Sounds exciting, I can't wait for horses to come out, though the armor seems a bit too RPG for minecraft.

The horses will be so good.

I have a horse in my Yogbox series on my channel. Now I can have him in my vanilla series too :)

So much win!

Horses will be awesome, wait, no, I mean AWESOME!!!! But getting series now, anyone else notice the pig in the picture of the horse? With the way Mojang normally posts pictures of updates this early, this could mean pigs may be getting an upgrade as well. So pig enthusiasts please calm down.

Now, the important question is - Is Horse Armor a paid DLC? *badum tss*
...But that's just my opinion.

Well, considering Minecraft is almost an RPG, I don't really think this there's much of a problem with some feature being "too RPGish". Now, if Mojang wanted to add plot, stats, and a linear game progression... [i]that [/i]might be a problem.

I'm pretty happy about horse armour. The combat system in Minecraft definitely needs improvement - I just hope that one of the future improvements will be more weapons. Spears would, specifically, fill a proper niche - long-ranged melee attacks (more range, less strength). Hammers would be appreciated, too, and they could be stronger against armoured opponents, but less effective against unarmoured opponents. There always has to be a trade-off.

Range and armour penetration for reduced base damage. Seems fair enough.

I am reborn...

Hmm... If only there was a way to customize armor in vanilla MC, I'm not talking about dying it, but like adding details or writing to it. Make myself look like a bad-ass Paladin on top of a horse doing that :D

Interesting. I wonder if they finally thought up a real use for pigs which is why they are now making horses a new mount.

Though I can't think of anything good - and vaguely realistic - for pigs to do in the game. Maybe they'll eat anything you throw on the ground?

I don't have any problem with horse armor right now.  Heavier armors such as iron should slow you down slightly, while lighter armor like leather and chain shouldn't affect you that much. Not so much that it'd be annoying, just decrease it by a small margin.

I'm so excited for horses! Now, no more ideas of pigs and mine carts being the only mode of transportation. I'm hoping the armor looks different or cool for each armor type. And I really do hope they include the variety of horse breeds they had in Mo' Creatures. I want a Pegasus to travel around in. I say this, because it was said that this was a collab with the creator of Mo' Creatures. If they can, add more mobs too. Like, hostile mobs and maybe a non-hostile mob, like... Foxes? Please? :3
I wish they would of been this dedicated to the making of wolves. Like if they would of made those equip-able barrels you see on those old-fashion rescue dogs. Like a mini-storage.
Furry you say? I hope you mean "lover of original anthropomorphic characters." But don't take us the wrong way from what people say on the Internet. That commercial on TV lies!!
I like anime, video games, being a furry, art, tech, and THE FUTURE. What does mean to me? I can go to any convention I like! I just need time off and a ride, though... Halp?

Horse armour? I would like to see the horses first. But I like it. I hope they have a snapshot on Thursday!

Note: my two favorite words when talking/ replying are however and personally

The only hope you have is to accept the fact that you're already dead. The sooner you accept that, the sooner you'll be able to function as a soldier is supposed to function: without mercy, without compassion, without remorse. All war depends upon it.

Armor for Horses? Nice, hopefully the combat overall gets a good update, and animation update. Imagine swinging a sword at someone on a horse, seems awesome.
Anyway, looks like a great update :)
