I'm sure Solar Bear is needed for breeding it.

Holy moly!
Just earlier today in the Solar Bear thread I was guessing the Solar Bear might be needed for breeding a new Treasure animal, and there it is: a new Treasure animal, and what a beauty!
I bet ya one half of the formula is the Solar Bear and I guess the other half to be the Pyro Pony. That at least is the only "Pony" I can think of that anyone can have (as opposed to e.g. the Peony Pony and the Matripony).
To those who've got the Solar Bear already: I'd try the formula of Solar Bear + Pyro Pony. :P

I just took a look at your forest for checking the quickest route to get there. For me that seems to take 4 expansions, as I have already expanded to the first four plots of the lower purple shelf, I can directly move to the left (i.e. the middle purple shelf) and from there directly go up to the upper left purple shelf, requiring an additional 3 expansions to reach the Solar Bear.
Darn, at the rate I can make expansions, without speeding breedings for bombs that will take around 3+ weeks still... It would be great if there were some new feature that would allow us to win realm runes. Actually, that's one of the things I *VERY* much like about the Storybooks: the 15 realm runes prize! That's soo welcome!

Well then, a new gem hybrid last week, the storybook, Limited Lambi, the hellhounds trio, the limited rereleased Harvest Hedgehog, a tournament, Solar Bear expansions, Spin to Win, and on Friday a new Treasure animal. I see TL is really 'slowing matters down' as several players have requested. :D
They seem to be on full overdrive, but well, luckily enough a lot of these things can be combined so it's not mutually exclusive stuff. I'll definitely try to cope with all of the things they're throwing at us. It does make it more difficult to follow some of my own agendas, like the plan I had to first clear all of the upper blue plots now and hatch away all animals that I have in storage... I *do* want to be in the game for trying for that Treasure beauty, so when the novelty of gem breeding wears off, it would be great to have shots at that (though if the formula really is the Solar Bear + the Pyro Pony, we'd again get to "enjoy" all of the earth-fire fails all over again).
Exciting times in the forest!!!

I'm thinking the sale prize will be around 600 gems. I think that was the prize Money Badger was introduced for (I wasn't playing then yet but I read it somewhere) and they just released a new Treasure dragon on DS on sale for 600.

The funny thing about Treasure animals is that those are the only ones that actually have a guaranteed "return of investment". Suppose the sale cost is 600 gems and the animal gives a gem every 12 hours, then the ROI time is 300 days. :P
As I wrote in a different thread, paradoxically enough, I'm in a way actually hoping a bit that the animal is a real 'high roller': giving many gems and that the price will be considerably higher, just so I'm not tempted to buy one. I really DO want to breed such animals, and as I already have one Treasure animal, I don't "need it as much as the gem element" that I bought my way into last week.
We'll see what Friday brings: I see in just about ALL other S8 games that there are far better sales (like 90% off sales) than we tend to get in FFS. Should this new Treasure animal have a very low sale price on the one hand (like e.g. 200 gems or so, like the Dragonfly recently had) and should the breeding formula really be earth-fire (as we all fear), then it will become attractive to buy one (or two even). :P

But... I'm guessing the sale price (if any) will not be anywhere near the 200 mark, so in all likelihood I'll not buy it. :)
Besides... FFS is mainly a "breeding game" so I don't really want to become a regular animal buyer.

With the kind of breeding luck I am having, I don't think it is going to be very easy for me to breed this one too.
I don't have any treasure animals as my attempts at money badger have added to the armordillo army.. And that is the only one I can breed right now as I do not have the gold lion for the golden retriever and ocean owl for the treasure toucan.
So if the price is attractive , I will be very very tempted.
But for now I will have to wait and watch

I have been doing some thinking about what the breeding combination would be for the Prize Pony. In all three current Treasure animals, three elements are involved. That provides the maximum number of failure combinations without actually letting you breed a Crystal Unicorn. I believe, this is by design and will be true for all future Treasure animals.

It seems as if one of the two animals needed for the Prize Pony will be the Solar Bear. There doesn’t seem to be any other reason to provide an animal with an existing element combination as part of the expansions. The Treasure Toucan uses two breedable animals, but it was the first Treasure animal and I think S8 decided not to continue with that idea. The Terrorier for the Golden Retriever was a battleground prize and the Hareon for the Money Badger was provided as part of an expansion.

In looking at the coloring of the Prize Pony, I see a bit of Green. This leads me to believe that one of the elements will be Nature. So if the Solar Bear is one of the parents, then the other parent should be either an Earth/Nature or Nature/Fire combination. Since Nature/Fire was used for the Treasure Toucan, I would hope that it would be Earth/Nature. If S8 follows the pattern of the Money Badger, then the other parent will be the common animal which is the Planther.

So that is my guess for now. The parents of the Prize Pony will be the Solar Bear and Planther. We will have to see what information the hints provide us. We should know more in a little over a day.

Is this animal really only available for 1 week?
If so, my only chance at getting it is buying it as I need 4 expansions for getting to the solar bear and then it would still need to evolve, make breedings with ultra rare odds etc.
Am I really understanding it correctly that the animal is limited or just the sale???
I would be really disappointed if it's limited, never to return again unless in a value pack!!
In that case I'd better use my excess gems from the Quetzalcoatl acquisition and be done with it. After that I wouldn't have a whole lot of gems left, so further major acquisitions would then be out of the question...

I would be very, very surprised if this was a limited animal only available for a week. Most players are nowhere near the Solar Bear expansion, so my guess is that it's on sale for a week, or if there's a gem reward for breeding it, that may be limited time as well. None of the other gem hybrids are limited. I'm not home to check my game unfortunately, so does it say "limited time" or "limited" in the shop on the animal's picture? That's where it's usually indicated if you have a limited time to breed it.

If the Solar Bear is one of the parents, I don't think it can be limited to a week because most players won't even get the Solar Bear for a long time.

I don't need a bunch of jealousy posts about this, thank you very much. If you can't say something nice, please don't say anything at all.

S8, Can you do something about the habitat limit on this? It is beautiful, but what do you expect from me? I am willing to buy it, but you need to let me have a place to put it. Please!

