So, my faithful steeds have had a history of, well, draconic incidents recently, and so, when leaving Solace, to head out in search of the Steed Stone recently, it occurred to me that procuring a new Equine conveyance would be wise.
The fine stableman over at The Solitude Stables, near Katla's farm, a trustworthy seeming fellow named Geimund, informed me that his horse was amazing, and availiable for a mere 1000 Septims.
I agreed to his price, and 1000 Septims poorer, was informed that it was 'the one with the Saddle'.
However, the horse with a saddle in this stable does not seem to be interested in turning into a plane or tasting like raisins, or showing me the universe. Hell, this horse isn't even interested in being ridden by me - at least, not if I don't want to be branded an inveterate and unpardonable Horse-Thief by every guard from Solituide to Markarth.
Why don't I own the Horse with the Saddle now? Is there a different horse with a saddle that I paid for? Did it wander off? There are only two stalls at the stable, both are occupied by horses, only one has a saddle, and the ride option for both are in red.
I just want a new pony. :(
