Walk on crops, rocks, and wood
This glitch allows you to walk on top of crops, rocks, and wood, and you normally can not. To do this, you need to have your grown horse and either a sheep or a cow.
Place your cow or sheep next to a crop, small rock, or piece of wood. The object has to be positioned in such a way that you can normally jump over it by running.
Next, get on your horse, and go to the side of the crop/rock/wood that is opposite of the sheep or cow.
Lastly, run towards the cow or sheep, and your horse will attempt to jump over the object. But, the horse will stop, and stay on top of the object. You can now walk on top of any crops, rocks, or wood that are next to that piece.
When you get off of your horse while on top of an object, you will 'slide' in the opposite direction you were facing until you are in an area normally accessable. If you want to walk on top of the objects again, you have to start over.

Make the wish to double profits (option 3). The day will end. You then have until 5PM to ship as many things as you can. When Zack comes, he'll double your profits for Fall 11.
