Wild Horses

In 1 collection by Altbert

Somewhere in the discussion threads someone was complaining about the minimal amount of horses in the game. And indeed there are just a few, Shadowmere if you're into the Dark Brotherhood, some at the stables where you can only buy one specific horse out of two or three, the horse of some noble guy crossing Skyrim for no reason (as it seems), and of course the horses of the carriage drivers.

Rev. 1 contains the following herds:
- a herd east of Fort Greymoor
- a herd north of Whiterun
- a herd in the Eastmarch Hold (south-east of Broken Limb Camp)
- a herd west of Rorikstead

Most of the horses will stay in a small area grazing, but occassionaly you may find a horse wandering around on his/her own. Each herd consists of one leading mare, one stallion and four to six other mares.

Rev. 2: All the horses are now "wild" and will flee if you come near while not sneaking, although not quite like a real herd of horses. They most of the time tend to flee in different directions. Most herds now consist of 10 to 12 horses. Also added a few new herds:
- east of Whiterun near Battle-Born Farm
- northwest of Gjukar's Monument
- north of Meeko's Shack in Hjaalmarch swamp area
- east of Loreus Farm (northwest of Shimmermist Cave)
One little fall back: the horses don't defend themselves against predators anymore (hopefully restored in a next rev.). However, they all respawn. The total amount of wild horses is now 90.

- when fleeing, all horses in a herd should follow the leading mare
- horses should be able to defend themselves against predators
- herds migrating from one place to another
- various activities: grazing, running, etc.
- taming a wild horse and then be able to ride the tamed horse
- variable running speeds (?)

No, sorry! I'm not working on this one at the moment. Too many mods and too much on my mind right now.

Ok, so forget all that, I've read other comments and see that you're working on it. Scuse my hastiness!

I don't know what is going wrong, but all the horses are being marked as enemies (red dots on the compass) but not actually a aggressive and my followers are slaughtering them! I can't get them to stop! Help?!
P.S. hope you're recovering well from your car accident!

Thank you! I'm feeling much better now, being able to use both hands again.

Thanks! Not life altering, but proper healing may take up to six months (still five months to go).

I am so sorry to hear that, I hope your injuries aren't life altering, heal well!

Thank you! I will keep this in mind, but it will have to wait for some time, being in a car accident recently and not able to use both hands for a couple of months.