I have a really hard time believing that it will be limited to 1 week too, but the shop mentions "limited time" on the big sale offer at the top of the shop and then if you click on the animal it says "limited time" in blue over the animal too. I don't want to take any chances here. Breeding it is impossible for me in 1 week time unless it doesn't require the Solar Bear, which I doubt.
So, the only options would be to throw a humongous amount of gems at speeding so many breedings and hatchings that 217 more runes are obtained (as I'm currently at 63 runes I would need that amount to make 4 expansions), then the Solar Bear would need to be raised to level 4 at least and then on top of that we'd need to breed with ultra rare odds. I got my retriever after an estimated 50+ attempts (though I didn't keep track).
Buying it would come down to 600 gems, 5 of which are immediately reimbursed by getting the 5 gem reward. Much more attractive. And, as mentioned earlier, Treasure animals are the only ones that actively give you gems, so each day they "become cheaper".
Maybe the "limited time" is a mistake from TL (such has happened before), or maybe it is limited but then limited for a far longer time than 1 week (which is the length of the sale period, I suspect). Or... Perhaps it goes like some of the trio habitats previously where first they were limited and then some time after disappearing they were added permanently to the shop. Or... Perhaps TL made this some "special edition extra Treasure animal", only available to the early birds with the Solar Bear and figuring out the right breeding combo, and to those who simply buy the animal.
I don't feel like taking my chances on it. In light of the animal returning gems I think I'll play it on safe and buy one. If it then continues to be breedable later or now for a longer time, I can still breed for a second one...
Darn, I don't like this "limited twist" to it. Very confusing and outright impossible to achieve for me within a week at least. That's highly unexpected....

The " limited time" clause actually makes it very confusing. And if it is only for a week then I am with you in the buying option. I do not have any treasure animals so that option is more and more attractive.
And after the 3 disastrous weeks of breeding for the trio. There is no way I am going to be putting myself through this .
If solar bear is one of the parents then no way am I going to be able to make it as I need to expand atleast six plots to reach there . I am at 50 runes cap, but that will increase with every expansion.

Ok, the earning rate is super important here! If it's only one gem a day, I don't think it's worth buying, but three gems a day is a good deal in the long run. This is getting very confusing!

I don't have it yet, but this is its description:

Doesn't make much sense for Prize Pony to have the earnings of a Treasure Toucan, especially since Money Badger earns 1 every 12 hours at epic level. You'd think the Prize Pony would at least earn as much as the Money Badger.

I would also like clarification on the earning rate. I have 600 gems sitting on both my accounts waiting to buy one of these but if it only earns 3 gems every 3 days (like the description in the game's album says) I'm passing. It would take over 600 days to pay for itself at that rate.

However, if it actually *is* 3 gems a day (like the splash-screen claims) I would buy one.

ogreve
09-25-15, 12:57 PM
I agree that in all likelihood ONLY the sale (and gem goal) will be limited to 1 week.

The earning rates are really confusing; they are "listed" in three places, and each of them kinda differs:

1) The splash screen says "GET UP TO THREE GEMS A DAY!" And it shows three gems next to it.

2) Clicking on the "information" small "i" says: "Earns: 1 Gem(s) / 3days".

3) The album says:
Lv. 4: 2 gems /3days
Lv. 10: 2 gems /3days
Lv. 15: 3 gems /3days

Now, which one is the correct one?!
I'm really, really, really hoping that the splash screen is right, and that indeed it does give 3 gems per day at epic level.
But.... the gem cost at full retail is slightly lower than that of the Money Badger, so chances are it gives fewer or the same amount of gems as the Money Badger does. It's MUCH more expensive than the Treasure Toucan and it's considerable more expensive than the Golden Retriever. It's odd that it would give the same amount as the Treasure Toucan does...

I'm guessing this is what it earns at level 1. Most animals are advertised that way. If that is the case it can be consistent with the album. Sadly, signs point to the splash screen being wrong imho.

"Winners will draw out the Prize Pony!"

Hmm, Swan Prince + Wild Wondercat you mean....? But... The latter one is not breedable, and those who don't have it wouldn't be able to go for it.

I strongly suspect the Solar Bear to be one of the ingredients, as there's "nothing special" about it otherwise, whereas all of the animals that can be expanded to have some special feature. Other candidates that I suspect would be:
-The Pyro Pony, obviously (though not necessarily). As the other three treasure animals clearly have strong features that make them resemble their parents, or at least one of them, and the Prize Pony sure doesn't look like the Solar Bear.
-The Gold Lion, as the Prize Pony's description says "...this golden beauty...".

In a way I have doubts about both of them though, as the Gold Lion is already used for the Golden Retriever (but together with the Solar Bear it would constitute a 3-element breeding) and the Pyro Pony would result in a 2-element only breeding....

But, to return to the "limited" matter. I still think that either TL flagged it incorrectly, or it really IS limited (even if only for a while). Just compare the shops listing for it against that of last week's Quartz Quetzalcoatl sale. If TL messed up the 'limited' part, they certainly did so very consistently...

I doubt most people have had the time or resources to reach the Solar Bear Yet. The Wild Wondercat is not breedable.

Usually, by this time someone would have bred whatever special animal this is. And posted about it. It appears something has gone wrong with this one. I can guarantee that the players of this game have not suddenly gone stupid. If there was something to figure out, there are those (not me) who are more than capable of doing so. It is disturbing that this has not been bred by players.

I think S8 has goofed on this one on several levels. First, those of us who have reached the limit of Treasure habitats can't even buy this animal. Second, they posted conflicting descriptions of how much it earns. Third, if they are speaking of the winning animals from the Storybooks, one is not breedable. Forth, no one has bred this animal. Fifth, there is confusion about if the "Limited" applies to the sale or the animal itself.

Most importantly, S8 is silent about the whole thing. This has never been a good sign.

OMG, I want this pony!! I've been raising gems for months for a gem producing animal! (i've been trying to breed one for months, too, but I never succeed). I have more than 700 by now (I don't spend on anything!), so I will definitely go shopping now..:))
I know it's much nicer to breed an animal than to buy it, but it's a must! Hope that many of you who wish to have a gem producing animal can buy it, or breed it!!!
(Anyway does solar bear contain a new element?)

I noticed that "goal title" too.
I don't know of any other animals in FFS that wear crowns other than..... the two swans! The third one could be the one on the Prize Pony's head.
Breeding the two swans together does constitute a 3-element breeding and it would fit with the "winners" remark, but.... the major issue with it would be that these animals are no longer obtainable, and I don't think that TL would be so cruel as to require a recipe that not too many people have.

Well, I'm going to throw out some theories for the parents...

If you look at the parents of other treasure animals you have a flying animal for Treasure Toucan (Ocean Owl), a dog animal for Golden Retriever (Terrorier) and a weasel-looking animal for Money Badger (Armordillo).

Based on this I would guess that at least one of the parents would be a pony-type animal.

I think both parents will be permanent animals; either obtained through breeding or through the Battlegrounds. Maybe the reference to 'winners' refers to one (or both) parents being Battlegrounds prizes?

I'm thinking *possibly* Zapra, Plantlers, Charger, Sea Horse or Aurora Pegasus may be in the mix?
... thoughts?

