Original Mod Description:

2k Primitive Horse Breeds

New 'realistic' 2k textures for Vanilla horse mesh.

No blocky re-sized vanilla textures or normal-maps!

All 7 types of horses have separate meshes and body textures: 
Each horse breed will have different coloured eyes, bodies and manes.

Breeds Included:

Fjord Horse - Solitude
Black Fell Pony - Whiterun
Grey Fell Pony - Riften
Haflinger Horse - Markarth SSE: Pinto Instead
Exmoor Pony - Windhelm


I tried to get rid of as many seams as possible just using photo-shop, so there are still a few but they are in out of the way places, 
such as the inner back legs where you'd never look unless you're a bit kinky for horses...

* Please note, I DO NOT use ENB and have no visual effects turned on with any of the above images, just vanilla Skyrim with texture replacers.

You NEED the esp for the textures to show, since it redirects skyrim to see the new .nif files and textures. You can however rename the  textures to what your default horses use, though you will not get unique frost, or the different manes and eye colours. there is only one .esp  which affects all horses, frost included. 


Make sure you install AFTER all other horse mods and back up your game first just in-case it does any funny stuff. This mod Really shouldn't conflict with other horse mods which only affect behaviours and such. 

Known Conflicts:

Any horse mods which change the horse MESH are not directly compatible as this mod introduces new .nif copies for EACH breed of horse.
Most horse mods only use ONE .nif mesh.

Textures ONLY are compatible with other horse body changing mods that use vanilla texture maps, though to get them to work requires manual installation of ONLY the texture files, AND for them to be renamed accordingly. 

If you are using these textures with a different horse body mesh, you WILL need to edit the .nif files of your existing horse body to find the texture files correctly if you want the individual manes and eye colours. Otherwise just copy and rename the body colours, and your choice of two of the mane colours to your texture folder.

DO NOT expect the textures to show up if you replace the body meshes without re-directing the textures in nifskope.

I *WILL NOT* make any alternative versions using any horse body replacer. If you want to seek permissions and upload a new version of these textures for a different horse body go ahead! Just link back here :D


I give permission for any other modders to edit or use these textures in their mods, ONLY if they are not for profit. I will not allow any part of this mod to be sold, and ask that you notify me before you intend to use any part of this mod for your own work. Translators, feel free to translate :)

End Original Mod Description


Meshes have been updated and verified to use. ESP must be enabled for the mod to work. To be honest I have no idea how movement speed or essential horses work with this ESP as I do not use those mods. Good rule of thumb is to place non-mesh horse replacers under this one.
