Horses, called Mares if female and Stallions if male, are tameable herbivores with a fast movement speed. A Horse will increase the carrying capacity of any caravan it's part of by 84 kg. The horse is also the fastest rideable pack animal, applying a 1.6 speed factor to their rider.

Horses can come in a variety of different colours : White, Gray, Black, Brown, and Light Brown.

Acquisition

Horses can be found in temperate forests, temperate swamps, arid shrublands, and boreal forests. They can either be tamed by a handler or self-tame in a random event, and can be bought and sold in other faction bases and from bulk goods traders. Horses purchased from traders will be already tamed.

Analysis

When slaughtered, a horse yields 67 meat and 25 leather as a foal; 168 meat and 48 as a juvenile; or 336 meat and 96 leather as an adult.

An adult mare consumes 0.68 nutrition per day. If her offspring are slaughtered immediately, a mare will produce 0.5 nutrition of meat per day, giving a nutrition efficiency of 0.74. If the offspring are allowed to grow to adulthood before they are slaughtered, they will consume an additional 1 nutrition per day, but will instead yield 2.52 nutrition per day as they are slaughtered, resulting in a nutrition efficiency of 1.506. When considering a population of equal numbers of stallions and mares, these nutrition efficiencies fall to 0.37 for baby slaughter and 1.071 for adult slaughter.

Taken as a whole, horses are perhaps the best animal to raise for meat: when slaughtered as adults, they provide even more nutrition than cows, and thanks to their large meat yield and longer gestation time than animals such as chickens, they are a very low work-intensive animal to rear. Maintaining a population of horses for meat is also be useful for caravans, where they are probably the best pack animal. Their biggest competitors for the niche of a low work, high nutrition efficiency animal would be gazelles and ibexes.

Slaughtering horses is not their only use, however, as they make excellent pack animals. Boasting the best balance of food consumption, speed bonus and carry weight, the horse is easily the best pack animal in the game, with it's quick growth rate complimenting this fact.

*As of version 1.1.2610, all animals can be tamed. The percentage of likelihood of success depends on factors such as the Animals Wildness Percentage, Pawn Handling Skill, and others. More information can be found on the animals page.
