Ranch part time job

Bob's part-time job at his ranch

look after his cow and horses. By doing this, you will be able to increase your friendship points with Bob and learn how to take care of your own animals. Bob will pay you at an hourly rate, and you can work from sunrise to sundown to increase your money. So, if you stay long enough you can make over a 1000G in one day (after selling the milk)!

If he is satisfied with your work at the end of the first season, he will give you a horse for free! Be sure to give more attention to the horse of your choice when you're having your part-time job because it will be the same horse that he will give to you. Sometime between Summer 2nd and 6th, Bob will drop by at your farm and offer you the horse.

You help Ronald by taking care of his chickens in the coop outside. He will supply the chicken feed you need. All you need to do is to feed each of the chicken and collect their eggs. There are a total of 6 eggs you need to collect. After calling it a day, Ronald will pay you 180G and will give you free egg. This free egg that he'll give you can be useful early in the game because you can place it in the incubator at your own chicken coop in your farm and after 3 days, the egg will hatch. This let's you avoid having to buy your first chicken from Bob's Ranch Store!

You will be able to collect lumber every three days, regardless of how much or how little you have taken.
