If you have Pets, you've probably noticed that animals, most especially horses, really, REALLY like to eat your garden plants (which, of course, always destroys the plant.)

I do a TON of gardening in my game, and having to put my garden in a big fenced in area was tedious and annoying, so this was a behaviour that drove me absolutely insane. Thus, I came up with this simple little fix. This changes the "Eat (Plant)" interaction to non-autonomous, so pets can still eat plants if you direct them to, but they will not do it on their own.

This is NOT any kind of core mod, it is only a simple tuning tweak. The only file this changes is "EatFromHarvestPlantPet_HarvestPlant", so there should be no incompatibilities or other such issues.

Obviously, if you don't have Pets, you don't need this. This is fully compatible with 1.63 and all EPs, but it should be compatible with older patches, as I don't believe they've ever made any changes to this file.

Thank you so, so much for this! I always have a garden full of plants, and it's so annoying to constantly put fences around your garden. Amazing <3

Definitely a need addition! My current legacy generation gardens a lot and it's annoying when the wild horses wander in and do this, plus I'd like my family to have horses at some point too. Thank you.

And why can't we just fence the plants in and lock the door to pets? Or zombies...

Thank you for this mod. Sometimes a fence-in yard just doesnt go with the property, so this mod is greatly appreciated!

I love both horses and gardening in this game, and they just don't mix well. A very useful fix for that problem. Thank you.

Umm... fences are a good idea. There's also an option for turning off Autonomous actions for pets and sims alike.

Nice mod if a bit redundant...

The number of times I have screamed 'stop eating my freakin' plants!' when I leave my lot unattended for just a minute and the family horses have decided eating all the plants would be fun.

@JackieSmith, this is not in the least bit redundant. The functions you list may accomplish this action as well, but they also have other side effects. I want my horses to have all their autonomy and not all real gardens use fences, so why should all sims?

Fences don't stop ghost horses from eating plants.
