    Looking for an old school Faction Guard Horse. This is the one the guards rode that you used to be able to dismount and tame . No longer obtainable. I am NOT looking for the Faction War Horse that you buy with Silver.

    Please post or msg me on here. Thanks.

    Its just called "Black Horse" now, if you call it Faction Horse you will cause confusion. Since Faction Horses are now PP also. People also Consider VVV mounts Faction mounts, idk why, and they are Char specific.

    Long mane**/Dark, short looks like a Mohawk sort of. The variance doesn't seem to matter to most people. Some however its a big deal, I guess maybe they might be horse people? people who like/know horses? as far as I would think, long manes typically show elegance, short manes are more practical (war/work horse?) ive seen horses with manes down to their chest, but as I can remember they were typically show horses, like circus horses for example, I don't remember any farm/work horses with manes that passed their neck (like the long manes in UO / which is kind of like a natural real mane?), MOST of them seemed to be cut short, but not really short like the short manes in UO, unless they were track/race horses.. (maybe in real life, the extra length is for weather shelter? or a lack of proper care? IM rly not sure, Ive never seen any track/race horses with long manes, maybe because they snag in the straps/reins? who the hell knows. IN UO** these things don't matter. In UO the hue of the mount is pretty much all the attraction. like I said, unless your a horse person.

    It's mostly due to the lighter horse looking now like the anniversary horse. I'll take photos of all the different types. I think I have multiples of each, if so- I'll sell you one.

    so there is no difference between these and a regular horse besides hue? a vvv horse would have higher hp's and everything right - just dont have to worry about spending points on courage or disappearing on you

    Correct. It's like a normal horse but black.

    I think after googling a photo of the "true black", I would rather wait for one of those.
