If you thought breeding horses was as easy as feeding them wheat, you might be wrong. Want to know how to breed horses in Minecraft? This article will tell you all about breeding horses in Minecraft.
Horses are one of the most useful mobs in the game. If you want to travel long distances early in the game, taming a horse is the best idea. Since they can move faster and jump higher than the player, using it for transportation saves a lot of time. Health points for the horse can range from 15 to 30. Horses can be seen spawning in plains biome and savanna biomes. Players can also find horses in stables or pens that generate in villages.
Breeding two horses can be useful in the following scenario – If you have a horse that runs fast and a horse that jumps 5 blocks, you can have both of those qualities in a single horse. Breeding them will give you a pony with both of those positive abilities combined. Hence, let’s go through the steps to breed horses in Minecraft.
How to breed horses in Minecraft:
1) To breed two horses you will first have to tame them. To tame a horse in Minecraft, you have to repeatedly mount it, until you can see ‘Heart-shaped’ particles. Once, you see these particles, the horse will be tamed and will stop kicking you off its back.
2) You can use either a golden carrot or a regular golden apple to breed two horses. Just right-click your horses while holding a ‘golden carrot’ or a ‘golden apple’ to feed it to them. This will trigger the mobs to breed and in a few seconds, you will have a pony with the qualities of both of its parents.
3) Wait for the pony to grow or feed it wheat. Once, it has grown to adult size, tame it. Put on a saddle and you should be good to go.
Here’s a fact! – Horses can also be bred using an ‘Enchanted golden apple’. The only problem with that is, there is a limited amount of those scattered around in your Minecraft world. Hence, it may not be a smart idea to feed the only ones you have to your horse!
