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.
TranierxWorked fine for my world that I imported from the Xbox One Version

lightsup55I tried to help someone else unlock this achievement in my world, but no love mode mode happened. Is this bugged as a host-only achievement?

Note: The host and joining players were on beta version 1.2.3.3 and we were on an old tutorial world synced over from Minecraft: Xbox One Edition. And yes, "Activate Cheats" was and had always been disabled from the first time the world got loaded.

Chaos MythologyI'm not getting the love mode to

Chaos2KeresOriginally, this achievement was bugged that you could only unlock it on brand new worlds, not imported world. I got this achievement on a world level I created and had a friend joined who also got it so it isn't host only. Not sure if there was something special from trainers world to unlock it

RunWithoutPantsI can't figure out how to feed the golden carrot to the donkey to get it to enter love mode. Horses enter love mode no problem. Any thoughts? 1.2.3 on xbo

lightsup55Did you tame both the horse and donkey before feeding? And are they both within 8 blocks of each other?

thepack1221I can’t for the life of me get a tamed horse to enter love mode. Is it confirmed this can’t be on an imported world?

thepack1221I do not have Windows 10. If you’d be willing to do that, I would greatly appreciate it!

ShadowFlame117Got on imported world. Tamed a horse and donkey, fed them each a Golden Apple/Carrot (it will not say "Love Mode" at the bottom of the screen; it will say "Feed"), a mule popped out, and the achievement popped once I checked my list.

lightsup55thepack1221, do you have Windows 10? You can host a world from Minecraft (Win 10), join it using your Xbox One using the same Gamertag, as long as both are on the same local network (wired/wireless).

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.
