EA UK Posts A Look At Baby Pets, Minor Animals And Birds In Pets

EA UK has posted a look at baby pets (including breeding), minor animals, and birds in The Sims 3 Pets on their The Sims 3 Facebook page. Well I assume it’s about The Sims 3 Pets anyway, as it doesn’t actually say:

A young foal is already a pretty big pet, but don’t be fooled – they need as much care as anyone to become a well raised horse. Foals are very social creatures and don’t like being alone. Keep them together with their mother, be it in the same box stall or out roaming around with each other. Make sure to let them nurse from their mom, or feed them from a bottle to ensure they get the nutrients they need.

GamesRadar’s Resident Horse Gets The Skinny On Horses In Pets

GamesRadar’s Senior Wildlife Editor B. Buttercup has posted an interview with The Sims 3 Pets assistant producer Ryan Vaughan, focusing on the horses — an unsurprising focus considering B. Buttercup is one:

Buttercup: So I’m a horse, playing The Sims 3 as a horse. What can I do?
The racing and jumping skills are two of my favorite new features for horses. Using the really cool variety of different horse jumps and training posts you can place on your lot in Buy Mode, but the coolest thing about these skills is that you can actually have your horse compete in equestrian competitions at the brand new Equestrian Center. If your horse has high racing and jumping skills you can actually win a lot of money. You can also build the new riding skill for Sims while practicing your horse skills as well!
