    Simply find a horse and donkey, tame them and group them together in fences or walls. Feed them a golden carrot (8 gold nuggets around a carrot) or a golden apple (8 gold nuggets around an apple) and let the magic happen! It took over a minute once the mule was born for the achievement to pop.

    Edit: this unlocked on a brand new world for myself and wasn't able to activate love mode on imported worlds. There are messages conflicting so if your imported world doesn't work, try the seed from the cartographer achievement guide as it spawns you next to three villages and on my version, had a donkey and a horse near the first village.

    OliversuddennI can confirm that I got this on an imported world! Once you either spawn a donkey and a horse or tame a donkey and a horse simply feed a carrot or Apple to them and love mode will happen

    InterracialAlso got this on an imported world. Easy cheevo, just give both animals apples until they are tamed (you can mount them). Then feed them both 2 apples each and a little horse thing should spawn next to them. Cheevo should pop shortly after.

    So for this I got a bit confused whilst following the other guides but this is what worked for me, also tried with another account and worked perfect.

    I used a lead (took one from a traveler) to grab a donkey and horse and bring them to my farm and fence them in. Now make sure you tame them!! I wasted 5 golden apples trying to feed them but got it first time after making sure they were both tamed (for me the donkey wouldn't enter love mode until he had been previously tamed).

    After taming both the animals then feed the donkey a golden carrot and the horse a golden apple (i'm not sure if either or both work for them but this is what I used.) and they will both be in love mode and next thing you know, you are now 30 Gamerscore richer!

    BulletLukey has made an awesome world for this. You can join our realm (as long as it still runs) or download the world yourself.

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    In this world, simply go to the respective area. Simply spawn a horse and a donkey, then tame them, before giving them both some of the golden carrots to breed them.
