Horse Personality Randomizer

Thu Feb 2, 2012, 6:29 AM


This randomizer was made by Hathien603, BaliroAdmin, and BVicius.
The original idea was to create this for the Horse Art RP Game on Deviantart - but it is free to use by others as well and for other purposes.
We do kindly ask for credit though.
Please link back to these journal's where possible, so others may find it as well.

Recently my husband frog357 took some free time and surprised me by announcing he had turned this into an automatically randomized generator. Please visit this link to view the automatic randomizer:…
Please let me know if you find any bugs or experience any issues.

Do not copy the content of this randomizer and claim it your own!
Please respect the people who put time into creating it.
Thank you ^^

About the HPR
To use the HPR, first open another browser window and go to
In the top right corner you find a little box.
Change the two numbers in the box to fit the two numbers you see in the () in the benning of the sections below.
Like "Base Personalities (1-50) - then change box numbers to 1 and 50.
Then press generate.
Match the generated number to the number on this journal to find a personality for your horse.

You got other options besides just personalities, such as special querks.
Feel free to give your horse 2-3 querks, if you want.