I'm thinking it's the two animals won from the Spin to win aka Fallmingo and Hummingburn. It constitutes a 3 element breeding as well

That again would be limiting the breeding options to those who won these animals.. And would exclude a majority of players. I don't think S8 would be that cruel as to not make this available to all its players. It would be a major marketing blunder . A virtual harakiri .
I mean on the steps of the grueling breeding for the trio.. If this were to be true, they would lose out on many a loyal player too.

Wow that is a surprise. First Limited Ultra Rare and a Treasure animal using parents with 4 different elements. It would be nice to breed for the Prize Pony and a Crystal Unicorn at the same time but these are two of the dozen non ultra rare animals that I don't have. They sure know how to pick them.

Thank you for the clarification, but S8 really needs to change the text for it on the pop-up. It states "3 gems a day", not 3 gems every 3 days. It's incredibly misleading.

Anyway, I'll be passing on buying this one like I was planning. The earning rate is disappointing and there is a limit to how many Treasure Trove habitats we can have (6). I'll still try using 2 unicorns (I don't have the Fennec Shox) and see what happens though.

Good luck to everyone trying for this one!

I've got one question actually: can you tell us when the sale of the Prize Pony ends? Will that be on Tuesday, or on Friday (or a different day)?
I would like to breed it, but I wouldn't want to just miss out on it like happened with the Nightmare sale, because the sale is ended earlier than expected...
Thanks in advance!

09-25-15, 03:49 PM
I'm going for this!
I'll first try it, giving it "my best shot", being the epic Sea Horse and my level 10 Fennec Shox. Later I may alternate somewhat with the level 7 Sea Horse and/or the level 6 Fennec Shox duplicates. :P

And... in the meantime I can work on something else: I wanted to find a prolonged gap to raise the Quartz Quetzalcoatl to epic level. That will then happen during the coming 4 days. The Wild Wondercat is currently undergoing its epic evolution (15:32 hours to go still) and right after that, the Quartz will be sent into the flower.
I'm also about to make an expansion. I'll now have to think hard about where to put it. I had wanted to make it on the upper blue plots, but if I'm going to buy a Treasure Trove, I'd like to have that next to my den, which means I'll sell the small nature habitat there, which means that the inhabitants must be moved around...
Now that we don't directly need to go for the Solar Bear I'm not sure if I'm going that way or not just yet...

I'll list the breeding results here:

#01: Sea Horse (15) + Fennec Shox (10) = Fairy Ferret [sped away]
#02: Sea Horse (15) + Fennec Shox (10) = Skyger
#03: Sea Horse (15) + Fennec Shox (10) = Fairy Ferret
#04: Sea Horse (15) + Fennec Shox (10) = Daredevil
#05: Sea Horse (15) + Fennec Shox (10) = Conducktor
#06: Sea Horse (15) + Fennec Shox (10) = Turtisle
#07: Sea Horse (7) + Fennec Shox (6) = Catypuss
#08: Sea Horse (7) + Fennec Shox (6) = Aquatter
#09: Sea Horse (7) + Fennec Shox (6) = Thunderhawk
#10: Sea Horse (15) + Fennec Shox (10) = Skyger
#11: Sea Horse (8) + Fennec Shox (8) = Fireglider
#12: Sea Horse (8) + Fennec Shox (8) = Fireglider
#13: Sea Horse (8) + Fennec Shox (8) = Fairy Ferret
#14: Sea Horse (8) + Fennec Shox (8) = Conducktor
#15: Sea Horse (8) + Fennec Shox (8) = Beever
#16: Sea Horse (8) + Fennec Shox (8) = Gold Lion! [My fourth Gold Lion, but it completes my Lava Lagoons :)]
#17: Sea Horse (8) + Fennec Shox (8) = Chilly Goat

Note: After attempt number 10 I raised my lowest Fennec Shox and Sea Horse both to level 8 so they are easier to find in my list of animals. They are the same pair as that which previously was at respectively level 6 and 7.

As for attempts 11 and 12: I was so sad to see that both of these 11 hour timers were Firegliders. I knew that chances were always biggest that such would be the case but I would really like to finally breed the Ocean Owl that has so long eluded me now. :(

3.then if lucky to get both ... Try breeding the prize pony. ( chances very slim as witnessed in my attempts to breed the service trio

After the -once more- highly annoying trio disaster, I decided to take a nice little week of working on my own agendas.

I just put in my 4th attempt at the Prize Pony and I got a 16 hour timer, which either means the Daredevil, Beever, or -most likely- a so-manyth Thunderhawk. I have all of those and I want to go easy on gem spending. Right before that 16 hour breeding, a 3 hour Fairy Ferret was moved to the nest. I decided to speed that away and hatch the River Runner from storage. Nice! That's one "mark on my 'to do' list": hatch animals from storage.

In the meantime, last night I could initiate a new expansion. Right before the Solar Bear expansions were made available I started working on the upper blue shelf, but that will take a back-seat now. I chose to first clear the path to the Solar Bear now. I would not be surprised if that animal soon will also be required for some special breeding or so, and if not, then still it's a newly added animal and I can use some space for dark animals too. That's another mark on my own agendas.

The above expansion was of course done after weighing some options and deciding a global strategy. I took a good look at my forest and I really want to have the new Treasure Trove right next to the one where the Golden Retriever is in, in stead of at an angle in front of the den. That means that the small nature habitat in front of the den stays where it is, and that the Spring habitat will have to go elsewhere. Currently, on the lower green plots I have one Grand Fire Cove, which I'll move to the dark plot that I'm expanding to right now (once that's done and cleared of foliage), then Spring goes down, nicely cornered where it looks really good (I've had it previously in that spot and I like it there). That will give me the required room to construct a Treasure Trove next to the Golden Retriever's one.

As for the rest of my agendas: the Harvest Hedgehog will be given a miss. No big deal. It's not a particularly beautiful nor special animal and I shall do an entire week of Prize Pony breeding unless two of them are gotten soon (yeah, right...) or unless Tuesday's update brings something beyond the Prize Pony that takes precedence. Not likely. That means that this week the Quartz Quetzalcoatl shall not be used in breedings, giving me the time to level it up. Around next week Friday I expect a flash tournament, and it shall come in handy at epic level then. There's another mark on my agenda: bringing the Quetzalcoatl to full epic level. The Wild Wondercat is 5 hours away from becoming epic, after which the Quetzalcoatl will be sent into the flower for bringing it to level 10. I've currently got 183K food, so the remainder of its feedings are well covered.

Then, depending on my luck (or lack thereof) in breeding the Prize Pony I shall have to make a decision by Tuesday afternoon (hours before the Tuesday update). I really hope I can breed one before that time. If not, I may find or force a long timer in the den and buy a Prize Pony. If TL pulls a stunt and ends the sale before that time, I shall not buy it, period. A lot more food will be needed for bringing a Prize Pony to epic level too, but there are plenty of days left for that, and a lot of it can be done during the long evolutions. As long as we don't get a new Storybook in the meantime, all should work out fine...

