I really loved this expansion at first but after a while I got over it. The town it comes with, Appaloosa Plains, is nice but sometimes feels a little small, lot-wise. I like the idea of the minor pets (turtles, rodents, birds, snakes) but they get boring quickly. The cats look a little creepy to me and are boring for the most part. The dogs are better, some breeds look a little funky though, and you can interact with them more. Horses, obviously, have the most you can do with them. As for CAS and buy/build, those items are a little too equestrian-themed for me and they lack variety. But as an animal lover, I sill love this expansion and always give my Sims a dog or two.
