Abandoned Farm No DLC required

An old farmhouse ... nobody anymore ... the vegetation begins to invade the old stones and the windmill ... the animals were locked up precipitately for the majority ... why ?

Une ferme ancienne ... plus personne ... la végétation commence à envahir les vieilles pierres ainsi que le moulin à vent ... les animaux ont été enfermés précipitamment pour la plupart ... pourquoi ?

The Abandoned Farm is located between Helgen and Riverwood

This mod is an improved version of my Farm Animals - Mounts and Followers (You must remove this mod before installing this one)


Only for the manual installation:

  1. You have to put the folder « Data » in "...Steam/SteamApps/common/skyrim "

For the manual and the NMM installations:

  1. You must place the .esp at the bottom of the list in the "Data Files" when you launch the game to obtain the 17 books...(Normally, this is done automatically !)

You can find the “Spell tome: Summon Spectral XXXX”, the “Spell tome: Summon XXXX”, the “Spell tome: Dismiss Summoned Farm animals”, at Farengar Secret-Fire in Dragonsreach/Fort Dragon (Whiterun/Blancherive) or with an other "Spell Vendor" (ex: Sybille Stentor in the Blue Palace/Palais Bleu in Solitude).

Duration of the summon: 180 sec

  1. You can put in your Skyrim.ini ( user / my documents / my games / Skyrim ) the following settings (you can copy / paste the following):



These settings allow you to see all mounts (of my mods) correctly, whether your character takes his weapon out or not


Warning: This mod replaces all Skyrim's chickens with new chickens.


This mod adds the ability to quickly create hordes of chickens or rats (5, 15, 50, 100 ...MORE ?... Be careful with the number of animals as it can freeze your game !)

To obtain these animals*, simply buy scrolls found with: Anoriath in Whiterun Now open up your inventory, navigate to "Scrolls" and there they are. You throw them and when they hit the ground they hatch into animals.

In order to find the scrolls (or the books) at Merchant, you must choose the mod for which you want to buy and place it at the bottom of the list when you launch the game.

Bugs or Problems

  1. Sometimes there is some "distortions" of the neck of the geese...

The Chickens and the Goose can’t jump, fly or swim…

If you dismount the chickens/gooses in water, it is possible to swim in the air !! Solution: MOUNT AGAIN or SPACEBAR

  1. You can only have one Follower at a time: if you want a different one (in my other mods), you need to dismiss the first one before you recruit them.

If telling the follower to return at home (With message: “Your companion heads home”) doesn't dismiss him, or if you have "lost" the “active” Follower, you can try this:

Type “²” or "`" or "~" key to get into console, and type:

set playeranimalcount to 0

If problem with the Dialog Box of the followers/ companions (Wait - Follow - Trade - Favor - Dismiss) you can enter / exit a house or make a fast travel

  1. With Amazing Follower Tweaks by Dheuster , or other mod with followers, if problem to dismiss the followers, you can uncheck this mod (AFT or other) in the Data Files when you launch the game

  2. If you have any problem with these mounts, you can try a FAST TRAVEL...
