    It was my understanding that, years ago, there were foals available on the store. And those that purchased those foals would have them turned into rideable mounts if/when the mount system was implemented into SOTA. IS this still the case? Or do we have to fork over even more Coto's?

    There will be a NPC where you can exchange the foal for a ridable mount. That NPC is not in-game yet.

    I won't be trading my fouls in since this would make them no longer static in the world.

    Just going to clip this from the Update page so people know what their stretch goal foal gets them:

    I half expected to see all of the Overworld Maps to be full of people riding mounts. :D

    Since I've collected a few, I'm going to keep a variety of new and old. Been waiting a long time for this. Thanks, Devs!!

    I'm gonna have several myself, and already bit the bullet (I ain't rich) and bought one that I really like (after seeing it in game) .

    Besides the few "bugs" that they're workin' on feverously , they've done a splendid job on the mounts themselves.

    Hat's off to Catnip et/al for doing some great work !

    Greetings all
    I agree with majoria70 I want to keep my original Foals since they were the stretch goal and unique. I have some full grown tamed horses that I will trade in to get a mount but I think I will keep the original foals. One question though are the domesticated foals and the mounts tradeable?

    By "domesticated" do you mean tamed ?

    You trade in your stretch goal foal and you get back a rideable mount and a domesticated foal. It's "domesticated" so that it's different from the stretch goal item and you can't turn it in again.

    Lol I love those videos. I was wishing for mounts to be able to also be versatile to stay in the world if we chose. Like a 'dismiss' option or a 'don't dismiss' option. I don't think we get to fully appreciate the very nice looking mounts that are being created for us if we can only view them when riding. I do hope others feel this way as well.
