In this game, animals will be a major part of your farm’s success. You can have five different animals: a dog, a horse, sheep, cows, and chickens.

Dogs | Horse | Chickens | Cows | Sheep


The dog is there from the day you get your farm. You name him in the beginning of the game, before you start farming. He starts out as a puppy, and takes about three months to grow up.

Pick him up every day (stand next to him an press the X button), and his affection for you will increase. After you buy the ball from Won, you can also play fetch with him–The more you play with him, the better he’ll do in the Dog Race. You don’t need to feed your dog.

If you take good care of him, your dog can also help in chasing away stray dogs that might come to terrorize your animals.


Sometime in Spring of the first year, you can visit the Yodel Farm and they’ll give you a horse. You can get it in two ways:

  • Go to Yodel Ranch in the first spring and Barley will give you a horse for free. Take care of it, and after 1 year, Barley will come back to see how it’s doing. He’ll take it away if it doesn’t like you enough. If he takes it away, then…
  • When your pasture is large enough, Barley will give you a horse if you don’t have one.

The horse is useful, convenient, and easy to take care of. He has his own stable, separate from the barn. In the beginning, when he’s still a pony, you’ll have to brush him (Buy the brush from Saibara, the blacksmith) and talk to him every day. A year later, when he’s grown, you’ll be able to ride him - You won’t be able to talk to him anymore. Like the dog, you don’t need to feed your horse. Take good care of your horse, and he’ll do well in the Horse Races.

The horse’s saddle also has two pouches on it, which can be used as mobile shipping bins! Just put the crops into the pouches and they’ll automatically be sold as if you’d put them in the shipping bin.


Chickens are easy to take care of, and they’ll probably be the first animal you buy. You can buy them at the Poultry Farm, and the good thing is that once you buy one, you’ll never have to buy another one - Just keep hatching eggs. When you first buy the chicken, you’ll have to feed it for three days before it’ll start laying eggs

You buy chicken feed from the Poultry Farm, or you can take corn and throw it into your windmill and make it that way. You’ll get 10 units of feed per corn. However, you can also put your chickens outside. Buy grass seeds, plant pasture, and this will substitute for chicken feed. Remember to use lumber to make a fence around the area, though, otherwise your chickens will get lost–or even worse, they’ll be terrorized by stray dogs! Make sure to take them in when it rains, though. If you don’t feed your chicken once, it won’t give eggs for three days.

Giving birth:
To hatch more chickens, just take one of the eggs and put it in the incubator, where it’ll sit for three days until it hatches a chick. It’ll take seven days for it to grow up, and another 10 days (approximately) for it to have its first heart for you and start laying eggs.

Once you get the Mayo Maker, chicken eggs can also be used to make mayonnaise. Now, although all eggs sell for the same price, they DO have qualities, depending on how well you take care of your chickens! Hence, the quality of the mayonnaise will depend on the quality of the egg.

Cows are probably the most profitable animal you can buy. When you first buy one, it’ll take approximately 15 days until it’ll start making milk, and after then it’ll produce milk every day as long as you continue taking care of it. They’re the most expensive animal; you can buy them at the Yodel Farm.

Make sure to brush and talk to your cows every day. Like the chickens, you can also put your cows outside. Make a fence with lumber, plant grass, wait until it grows, and the cows will eat that instead of fodder. You can also chop the grass with your sickle to convert it to fodder, and it’ll automatically be put in your silo. When it rains, you have to bring your cows inside, or they’ll get sick. Use the bell for this (Buy it from Barley for 500G); it makes all the cows (and sheep, too) gather to you, and then you need to push them into the barn by hand.

Giving birth:
You can use the Miracle Potion (buy it at the Yodel Farm) if you want your cow to have a baby. She’ll be pregnant for 20 days, and then it’ll take 14 days for the newborn to grow up. It’ll then take another 14 days for it to start producing milk.

Milk your cows with the milker, which you buy from Saibara at the Blacksmith’s shop. The quality of the milk will depend on how much your cow loves you, and the selling price will depend on the quality. If your cow wins the Cow Festival, it’ll start producing golden milk. Also, once you get the cheese maker, you can make cheese from your milk. Like with mayonnaise, the quality and selling price of the cheese depends on the quality of the milk.

Sheep are the second most profitable animal. They share the barn with your cows.

You take care of sheep just like you take care of cows: Brush and talk to them every day, and the more they love you, the more wool they’ll produce. Each sheep costs 4000G. As soon as you buy a sheep, you can shear them right away, although the wool probably won’t be worth much since it doesn’t have a lot of affection for you yet. It takes seven days for the wool to grow back once you shear it.

Again, like cows, you can put sheep outside: Build a fence with lumber, plant grass, and they’ll eat it once it grows like cows will. You also use the bell to herd sheep back into the barn when it rains; it’ll draw them all close to you, and you need to push them into the barn.

Giving Birth:
Like cows, you can use the Miracle Potion (for sheep) if you want your sheep to have a baby. Your sheep will stay pregnant for 20 days, and then it’ll take another 14 days for the newborn to grow up.

Shear the sheep with the clippers, which you buy from Saibara at the Blacksmith’s Shop. If your sheep wins the Sheep Festival, like cows and chickens, it’ll start producing golden wool. Once you get the Yarn Maker, you can make yarn from the sheeps’ wool. As with the rest of the animal products, the quality and selling price of the yarn depends on the quality of the wool.
