Pioneer Trail Horseshoe Tree: Double your money in a year

Apparently, the Money Tree (and Money Bush) in FarmVille brought in quite a bit of money for Zynga, as the company has released a similar feature in Pioneer Trail in the form of the Horseshoe Tree. This Horseshoe Tree is incredibly expensive, but it's also an investment. That is, if you invest the large sum of Horseshoes now, you're guaranteed to receive double your original investment over one year's time, provided that you actively play at least one day a week throughout the next 52 weeks.

To be specific, the Horseshoe Tree can be purchased for 520 Horseshoes. If you purchase Horseshoes for 50% off (a typical sale price in the game), that's still around $30 of real world money for this single tree. However, once you purchase it, you can harvest it once per week to receive 20 Horseshoes with each harvest. This lasts for 52 weeks, or a complete year, meaning that you're eligible to receive 1,040 Horseshoes in total once all is said and done.

There's no saying how long this tree will be available to purchase, so if you're at all interested in this investment deal, make sure to login to your Homestead quickly to take advantage of it. Who knows? If a lot of players snag this deal, perhaps we'll see an additional Horseshoe-doubling feature released in the future, really allowing you to double your money for being loyal to the game. We'll make sure to let you know if that ends up being the case.
