Many ardent FarmVille players have been begging for the addition of Horse Stables for quite some time. Horses just take up so much space on your farm, so having a lot of them can really limit your ability to undertake some more profitable endeavors or put up some larger buildings. No matter how large a farm you get, you’re still going to run out of space eventually, so having a Horse Stable is a huge plus for players at every level.
Conserving Space, Saving Time
Just like Chicken Coops and Dairy Farms, Horse Stables can hold 20 horses. While they are pretty large buildings themselves, the stables still take up much less space than 20 horses do. Plus, the stables have the added bonus of allowing you to harvest from all of these horses at once. That can save a ton of time, especially if you still have a bunch of goats, pigs, sheep and other animals that have to be harvested from individually.
Your Horse Stable is actually free to get started – that is, you’ll find the frame in your gift box when you log into the game. Before you set it up, though, you may have to clear some space. The stable takes up about as much space as 6 plowed plots of land, so make sure you have at least that much room free before you take it out of your gift box.
Just placing the frame of the Horse Stable on your land isn’t enough, however. In order to complete the construction, you’re going to have to gather a significant number of materials. You do start out with one brick, but you’ll need 10 each of bricks, wooden boards, harnesses, horseshoes and nails to complete your stable, and there are a couple of ways that you can get your hands on these.
The preferable method for obtaining your building materials is as gifts from your FarmVille neighbors. Each day, a couple of these building materials will be available as free gifts that you can send to your neighbors and that they can send to you. The specific items listed here will change from time to time, so it’ll be important to get what you need when it’s available.
If you really want to give yourself the best chance of getting all of your building materials as gifts, you may want to post an announcement on your wall asking your friends for specific items. As long as you have a significant number of neighbors, though, you shouldn’t have too much trouble gathering up the items you need. Also, whatever items you don’t manage to collect as gifts, you can purchase from the market for 1 Farm Cash each.
Announcing Your Construction
When you set up your stable, you’ll have the opportunity to post an announcement on your wall letting your friends know what you’re up to and giving them the option of lending a hand. If they take you up on your offer, they’ll receive 100 coins, but there’s really no benefit to you. It’s certainly the neighborly thing to do, though, and your neighbors will appreciate the opportunity to pick up the bonus.
