Farmer's Faire is here (from Sep 5 - 18 or 19), and there is no way I would miss it if I could help it!
This year, there are TWO new horses to obtain.
If you want to learn more about the quests, read CSTM's Farmer's Faire Guide. I mentioned lots of quest details and tricks last year at the inaugural Farmer's Faire with the story, Faire Hobbits don't get Drunk! and a critique at the end of the Faire. Overall, the Faire fixed the drunk hobbit quest, but made no progress to improve the "Golden Egg" or the "Fishy" quest/deed. As far as I know, the Fishy quest to not catch 50 fish before catching a bad fish has never been completed by anyone anywhere. That is stupid-bad odds.
Regardess, it is very easy to get Faire tokens. We do the "Manning the Market" quest which is to assist 6 customers within 15 minutes. It takes 7 - 8 minutes to do, and we get 6 Bounder's tokens bags for the 6 customers, plus the 24 Faire tokens. With the remaining time on the clock, we go over to do an Egg Hunt with random success, and the Mushroom Hunt which nearly always yields a high amount of tokens.
The new horses this year are the Summerfest Steed and the Steed of Plenty.
Summerfest Steed - the nearly-free horse: The Summerfest Steed is a must for everyone who can ride a horse. Even if you don't like horses, the price is so cheap you should not pass it up. The cost is 1 Farmers Faire token. Basically, if you just go over to the area, I think you get 3 tokens; so this is really a free horse. I have no idea why a horse named the Summerfest is at the Faire and not the summer festival, but I saw rumor that it was inadvertently left out of the festival.
Go get your nearly-free horse. Here is a look at him. He is a fine white horse with grey hair and bright summer green and bright yellow outfit.

Steed of Plenty:
The Steed of Plenty costs a bit more at 120 Faire tokens, so it might take a couple of days to get it. There is still time even if you haven't started so get enjoy the Faire!

WarSteed of Plenty:
The Warsteed of Plenty can be bartered also for 120 Faire tokens. The outfit is a one-piece only, called the Caparison of Plenty. For sure, this outfit is one for someone who really likes to have maximum effect from the outfit dye as every color is bright and sharp!
Here is the Default Warsteed outfit (which is Sienna), followed by a selection of different Warsteeds of Plenty in a variety of colors.
