My addiction only increased when I discovered the excellent Mo'Creatures mod, an add-on that introduces a variety of creatures ranging from bunnies to songbirds to wolves to sharks. And, oh, yes, horses. Horses you can tame and ride. My latent horse-crazy tendencies were spurred and I had to have a horse to ride around Minecraft. You need all sorts of stuff to tame a horse, like a saddle, and lots of food bribes, but eventually I had tamed my very own horse, a blocky black horse that I named Squares.
|Squares the Horse. Interests: Hay, sugar cubes, bread, bouncing around madly, neighing. Dislikes: bears, lions, wolves, boars, and trees.|
So when I discovered there were such things as flying horses, I knew immediately that I had to have one. Pegasus (pegasuses? pegasi?) are rare, though, and in all my time hanging around my base I've never encountered one. I am tired of waiting around for one to flutter to my doorstep, which means it's time for an Adventure.
Squares and I will travel north together (the only direction that's not forest or ocean) until we find a pegasus, and then I will fly back on the pegasus and Squares will do, well, whatever he wants. I'm playing on easy because frankly it's going to be tricky enough steering this madly careening barge of a horse around and keeping him (and me) safe from predators, and I'm barely experienced enough with Minecraft to keep myself out of harm's way.

I think I'm ready.
Next: Turns out I wasn't ready yet.