09-26-15, 03:27 AM
I realized that the only breedable water-nature animal I have is the Turtisle! The only one! There are obviously lots of good fails here, so I could just try for the Sea Horse a few more times (tried once already and got a Turtisle) before ponying up the gems for the Pony. ;)

But on the other hand it is a long shot to get the Sea Horse and then the Pony so I may just buy it... 600 gems is not bad for a Treasure animal after all...

When the prize pony goal came out I decided to try for a money badger just for kicks.....and since we weren't sure of the breeding combo for the pony yet....21 hr timer. That was ok since the newly attained fennec Shox needed to evolve.

So my 2nd gold lion just got moved to the nest and I've begun the first attempt. Getting ready for an army of cuties now that most of the Armordillo herd have migrated on th greener pastures.

In other news, I too have given up on making the last expansion on the upper ice cliff. My upper fire shelf is expanded except for the upper left and lower left and would only allow the top right expansion on the lower fire shelf. So to try going towards the new solar bear I chose to expand the lower left of the top shelf first. (Will add this to expansion thread)

Good luck all.

1. 7 hour timer. Skyger

Hi,
Unless TL has changed something with the release of the Prize Pony, the limit is 2 of each kind (a thing I see at times in several "top dog" forests), but... there is (or was?) also a limit of maximally 6 Treasure Troves. That's a boo-boo that TL ought to fix now, as those who already have 6 Treasure animals effectively cannot add a Prize Pony to that, without selling a different Treasure animal.
As TL by now did fix the splash screen error about the gem rewarding amount, I hope they also directly pick up on this one and raise the treasure Trove limit to at least 8.

For those of you who haven't been following the current Timbear tournament thread, I'm currently having a lot of fun by having Ember, my epic Gold Lion fight ALL rounds, and doing so WITHOUT spending gems. :)
I just arrived at round 30 (and lost the first attempt). Just before that, I wrote the following (a.o. things) in the tournament thread:


"Wow, I wished that nice new "golden" PRIZE Pony would be the tournament prize: that would be very fitting! :P
Ember is certainly a "winner". Now, let's make this a self-fulfilling prophecy: if Ember wins the tournament without spending a single gem, I shall reward the forest with a Prize Pony as a permanent reminder of that epic feat! I hope I can breed one, and if not, I'll bite the bullet and spend 600 very precioussss gems on buying one! "

So, GAME ON for assuring a Prize Pony WILL make its way to my forest! Hopefully bred, and if not bought. :P
It will be nice to be able to think of that animal as the "golden prize" for Ember's efforts.

But... first the Timbear has to go down! :)

Has anyone successfully bred this with two unicorns? Those fails would be much more forgiving, and I still need two of the other treasure animals as well.
I think the important question that needs to be asked is: CAN the Prize Pony be bred using two unicorns like all other Treasure animals before it? Or has TL locked that breeding combo out secretly so we can't get it easily?

Kooky, Elsa: Is it possible to breed this one with two unicorns or did TL secretly change the rules again? 'Cause I've been trying for the past two days speed breeding with no luck whatsoever and it just occurred to me that TL could very well have locked out this combo for the Prize Pony b/c it's limited.

I really, really want clarification on this, as does anyone else with two unicorns that's been unsuccessfully trying since the Prize Pony came out. If TL changed the rules of breeding again I (and everyone else) would really, really like to know as soon as possible since this is a LIMITED Treasure. Every moment counts for us and while TL has the right to change rules in the game as they see fit, it is appreciated by the fanbase to be notified of it WHEN that happens, otherwise we just feel cheated all-around.

So, TL... Mods... anyone. Any clarification on this at all or will it not be addressed, ever?

Well no Sea Horse for me...what are my chances of a gem sale before next Friday?

Well, I did it. I got a gem sale and did something I never thought I'd do. The pony is now in the nest and in a day I'll have my first treasure animal. I don't have any gem animals either, so this one will be quite unique in my forest.

For those of you who haven't been following the current Timbear tournament thread, I'm currently having a lot of fun by having Ember, my epic Gold Lion fight ALL rounds, and doing so WITHOUT spending gems. :)
I just arrived at round 30 (and lost the first attempt). Just before that, I wrote the following (a.o. things) in the tournament thread:


"Wow, I wished that nice new "golden" PRIZE Pony would be the tournament prize: that would be very fitting! :P
Ember is certainly a "winner". Now, let's make this a self-fulfilling prophecy: if Ember wins the tournament without spending a single gem, I shall reward the forest with a Prize Pony as a permanent reminder of that epic feat! I hope I can breed one, and if not, I'll bite the bullet and spend 600 very precioussss gems on buying one! "

So, GAME ON for assuring a Prize Pony WILL make its way to my forest! Hopefully bred, and if not bought. :P
It will be nice to be able to think of that animal as the "golden prize" for Ember's efforts.

But... first the Timbear has to go down! :)

Bring home a Prize Pony for daddy! :P
I hope and pray that you get the PrizePony through breeding.
I have followed your tournament very keenly and been rooting for Ember!!! I just read that you won the tournament . Way to go Ember!!! Hats of to you to stick it through.

Well I have not been having very good time at breeding.
After the disastrous trio breeding my attempts at Fennec Shox have resulted in 3 fire gliders, and a daredevil ( which was a good fail)
So I took the plunge today and bought the Prize pony. Along with that I had to buy the treasure trove. So come tomorrow morning I shall have a new habitat and a new element added to my forest.

Same here!
As Ember pulled well through the tournament without spending any gems, I wanted to make sure to "reward" the forest with the beautiful Prize Pony. I had already started construction of a Treasure Trove last night and that's almost done. Having the Nightmare miss of the past summer freshly in mind, I have learnt to not hold out to the last moment for making use of any kind of sale in FFS. I was already quite sure I'd buy the Pony well before Tuesday's update if I hadn't bred it by then.
Towards that end I was looking for a situation where a short timer would be on the nest and a long one in the den. Today that happened: a 6 hour timer in the nest (Turtisle) and an 18 hour breeding in the den (Catypuss). I sped the Turtisle and bought the egg. It shall finish hatching some 6 hours after the Catypuss. Should I not have done it this way now, it was always going to be difficult to get a similar situation exactly at the right time close to Tuesday's update; especially with an 18 hour breeding and hatching that would need to go first then. It would result in very inefficient nest and den usage then.
As an added advantage I'll sleep a whole lot easier now that the egg is on the nest and that I'm sure that I did NOT miss out on the sale! :P
Of course I'll still be trying hard for a second one by breeding until it disappeared as quickly as it came, after only 1 week... I'd have loved this one to be permanent now, as it can be combined well with 4-element breeding, and there are still some animals I need from that combination....

