A Horse is a passive mob that can be commonly found in Plains, Forests and Extreme Hills biomes.
Horses can be found in the Overworld in Plains, Forests and Plains in herds consisting of many Horses. Foals may also be found in herds.
Most types of Horses will drop Leather when killed. Rarer kinds of Horses, such as Unicorns or Fairy Horses, have a small chance to a Unicorn Horn when killed and Ghost Horses have a chance to drop Ghast Tears.
- As of DEV v8.0.0 for Minecraft 1.8, Mo' Creatures Horses can now get ready to breed by feeding them a Golden Carrot. Their health and speed has also been increased.
Vanilla Minecraft Horses and Mo' Creatures Horses
In Minecraft 1.6, Horses were added to the game, which changed the types of Mo' Creatures Horses that could spawn.
- If both vanilla Horses and Mo' Creatures Horses are set to spawn in a world, the easiest way to distinguish between them is by looking at their eyes. Mo' Creatures Horses have more detailed eyes, complete with irises.
- Mo' Creatures Horses have different textures when equipped with Mount Armor.
- Minecraft Horse foals (baby Horses) have skinny legs, where as Mo' Creatures Horses don't, as their limbs remain the same size from foal to adult.
To breed a vanilla Minecraft Horse and a Mo' Creatures Horse, you must give the Mo' Creatures Horse either a Pumpkin, Mushroom Stew or Cake and a vanilla Minecraft Horse a Golden Apple; this will then start the breeding process.
Mo' Creatures Horses are much slower than vanilla Horses, all Mo' Creatures Horses have a speed of 4 (although this has been increased in the dev version for 1.8 of Minecraft), while vanilla Horses have an average speed of up to 7, although they jump higher than vanilla Horses by up to 2 and a half blocks.
Mo' Creatures Horses don't take damage from suffocation or from being punched by a player with an empty hand. Strangely, Mo' Creatures Horses are also fireproof, but they will take damage when standing in lava.
TamingIn order to tame a Horse, it must first be given a Crafted Saddle (vanilla Minecraft saddles will also work) by right-clicking on the Horse with the saddle in hand, this is opposite to the vanilla Minecraft taming method since you have to put the saddle on the Horse first in order to tame it, otherwise it will be more difficult and thus will result in being thrown off the Horse many times.
You must then give the Horse any appropriate food item (such as Bread) to reduce its temper by right-clicking on it. Each type of Horse has an amount of temper that must be removed before it can be tamed successfully. Many food items will reduce temper by different amounts:
Wheat and Hay Stacks reduces 25 temper, a Sugar Lump reduces 50 temper, Bread reduces 100 temper, and an Apple will tame the Horse instantly without the next step. Giving a Horse an Apple is a recommend way in order to tame it successfully without having to mount it and therefore being kicked off many times. Golden Apples can also be used and have the same effect as an Apple when given to a Horse.
Once temper has been sufficiently reduced, you can then mount the Horse. It may throw you off several times or, if temper has been reduced enough, become tamed and will allow you to name it.
Once a Horse or several Horses has/have been tamed, it is possible to breed them in order to obtain more rare Horses.There are many different variants that can be created, all with different coat colors. There are even special types that can be created with the help of some rare drops.
The Rules of Horse Breeding:
To successfully breed Horses, these rules must be followed for the entire process:
- The pair of Horses must not be more than 4 blocks away from each other, it is recommended that you place the two Horses in an enclosure for this step.
- There must not be another Horse within 8 blocks of the breeding pair.
- Both Horses must be fed their appropriate foods to begin the breeding process (Pumpkins, Mushroom Stew, or Cake). Love hearts will then appear around the Horses (as shown in the picture above), similar to the particle effect that surrounds breeding vanilla Minecraft mobs. (These particles may fade away, if that happens, you may need to find a different Horse).
- Horses must be left for around half a Minecraft day (about 10 minutes) after being fed the proper item. Pegasus and Unicorns take over 1 Minecraft day, which is around 20 minutes.
Note: It is not graphic when Horses are being bred, as Minecraft is a kid-friendly game, this also applies to other breedable mobs, such as Kitties and Dolphins.
Breeding Normal HorsesTo breed normal Horses, follow this breeding chart. How to Use the Breeding Chart:
The breeding chart is similar to a multiplication table. After finding the desired Horse, look to the top Horse of that column, and the far left Horse of the row will show the required Horse/s to breed.
