Murdocc85’s Galactic Stallion hits Pioneer Trail for crazy 99 Horseshoes

Galactic HorseSeriously, that steed better be fitted for intergalactic travel at that price. The winner of the Design Your Horse Contest in Zynga’s Pioneer Trail has been chosen: Murdocc85’s Galactic Stallion. With that, the horse has finally been recreated in the game and is now available on the Market for 99 Horseshoes. Granted, the sparkly equine wonder is on sale for 80 Horseshoes right now, but only for another two hours as of this writing.

That price amounts to somewhere around $ 11, in case you were already reaching for your credit card. Now, that’s the standard price–all Horseshoes are 50 percent off until 3 p.m. PST. Regardless, entire games are sold on the App Store for a tenth of that. The Galactic Stallion is one beautifully designed creature, with its body consisting of stars and surrounded in sparkles. (It’s quite reminiscent of the Celestial Steed offered in World of Warcraft.) But it doesn’t appear that the animal does anything special to warrant such a steep fee.

Not to mention that this impressive creature was designed by a Pioneer Trail community member. You would think that the winner would be interested in having his creation enjoyed by everyone–not only for those willing to pony up more than 10 bucks. Despite that, congratulations, Murdocc85. You’ve created one purrty in-game item.

Pioneer Trail Crafting Workshop Collection hints at future building?

If you’re feeling bogged down in Halloween content in Pioneer Trail, rest assured that Zynga hasn’t abandoned thoughts of other things, as it’s clear new items are definitely in the works. How do we know? A new Crafting Workshop collection has shown up in the game’s Collections menu, and we’re told specifically that these collectible items come from a Crafting Workshop Building.

To be specific, the folks at CEGamers have found a picture of the Crafting Workshop in its final form. Whether or not the building has already started a slow rollout, or if this was just a preview of things to come, however, remains to be seen. For what it’s worth, the game’s official forums has made no official claim about the Crafting Workshop event existing, let alone anything about when the building will launch for all users.

Either way, we do know further details about this collection, which requires the following five items:

Saw Dust
Bent Nails
Framing Squares
Measuring Sticks
Bird Houses
