It walks slowly, but it gallops very fast when inside the forest, while its gallop speed is comparable to the black horse on open land. It normally has slightly more stamina than the original horse, but less so on open terrain. It can graze on grass to recover stamina, but is slightly slower than the horse on developed land.
The stag is also able to make deer follow it. By walking near a deer it will cause an attraction harp sound to play. Afterward, small love hearts will appear above the normal deer along with a notification sound and the deer will begin following. The deer don't gain speed, so they cannot keep up with stag.
