We're continuing to count down the day until Valentine's Day in FarmVille, and Zynga has made the countdown even more lovely this evening by adding three new themed animals to the game. Two of these limited edition animals can be found in the game's store, while the final animal can be received as an offspring of one of the two.
The two store animals are the Valentine Elephant and the Valentine Pony. Personally, it's a bit of a head-scratcher as to why they aren't called the Heart Elephant and Heart Pony, to coincide with the other themed animals released this year, as they are both covered in hearts, but I suppose we'll let that one slide. Both animals are premium, as you'd expect, with the Elephant being available for 18 Farm Cash, and the Pony being available for 24 Farm Cash.
The third animal, then (as you might have guessed) is the Valentine Pony Foal, which is available if you purchase a Valentine Pony and then randomly breed that pony in the Horse Stable (with either a Wandering Stallion, or some kind of permanent stallion you have on your farm).
Both of these animals will be available in the game for 14 days, proving that the Valentine's Day theme will be sticking around, even if only for a little while, after the holiday itself has passed. Still, wouldn't you rather purchase these items now than later?
