Can't reach the bell
In The Great Cow Race, I can't do anything to get that bell to ring in the barn.
I have the wooden spoon but knocking on the frying pans doesn't seem to do much. Moves the pitchfork a little, nothing more.
In a walkthrough, I read that I was supposed to get a metal bar from a barrel that that guy left, but he's still straightening them outside of the bar. I've already convinced everyone except him to bet on the Mystery Cow (looks like I can't convince him in any way) and I'm seriously lost here. I am beginning to suspect that this is a glitch.
I have attached my Auto Save.save (inside a zip file). Please tell me if this is a glitch or if I'm missing something huge.
