|A colt is an intact male horse under 5 years old. A stallion is an intact male horse who is 5 years or older. Stallions may also be referred to as "Studs".
|A filly is a female horse under 5 years old. A mare is a female horse who is 5 years or older. Retired mares may also be referred to as "Broodmares".
|A gelding is a male horse who has been castrated and is unable to produce offspring. A gelding can be any age; however, on FFH, retired geldings may sometimes be referred to as "Buddies".
Horse Trader horses can be found at the Horse Trader! They can be Thoroughbreds, Stock breeds, or Standardbreds. They vary in quality and color and are available in both genders. They cost FFH cash, varying upon your rank.
You can also purchase retired geldings from the Horse Trader once you reach Novice rank. These are available as Thoroughbreds, Quarter Horses, Standardbreds, and Goldbloods, and you can select from four ranges for their possible Potential. These geldings will be 6 years old and can come in any of the typical Horse Trader colors. They cost FFH cash, varying upon your rank.
Import Horses are, in essence, a tier above Horse Trader horses. They are found above the Horse Trader horses at the Import Horse link. They are of a higher quality than most Horse Trader buys, with their genetic and stat quality on par with Goldblood horses but with Thoroughbred, Stock or Standardbred lineage.
You will also be able to choose a bloodline range for your Import horse. You will set a range of preferences for what you are looking to find, and will be given three random Imports based on your preferences for a small "holding" fee. You may get lucky on your search and could potentially find a horse with rare colors and/or markings!
Each import will cost either $5,000,000, 500 PC, or 5 breeding passes as a deposit then additional PC to buy should one suit your needs!
One special type of horse, which can be any breed, are called Select Sale (SS) horses. While these are still considered the base breed that they are assigned, they come with a special symbol designating their SS lineage. Select Sale horses and descendants of Select Sale horses will show a percentage underneath their pedigree of which indicates how much Select Sale is in their bloodlines.
These are purchased through auctions known as Select Sales which happen occasionally during a RL year. These horses come with guarantees for higher genetic and producer quality than a horse you may purchase at the Horse Trader, making them more valuable as a general rule. They can also be rare colors or have rare markings.
There are two "unique" types of horses on FFH. Project Six horses, or P6 horses, are horses who had their potential intentionally put at the lowest it can be - 6. These horses are part of a contest regarding racing points.
Extreme Mare Makeover, or EMM horses, are mares of any breed, that had their genes and producing quality intentionally set to Poor for a breeding challenge. EMM can be purchased at the Horse Trader for the added challenge of breeding such a poor mare!
|Yearlings are "baby" horses. Horses on FFH skip their weanling (0 years) year and are born as yearlings (1 year). They'll remain yearlings until they turn 2 years old in the January following their birth. Yearlings cannot race or breed and only need to be fed and exercised each month. They also have limited genetics shown, and hide many traits and markings which they will reveal when they age to 2 years old.
|Horses in training are also known as "racing" horses. These horses are anything from 2 years old up until they turn 11 years old. They will be the primary focus for most players on FFH. Training horses need to be fed and trained every month and will most likely also enter races regularly throughout the year. They cannot be bred while still in training.
|Bloodstock are also known as "retired" horses. These are horses that have been retired from racing and are now used for breeding (if a mare or stallion) purposes. Retired geldings may also be used as workout buddies for your racing horses. Horses can retire so long as they are 3 years old or older (though other restrictions apply) and may continue breeding until they reach their foal limit or turn 25 years old. Buddies may be used for buddy workouts until they turn 16 and as yearling buddies until they turn 20.
|Pensioned horses are horses that can no longer race or breed. Their ages will vary depending upon what age a horse was retired from racing and how long or how often they were bred (or used as a workout buddy). Pensioned horses do not use stall space, but are still eligible for certain achievements and/or awards.
