Minecraft developer Mojang has released snapshot 13w16a, adding a new game launcher and horses. It’s ‘neigh’ joke man, check it out below the cut.

PCGamesN reports that you can grab the snapshot over on the Mojang blog now, but that while you would have to fiddle around with .jar files to get it running, the new .exe launcher does all the leg-work for you. Good show.

Here’s a breakdown of new additions:

  • Added horses, based on the work of John Olarte (DrZhark), of Mo’ Creatures fame
  • Added hay bales
  • Added leashes
  • Added carpets
  • The “Respiration” enchantment now also helps seeing underwater
