Harvest Moon Back to Nature - Horse

Not like in Harvest Moon A Wonderful Life or Harvest Moon Save The Homeland, in Harvest Moon Back to Nature you can only ride your horse in your farm. So you can't ride your horse around the village.

It's a choice wether you want it or not, but I say, what's the risk? :)

Suppose you want a horse, these are the tips:
  1. Talk to Barley everyday 
  2. Give Barley boiled eggs from the hot-steam near the mine
  3. Visit Barley's ranch everyday, hope soon you'll get a cut-scene.

In the cut-scene, Barley will offer you a pony. Wait. It's not a horse? No, not yet. But it will be, and all you have to do is to take care of it. Go to Saibara and buy a brush from him, brush your pony everyday and don't forget to chat. Your pony will grow into a beautiful horse.

Now, like I said in the first paragraph, you can only ride your horse and not your pony. :) Horse needs fodder or grass, while pony won't need anything but brush and a conversation.

This next thing will happen if you don't take a good care of your horse. Barley will come to your farm, his face is sad, and at the end of the cut-scene you can see him taking back the horse. You can get it back by planting grass (buy the seeds from the Supermarket) Some say 40, buy some say 200, I haven't been through this stage, buy I believe it's 40, not 200.

At the end, horse is a great animal that you can have, besides, you can get it from Barley for free, so why not?
