About this mod

31 new and improved horse replacements for Content Patcher. Also includes skins for Adopt 'n Skin.

Permissions and credits

- 31 horse skins to choose from
- Optional saddle overlay with 20 colors to choose from
- Replacement of the horse head icon in the menu (changes based on your skin choice)

1. Install the latest version of SMAPI.
2. Install the latest version of Content Patcher.
3. Extract into your \Stardew Valley\Mods\ folder.
4. Run the game through SMAPI to generate a config.json, then close.
5. Open the config.json with a program like Notepad and use the images in the References folder to change your horse to the texture name you prefer! You can also enable a saddle overlay and choose the color for it.
6. Run the game using SMAPI!

To uninstall, just delete the folder you put in your Mods directory.

Optional: I have also included an optional folder of skins for use with the Adopt 'n Skin or Multiplayer Horse Reskin mods! These will let you use more variants of horses. Note that if you use A&S, you should only use the skins and not the main download.

To use, extract the skins folder into Adopt 'n Skin or Multiplayer Horse Reskin's assets folder and merge it. I have included all skins shown here; simply delete the ones you don't want to use! They are named Horse_1 through Horse_31, so if you already have skins in your folder you want to keep, you will need to do some renaming.

          - Added horse heads to the Cursors tilesheet so your horse shows up in the menu. (Optional, enabled by default)

          - (Re-uploaded to fix use of the grey saddle)
