For example, if you know how to make an iron golem in Minecraft, you will have an iron for making armor. Similarly, you can also have a horse in Minecraft. You might need to breed a new horse because yours might get hurt and you would need one that has better stats.
How to Breed a Horse in Minecraft?
To breed a horse, you will need two horses or two donkeys. These will be the parents. The parent horses or donkeys should not have bred in the past five minutes. You need to choose the parents according to the traits that you want the offspring horse to have. If you do not have two horses or two donkeys, you can use one horse and one donkey. The offspring of these two will be a mule and it will not be able to breed.
Then you can either get a golden carrot or golden apples. Apples are more costly so you can go with carrots for making the process easy. No matter which one you use, your horse will be the same.

You can also feed it seven hay bales or 24 golden carrots to make it grow instantly. Remember that you will not be able to ride the horse when it is in the intermediate stage. Wait for it to become an adult and then you can ride it.
