about mounts and hay

as far as i can tell it enchanter runs out of food and drink way less with her mount and hay then another char of mine that has a mount and no hay.I go through water like crazy with that let me say this,the thing is the hay helps prevent losing so much food and water.I was never told it completely kept the mount from eating,only slows the consumption.that being said believe what you want to.I've had proof with my own char.s

It's a shame magicbubblesstarkist will never see this.

But it's painful to see a 2008 post claiming this works, when there was a (correct) 2003 post that stated it does not work (in regards to affecting mount food/drink consumption). Ah, our beloved EverQuest population. Mostly unemployed stoners or uneducated stay-at-home moms. Good times.
Does not affect food and drink...

Someone did a detailed testing and concluded the consuption rate does NOT change with and without the sack of hay. So it's only a myth. Don't waste your time with this

there are different situations ,such as, if your mount is a horse or a lizard ?maybe lizard doesn't eat hay. and if there is food that put before this hay in your inventory, you and your mount will eat that food instead of hay. so ... i have to test it myself , LOL

The sack of hay is NOT food. It is a quest item that you give to Henina Miller at the Miller farm in West Karana.

I tested this out, dropped all food and water off cleric, gave him this , put it in many different bag slots, even its own iventorty slot.

Gave off same emote: you and your mount are hungry and thirsty

Id's as "Straw of Karana"

IF anyone knows any different, like maybe it reduces consumption rate, please post here

Random Locations

Don't bother looking for Sacks of Hay at specific locations, they appear to be dropped randomly in and near the field by the Millers. I've mapped 17 locations around the field where the hay was dropped and they're still dropping in new places.

I found that sack of hay was ground spawn in the Miller's field in Western Karana. For those of you who do not have maps, the four coordinates for the location of the field in which the sack of hay spawns are (-2306,-5770),(-2306,-4223),(-3855,-4223),(-3855,-5770). If you drew a line to the four coordinates forming a square that would be Miller's field. Thought I would add this tidbit for those who do not care to mess up faction killing Tiny Miller.

This has been tested. Check the post here:

There is no statistically significant difference in food / water consumption with either the stack of hay, or "plain pebble" equipped (2 myths re: food and water consumption).

Yes it's true ... Mounts no longer eat your food and water if u have this .. WOOT .. it is a must for all :)
Horse food?

A player I was chatting with today claimed that having one of these in your inventory would keep horses from eating your food.

Has anyone experienced that? It sounds nifty if it's true, but it has a slight tinge of Lucky Cabbage lore about it.