No luck so far. Just got a 6 hr timer with a 16 hr Thunderhawk fail. I really dislike large disparities in timers. The problem with breeding this pony is there's a ton of possible outcomes. At least I get a shot at a unicorn as well but I'm guessing the likelihood of breeding this guy is really slim. I've been able to breed the toucan and retreiver but not for weeks/months after they initially came available certainly not within a week of introduction.

It's not the flyer fox. It's the Fennec Shox.

OMG thank you so much Jim, now I wish I had read your reply before yesterday evening... :-p I actually spent almost a full day trying for the Flyer Fox :D well, it's actually all good because this way I got one super rare I was still missing, the Paradise Parrot!

Now since I don't have a Fennec Shox either, I'd like to ask you which one of the following you would do if you guys were in my shoes:

1) Go for straight lightning/fire breeding attempts trying to get the Fennec so as to be able to maybe squeeze in a couple of Prize Pony attempts (yeah, breeding miracle needed in this case...)

or

2) Kind of forget about the Pony and just go for the Money Badger with - please correct me if I'm wrong heheh - Hareon and Armordillo in order to still be able to breed a Fennec (with a lot of luck) or (with even more luck) just getting an MB straight, which would be my first and only Treasure animal?

I'd appreciate your opinion, thank you!


EDIT:
#1 Hareon+Armordillo = Armordillo
#2 Haeron+Armordillo = 22hrs!!! (Please let it be a Tesllama, please!!!) :)

Again I see a similarity in our forests: I too am missing the Paradise Parrot! :)
For some reason I never have managed to breed it.
Congrats on getting it, and fingers crossed that the 22 hours is the Tesslama! :P

As for the question part in your post: as the Prize Pony is limited to only one week, you need to wait (or speed) for the 22 hour timer to clear, then need to breed a 14 hour Fennec, then 11 hours of hatching, then 1 evolution (don't know from memory how long that takes) and then still breed for the Prize Pony, I'd definitely try for a straight fire-electric attempt. There are only 4 outcomes of that combination and in that respect breeding a Fennec is quite easy, but the fails are long, so you may need a few attempts. On my wife's iPhone I got it on the second attempt. If you also throw earth into this mix, you'll likely have to deal with a bunch of Armordillos too. :P
On my main account fortunately I long since have two Fennecs and Sea Horses, so I could directly go for it. :P
I don't really expect to breed it though, but it would be a lovely outcome if I did.

Regarding the Pony: I had such a hard time deciding whether to try and speed-breed it or simply buy it. The thing is, the Golden Retriever took me IIRC well over 50 attempts to breed, so even though some people here got the Prize Pony relatively quickly (I've read about 1 person getting it after 12 tries and another one after only 4 tries), that's likely to be FAR from representative. At least by having bought one, the animal has been secured and I can still aim for a second one, which would be extremely welcome. :P

Thanks, Kooky. Glad you're going to ask b/c if they managed to opt out the Prize Pony from two unicorns that'll really suck for those that don't have the Sea Horse or the Fennec Shox :( Just seems like they removed that possibility since nobody yet has bred it out with two unicorns and usually that happens somewhat soon after a Treasure release.

I'm disappointed about that one too. When I saw the initial splash screen I thought my hopes came true that the new animal would be a real high roller, a thing which would be WELL warranted due to its short availability period, meaning that only a select few who actually manage to breed it, along with those who gave a substantial gem amount for it would ever get it. In light of that, I think a high earning rate would have been really fair.
TL did "fix" it by now, but the wrong way round if you ask me. The splash screen no longer says "earn up to 3 gems a day", that phrase has simply been removed. I had so much rather seen them up the earning rates to really become 3 gems a day. :(

I've spent so much on speed breeding I should have just bought the prize pony already. But I too have the rule of not buying animals in place, this may be a time where I break my rule. I really think the prize pony is beautiful and don't want to miss out on getting her, but I really enjoy the satisfaction of breeding animals. What to do, what to do??? I gave myself until this evening to decide, not taking a chance of deciding to buy her and her disappearing before I do.... Do I cave and buy her or stick to my own rule?

I really SO much understand that!
The speeding approach is very tempting, as you CAN directly get it or within very few attempts AND at the same time work on getting bombs for expansions while saving a lot of gems vs. buying it, and while having the satisfaction of having bred it.
But... with this being an ultra rare, for all you know 50 attempts later you'll still find yourself thinking "if only I put in ONE more time, maybe I'll get it...". Same wit the Spin to Win feature. Too risky for my likings...:O

Anyway: I do make use of some "small scale speeding", hence getting rid of mismatches between breeding and hatching times. There was an 18 hour Catypuss in the den which just finished, and I sped the last 6 hours of Prize Pony hatching time away. I instantly put in another attempt and got an 8 hour Aquatter timer. That will again leave a 10 hour gap; most of which will be the overnight time. Tonight before going to sleep I'll think about speeding again, or not... That shall be decided later.

For now, as the Quartz Quetzalcoatl will still have my flower occupied for the next 19.5 hours, there's a baby Prize Pony to be seen in my forest for those who want to take a look at what it looks like 'merrily strutting around' in an actual forest. Mine got a pretty name from the game, being "Sparkle". I like that. :)
I could have named it "The Prancing Pony" too, for those who know and appreciate the reference. :P

Careful there! The required animal is the Fennec Shox (fire-electric), not the Shock Fox (earth-electric)!
I've only seen two people report having bred it; one after 12 tries the other after only 4. I think both are exceptionally quick though! I'm guessing that on average dozens of attempts are needed, which makes the sale very attractive, as chances are very slim that you'll actually breed it without speeding a lot.

Yes, I'm in the same boat; I very recently bought the Quartz Quetzalcoatl. I sped a large part of its hatching away. When you then have the animal you really want to use it right away for breeding etc. but it needs to be level 4+ for that, so after a few quick moments of joy it directly went into the flower for some 34 hours or so... Ouch. For that first evolution I did speed a significant part of it, so I could start using it for 4-element shots at the service dogs. Now that last Friday a different breeding formula was needed, I have finally found a good gap to raise it to epic level. In little under 11 hours (most of which will be nighttime here, fortunately) it will finally be at full epic level, and then...
...the same start to the Prize Pony. :P

As for the question that was asked about "when" the first gem is given: not too long ago there was a thread about it and as I bred the Golden Retriever at that time, I kept close track of it.
I looked it up and it's this thread: http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?83540-Gems-from-toucan-and-retriver

My timings are combined in this post in that thread: http://forums.storm8.com/showthread.php?83540-Gems-from-toucan-and-retriver&p=1155413&viewfull=1#post1155413

The simple conclusion is that the timer starts at the moment that an evolution ends (or when the animal is actually moved to the habitat, which in my case was done at the same time).
The first timer (i.e. 1 gem in 3 days) starts when the egg is hatched into the nest. If you then evolve it, the new timer's start moment will reset to the ending time of the evolution that you just made. Same for the subequent evolutions.
There is a nice thing about the gem giving: if e.g. you're on the "3 gems per 3 day" level (i.e. one gem every 24 hours) and the moment you ended your last evolution was, say, 9:00 a.m. that time is then each day the moment that your gem becomes available. Hence, it's not the case that e.g. your gem became available at 9:00 a.m. and you couldn't collect it until say 15:00, that the 24 hour timer would then reset and that the next gem after that would not appear until 15:00 the next day. Your gems will always be given at the same time increments relative to the moment your animal finished its last performed evolution.

