    i see your prices are still pretty unreasonable. 300 gold for a stone or dirt path? and your timing. three hours or more to make a horse treat?

    Wait, collecting composts uses energy now? Between that and and getting rid of all the weeds/trees, I haven't actually gotten to touch any of my horses yet today...and the weeds still aren't all gone. I really hope this isn't a permanent thing... For new players, composts are one of the ONLY reliable sources of income. Now they're going to have to spend all of their energy just to make enough money to play (and those of us who already have multiple composts will go through energy even faster...I have 7, that's 7 energy I need, EVERY 15 minutes).

    And how about the people who have even more composts?! It's ridicuous to take energy away for that. I have ten horses, from which nine are still foals because I don't have enough energy to to raise and train them. And then all te horses we don't like have to be aged up to 70+ if you're on a high breeding mastery. I'm lucky if I can age my horse once a day, it's no fun anymore at all. I loved the game and the updates first showed that you really listened to use and thought about what we suggested, but now..

    Collecting composts uses energy now

    I'm very upset with the new change of having to use energy just to collect my compost earnings! I have 12, but I know some friends who have 18 or more. I totally agree with Kholran that by the time we collect our compost piles and remove weeds and trees, collect our cookies and herb garden, and collect our earnings from our guest house- there is no energy remaining to work, train, and age our horses. This was a horrible change to the game and I, like everyone else, hope you will change it back as soon as possible. And, by the way: the friends names that have disappeared from the ranches/friends scroll at the bottom of the page still have not reappeared nor can I add them back- they're just gone. When will this be taken care of? Please go back to the way things were on the compost collections. Also, 50 FB points is alot for deeds. Can't you make it optional to also be able to use Horse Bucks (even if the amount is very costly) since we all can't afford to pay cash to get the deeds to expand. Please consider this. thanks

    That's it, i quit, collecting from the compost requires energy, thanks for screwing up the only way to actually make any money for this game

    I agree with everyone else here. that is stupid we have to lose more energy to collect our compost piles now! I don't know how you think we can make money to add to our farms if we have to choose between bring up out horses, collecting carrots and apples, or collecting out compost piles. Also agree that the bakery is to slow! We can only hold 5 of each, if you have 5 or more horse's its impossible to get enough cookies fast enough with having to give them for ever training time. I also noticed another thing! I am NOT getting deeds now for visiting and working on my friends farms. It aid,"oops, your inventory is full, so i went and checked it, said I have 3 deeds of 20?? What is with that???

    Wow - some fantastic updates - thanks!

    But I agree the compost needing energy to collect is pretty awful. I may just stop playing until this is fixed as I'm not able to do anything with my horses at the moment anyway.

    I like most of the changes...all except one! I mentioned this in another post...we should NOT have to use energy to collect carrots, apples, herbs, bakeries, guest houses or compost heaps!!!!! Energy does not regenerate fast enough for the game to work smoothly if we are using all of our energy just for maintenance! Most of us only get to play once a day and if we only have 28 energy points, that is used in removing all the weeds and trees from the farm. Not to mention collecting all of the other things! At this point, most of us don't even get to touch our horses!!! Please do yourselves a favor and change it back.

    You don't get deeds for visiting, I'm afraid, you get IOUs - which are only used (as far as I can tell) to build composters, which are now totally useless because of this stupid change that means you have to use energy to collect from them.

    For heaven's sake, I'm at level 30 (the highest level) and have a statue-thingy, so I have a max of 34 energy to start with - but first time through, I have more weeds and trees to clear than I can do with that much energy (why do they think there should be so many weeds etc growing?! surely half a dozen between logging-ins would be plenty?!); so I go visiting friends to get more, and second time through now I have to use it to collect from my composters - that's two complete lots of energy and I haven't so much as touched a horse yet! Yet if I go away to let the energy build up again - when I come back I have tons of weeds and full composters again. How can we win?!

    I'm sorry, but I really don't think the developers of this game have the faintest idea what they're doing! (1) Everything requires a friend to staff it - every herb garden, building, orchard, carrot field and EVERY SINGLE HORSE BOX, but nobody can hold more than one job - just how many game-playing friends do they think we have?! (2) the prices are totally unrealistically high (300 coins for one bit of path or fence, 1000s for almost everything else) with no proper way of earning a decent income, (3) everything you do costs more than you gain from it - even training and showing the horses requires 3 energy and several treats (at ~100 horsebucks each) per go, with rewards being ~40 horsebucks if you're lucky; and now (4) the SINGLE possible way to earn income costs you all your energy to gain it, thereby leaving you unable to play anyway!

    Come on, Devs, get yourselves sorted! Are you TRYING to drive away all possible players?!
