Go Black Beauty! Minecraft Update 1.6 introduces horses

The team at Mojang have outdone themselves with the amount of time and effort put into updating Minecraft. The Minecraft Update 1.6 introduces Horses, Donkeys, and Mules to the animal list. Impressive when you think most publishers would be heavy handed screaming “downloadable updates” (The new super-secret term for DCL) to us.

The update announcement comes as Microsoft is set to release Minecraft on retail for the Xbox 360 this week.

You can test the new release though the pre-realise form.


Here are the changes coming to Minecraft 1.6:

  • Adding Horses, and the ability to equip them with Horse Armour.
  • Adding Donkeys & Mules
  • Leads for both Horses, Donkeys, & Mules.
  • Adding Carpets
  • New Items: Hardened Clay, Stained Clay, Block of Coal, & Hay Bales.
  • Texture packs are getting s remake to ‘Resource packs’ that can also change Sounds.
  • Food meter drains after being healed via the full food meter.
