This fellow will automatically appear in your game on Spring 9th of your first year, when he visits your farm to deliver a cow that Dunhill got for you. After that, he will move into the red-colored building next to Hanna's General Store. On Mondays through Thursdays he will set up an animal shop in the northwest corner of the village area, between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm.

Neil looks like he is an unfriendly person, but that's just due to his lack of social skills. Deep down, he just really wants some friends but his threatening appearance tends to keep people away. Neil has a great fondness for farm animals; in fact, he even likes all the wild animals too.

He also has an interest in music, but unfortunately he doesn't participate in the Fall season Music Festival.

» You are playing as the girl main character
» Neil has 5000 Friendship Points or more
» Neil is inside his house

A customer is visiting Neil's house, but he seems rather annoyed. Neil refuses to sell to him! The customer gets angry, exclaims that he'll never buy from Neil again, and then storms out. Neil tells you to leave him alone, as you have nothing to do with it. He finally breaks down and explains that the man use to be a customer of his, who came here to complain about a cow that Neil sold him. The man says the cow became sick after Neil sold it to him, and so he believes Neil did it on purpose. When Neil asked the man how he was caring for the cow, it turns out the man wasn't doing a very good job. That's when they started arguing.

You walk into Neil's house and notice that Rod is there. He was just walking by with his dog and stopped by to visit, but he's forgotten something at home and so has to leave. Rod tells you that Neil is inside and then leaves.

Neil doesn't notice that you've arrived and starts talking to the dog, kindly assuring him that Rod is going to be right back. The dog notices that you're there and walks over to you. Neil is surprised to see you and asks how long you've been standing there. You didn't see him doing anything, did you?