Guess what fail I got trying for Prize Pony..... Crystal Unicorn, yep that makes 4, sure wish I could trade with neighbors. Guess breeding the pony really isn't an option. Kinda bummed about that as I really wanted to breed her.

Hello! I breed for Pony Prize since it came out. Until now 5x Turtisle, Fireglider, 3x Conducktor, Catypuss and now 8 hours. Please TL make breeding easier for us, I want have it that Prize Pony

WOW!
Many congrats to fattom19 for having bred it with such a lucky streak!!! Wow, aweseome! With that much luck you'd better make sure to continue trying for a second one when the den clears. :P
Also: equally many congrats to ireq and sweetdeda for having bred a Crystal Unicorn! To tell you a little secret: in a way I'm *SO* hoping to get that same fail instead of a second Prize Pony. Hopefully someday that small miracle will happen for me too. :P
Even though for Sweetdeda it's perhaps an awkward fail at this time, it's still an awesome outcome.

As for me: The Quartz Quetzalcoatl just finished its epic evolution!!! That one is completely done now! Little Sparkle is now in the flower for the next 32 hours. I'll miss her baby form, but of course she'll have a far better 'ROI' (='Return Of Investment') time when she becomes an epic ASAP. :P

Breeding-wise the past two days I've been getting clumsy results: first a long timer, then a short one, then long, then short, aargh. Not so good for the gem balance as I tend to speed-clear the differences between the two. At this moment for example I have a 16 hour Thunderhawk on the nest and a 7 hour breeding in the den. Normally I wouldn't be so keen on closing the gap for 9 gems (when the 7 hour timer ends), but doing so will give me another shot at it today. I really like the breeding combination this time; there are still several animals I "need" from this; some of which for some reason just refuse to be bred by me. Also, the fact that I'm going for TWO ultra rares at the same time, does make it tempting to continue full-blooded at it and to not whine too much about spending gems on some speeding...

So far I've gotten nothing new from the breedings. Let's hope that changes. Here's what I still need from this combination:
-Crystal Unicorn !!! (ooooh, if only THAT one could be an outcome....)
-Prize Pony (a second one that is, as I have one bought one)
-Paradise Parrot (one of those animals that for some reason has always eluded me on the main account)
-Gold Lion (yeah I know: I've already got THREE of them, but well, I just "NEED" one more for my second Lava Lagoon :P )
-Ocean Owl !!! (another one that keeps eluding me and I really want it to go for the Treasure Toucan)
-Eagle Beagle (with the exception of now two Catypusses, nature-electric breeding only ever seems to give me Thunderhawks :( )
-Porkupine (see Eagle Beagle comment)
-Shockatoo (see Eagle Beagle comment)
-Storm Sphinx (see Eagle Beagle comment)
-Hippogryph (I dislike breeding water-electric as this is the only animal I need from it and the fails are long - this would be a good one to get)

So, as for timers: ANY 21+ hour timer would be GREAT, and... "the higher, the better". :P
The other timers that have my attention are: 6 hours (Paradise Parrot), 11 hours (Ocean Owl), 17 hours (Eagle Beagle and Porkupine). Unfortunately ALL of those timers are shared with animals I commonly get, being respectively the Turtisle, Fireglider and the Falconch.
Still, I'm hoping for those timers.... Let's see if I can scrape a few of these animals of my "to do" errrr "to breed" list this week! :P

OMG thank you so much Jim, now I wish I had read your reply before yesterday evening... :-p I actually spent almost a full day trying for the Flyer Fox :D well, it's actually all good because this way I got one super rare I was still missing, the Paradise Parrot!

Now since I don't have a Fennec Shox either, I'd like to ask you which one of the following you would do if you guys were in my shoes:

1) Go for straight lightning/fire breeding attempts trying to get the Fennec so as to be able to maybe squeeze in a couple of Prize Pony attempts (yeah, breeding miracle needed in this case...)

or

2) Kind of forget about the Pony and just go for the Money Badger with - please correct me if I'm wrong heheh - Hareon and Armordillo in order to still be able to breed a Fennec (with a lot of luck) or (with even more luck) just getting an MB straight, which would be my first and only Treasure animal?

I'd appreciate your opinion, thank you!


EDIT:
#1 Hareon+Armordillo = Armordillo
#2 Haeron+Armordillo = 22hrs!!! (Please let it be a Tesllama, please!!!) :)


And obviously it was a Terradactyle :( how disappointing :(
I know I can't breed the Pony cause I don't have one of the parents but it would have been nice to AT LEAST get a new super rare out of the fails...

Thanks Ogreve. I hope your breeding for your second Pony gets you some new animals to your forest. I was lucky enough to get flyerfox and shockatoo, both needed, I guess that softens the blow of purchasing the pony just a bit. My pony will hatch this evening and with unicorn still in the den I will have a gap and hatch my timbear.
In a previous post I stated that I have all outcomes with sea horse and fennec fox, I was wrong, going back through I still need hyppogryph. Although I think when my unicorn is finished I will go back to trying for quartz, another beautiful animal I would love to add to my forest.
Good luck to all still trying for Pony, I hope everyone at least gets some good fails to add new animals to heir forest while trying for her.

Finally broke down and bred with Fennec Shox and Sea Horse after not hearing a definitive 'yes' or 'no' about if it's possible to breed this out with Unicorn x Unicorn like all the other Treasure animals before it.

I've come to the conclusion (after days of speed breeding --- and my mom trying the same with her own account) that Prize Pony (or even all Treasure creatures) henceforth will never be able to be bred using Unicorn x Unicorn combo. I don't know about anyone else on here, but I'm of the firm opinion that Prize Pony (either exclusively or otherwise) is opted out of the Unicorn x Unicorn pool and tbh I (and many, many others that wasted tons of gems speed-breeding with the two-unicorn combo) will feel very, very cheated to not being told early on that that combo is basically useless to breed this one out with if it's true. Realistically, it seems more likely that TL changed yet *another* breeding rule without telling anyone about it and is remaining silent about it right til the end. It also wouldn't surprise me if, henceforth, Unicorn x Unicorn will never, ever again be able to breed out another Treasure creature no matter how many times a users tries.

