 - Speak with Fado and he will ask if Link can help herd the goats into the barn. There are 10 of them in all and it really isn't too hard. Just ride around with Epona and when Link gets near a goat while on his horse they will run away. Link can press A to do a whoop, which gets the goats moving quicker. Use this technique when the goats are moving towards the barn. Do not follow the goats individually into the barn, but just guide them towards the barn first. If Link follows a goat for a long time, it will get riled up and knock Link off of Epona. Now finish the job and lead the goats closer to the barn and they'll go inside.

 - Run forward and speak with Hanch who is staring up at a beehive. You'll learn that he is a bit disgruntled at the moment. The family cat has gone missing and today is the day to stock up the shop. The bee hive contains bee larva that can be useful at the shop. Ignore this for now.

 - Walk near the river and you'll see Uli looking rather upset. She mentions that her husband left early in the morning. The reason she is upset is because she is missing her cradle.

 - Turn around and run back in the direction of Link's house. There is a man on a higher ledge who calls over to Link if he comes close enough. Climb the vines and speak with him and he'll point out a cat that is starting into the water. The man here is Jaggle, the father of Malo and Talo. He mentions that the cat might be actually trying to catch a fish but laughs it off. He then mentions the grass on a nearby area and says that he has seen you use it before.

In the distant view over the stream you will notice there is a monkey jumping around in an area. Point the hawk over and send it flying.

 - The monkey is actually carrying a cradle and the hawk will take it from him and bring it back over to Link.

 - Jump back over to the roof of the house and then down to the ground. If you accidentally drop the cradle in the water, swim and push it in the open and then have the hawk retrieve it once again. Carry the cradle over to Uli and she is delighted that you found it. She remembers she had something to give to you and asks Link to carry the cradle back to her house. Follow her as she walks ever so slowly to her house. Once you get there she will give Link the fishing rod. Colin made the rod so it is a bit unpolished.

 - Walk across the bridge in the center of the map to get to the west part of the village. The house that you see here is Jaggle and Pergie's house, the parents of Malo and Talo. Enter the house and speak with Pergie and you'll find out that her husband has been working on a shield to give to Rusl. Leave the house.

 - Walk on over to the water that is behind the house and you'll see a cat staring into the water. Use the minus button to equip the fishing rod. Stand near the water and use the fishing rod to cast a line into the water. You'll notice a stick like item attached to the end of the fishing line which is known as a bobber. Once you see that it beginning to sink underwater for a short time, quickly pull back on the wiimote. You don't need to actually do anything to real in the fish other than just keep the wiimote pulled back. Eventually you will reel in your first fish.

 - Once you enter the house speak with Sera. She tells Link the story of how her cat caught a fish and calls the cat a genius. She is in a good mood so she offers Link some milk in a bottle. The milk isn't too important, but the bottle is now Link's to keep. Speak to her some more and then you can look around her shop. The milk and bee larva aren't important, but the slingshot is and it costs 30 rupees. You most likely don't have that type of money now so just leave the house.

 - Climb up the small vines nearby where Jaggle was standing. Jump to the second platform and use the grass to call over a hawk. Aim the hawk in the direction where Hanch is standing. Just above Hanch there is a large vine with a beehive near the top of it. Aim the hawk at the beehive and let it loose. It will knock down the beehive allowing Link to climb up.

Aim the hawk carefully.

 - Run on over and climb the long vine. Alternatively you could have headbutt the beehive or even used the slingshot if you got it before hand. However, doing so from a close range will lead to hylian hornets flying your way. Once you reach the top slowly climb across the small tree branch and get the blue rupee and the yellow rupee for a total of 15 rupees.

 - You'll still need a few more rupees to reach the 30 needed for the slingshot. Run around to the village and break some of the pumpkins that are growing around in the small gardens. Link can also run through tall grassy areas on the west wide of the village to find a few more rupees. Also on the west side, climb up a ladder and some crates to get to the roof of Mayor Bo's house. (The house is one at the southwest part of the village). From here climb another ladder to get to the top of the house to find another yellow rupee.

Aim for the cucco and the hawk will bring it over to you. Now look at the higher platform at the southwest portion of the village and you'll see a sparkling yellow rupee.

The slingshot can hold up to 50 pellets. Bee Larva can be stored in an empty bottle. There is no need to purchase it since Link can grab some bee larva from the knocked over beehive. With slingshot in hand, head back north towards Link's house.

 - Leave the house and speak with the three kids and they are all really excited about the slingshot. They'll setup five targets and two scarecrows for Link to aim at for target practice. Aim the slingshot and hit all 7 of them and the kids will all be impressed. It is quite humorous to see the kids interact with each other. Beth isn't interested at first but then is impressed with Link.

 - Afterwards they'll want Link to show off his skills with the sword, performing various sword techniques. Talo and Beth will take turns explaining the various attacks and it is hilarious seeing their reactions once Link masters them, especially from Talo. You will learn the horizontal slice, vertical slice, stab, spin attack, and the jump attack.

 - Link can use the bottle he has and scoop up some of the soup that Coro is boiling up. The soup is known as nasty soup and it is Coro's special recipe. It really makes no sense to do so, since the nasty soup actually takes away a heart from Link when he uses it.

 - If you speak with Coro once again, he will ask how your oil level is doing. For just 20 rupees he offers to either refuel your lantern or fill a bottle with lantern oil. It's always best to fill a bottle unless you have no fuel in the lantern at all.

 - The next scene we see is back in the Ordon Ranch and it is the next day. Fado approaches Link and reminds him that it is almost time for Link to go. He suggests that we finish up early at the Ranch. Pick up the horseshoe grass nearby and call over Epona. Climb on top of Epona to get started. Herd the 20 goats and then jump over the gate back to Ordon Village.

 - You'll immediately speak with Ilia and Mayor Bo. Ilia will spot an injury on Epona's leg and complain that Link wasn't taking good care of Epona. She then walks off with Epona, taking her back to the forest spring. Take control of Link and if you speak to the Mayor once again, a goat will come running out of Ordon Ranch. Just stand in front of it and Press and hold A to stop the goat in its place. Leave town and run on over to the Ordon spring just passed Link's house.

 - In his way, Link bumps into Colin, Talo, and Malo. Talo attempts to lie about yesterday, but then realizes that Colin told Rusl about them. After some small talk let Talo have your wooden sword. Talo makes another hilarious yell of happiness. Colin thanks you for getting rid of them and then he runs towards the spring.

 - Continue towards the spring to meet up with Ilia. Once you arrive, you'll notice the gate has been locked and Ilia won't let you enter. Colin tells you to sneak through the secret hole on the side of the pond. Turn around and head back toward the village but before actually going into the village look along the left side of the wall. You'll notice a small crawl space. Crawl through it and you'll find some rupees and eventually reach the pond.
