An exciting new visitor has come to Moorland. Speak to Jenna to see if she knows more.

A New Horse for May

jenna2

Hey Rita! Have you heard that we’ve got a new horse at Moorland Stables?

The horse belongs to May’s cousin, but May’s promised to take care of him for a few days.

I’ve got no idea what May’s cousin is called… Oh, right, you mean what’s the horse’s name? Haha!

I’m afraid I don’t know that either. Sphinx? Nah. Blinks? Mm, nope. Jinx? Nah, I can’t remember.

What I do know is that he’s so cheeky and adorable! You and Summerblaze should stop by and say hello before he goes home again. Like I say, I don’t know how long he’ll be here, but talk to May. She knows more.

Objectives: Ask May about the new horse.

Reputation: 5 with Moorland Stable

Speak to May by the stable and ask her about her adorable new guest.

may

OH NO! No, no, no!

What do you want? I haven’t got time to talk…

Mind Your Hooves and Feet…

may

I’m sorry Rita…

I don’t mean to be mean, but it’s chaos here right now. Total chaos.

A new horse?

Mm, that’s right. Well, not so much new, more I’m just looking after my cousin’s horse Lynx for a few days.

Really though, I’d love to stay and chat but I’ve got a little… Well, actually a massive problem. The three horses that are usually here seem to have run away. Sigh.

Seriously though, you’re not gonna believe what happened. I’d just taken Lynx into the stable when something went wrong. I don’t know if he was scared or just was causing a fuss or whatever. In any case, he managed to freak the other horses out and in all the fuss, one of them kicked over a glass bowl that happened to be just lying around on the floor. 

So not only do we have three runaway horses, but the whole place is covered in bits of glass! Great huh? Hmmm…

As luck would have it, Josh helped out. He took Lynx with him away from here so that I could get on with clearing up all the glass and look out for the other horses.

Why was there a glass bowl in the stable?

Well, yeah, that was my fault, I’d brought it with me to give it to Jenna. She saw it on a picture I uploaded to Jinstacam, and she fell in love with it.

Since I had two the same, I thought I could give her one of them. When Lynx arrived, I needed to put it down pretty fast and then there was all the distraction, so I didn’t have a chance to put it anywhere safe.

UGH! Why do I have to be so stupid?! I should’ve been more careful. I guess there’s not much I can do about it now though. The most important thing is to get rid of all this glass so that nobody hurts themselves.

You want to help?

Awwh, thanks so much! How lovely!

Take the brush over by the wall behind me and seep up the little shards of glass in the stable while I take care of the glass that got outside.

Be careful though, and make sure you and Summerblaze don’t cut yourselves. These little splinters of glass can be really sharp…

Objectives: Sweep up the glass on the floor in the stable and then talk to May.

Use the broom from your inventory to clean up the glass, then speak to May when you are finished.

Runaway Stable Horses

How nice to have swept up all the bits of glass. Imagine getting one of them stuck in your foot! Ugh, I get the shivers just thinking about it.

Now we need to get the horses home as well; they can’t have got too far.

Aaaaa! Why do I have to be so clumsy, Rita?!

Sigh… Would you be able to ride out and look for them? You’ve already got Summerblaze all saddled and ready.

Thanks! Seriously, I owe you one for this.

Take these sugar lumps with you. Use them to get the runaway horses to follow you home.

Objectives: Use the sugar cubes to get the three runaway horses to follow you back to the stable, then report back to May.

Use the sugar from your inventory to get the horses to start walking, then walk with them back to the stable. When you have returned all three horses, speak to May.

Whew! 

Great, now all the horses are back. Thanks ever so much for your help, you really saved the day!

Hope There’s No Glass in Their Hooves!

may

Excellent! You found all the horses!

Sigh…

Of course, we need to check the horses’ hooves and make sure they didn’t pick up any glass in there. If they did, then they could get a pretty horrible injury…

I’m so nervous, I can hardly look. Rita, you seem to have remarkably sharp vision. Like a wonderful eagle. Could you please look at the hooves?

Thanks! I really, really, reaaaaally hope there’s nothing in there.

Here, take my hoof pick and brush, that way you can check them out nice and gently.

Objectives: Examine the horses’ hooves to see if any splinters of glass got stuck in them.

Dismount your horse to examine each of the horses in the stable. Report to May that one of horses did not escape unharmed.

One of the horses has glass in its hoof? Poor thing!

Mrs Holdsworth’s Healing Ointment

may

Argh! I’m so annoyed with myself. I should’ve just given that bowl straight to Jenna or at least put it down in a safer place…

Ah well, what can we do? We’ll have to help the poor thing somehow.

I know! Mrs Holdsworth has a special ointment that’s almost magic!

I’ve used it before, you just rub it in where you’ve been injured and it helps ease any pain and stops infections! Helps the healing process, as well…

I’ve never used the ointment on a horse, but would you be able to ride over and ask her for some so we can give it a try?

Awesome, thanks Rita! While you’re off getting the ointment, I’ll look after this poor thing and clean out his hoof. It must be so painful for him…!

Objectives: Ask Mrs Holdsworth for some of her ointment.

