This is a brief quest which begins when you return to your longhouse in Ravensthorpe to complete Reporting on East Anglia.
When you reach the longhouse you’ll hear Holger and Rowan arguing in front of Randvi. Approach Randvi to hear what all the fuss is about. Randvi will ask you to preside over the dispute, an act which angers Dag, but he’ll soon shuffle off.
Rowan will describe how Holger has a history of using his tools without permission, and now he’s taken the practice too far by using the tail hair from Rowan’s finest horse to make a brush for his painting, taking it without consent. Rowan insists that he be compensated, while Holger mounts an enviable defence of his artistic pursuits.
You’ll need to listen to both sides of the argument from Rowan and Holger before you come to a decision. It doesn’t matter who you decide is in the right, so go with what feels best to you. There will be no significant consequences. You’ll be treated to a brief exchange between Rowan and Holger when the quest completes, so be sure to stick around for that.
After the quest, you will be able to see the horse in question at the stables. It will be without hair whenever you see it, and you can even ride it!
