Vale Events
Water Balloon Fight
The Balloon Fight runs from June through the end of August. During this time you can visit the Vale to grab water balloons and then splash your friends with them. (You can do this by visiting their page and clicking the water balloon if they haven't recently been hit.) Balloons can drop an assortment of goodies, so be sure to join in on the fun!
Snowball Fight
The Snowball Fight works much like the summer event except it runs during the winter, from December through the end of February. During this time you can visit the Vale to grab snowballs, which you can throw at other players by clicking the snowball on their pages. Snowballs can drop a wide range of trinkets and treats, so don't be shy about getting involved.
Farm Plots
Farm Plots are harvestable at the start of June, August, and October. Players who have purchased greenhouses can harvest during the winter months of February, April, and December. Business Skill 10 is required to be able to create farm plots. While this isn't a community driven event, it's still a nice way to make use of farm plots by selling the assortment of items you receive by harvesting or using the items to help your stable get ahead!
Fields of Arcane
Fields of Arcane are harvestable once per FFH month for a random amount of golden apples, which can then be used in the Golden Apple Orchard. Fields of Arcane are planted using Arcane Apples, and once planted, a tree will have enough mana reserves to sustain it for 3 FFH years. After 3 years, it will wither away and a new tree must be planted if you wish to harvest again.
Springo
Springo is FFH's very own version of the classic game Bingo. You are awarded money for how well you fill out the board, up to $100,000 per day. If you can get a full board, or "blackout", you are awarded with a raffle ticket for the weekly item raffle. You can earn up to one blackout raffle ticket per day. This is a fun daily activity you can use to earn some easy money and potentially some fun items!
Rusty Recycler
Rusty Recycler can be fed one item (including rubbish, tack, feed, and pro items) every 15 minutes up to 24 times per day. The more rare the item fed, the more points are added to the meters. Rusty Recycler can award pro coins randomly as well as Rumpled Packages, which contain one of a wide variety of items. You also have a chance to earn a jackpot ticket once the jackpot meter hits 100% full, which has a variety of fun rewards.

Sales
Pro Shop Sales
Pro Shop sales are events where a random assortment of rarer items (not usually found in Pro Shop) are stocked in the Pro Shop for a period time - usually 1-2 weeks. During these sales, PC is also usually sold at a discounted rate. There are usually 3-4 'big' sales a year, though smaller sales sometimes crop up between.

New Year's - January
Spring Fling - April
Summer Sizzler - July
Black Friday - November
Select Sales
Select Sales are auctions of special, high quality horses. These horses usually come with minimum genetic guarantees (never any F genes and few G) as well as an assortment of rare colors and/or markings you may not be able to obtain anywhere else (such as Sooty, Silver, and Champagne). These may be ran live, in Discord, or silent, in the Auction House. Select Sales are typically held randomly throughout the year and have no set date or time of year, but there will be relevant announcements and news of when there will be upcoming Select Sales/Auctions so be sure to keep your eye out!
Select Raffle
Raffles are composed of horses that meet the same minimum producer quality guarantees as Select Sales along with similar levels of genetic quality. Raffles may include any breeds and often have horses with rare colors and/or markings. Although they are usually comprised mostly of fillies, there are occasionally colts mixed in or even colt-dedicated sections. Unlike regular Select Sales, you don't know which horse you get until the tickets are drawn, and every ticket bought is a winner. The mystery is definitely part of the fun!

As a reminder, you should not be reloading other players' 2 year olds. If they aren't reloaded yet, it's probably because the owner hasn't looked at them yet - don't ruin their surprise.
