Stables provide four horses each. When built, it starts with no horses and it slowly fills up its stocks. After that, one horse is immediately taken, when a fresh knight is recruited, as knights are mounted troops and they cannot move on foot. However, if they die or disband, their horse is lost, but the game will track how many horses are in use, so it will provide additional horses to fill the stables' capacities.
As stables are expensive and mandatory for knight recruitment, they make building an army focusing heavily on them very hard.
- If the stables catches fire, the whole building will burn, but the unused horses will remain there, seemingly undisturbed by the fire.