By breeding those two Horses, they have a chance of giving birth to that desired Horse.
Keep in mind that breeding Horses will not always create the desired Horse, and will sometimes produce a Horse that is the same type as one of the parents. If this is the case, there is no option but to try again (unless Easy Breeding has been turned on in the settings).
For instance, to breed the Grey and White spotted Horse (2nd row down, 6th column), a White Horse and a Minecraft Black Horse are needed, (although you may need their Minecraft counterparts).
The small subscripted number in the top left of each Horse picture represents the "tier" of the Horse. There are four tiers. Typically, the objective is to breed at least one or two Tier 4 Horses in order to begin breeding special Horses.
Once this has been worked out, the breeding chart is simple and quite easy to use.
The foal will be tamed to the player almost immediately after birth and the naming screen will then appear. You can instantly breed the two parent Horses as soon as the foal has been born, but you have to move it to another place first.
After giving the two parent Horses the food items necessary for breeding, you must stay in the Overworld, if you go into another dimension, the foal will be wild and will need to be tamed like other Horses.
There are five types of tamable Mo' Creatures Horses that occur naturally in the wild, as well as Zebras, and many more are obtainable by breeding. There are also a handful of rare special Horses that require both breeding and items in order to obtain them.
There are about 45 breeds/species of Horse and Horse-like creatures that can be tamed or created, from the common Horse breeds to the exotic Zebra, to the incredibly rare, mythical Horses such as the Unicorn and Pegasus.
These breeds can be obtained in a variety of ways, and provide a variety of benefits.
Tier 1 HorsesNote: As of Minecraft 1.6, most of these Horses have been replaced by the vanilla Minecraft Horses. However, it is possible to breed Mo' Creatures Horses with vanilla Horses to get the missing Tier 1 Horses, as well as the Tier 2, 3, and 4 Horses. There are five breeds of Horse in this tier.
Tier 2 HorsesAs of Minecraft 1.6, three out of of the Tier 2 Horses can be found in the wild. This includes the Bright Creamy Horse, the Speckled Horse and the Chestnut Brown Horse. There are four breeds in this tier.
Tier 3 HorsesThese uncommon breeds can still be obtained by breeding Minecraft Horses with Mo' Creatures Horses. They are needed for creating the Tier 4 Horses. There are three breeds of Tier 3 Horses.
Tier 4 Horses
Tier 4 Horses, as the name suggests, are the last (and possibly the most important) Horses. These Horses, unlike the the other Horse breeds, can be used to tame a Zebra whilst riding one, which is why they are needed for a Zorse and the special Horses.In order to tame a Zebra, however, you need to approach a Zebra with an Apple whilst riding a Tier 4 Horse. There are two breeds of Tier 4 Horses.
Once a Tier 4 Horse has been bred, breeding can be taken a step further to tame/breed/create the many types of special Horses that this mod has to offer. Most of the other types of breeds (such as Donkeys and Mules) can carry inventories.
Donkeys are a special kind of Horse, they can be equipped with both a Chest and Saddle, and can be bred with a Horse or a Zebra to create a Mule or Zonkey. Mo’ Creatures Donkeys look almost identical to vanilla Donkeys except for the eyes, and the stripe texture on the back, but Mo’ Creatures Donkeys can no longer be found in the wild due to the vanilla Horses replacement. Instead, you can use a vanilla Donkey to breed a Mo’ Creatures Mule or Zonkey.Like their Mo' Creatures counterparts, vanilla Donkeys can carry chests.
MuleMules are a cross between a Donkey and any other type of Horse. Because of this, they can not be found in the wild. They can be obtained by breeding a Donkey with any breed of Horse. They look similar to Donkeys, but they have a dark Brown coat instead of a Grey coat. Like their real life counterparts, Mules are sterile.
Zebras are commonly found in Plains and Forests amongst the groups or herds of naturally spawned vanilla Minecraft and Mo' Creatures Horses. Zebras are used to create Zorses and Zonkeys. To tame a Zebra, you have to give it an Apple whilst riding on a Tier 4 Horse, another Zebra or a Zorse.
There is an Easter egg that involves Zebras: by right-clicking on a tamed Zebra with any Music Disc. After doing so, a Zebra Record will be received in return. When a Zebra Record is played near tamed Zebras, they begin dancing, and will continue to do so until the music is turned off. The music is from LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem.Due to a glitch in some versions of Mo' Creatures (for Minecraft 1.7 or newer), Zebras will not 'shuffle' when the music is played. In some cases, the music doesn't play either.
