Horses of the Prairie

14th January 2013



A soft breeze stirs the long grasses. Sunlight dapples the dusty ground through the trees, their leaves red and gold. On the horizon, the rusted out hulk of an old steam train begs exploration and a snuffling sound in the grass outside the perimeter fence warrants further investigation. The only thing is, that fence is so far off. Walking there would take so long. If only… Oh, wait!

Lockwood has temporarily left the dinosaur rearing and lion-taming behind, and gone for something a little simpler, but just as exciting – Horses of the Prairie! Including mustangs and ponies, plus something truly magical for the Gift Machine – a unicorn – available to gift your friends for 256 tokens!

As a special bonus, horse and unicorn owners get free rein in the Prairie public space! Explore the landscape, collect rewards, but best of all, let your steed cut loose and canter along those dusty trails. So mount up and get riding!

  1. Super excited for this update guys!!! I already have my coins lined up to send the unicorn to my friends!!!

    • pourra tu m’envoyer aussi une licorne mon id et ben_gaara stp merci je ferai de meme

  2. Nothing in Home is going to beat RDR for horseback riding, but it’s cool to have horses available in Home. I’m psyched. The unicorn for the Gift machine is a nice touch too. I just hope the servers can handle this and it’s not a freeze-fest in the public space.

  3. How about a Pegasus that can actually fly around? I envision Jewel of the Skies flying carpet replaced with an animated Pegasus in a wondrous setting. (not a plain ol’ Prairie for a Pegasus!) Mountains, steams, waterfalls, amazing sky, ability to change time of day & weather conditions.

    • Great suggestion! We’ve had a couple of requests for a Pegasus Mount now, and it’s been duly noted :D

      We can’t promise it is possible with Home’s current memory limitations, but we’ll have a talk about it.

  4. I have also one question guys, I’m loving the Prairie and I was hoping is it going to be a personal space?

  5. I wish you could gift the items from the Gift Machine to yourself… So I can get what I want out of the machine.

    • You can send it to yourself but you would have to make another account (if you do not have a second account), add yourself and send it to yourself. It is a little more “work” but in 10 minutes or less, you will be all set.

      • But by doing that and sending the items to yourself through a second account that you own, would defeat the purpose of actually Gifting, which makes the Gift Machine utterly useless, no?

  6. Hi, could we have a black version of the unicorn with flaming red eyes and possibly steam coming out of its mouth?

  7. Hello, you should open up various game spaces for lmo owners, for racing! And more. You have lmo motorbikes on the way. Just think of the abundance of revenue you would get if people could actually take their lmo item and race it against similar lmo categories. Frenzy! Also with some unlockables and rewards for race winnings or even game currency to buy item rewards etc. Bike racing, horse racing and even an lmo catwalk zone for the girlies lol. Peace.

  8. i’ve horse but i can’t get in there. not just me,everyone dose that. what is the problem?

    • Hi frankie3,

      Sorry about this, unfortunately there is an issue with this space at the moment. We’ve found and fixed it now, though, and submitted the fix to Sony for re-publishing, so hopefully it will go live this Wednesday, but we haven’t had confirmation of this just yet – fingers crossed!

      Kind regards,
      Tim

    • Salut MAMJX,

Nous avons trouvé et corrigé maintenant, cependant, et a soumis la solution à Sony pour re-publication, alors j’espère qu’il sera mis en ligne ce mercredi, mais nous n’avons pas eu confirmation de cette juste encore – croisons les doigts!

  11. Hi,

    I’ve bought a horse and have been trying to get into the prairie for a couple days but the gates won’t let me pass… Am I doing something wrong or is there work being done on the game or something?

  12. Why are you selling horses to something that hasn’t worked for well over a week. And there is no contact phone number. Typical take our money and no service.

    • Hi Michael,

      Sorry about this issue, we did address it as soon as we discovered it and the fix is going live as early as physically possible (tomorrow).

      We don’t have a customer phone number to contact us on, but you can get in touch with us here, via Facebook, Twitter or email (contact@lockwood-studios.com), and I’ll always try to respond as promptly as I can.

      Kind regards,
      Tim

  13. Hey, love the boots that are hidden. Best I have ever seen on home, maybe make more in various colors. And maybe jeans with western belt buckles, haven’t seen that done yet, would be cool, thanks!