I would really, really like to hear from TL or the mods on the validity of my claim. Because if it's true (and the Prize Pony is exempt from Unicorn x Unicorn combo) then that would be a really cruddy thing to do to users without informing them of the 'new' or 'special' rule that's somehow managed to appear when Unicorn x Unicorn has *always* worked for breeding out a Treasure animal. :\ I know Kooky said she'd check on my question of this combo, but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense to me (and my mom) after wasting around 400 gems each trying to get this thing with the Unicorn x Unicorn combo.

Perhaps I'm wrong and the Unicorn x Unicorn combo will bear fruit for some users trying for the Prize Pony, but imo, anyone trying to breed this with two unicorns should try and scramble to get this using the Fennec Shox and Sea Horse combo until told by TL otherwise. With so little time left to get the Prize Pony every second is gonna count if (indeed) the Prize Pony can never be gotten using two unicorns :| Good luck all, and hopefully we'll get definitive answers from TL on this soon... I just hope I'm not right.

Way to go gal!! Now THAT'S a really nice "fail"! :P
As for me, I'm 14 attempts in it and nothing new. On attempts 11 and 12 I was so sad to see that both of these 11 hour timers were Firegliders. I knew that chances were always biggest that such would be the case but I would really like to finally breed the Ocean Owl that has so long eluded me now and I want to be able to finally do some Treasure Toucan breeding.
After the second of those 11 hour timers I got a clumsy 3 hour Fairy Ferret fail. I sped the difference away and had a shot at putting the Quartz Quetzalcoatl in the den with the Pandaffodil: 1 hour fail, 5 gem skip cost. I sat it out and after that one hour cleared the nest (2 hours Fairy Ferret breeding left then). I put in another shot at the Prize Pony and got a 13 hour fail. With the nest empty, I decided to hatch the Bulldog from storage. That takes 16 hours and will hence "naturally end" in the middle of the night. Right before going to sleep I shall speed the remainder of it away.
I hope that on my next attempt I get something I don't have yet. Repeatedly failing when breeding for something special is always so much more bearable if you at least get something new from it. :P

Thanks! :) It was completely unexpected. It's really one of the best possible "fails" for this breeding. The only better one for it's elemental combination would have been the Quartz since I already had a gem-water animal (Cthulhu). But I reaaally wanted Pearl in my forest so I'm super happy about it.

I hope you get the Ocean Owl as a fail during this week of breeding for a second Pony. For some reason it seems to be especially hard for me to get the animals needed for Treasure breeding - I only have the Money Badger combo so far and I don't want to see all those Armordillo eggs anytime soon again. :p

Hopefully you will breed your first gem hybrid soon! It should happen at least within a couple of months with constant effort. It's such a great feeling when you see that timer! :)

I have been trying to breed a seahorse since I have the fennec shox. I got so many fails, so many turtisles, aquatters, Seamurs. Then I switched it up and did a four element breeding including nature and water and got a Mercat. I didn't have that one and love cats so I was happy. Then, in order to keep animals hatching for the fall event, I was going to do water and nature again but I've been getting short fails for that and was going to go to sleep. Something changed my mind and I did another four animal breeding including nature and water. I was hoping for a long timer, but when the 45 hour timer popped up, I just stared at it disbelieving.

For some reason, I thought I would never breed one. But, this is exactly what happened to me in Dragon story sometime back. It was late at night/early morning and I was up late working. I was very relaxed and not really trying...and got my first Diamond.

I think that's the best way for me LOL.

I can't confirm about Prize Pony, but I *can* confirm that other Treasure animals are still breedable by using 2 Crystal Unicorns because yesterday I was lucky enough to get my first Golden Retriever with the combo. :)

To be honest I'm happier to have gotten the Retriever since it's gem-yield is slightly better. I'm tempted to buy at least 1 Prize Pony now that I managed to breed the Golden Retriever. I have the gems sitting on my account... very tempting indeed.

BTW, I had expressed a concern about the 'limit' on the number of Treasure Trove habitats you could have (the wiki says there is a limit of 6 per forest) but I can confirm that you can definitely build more than 6; so the limit has either been raised or removed to accommodate the addition of the Prize Pony.

It would great if the habitats could be changed to hold at least 2 Treasure animals. Even with the habitat-cap increase it is still a squeeze to fit in the 1-per-habitat Treasure animals.

Congrats on the newly mentioned ultra rare outcomes in two forests (IIRC a Crystal Unicorn an a Golden Retriever). Nice going! :)

I echo the request for Treasure habitats that can hold 2, 3 or even 4 Treasure animals. At present I only have two of them, but I can definitely see this being a bottleneck should my forest be blessed with more Treasure animals. It's great to hear that it is now also possible to build enough of them to hold (at least) a total of 8 Treasure animals. I'd really love to get a second Prize Pony but I'll have to breed it then as I will NOT buy another one (unless the gem cost will be reduced to far less than the current 600 gems even): 1 bought Prize Pony is all I really want to afford. :P

Then: on my 16th attempt I *finally* got a fail that I am verryyyy happy with: a 21 hour timer! That means that it is either a Storm Sphinx (which I don't have at all yet) or my fourth Gold Lion, which would then allow me to create "symmetrical Lava Lagoons" (see my forest if you don't know what I mean by that). Either will be really welcome. Of course I ought to favour the Storm Sphinx as I don't have it, yet in a perhaps twisted way I'm hoping a little bit more that it's a Gold Lion. The reason, you ask? Well, fire-electric is a combination I'm not attempting much, and there are still several (3 at least) nature-electric animals that I need and I had planned to start breeding for those with the QQ (= Quartz Quetzalcoatl) soon (earliest will be after the Prize Pony expires and the anticipated flash tournament of this weekend is over).
If a new breedable is released (or rereleased) tomorrow, I hope it will not be limited. If it is, I hope that nature is one of the elements...
Breeding for the Prize Pony sees me working on my 4-elements agenda and there are some fails I really want to get, so that is actually a great breeding combination, but I also want to have some funny with the QQ! :P

Thanks! :)

I was lucky enough to breed 1 unicorn months ago and continued trying for a second but it took soooo long just to get 1 that I started feeling like I'd never get a 2nd one. So I splurged and bought a second Unicorn with gems during my tries for the Saintly Bernard. It was expensive but the fail times are so much shorter than trying with the actual animal combination.

