Because I want to and because several people have shown an interest.
Why ‘The Mane Quest’?
The mane is the long hair on a horse’s head and neck. A main quest is what you call a central task or mission in a role playing game.
My favorite alternative names for this site were “The Stable Release”, “Ponygon” and “The Buggy Bronco”.
Why haven’t you played/written about [insert game]?
Either I haven’t heard of it, or I simply haven’t had the time for it. If you’d like to hear my opinion about the horses in a specific video game, feel free to send me a suggestion via firstname.lastname@example.org.
So you’re an expert on horses, right?
Absolutely not. Compared to most equestrians, I’m hardly qualified to teach other people about horses. But since no dedicated websites/blogs for horses in video games exist (that I’m aware of), I am the best you got. I do what I can in terms of research, and I very much encourage fellow equestrians to bring inaccuracies to my attention.
