It’s Raining Horses in Second Life

Today’s location seemed appropriate given overnight developments in my virtual life. Timber Wilds↑ is a home for feral animal roleplay↑.

When I think of ferals I think of dogs or cats. Domesticated animals who have, for one reason or another, wound up living on the streets or in the bush without owners. I suppose you could have feral budgies or hamsters, but I get to deal with wannabe feral horses.

I have quite a few breedable horses. I tell people I don’t know how many – which is true. If I count them I have to admit I have a problem. There are more than 3 dozen though – that I will admit. Or at least there were.

I woke up this morning to a series of offlines telling me that my horses were being returned from parcels up to two sims away from my home. I counted 18 before I logged on. Another 6 arrived when I landed inworld.

When I started pulling them out of the Lost & Found it got a little strange. Some of them were upside down. Some of them rezzed high in the air and started falling. If you think raining frogs or fish is freaky – try having large equines drop from the sky.

While I was taking these photos, more “object returned” messages were arriving. As I’ve never counted them, I’m not certain how many more I should be looking for.

I also have a cat and a dog. The cat was there, but walking at a 45 degree angle (maybe they all got drunk overnight). The dog, however, is missing. She doesn’t actually belong to me – her owner is my absent son. He logs on periodically using one of his alts, but only when I’m not there. Maybe he’ll show up and return her home – she’s going to be hungry soon.

I have to go back and finish my work, but I’m going to stay inside while I do. Two tons of falling horse can cause serious injury.

  2. Ah, horses. I’d love a good rideable horse but unfortunately the only horses I ever owned, died in inventory (I do not own land). They rezzed lying down, with hovertext saying “This horse is DEAD.” I deleted them and never went looking for horses again, it was a bit too discomforting.

  4. I’m a horse junkie these days too, boy I spend too much on alfalfa and salt licks. Is there a twelve step program for this? :)

  5. I made a small fortune on bunnies but got attached. I lost money on Meeroos and got attached again. Since I turned the latter into MeePets I can get them back for just a little money. Tried Booshies for a couple days. Got tired of having to feed them. I’ll stick to virtual virtual pets and animal avatars. Maybe I’ll take my eagle avie to Timber Wilds.

  7. Given the horsemeat scandal that is now rocking all of Europe, your post’s text sounds strangely fitting…

        If you do, I’m sure we can reach an agreement on the use of the umm … “latin”. My rates would be reasonable :).
