As Morgan was standing back up to follow height, Lilane leaned forward and bumped her forehead into Morgan's back end, pushing them down onto their knees since they were unable to keep theirself from falling. Morgan turned around, looking Lilane right in her eyes, and then muttered- "Cow." Before managing to get up and get out of her path, fearing another bump now that Lilane had figured out she could somehow continue to be a nuisance today. Morgan could almost have rolled their eyes into oblivion on this one, but they somehow managed to keep from getting too frustrated at her. Eventually, the bespectacled human thought, eventually they would manage to get her to act right and be an excellent mount someday. For now though, it seemed like she was going to be a butt regardless of what Morgan did.
It was time to plant trees anyhow. The human turned to perform that task.
The human had managed to procure four trees whenever they had went out to obtain them. Each little tree was super short, about a foot tall, and they were all the same kind of tree. Each little treelet was sitting in a pot that was made out of terracotta, and Morgan was already frowning at the fact that the tap root was probably not doing very well in these little bitty pots. Morgan was not impressed with the operation so far, but they were here and they had to work this out. Morgan gently cracked each pot open to remove the dirt intact, to keep the roots from having to be harmed possibly by the removal process. Morgan then gently shook the roots out carefully, fluffing them, and then they held each one in the hole that they prepared using the hand shovel, using some of the potting soil in with it as well. Lilane looked on the entire time.
Lilane finally got tired of being a spectator, and instead began to dig around herself, using her foot. Morgan had no idea what she was doing at first, other than being a general nuisance, but soon enough, the darn creature pulled a truffle- one of the ones of low quality but still, a TRUFFLE out of the ground. Morgan turned around to look at first and didn't really note anything odd, and then all of a sudden realized exactly what that was just as she was eating it. "You found... a truffle? Wh-what the heck?" Now that was frustrating, just what kind of a creature randomly pulled a truffle out of the ground? Morgan let out a bit of a chuckle, and went back to work doing the same thing over and over with the little treelets. They sighed as they worked every now and again, until finally the first four trees were in the ground.
Morgan wiped some of the sweat off of their brow with the back of their hand, sighing. Now for the next four trees, if they can grab that many. Before they started on this of course, there was a huge pile of them. There were a few more people around now, but there hadn't been just before. The human figured that there would be some of the trees missing, perhaps most of them. The stood up, and walked past Lilane, who seemed pretty amused with her attempt to dig up as many of those low quality deer truffles as she could. The human was both surprised and really, really not surprised to see that there was still a ton of trees there. People were really lazy, in Morgan's opinion, and this didn't really change their idea about it. They grabbed another armful of trees and moved back over to their spot again.
They continued working with these trees the exact same way that they had with the other trees, and finally, their face streaked a bit with mud, was done. Lilane continued her own activities, practically devouring dear truffles with relish, and Morgan went back out to the never-endingly large pile of tree saplings to grab some more. They continued this for quite a while, continuing the labor of getting the trees into the ground, until finally a whole row was finished. It was time to move Lilane, at least. Morgan went over to her, patted her down her speckled (like a cow) back, and then reached out to untie the lead and hopefully lead her somewhere else. However, the sky was looking heavy; like perhaps it would rain soon... This whole shindig was a good three days long, and today was the first day. Perhaps they would go home today, and come back tomorrow to continue...

Sevyrn: I have two from when they were first released, so I figured why not give it a shot now that there's something to really do with them. Plus breedables. I love breedables.

Riku: Have you read all the updates, Sevryn? You’ve missed a lot, so it’s probably going to be enlightening/exciting.
