# Wild horses in javascript always ran out of time

I am trying collect all the horses put in the fence. however I always got one reminder, it ran out of time.

How would you successful for this level?

one more thing I dont understand why when they say “hi” and move back to “geez” by added 7 and move back to “hi” back forth over till they see the horse.

What I am trying to do is say “hi” several of time by subtract -7 number till the Conditional Statements become false. If I want to set up Conditional Statements for (x2 <= 79) (this.say(“geez”)) it refused let my hero walk to all the way to right side at appox 77 number then the Conditional Statements will become false back to (x1 >= 1)?

``````
loop {
// How do you find the nearest friendly unit?
// horse = ?
var horse = this.findNearest(this.findFriends());
if (horse) {
var x1 = this.pos.x - 7;
var x2 = this.pos.x + 7;
var y = this.pos.y;
// var y1 = this.pos.y - 1;
if (x1 >= 7) {
// Move to the horse's y position but use x1 for the x position.
this.moveXY(x1, y);
// x1 += 7;
// this.moveXY(x1, y);
this.say('hi');

}
else if (x2 <= 79) {
// Move to the horse's y position but use x2 for the x position.
this.moveXY(x2, y);
// x2 -= 7;
// this.moveXY(x2, y);
this.say('geez');
}
var distance = this.distanceTo(horse);
if (distance <= 15) {
this.say("Whoa");
// Move to the red x to return the horse to the farm.
this.moveXY(27, 54);
this.say("stay!");
// Move back out into the pasture to begin looking for the next horse.
this.moveXY(28, 18);
}
}
}

So, the comments say you need to move to the horses y position - but you seem to be moving to your y position in this code?
Also I don’t think you need the hi and geez say commands.

Maybe try those, and see if it helps round up the horses.

Am I supposed to change the var y = this.pos.y;? I dont think so because when see the horse its will automatically change the number toward the red X to return the horse to the farm. I have been struggled with this level. I dont know how to beat the timer. maybe can you help me or feedback with this?

and other reason I want to put the hi and geez because it will help me understand what they do with the code. I will remove the commands when i need.

You said you run out of time, matt is trying to tell you that the extra “say” commands USE time . . . so take them out and maybe you’ll have enough.

Yes, removing the say commands should help. But the comments say you should move to the horses y position, i.e. horse.pos.y, but you are going to this.pos.y. Which I think means you won’t be going to the correct y position on the screen.
