Don't worry, it'll grow up eventually. These are just things that happen, maybe you repolaced the growing up sequence with something else. Just wait another month.

Why don't you save your current game in a save state and sleep several days just to see if the horse will grow up in your file, then load back your game and play it properly?

I don't know what to say. I've never heard of this happening before. The only thing I can think of is that maybe the horse doesn't grow if you've left the timer on? In the time from when you got the horse to now how much time did you leave the timer on for?

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

I already tried that; saving in a save state and playing it normally for a few days. Still no sign of a horse growing. I guess I could keep playing til Winter and see if anything happens.

I only left the timer on to get my golden hoe and sickle, which took 4 hours.

wait four hours?

Isn't the sickle supposed to take 12 hours and the hoe 24?

I just checked and my "24 hours" hoe is ready after only 12 hours.

What's up with this game o.o Oh well, that's actually a good thing, I don't need to use the timer ever again, yay!

Oh wow, I just had a hurricane followed by an earthquake. Talk about unlucky towns.

Edit: My horse just grew up in the 10th of summer, as it's supposed to do. Maybe you need to wait until the next 10th of summer?

My birthday is on the 10th of Summer...but anyway, I created a restore point and went to bed til Summer 10 year 2 and.....horse is still not grown. Yup, I must've got some glitch. I have no choice now but to start over, and I hope it actually grows up this time :(

All my work is gone :(
I'm thinking maybe I chose to put the timer on too close to the day the horse was supposed to grow and it somehow 'skipped' over the day perhaps and thus my horse never grows. This time I'm going to have them take my sickle/hoe sooner, and then speed up days and see if horse grows.

P.S. You can set the Timer 'slow' or 'fast.' I guess if you choose 'slow,' it really does take 12/24 hours. I chose 'fast.'

OMG. Sorry for the doublepost, but you guys won't believe this!!! I started a new game and went all the way to the end of Spring before I made a restore point. After I made the restore point, I went to bed as soon as I wake up and fast forward to the 10th of summer. The earthquake came and stuff and yes, the horse did grow up this time on the 10th. Yay! So I loaded up my restore point and played through. It was getting closer to the 10th but the earthquake never came!!! It came sooner when I did the bed thing, so I didn't know why it didn't appear this time. I thought oh well, since I'd lose out on the axe and I'd rather have the adult horse. However, I then remembered if I don't get the EQ, I can't win the game as I can't get to the last power berries. I then went to bed a few times to see if the EQ comes later. Anyway, the EQ DID come...on the 10th of summer!!! WTF, and NO, the horse this time DID NOT GROW UP. I went ahead a few days after that and nope, the horse is still the same!! I dunno why this keeps happening to me. I think either going to bed repeatedly or creating a restore point is messing up my games. A walkthrough I was reading said the EQ only comes from the 1st to the 5th, so I dunno why it had to come on the same day the horse is supposed to grow up. Now I have to START OVER AGAIN!!! This is getting very annoying >_>

I'm not going to create restore points or go to bed repeatedly this time. I'll let you know the results.

I would recommend turning off the save states and playing the game the way it was supposed to be played :P

I have even been closing the game with the power button even if I don't have the timer on. I think I'll start to do that with most of my VC games from now on, since it feels more "natural" to start the game from the title screen.

Well I only started using save states when I realized my horse wasn't growing, and wanted to see if it would ever grow.. I never used it before that. No idea if that's what caused my game to mess up, but it's definitely worth looking into.

Update: Okay, on my third playthrough the horse finally grew up on the right date. Everything is fine now. Finally. Now I can play it for real. I need a chicken now.

Hi, does anyone know exactly how fast in game time goes by when you turn the timer on and then don't play the game?
I need to leave the timer on and not play the game for a while in order to get the sickle back from the harvest sprite if i'm correct?
Just kinda worried as to how much of the game in terms of days I will miss by doing this.

Weird, I left my timer on overnight and It had skipped around 10 days, but I did set it on fast.

Edit: I've managed to get the super sickle and super hoe now. It seems setting the timer on fast and then setting the 3DS time forward a couple of hours does the trick and only skips 1 or 2 days.
