Can I complete this quest even though I have passed level 11?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

Why are there two versions of this quest?
Some quests have two versions, as when the makers have updated the times for quests they haven’t updated them on all devices so some players still get the old times

How do I practice brushing another sim?
Select the interaction between two sims

My game says there is something under construction when I try to repair a stable, what do I do?
Firstly you need to read the pop up as it tells you exactly what is under construction, once you have go there and click on it to finish building, then you will be able to repair the stable (it will be something you have built previously but probably just haven’t clicked to finish building yet!)

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal.

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post

  2. I hate that this is a required quest, Ive had this quest active for over a week now while I save up money for the hobbies and career store and then the stables! I don’t even want the stables or horses! In my old game I never touched the stables again after the quest. I wish this was an optional quest.

  3. Great blog! Your walk-throughs are superb. I wish other people would give walk-throughs as exhaustively!

    I’m glad I read the quests and pace out the timing. I was able to build the Promotions Store in time to complete this quest.

    EA needs to work on their timing – this one clearly trips up a lot of people!

  4. My two star horse is stuck in the row between the two stables and won’t come out. I’ve restarted the app and my phone. Turned wifi on and off. Tried calling it and all I get are the footprints showing it is refusing. Any ideas ? I don’t really want to buy another .

  5. Okay so my question is about the monuments on the mysterious island. I am of high enough level to unlock each monument after the riches of terra but, when i click the monument there is only a checkmark next to what i need to unlock it. What do i do to fix this? Is it a bug?

  6. Hi! Firstly, I love your blog, it has been so helpful! Secondly, can the sims do anything with the painting? It has a symbol on it for the “fun” need, but how does that work? Thanks in advance 🙂

  7. Hey!! I am in love with your blog I refer to it everyday with my quests. Right now I am finishing the Need for steed quest. For the next quest: I accidentally made my two sims divorce each other and I can’t get them to marry again so I can get a baby again because I also accidentally deleted my baby, what do I do??? Thanks 🙂

  8. Hi. I didn’t build promotion r us yet. It takes 12 hours for me. Is there another way to buy telescopes or maybe do you think I can still earn the prize? Please answer. Your blog is very useful to me. I check it daily. Please continue to update it!

  9. I’m on level 22 and I bought a telescope from prom r us store, placed in in a yard, clicked on it and it only gives the option for “cloud watch” it doesn’t give option to “spot horses” I also took a 3 minute drive and afterward clicked on telescope…still no option to spot horses. How can I complete this quest?

  10. I completed the quest and went back to the stables to start building the tricks area and the horse that I got during the quest is gone…did that happen to anyone else? I figured we would get to keep the horse we got during the quest but mine isn’t in its enclosure anymore…ive gone back several times over the last day or so and still no horse. 😦

  11. If I am going to start the “Watch a Documentary” task for the Quest for Toddlers early, when should I do it? I love starting things early, it’s super useful! (:

  12. Wow! Really unfair of them to give 2 days…Yet you need to purchase something from a store. A store that you still need to purchase and build – takes 24 hours.
    So, an ENTIRE day out of the TWO that they give you to complete this quest, is spent waiting for the store to be built.

  13. The unicorn painting isn’t just for looks. You can bring a sim to it one at a time and get them completely inspired, instead of having to feed them, make them social etc. it’s definitely worth it!!

  14. I don’t like this quest, if I haven’t started the quest, will it skip to the next quest after the limit time over?

  15. It cost me 250,000 to build it and I don’t have enough because I spent it cause I saw it only 15,000 and I need 100,000 More😔

    • The problem is if you buy a lot of businesses you don’t need yet then the price increases for the ones you do need for the quests so don’t build anything unless you need it for a quest otherwise you are going to find these very difficult to complete in time. It would have cost you 15,000 if you didn’t buy other places before it.