Rewards: 5 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Mrs Holdsworth has all the best recipes!

Herbs Growing by the Shoreline

mrs_holdsworth

Oh no! What’s that you say? One of the horses at the stable has stepped on a glass splinter? Poor thing.

Yes, I do have a recipe for a healing ointment! If you help me get the ingredients together, I can make a batch for you.

I don’t have the recipe to hand, but if I remember rightly, we’ll need beach crocuses.

The beach crocus grows by the water and has small, pretty pink flowers.

Ride down to the beach behind my house and take a look there.

If you get started with the flowers, I’ll look for the recipe and see what else we need.

Objectives: Find three beach crocuses and take them with you to Mrs Holdsworth.

Dandelion Juice Sets Your Powers Loose!

mrs_holdsworth

While you were away, I found the recipe for the ointment May asked for. My grandma wrote it down for me after I managed to cut myself on a sharp rock when I was swimming in the lake. That was a while ago now though, haha!

Nope! Enough old memories, now let’s get to work. We’ve got beach crocuses, so what else do we need now?

Hmm…

Dandelions! We need dandelions!

Could you get some dandelions? We need dandelions! Dandelions Rita! While you get the dandelions, I’ll prepare these beach crocuses.

Objectives: Gather seven dandelions for Mrs Holdsworth.

Ride around Mrs Holdsworth’s house and collect the dandelion flowers that you find, then return to her when you have found enough of them.

mrs_holdsworth

That was fast! Now I just need to make up the ointment.

It could take a while, but I know it’s urgent and that May needs it as soon as possible. If you just hold on a little while…

Check on Lynx

may

Awesome! Now I can take care of this little sickie right here.

Thanks for all your help, Rita. It was total chaos for real, and you helped. All because Lynx was…

LYNX!! I totally forgot about him! This is really unlike me.

I need to get to Josh! He was so kind to offer to look after Lynx and now I’ve just taken advantage. I should go and see him right now but I’ve got to stay here and take here of this poor fella with his poorly hoof…

Please, Rita, couldn’t you go to Josh and get Lynx? Conrad Marsdeen the blacksmith has promised to reshoe Lynx for me, so it’d be awesome if you could take him there afterwards. Please? It’d be incredible if you could…

Nice! Thanks so much! I seriously owe you one after all this. Haha!

Objectives: Talk to Josh.

Speak to Josh by his pole bending course outside the stable.

It’s great you came Rita. I hear May doesn’t have much time, she’s always got so much to do.

In any case, here’s the horse everyone’s talking about! Rita, allow me to introduce Lynx!

Lynx for New Shoes

josh2

Isn’t he handsome? Haha, a truly proud and cheeky fella, this one!

I guess May told you what happened? Glass and horses everywhere! That’s why I took Lynx here.

In any case, I guess May’s busy and asked you to take Lynx to the blacksmith?

Cool! I’d totally have helped out, but I’ve got a few other things I need to be getting on with today. 

Never mind, Lynx needs new shoes and the smith has promised to fix him up. Now I’ll leave Lynx to you, so you can take him over to Conrad.

We can chat a little more some other time, I hope! Good luck!

Who’s this handsome fellow? is it Lynx?

A Loaded Packhorse

conrad_marsdeen

May told me about Lynx. Apparently he needs new shoes, and of course I’m happy to help her fix him up!

Oh, you’d like to help too? Well, Rita, that’s just lovely of you!

According to May, Lynx is a lovely hose with a little bit of a naughty side, so it’s best I keep an eye on him. I hope it won’t be too much trouble getting his shoes on.

Hmm… That’ll have to be something I worry about later.

But since you want to help, you could do me a favor and ride over to get two sacks: those ones that are lying over by the wall there…? They’re pretty heavy so be careful as you lift them. Once you’ve got them, you can drop them off here in front of the house.

Thanks ever so much!

Objectives: Fetch two sacks from the pile by the wall, and place them outside the blacksmith’s house, then chat to him.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 15 XP

Reputation: 10 with Moorland Stable

The sacks are so heavy that you can only carry one at a time, so you will have to make two trips to collect both of them near the house. When you have both sacks set down, speak to Conrad again.

conrad_marsdeen

Thanks so much Rita! 

It’s been great you’ve been able to help me.

Wisecracker…

conrad_marsdeen

Lynx is clearly a bit of a wisecracker…

Ha! I’ve got my eye on you now, Lynx!

I left him on his own for just a few seconds and you can guess what this joker did in the meantime…

First he picked up my box of nails, and luckily he didn’t eat any up, so you don’t need to worry about that.

After he picked up the box, he followed me. The whole time he was shaking his head so that the nails flew all over the place.

It wasn’t long before I caught on to what he was doing, but it was already too late, so now there are nails left, right, and center, spread out all over the ground.

Would you be able to help me gather them all up, Rita? We can’t leave them lying around… Imagine if some poor horse just trampled on one?!

Objectives: Collect all the nails Lynx spread out, then return to the smith.

Someone needs to teach this horse some manners!

Did you find all the nails?

Thank you ever so much Rita! Now we don’t need to worry about anybody stepping on them and getting hurt.