ZorseA Zorse is a cross between a Horse and a Zebra. Zorses can be obtained by breeding a Zebra with any type of normal Horse. They are important Horses that are needed for creating most mythical Horses; they are born sterile. Giving any of the four Essences to a Zorse creates the special Horses.
ZonkeyA Zonkey is a cross between a Zebra and a Donkey that can be made by breeding a Donkey with a Zebra. A Zonkey resembles a Zorse but with longer ears. Zonkeys, like Mules and Donkeys, can be given their own inventory with a chest. They can not be used to tame Zebras.
Zombie Horses and Skeleton Horses are undead Horses, along with their rare variants. To create a tamable Zombie Horse, simply use an Essence of Undead on any type of normal Horse. The Zombie Horse will only be temporary, however.
Over time, Zombie Horses lose their flesh and become Skeleton Horses. If a Zombie Horse with flesh is desired, use an Essence of Light, and you will see the flesh light up a little Greener and any exposed bone will be grown over.
By using an Essence of Undead on a Pegasus or a Black Pegasus, it will turn into a Zombie Pegasus. Giving an Essence of Undead to a Unicorn will turn it into a Zombie Unicorn. Over time, their flesh will also fall off and it will become a Skeleton Pegasus, a normal Skeleton Horse or a Skeleton Unicorn. Zombie Pegasi can fly, and Zombie Unicorns retain the Unicorn's ability to charge at mobs.
When a Zombie Pegasus or a Zombie Unicorn is killed, Maggots will spawn in its place. Over time their flesh will fall off, creating a Skeleton Horse after several "stages" of decay.Tamed Skeleton Horses won’t burn if exposed to daylight. A Skeleton Horse/Unicorn/Pegasi can not be given an Essence of Light to regain its flesh, unlike Zombie Horses, Zombie Unicorns and Zombie Pegasi.Because Skeleton Horses are still technically undead mobs after they have lost all of their flesh, they will take damage from Splash Potions of Healing.
Bat HorseA Bat Horse is a flying Horse that can be using an Essence of Darkness on a Zorse. The Zorse will then transform into a Bat Horse within a few seconds after being applied to it. A Bat Horse can be used to create a Pegasus. Tamed Bat Horses won’t burn if exposed to daylight.
A Nightmare is a fireproof Horse that can be obtained by using an Essence of Fire on a Zorse.
Nightmares have the unique ability to leave a trail of fire behind them when Redstone is used on them, or when a Whip is used on the ground beside them. The Nightmare can then be ridden normally, and the effect will last for a short amount of time. It is advised, however, that the player should be careful when riding a Nightmare whilst it has its ability activated, as it may set houses or buildings on fire, so it is recommended to do in an open area where they are no wooden structures.
A Nightmare can be used to create a Unicorn. Nightmares have an animated texture for their coat. They can not wear Mount Armor.Like other Horses (except special Horses), tamed Nightmares can also be bred via the normal breeding process of Mo' Creatures Horses.
A Unicorn is a rare unique Horse that is only obtainable by special means. In order to obtain one, a tamed Nightmare must be given an Essence of Light. Unicorns can be bred using an Essence of Light. Unicorns have the ability to charge opponents if a Whip is used on them, and they can also glide slowly to the ground so that they take no fall damage.When a Unicorn jumps, a trail of star-shaped particle effects follows behind it. If a Unicorn is given an Essence of Undead, it will turn into an Undead Unicorn, which will then become a Skeleton Unicorn over time. Unicorns are needed in order to breed Fairy Horses. To heal a Unicorn, use an Essence of Light or throw a Splash Potion of Healing at it. Unicorns drop a Unicorn Horn upon death.
A Pegasus is a rare flying Horse. A Pegasus can be obtained by feeding a Bat Horse an Essence of Light above cloud level (around Y = 150). Pegasi can move faster and fly a little quicker than Bat Horses, and are needed to breed Fairy Horses. If a Pegasus is fed an Essence of Undead, it will turn into an Undead Pegasus, which will then become a Skeleton Pegasus over time. A Pegasus will drop Feathers when killed.A Pegasus can be healed by giving it an Essence of Light or by throwing a Splash Potion of Healing at it.
