I have generated a lot of map in hope of creating a horse spawning chunk. I realize they only spawn in the plains Biome, and I have generated three plains in my survival world. If horses do not spawn using chunks then I am in big trouble. I have searched all over my map and not found a horse. Any Ideas on what could be giving me these problems. If no ideas there, What is an inventory editor for 1.6 so I can get a few horse spawn eggs?
After find three new sandstone villages, two new jungle temples, two new witch huts, and one new mushroom island, I found some. You probably just need to explore a lot in new plains biomes, but I did hear something about them spawning in plain bioms you've already found but I haven't tested it yet.
If you don't mind creating a new world, seed -371826517841325755 has some right next to where you spawn. Found them while working on a mod and spawning new worlds when I changed some item ids. There's a baby horse that is suffocating - if you're quick you can save it, if not, there's a mother and foal as well.
I'm still hoping to find some on my 1.5.2 world. Been killing passive mobs wherever I find them. No luck so far.
The Seed "Horses" spawned me next to a planes biome and a crap load of horses.
2nd thing. They are an uncommon mob in the Planes Biome, and passive mobs do not despawn. So if your in a plane biome and don't see a horse. Start killing everything that does not go naaaaa in a 128 block radius around the plane. Eventually you'll find them.
Try this seed: 826751510
You spawn in a taiga, just walk down the hill and over the swamp area, there is a plains biome less than 1 or 200 blocks from spawn and it has absolutely more horses than any one player could deal with. You can probably collect just about every color of horse because there are so many of them. As soon as you cross into the swamp, you should be able to look just over the ridge and see horses standing around.
Just an example, the biome is pretty huge and almost every area of it contains horses. I found a herd of 5 donkeys as well.
As a bonus, there's a very accessible zombie dungeon just under the surface near a little pond in the middle of this plains, it gave me 2 name tags. Seed has a few other cool things like a nice desert village, nearby witch hut and epic compound ravine/mineshaft which I haven't fully explored yet. I've found a few other seeds bearing horses near spawn but this one had the best yield.
When I first updated I wanted to go look for horses immediately so I did but I had no luck finding any so I just went back to my house, did some stuff and then went into some plains biomes that I had never been to. Some of the places I went, was outside of the map where I couldn't tell where I was going.
Basically, if you're having trouble, wait for a bit then go explore some new places. You'll be sure to find some horses!