I figure I'll try for all of the Treasure animals first (since they produce something more useful than coins) and then start trying for some of the gemstone hybrids later (I have had no luck breeding on so far).

Good Luck on that. I am currently using this new breedable animal lull to see how many Pandaffodils I can breed before getting my first gem hybrid :). I am currently at 40 trying for an Emerald Dragon/Quartz Quetzlcoatl. Doing OK picking up bombs(13 from the 1 hour in the Breeding Den) but it is putting a crimp on getting acorns (none for 20 seconds in the nest). I plan to keep trying until the Friday update unless a second miracle occurs (the first being my Crystal Unicorn) before then.

Still trying for the Fennec in order to be able to maybe squeeze in one single try for the Pony, but hey... all I have got so for are 6 consecutive Firegliders... :(((

Well, Sparkle, my Prize Pony just got out of the flower after her second evolution. I had my 2 minutes of fun feeding her (and taking screenshots as I went along) and off she went right back into the flower again. 32 more hours and I'll get to enjoy the sight of her permanently. :P
At adult level she sure has a solid strut to her and she looks like a solid and vigorous animal; surely she'll make a great fighter.
For those who want to get a preview of what she looks like, in anticipation while evolutions finish perhaps, I've attached a screenshot of my lovely new Sparkly Prancing Pony. :P

Enjoy!

I've finally bred the Fennec Shox and evolving it to start breeding it with my sea horse. Does anyone know how much longer we have to breed the Prize Pony before it disappears?

congratulations to those who have successfully bred the Prize Pony. :D

@Ogreve, Sparkle is absolutely gorgeous. I want one.

Elsa;1180168']Hi everyone,

We apologize for the inconvenience! Please allow me to clarify the details for this animal.

1. The Prize Pony at max level earns 3 Gems/3 Days.
2. The parents you'll need to breed are Sea Horse and Fennec Shox. :)
3. Prize Pony is a limited time animal and will be available for 7 days.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

I think I may only have one, maybe two more kicks at the can before this beauty is gone tomorrow. I've never had any luck with breeding two unicorns together, I only seem to get the most common animal fails when I do.

See what I mean? I just did this, seems to be the norm for me.

Well I decided to speed my 1hr unicorn x unicorn attempt and ended up with a 10 second Pandaffodil egg. So, back to Fennec Shox and Sea Horse and I did this....LOL! Looks like I won't be getting the Prize Pony but got a different kind of pony with a horn! :o

Thank you, it was quite a nice surprise. I have thought about buying the Prize Pony but really wanted to give it the old college try and get it through breeding. Also, I'm not sure I want to spend the gems so I'll probably pass. I won't be completely heartbroken if I don't get it, I've been fortunate to breed two Money Badger's and bought the Treasure Toucan during the Black Friday sale last year when it was really cheap so I'm ok with those guys for now :-)

Congrats to all who were able to breed this, and if you bought it that's great too, it really is a beautiful animal!

Congratulations. I am curious about how much it cost you to speed up the Pandaffodil. I have been breeding a lot with a Crystal Unicorn/Pandaffodil combination and was surprised to see that it takes 5 gems to speed it out of the Breeding Den initially, then is reduced by 1 gem for each 12 minutes elapsed.

Thanks. I sped pretty much right at the beginning so it was 5 gems (even though it had a 1hr breeding time) to move the egg to the nest. But once it's in the nest Pandaffodil hatches in 10 seconds (same with Pyro Pony) so there's no need to speed or spend gems luckily.

Thanks for the confirmation, that is the same thing I have been getting. I don't like it, but at least it deviates from the norm in a consistent manner.

It's unfortunate but that's S8/TL. I remember when the game first came out a breeding time that showed for example 6:59 (once the timer started) cost 6 gems to speed but now it's 7. But I guess that's progress :p

It's nice to see members getting fails of special animals. Congrats to all.
My prize pony is in the evolution flower for the second time. Feelings like forever before I'll actual be able to enjoy it in my forest.
Good luck to all those still trying for her.

@Hawksmoor: Wow! Congrats to yet another player who got a Unicorn from this combination!

I wish I could say the same, but unfortunately such is not the case. But.... not all is lost: I just sped the last 3 hours away of the 21 hour timer I got yesterday and it is.... Another Gold Lion!
That's my fourth one and it will allow me to make more symmetrical Lava Lagoons that I think will look really cool.
I don't have a Storm Sphinx yet but I want to specifically try for that one using the Quartz, as I still need 4 nature-electric animals.

The last attempt I put in was a 13 hour timer, so alas, no bred Prize Pony, no Unicorn, nor another new animal. But.... seeing that golden egg of my nr. 1 favourite FFS animal does largely make up for that. I don't think I'll speed anything away before today's update. I really like the sight of that particular egg on the nest. :P

Funnily enough the day before yesterday I also got a Gold Lion from this combination on my wife's iPhone! The first one there! If I raise it to epic, it's all that I need to win tournaments on that iPhone. :) :) :) :)

With no luck on breeding, I think I will buy it today. I have 539 gems so I only need to purchase like 100 more gems to afford it. Before this animal came I just got my first gem animal (golden retriever) so getting one more gem animal would be nice for my gem income because I do not have the combination for the treasure toucan yet or the money badger. I also love the fact that its a pony!

If you do intend buying then do not leave it too late. As Olafo has mentioned in one of the posts, sometimes TL ends the sale early .
It happened with me too . A gem sale still had 13 hrs to go but when my game updated after an hour , for me it happens at 12noon and midnight my time, the sale had vanished.

Yes it is likely to expire along with the Unicorgi value pack, which is 1 hour before today's update. In other words in some 23 minutes already!!!
If you want to buy it, buy it NOW! :P

After 8 firegliders in a row when trying for the second missing parent, it's time to say goodbye Prize Pony, I never had a chance to try or you even once... xD
Still there are two positive notes I would like to end with:
1) there is no LT animal on at the moment so I decided to try for my first ever Tresure, starting with the Badger. On my 2nd attempt I got another 22hr count, so maybe this time it will be a Tesllama? There is some hope.
2) much more importantly, I have a clear feeling that the Prize Pony WILL come back one day and when that happens I will at least have both her parents, I promise!

EDIT: and it was a Tesllama! Finally some positive results... :)

I tried every chance I had after 3 attempts to breed the Fennec shock, and then ended up the next egg after was a fennec shock, so got two lol. So happy about that and an aqua otter, but I really really wanted that pony! I love the horses and besides the zapra and crystal unicorn I have all the horse types I like! I really hope she comes back. I had a habitat all ready to go too... I wish we had a longer chance at her

fennec shox was my first electric hybrid, my sis has got sea horse. I do't have the other parent, so I tried to breed it, tossed in four elements for sea horse, 45 hour crystal unicorn, at near the start of the event.