Dark PegasusA Dark Pegasus (or a Black Pegasus) is a much rarer variant of the White Pegasus that can be obtained by giving Pegasus an Essence of Darkness. Black Pegasi can be given their own inventory by right-clicking on them with a chest. They fly a little slower than regular Pegasi, but they are fireproof. They drop Feathers and Leather when killed.
Ghost Horse/Flying Ghost Horse
A Ghost Horse is a rare Horse that can only be obtained by killing a tamed Horse. There are two types of Ghost Horses: the normal Ghost Horse and the flying Ghost Horse. A normal Ghost Horse can be obtained by killing any rare or any Tier Four Horse. Flying Ghost Horses can be obtained by killing a Pegasus, a Dark Pegasus, a Bat Horse or a Fairy Horse. Horses have a 1/10 chance of being replaced with a Ghost Horse when killed. Crystal Horse Armor can be placed on Ghost Horses. A flying Ghost Horse is transparent, so the rider gets the ability to see through water which may be handy on a multiplayer server.Ghost Horses have a chance to drop Ghast Tears when killed.
A Fairy Horse is possibly the rarest Horse in the game. Fairy Horses are also the most colorful Horses. They can only be obtained by breeding a Pegasus and a Unicorn together by using two Essences of Light instead of Pumpkins or Mushroom Stew under the normal breeding requirements. They both will disappear in the process of the birth. If the Unicorn or the Pegasus was wearing Mount Armor, a Chest or a Saddle, those will also be returned.Two adult White Fairy Horses can be bred together by using an Essence of Light to obtain another Fairy Horse, but the other two are lost. White Fairy Horses can be turned into different colors giving them dyes. Each color of fairy horses has their own eyes, wings and particles. The available colors are shown in this picture:
The unavailable dye colors are Brown, Gray, Light Gray, and Magenta. Note: Fairy Horses can only be dyed once. They can not be recolored.
Both Mount Armor and chests can be equipped on Fairy Horses. By giving a Fairy Horse equipped with a chest an Essence of Undead, it will become an Undead Unicorn with a chest on it. This is the only way to get a chest on an Undead Unicorn.
Horses can be ridden by giving them a Crafted Saddle or a vanilla Minecraft Saddle, and then right-clicking on it. The controls for riding a Horse can be seen below.
|Left Shift||Dismount/open Horse inventory (only works in the dev version of Mo' Creatures. You have to right-click and shift to open it).|
|Right-Click with Key||
Open Horse inventory (only for Horses with inventories)
Items Associated with Horses
The Crafted Saddle is a key item for the taming of Horses. In order to break or ride a Horse, it is necessary to equip a Horse with one (by right-clicking on it). It is possible to remove a Saddle by right-clicking on the Horse with shears.
Wheat and Bread are used to raise the chances of taming the Horse, and are used by right-clicking on the Horse. It takes more Wheat to tame a a Horse than Bread does.
Amulets can be used to store tamed special Horses. There are four types of Horse Amulets, each one can be used to capture different Horses.
Types of Amulets:
Sugar Lumps are used similarly to Wheat and Bread. Feeding Sugar Lumps to any Horse will make it easier to be tamed and grow faster.
Hay Stacks are used similarly to Wheat, Bread and Sugar Lumps: to make the taming of Horses easier.
Apples and Golden Apples
Both Apples and Golden Apples will tame a Horse instantly. They can also be used to rename tamed Horses. Doing this will use up the Apple or Golden Apple. Golden Apples can be used to breed vanilla Minecraft Horses.
A Medallion can be used to rename tamed Horses, and will remain in the user's inventory once used. They are also used to rename Horses that come out of Amulets and Fairy Horses; Apples do not work for them, however.
Right-clicking on any Horse with a Lead will get it to follow the player. It is possible to lead more than one Horse at a time. This is useful if more than one Horse is being led. When a Lead is applied, Horses can teleport towards the player if he/she is quite a distance away from the Horse being led. That means if playing on a server, it is possible to teleport them into the home and the Horse will teleport with the player. Horses may be invisible after teleport. If this happens, a solution is to disconnect and reconnect again.
A Whip can be used to speed up a Horse for a short period of time when it is being ridden. If riding a Nightmare, the whip will cause the Nightmare to leave a trail of fire. When the Horse is not being ridden, the Whip can be used to make the tamed Horse remain stationary (the Horse will lower its head), and used again to make the Horse move around once more.
