Pony

A pony is represented by the letter u. Throw a pony a vegetarian treat (carrot, apple), and it will become tame. Other vegetarian food (pear, lichen corpse, kelp frond) has a chance to work, too. Pet ponies can be saddled and ridden, giving the player the speed of the pony. Horses and warhorses are especially fast.

Throwing a tripe ration (or any other non-vegetarian food) to a hostile horse will make the horse peaceful, even though the horse will not eat it (and the tripe can be safely retrieved), just as throwing vegan food at a hostile dog or cat will make it peaceful. Vegetarian food will keep ponies fed 5 times as long as players and their larger brethren 4 times as long[1], with exceptions for starving pets[2].

Ponies grow into horses and then into warhorses, the most powerful form.

A knight starts with a tame saddled pony.

While shopping with pets has certain advantages, it might be best to shut your horse out of the shop, especially in deeper levels. Horses are especially vulnerable to mimics.

Encyclopedia entryEdit

Hey! now! Come hoy now! Whither do you wander?
Up, down, near or far, here, there or yonder?
Sharp-ears, Wise-nose, Swish-tail and Bumpkin,
White-socks my little lad, and old Fatty Lumpkin!
[...]
Tom called them one by one and they climbed over the brow and
stood in a line. Then Tom bowed to the hobbits.

"Here are your ponies, now!" he said. "They've more sense (in some
ways) than you wandering hobbits have -- more sense in their noses.
For they sniff danger ahead which you walk right into; and if they
run to save themselves, then they run the right way."

[ The Fellowship of the Ring, by J.R.R. Tolkien ]

HorseEdit


Encyclopedia entryEdit

King Richard III: A horse! a horse! my kingdom for a horse!
Catesby: Withdraw, my lord; I'll help you to a horse.
King Richard III: Slave, I have set my life upon a cast,
And I will stand the hazard of the die:
I think there be six Richmonds in the field;
Five have I slain to-day instead of him.
A horse! a horse! my kingdom for a horse!

[ King Richard III, by William Shakespeare ]

WarhorseEdit

Warhorses are higher level than large dogs and large cats. They can become just high enough in level to attack shopkeepers, for whom they are rarely an adequate match. Warhorses should be kept out of shops.
