There are a lot of funny things that can happen on Horse Isle. In the days to come, I’ll be drawing cartoons about some of these and also sharing funny screenshots I’ve found. When I have enough they’ll all be linked on the main Horse Isle 3 Hints page.
A recent update introduced something called an Essence Anomaly. Anyone who plays Horse Isle will know that Essence buys equipment and various account perks like the kayak, the pony cart, the chariot, the ability to sense wild horses, the sailboat, the hot air balloon and even musical instruments. You can run around all over the map […]
So… yeah. I’m working from home for the first time in my life. I’m very grateful to be able to do so, so I am most emphatically not complaining, but it’s definitely an adjustment. I decided to start working on my cartooning a bit now that I have a second monitor on my desktop. (I needed that for greater ability to do my job from my home computer. I also got a cheap graphics card so ultimately I’ll be much better off than I was.) Anyway, I have this problem where I am too much of a perfectionist with my cartooning, so I hardly ever do any, so I decided to just let it all hang out and get sloppy with it. I’m going for expressiveness over prettiness.
The below comic (now colorized) is somewhat inspired by Matt Inman’s comic about working from home, linked below.
Can anyone say…. chariot race? I may have to build one sometime, if I figure out a way to do it. Spinning spikes affixed to the wheels won’t be mandatory.
Most of you are probably familiar with the Pony Cart. The chariot is made for full sized horses and costs 10,000 Essence. Up to 2 friends can ride in it with you! Here’s what it looks like:
There is now also a Horse Cart, unlockable for 2,500 Essence, so you can roll in style with your larger horses.
Additionally, the strength requirement for the Pony Cart was recently reduced, so your little guys only need a .2 Pull Strength instead of .4. This is great, since weaker minis can now pull, and those who already could will be faster.
And now, for Jousting. For a very reasonable 1,000 Essence, you can unlock a proper lance! In-game, the lance is made of foam and will only knock a rider off a horse if they also have the lance equipped. A couple clubs have made arenas for jousting, TigerTon being one of them.
I anticipate lots of fun to be had with these new enhancements!

The last few days have seen an unprecedented coordinated effort to limit the advance of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the human-to-human transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that has cost the lives…
