- The Water of Youth, allows you to age your horse on a monthly basis starting from the age of 2 years old
- Morpheus' Arms, allows you to age your horse as you wish until it's 30 years old
Unlike ageing points, these items must be assigned to a specific horse.
After its 25th birthday, your horse gets old, and its health and skills begin to decline. If you take good care of it, your horse can live up to a maximum of 35 years. If you give your horse the Philosopher's Stone, it becomes immortal and its skills never decline.
