Spiders are a game mechanic similar to the Fallen Stars. There are large brown, green, and blue spiders throughout Star Stable Online. Spiders, unlike Fallen Stars, do serve a purpose as part of a quest involving Professor Hayden. Collecting all of them will result in completion of the quest as well as a full set of tack.
The amount of spiders collected in an area can be seen when clicking the collections button on the user interface or simply pressing the "J" button on your keyboard.
After receiving the quest from Professor Hayden to search for the baby spiders, the babies will be placed in select areas all over Jorvik.
Unlike the stars, which make no indicators to their presence, once near a baby spider, the player will be able to hear a squeaking, almost meowing sound, that grows louder the closer the player is.
The player will be rewarded by Hayden for finding the baby spiders. Depending on the amount you've collected you will receive a special piece of tack from Hayden.

There are 100 baby spiders in-game. Below you will find the location and the coordinates to the spiders in-game.
Do not add location coordinates and information if getting to that area requires bugs, glitches, or exploitative actions to the game.
