1) How to earn money: There are many ways to earn money in the game. There are over 200 quests that make money, many mini-games and objects that are all over the ground can be sold to stores. You can bale hay and sell it to the feed store as well. Putting money in the bank gains interest and if you own a ranch, windmills make you money.
2) Objects to earn money: Collecting ojects and selling them to stores or residents that want them can be a great way to earn money.
3) Quests: There are different types of quests (see GAME->Quests). These make the player quite a bit of money. Some are jobs are given by the residents of Horse Isle, while others are mini-games to be beaten.
4) Ranch ownership: Ranches are very expensive, however once you own one, it can help you make money. For every windmill you build on the ranch, it earns you $500 every real hour. This is whether you are online or off.
5) The bank: Any money you deposit into the bank will earn interest. This is while you are playing as well as while you are offline. The more money in the bank, the more interest you will earn.
1) Gems: Gems tend to be worth the most money when sold to stores. The more rare the gem, diamonds for example, the more they are worth. The jewelry workshop in Whiskerton will make necklaces with different gems if you have the necessary objects.
2) New objects: objects on the ground, replace themselves when collected at a rate of one per minute, until their world-max is reached.
3) Special requests: There are some residents, NPC's, that want specific objects and will pay you if you bring them some. An example is Twig, in Eartip Forest. He likes red pine cones and will pay you $1000 for every one you bring him. This object is worthless to bring to a store however. By talking to NPC's you will learn which ones like specific objects.
4) What good are they: Many objects are laying on the ground all over Horse Isle. Some are worth a lot while others are worth very little, or nothing at all. Some are good for food, others are needed in order to finish quests. The ones that are worth more are perfect for making money. You just walk around collecting them, gems for example, and then sell them at the appropriate store.
5) Where to sell objects: Objects can be sold at stores. There are specific stores for certain objects. Rock and jewelry can be sold at rock stores. Flowers are sold at flower stores. Food or random objects can be sold at general stores.
1) Pricing: Some towns might be a little more expensive, or not pay quite as much for items. So, for example, the Earton rock store isn't going to give you as much for a ruby as the Shellton rock store will. This is true for everything but tack. All the tack is the same price no matter where you buy it with one town being the only exception. The price depends on the tack.
2) What stores buy what: The general stores buy most objects, especially if there aren't other shops in the town. Rock stores buy gems and jewelry. The feed stores and equipment store just buy horse feed and horse equipment respectively. If you can buy it there, you can sell it there.
