The following quests are only available when the market is at Silverglade.

Hay’s Not the Only Thing for Horses

ferdinand

Oh, dearest Rita, it’s truly lovely that you’ve come up to see us. You’re a little ray of sunshine sent to brighten up our day, you mark my words! If you’ve got a little spare time, do you think you might help us out with a tiny errand? Ah, wonderful Rita! That’s really lovely of you.

You see, our horses are looking a little bit sad. They’ve been eating hay, hay and only hay for a while now, so clearly they could use a little variation. Couldn’t you ride on over to our old friend Barney who lives away over by the silos and ask him if he has any spare carrots? Our horses really love carrots and they’re always happiest when they’re munching on Barney’s vegetables! Hmm… I wonder what happened last time they’d eaten Barney’s vegetables? I’ve got it in the back of my mind that something weird happened. Meh, my memory isn’t what it used to be, dear Rita. Trot over to Barney and tell him I said hello!

Objectives: Ask Barney for some carrots to give to the horses at the market.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Yummy, yummy, veggies in my tummy.

The Vuvuzela is the Rodent’s Best Frenemy

barney

Oh, no, no, no, it’s horrific! There are little rodents all over my field! I need to get rid of them, but my approach doesn’t seem to be working.. The little beasties are too clever for old Barney. Can’t you give it a go, Rita? It’s not that tricky, but I guess you’d have to be quicker and more cunning than I am if you’re going to have a chance of getting close enough. 

Here, have a look at this: my vuvuzela! A ghastly instrument, but super effective when it comes to scaring the living daylights out of vermin. If you can get close enough to the little good-for-nothings before you blast on my vuvuzela, you’ll see that they run for their lives!

Objectives: Sneak up on the rodents and scare them away by blowing on the vuvuzela.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Approach the rodents from behind, for if they see you, they will jump back down in their holes. When you sneak up on them, use the horn on them to scare them away. When you have rid the field of the rodents, return to Barney.

barney

Haha! What a sight it was to see you sneaking up and blowing the vuvuzela on those little monsters! Thanks a lot Rita!

Carrots to the Horses!

barney

So, was there something in particular you wanted? Carrots for Ferdinand and Eddie?

Why of course! Here’s a huge batch of my best carrots. Tell them I said hello; it’s been far too long since we saw each other!

Objectives: Take the carrots to Ferdinand.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Hopefully the horses will be happy with this.

ferdinand

Ooh, I see you’ve got some carrots with you! The horses are going to be in a much better mood now, that’s for sure.

Horses on the Loose!

ferdinand

Darn it Rita, I can’t believe it’s happened again! All the horses are loose!

Oh goodness gracious, once they’d eaten the carrots they really seemed to lighten up, perhaps a little too much… After only eating hay for such a long time, they got really hyper after tasting such delicious carrots and just bolted away. How could I make the same mistake again!? This happens every time we come to Silverglade. I’m sure they were only play-acting when they looked so down in the dumps; they knew they’d get some tasty carrots from me to cheer them up so perhaps they were just planning to run away all along. 

Look, they’re dashing around here… You can see them, but they don’t seem to be a hurry to come back.

Could you round them up for us, Rita? It’s just a case of finding them; they’ll come right back afterwards. Sometimes their mischief drives me crazy, but if these spicy little moments never happened then everything would get rather boring, don’t you think? 

Good luck Rita, and be sure to have a good look; those horses really can gallop when they feel like it!

Objectives: Find all the horses that are running around Silverglade Village.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 25 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Chase after the horses, and when you get close to them, they will stop. When you have caught all of the horses, return to Ferdinand.

ferdinand

Hey! You did it Rita! All the horses are back in their rightful places. Next time we’re here I’ll see to it that this kind of nonsense doesn’t happen again, I can promise you.

Rent for the Silverglade Horse Market

eddie

Hello Rita! Do you think you could help me with a little errand? I haven’t got time to leave the market just now, but the rent needs to be paid. You’re one of my most trustworthy friends, so I could certainly rely on you to get this envelope of Jorvik Shillings to the Council Man in Silverglade Village. It’ll be light work for a rider of your ability.

You’ll do it? Oh, thank you Rita!

Objectives: Give the envelope containing Jorvik Shillings to the Council Man in Silverglade.

Rewards: 25 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 100 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Ride to the Council Man in Silverglade Village, to give him the rent for the Horse Market.

council_man

Hello there Rita. Good to see you’ve got the rent from Ferdinand and Eddie, thanks a lot. Say hello to them from me!

A Big Thank You from Ferdinand and Eddie

ferdinand

Dearest Rita, you’ve really been a huge help for us here in Silverglade Village. If you hadn’t helped us to find all the horses, we’d have been forced to search for them all night long.

Eddie and I had a little chat earlier on, and we both decided that we wanted to give you a gift, you know, to say thanks for all you’ve done for us. Eddie has been fixing it up and I think she’s finished now. You go talk to her and you’ll get a really lovely present from us, and nope, I’m saying nothing about what it is. That would only spoil the surprise! So long, dear Rita, see you soon.

Objectives: Talk with Eddie at the Horse Market.

Rewards: 150 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP, Banana T-Shirt

Reputation: 500 with Ferdinand’s Horse Market

Speak to Eddie about the gift.

eddie

Hi Rita! Now you get to see what I’ve found for you in our caravan. It’s so lovely, I got it as a birthday present way back when I was a young girl, and I think it’ll look perfect on you. Here you go! See you soon Rita.
