  1. hello,
    does anybody know if the star gazer gypsy horse gives coconuts? and if so; how many? :)

  2. Reply to 4-5-2012 12:56PM. The horse does not appear to give coconuts but I could be wrong. There is a Coconut Catalog that tells what coconuts what give on this same group of information on the Coconut Harvesting Animals and trees, Go to Hope this helps. By the way, Blue Whale gives most 5000 coconuts. If you are in to horses the Cremello Stallion gives 4500 coconuts. CA

  3. I can't harvest the cow in barns, when I put it inside it goes down to 0% before I harvest it. Is that normal?

  4. I wonder why we can't have FREE Instant Grow as a reward for some of these tasks?!?!?! We got the Miracle Grow Tree but that doesn't do anything to help with crops grow!! It would make life a little more interesting!!! So the team who plans all these quests/rewards let's see FREE Instant Grow on here please!!!\

  5. I tried to reply to comment above but nothing happend when I clicked reply - anyway, my cow makes my barns and pens go down to 0 percent as well. Don't see how I'm going to finish this at that rate. Now I remember why I don't usually do quests - they are SO frustrating.

  6. I to tried to reply to comment but nothing happened. Anyways whenever I put cows in my barn or chicken's in my coop mine to goes to 0% but after I hit the refresh button once or twice they go to 100%. On rare occasions it may take several times of hitting the refresh button or restarting my firefox before the barn or coop goes to 100%

  7. from "elisa" answer to question about harvesting cows (and other animals):
    yes, the old fasioned barns go from 100% to 0% if you put in a not ripe cow. the new pasture/paddoc goes back 4%, that is 1 hour. but you can harvest the diary barn several times in a row!!!
    here's the trick, works for old time horse stable and chicken coop too: all cows ripe in 1 day (the same as all buildings), but horses grow in 2-3 days). keep several cows (horses) outdoors (those giving the least money). if the barn/stable is ready, harvest it (if not it does not matter) and make room for the special animal(s) you want to master fast and put them in (if ripe, harvest once outdoors), and leave 1 place empty inside. then take 1 ripe animal (or at least some 50%) and put inside = the barn becomes 100%! harvest. take out 1 cheap animal and put in another 100% from outside instead. repeat this as many times as you have ripe animals outdoors. besides speeding up mastery this gives a lot of coins every time, and also other rewards (babies, fertilizer, coin bonus etc).
    chicken coops work different: all chickens ripe in 1 day. harvest them once outdoors, then put them in a ripe coop and harvest again = 2 harvests. putting a ripe chicken in the coop will make it 0%. also you can put chickens in an aviary, it will go back 4% (1 hour for each new animal). I'm not sure, but i think once in the past empty coops became 100% if putting in a ripe bird, but not anymore.
    another farmer told of buildings getting 100% when refreshing the game. it can be true, i have sometimes noticed that they all of a sudden were ready to harvest. for example i never harvested the baby play pen, but passed the task that required 2 harvests! but this may be a recent glitch in the game...
    PS: when publishing comments here, there should be an option to choose facebook ID! i don't know how to use the others.

  8. from "elisa" correction: by mistake i wrote that same trick works for chicken coops - the text on top, but in the next part it is correct.

  9. i completed the planter picnic quest and it didn't allow me to restart them like it says you can. I was wondering what was up with that.
