Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In RDR, how can I tell which horse I have? There doesn't seem to be any menu for it. Do I have to go entirely by the pictures on the wiki site? That doesn't seem like very good game design to rely on a strategy guide or 3rd party website.

Also, they said the horse would get more attached to me over time, and way back at McFarland ranch i remember getting status messages that this was happening, but now it doesn't happen anymore? Is there a screen that would show me how the horse is feeling?

5-legged horses probably like you. –  Nick T Mar 15 '11 at 16:37
    
I thought about tagging this as xbox-360 and realized it's unnecessary, because there is no PC version, then I became sad :_( –  Bora Mar 15 '11 at 17:05

Identifying the breed of the horse is done by sight alone. If you review the deeds in the general store, they'll give you a description of how the breed looks. Beyond that, pictures on game guides are your best bet.

If you're not purchasing the deed from a general store, you will have to determine the quality by the appearance of the horse. Skinny mounts are 1-star mounts, large mounts with tons of muscles are 3-star mounts, and anything in the middle is a 2-star mount.

The only indication I know of in terms of loyalty is an increase in your horses overall stamina as it becomes more loyal. There is no in-game menu that shows this information, much to the chagrin of the community:

That's what I thought. Bit of an oversight if you ask me, but at least now I can stop looking for it. thanks! –  LoveMeSomeCode Mar 16 '11 at 12:41