Keys automatically appear in the player's inventory when a chest is applied to a Horse that is able to carry a portable inventory. They are used to open the Horse's inventory. More Keys can be crafted if the original one has been lost. Naming a Key will help when there are lots of Keys. This can be done with an anvil.
Note: As of DEV v8.0.0 for Minecraft 1.8, Keys no longer work and instead you can simply right-click on a Horse, Donkey or Mule etc. whilst sneaking (if it has a chest) to access its inventory, this also applies to other mobs that can have chests.
Pumpkins and Mushroom Stew are needed to breed normal Mo' Creatures Horses.
All four Essences are necessary for obtaining rarer types of Horses:
- Essence of Undead - Can be used to turn any tamed Horse, Zebra, or Donkey into a Zombie Horse, and then into a Skeleton Horse as time passes. It can be used to turn a Unicorn or a Pegasus into their undead variants.
- Essence of Fire - Can be used to turn any tamed Zorse into a Nightmare.
- Essence of Darkness - Can be used to turn any tamed Zorse into a Bat Horse, or a tamed Pegasus into a Dark Pegasus.
- Essence of Light - Can be used to turn any tamed Nightmare into a Unicorn, or any tamed Bat Horse into a Pegasus (by feeding the Bat Horse the Essence of Light at cloud level, around 150y). It also makes it possible to breed Unicorns and Pegasi in order to obtain a Fairy Horse.
Mount Armor can be applied to every type of Horse except for Donkeys, Mules, Zebras, Zonkeys, Zombie Horses, Skeleton Horses and Nightmares. There are four types of Mount Armor: Iron Mount Armor, Gold Mount Armor, Diamond Mount Armor and Crystal Mount Armor (this type of Armor can only be applied to special Horses).
To remove Armor off of a Horse, right-click on the Horse with Shears. This Armor is the same type of Armor that can be applied to Wyverns.
Inputting /give [username] 4146 1 [ID] will place a Sky Amulet in the player's inventory, which can be used to spawn a Horse.
Also, /give [username] 9081 1 [ID] will have the same effect.
As of 1.7.10 you can now use /give [username] MoCreatures:amuletpegasusfull 1 [ID]
Note: If the Biomes O' Plenty mod is installed with Mo' Creatures, /give [username] 4188 1 [ID] should be used instead to avoid an ID conflict.
Note: If the Morph mod is installed with Mo' Creatures, the Sky Amulets do not work, and Mo' Creatures Horses do not graze after they have been tamed.
Note: If both the Morph mod and Biomes O' Plenty mod are installed as of Minecraft 1.7.2, then replace with /give [username] MoCreatures:amuletghostfull 1 [ID]
Note: If the Carpenter's Blocks mod is installed, then replace with /give [username] MoCreatures:amuletghostfull 1 [ID]

- By having a tamed Bunny, Turtle or Bird on one's head whilst riding a Horse, the Horse will be able to jump far higher than usual. When riding any flying Horse (such as a Bat Horse), having a Bunny or other small mob on your head will make the flying mount charge forward while flying, giving it a significant speed boost.
- Jeb has worked with DrZhark to implement Horses in the vanilla game for 1.6 of Minecraft.
- DrZhark said that he's currently preserving most of Mo' Creatures' Horses and making them breed with vanilla Minecraft Horses. So now the Mo' Creatures Horses have been renamed to Wild Horses.
- Though Tier 1 Horses have been replaced by their vanilla counterparts and can no longer be found in the wild, they can still be created through breeding.
- If you shoot an arrow whilst riding a Horse, it will not damage the Horse, unlike vanilla Horses, it will go through the Horse's body as long as you're riding it, this can be useful when you're mounting a flying Horse (such as a Pegasus) and you want to shoot hostile mobs from above.
- The Crystal Mount Armor can only be applied to special types of Horses (both types of Pegasi, Ghost Horses, etc.).
- There is a glitched Horse (Grey Horse) without wings; there is also another Grey Horse with invisible wings that can fly, it's possible that it is a Pegasus with a missing texture.
- On the main page featuring a poll with the most popular and tamable mobs, Horses come second after Wyverns, with over 900 votes and counting.
- If you look through a Dark Blue Fairy Horse's wings at a Pegasus, you can't see it.
- You can't see water or Wyverns through a Flying Ghost Horse, (or Villagers too, if you have Minecraft Comes Alive).
