"Thank you," the woman replied, smiling a genuine smile at the Rohshin man.
She was impressed with the efforts the Unicorn vassal family - and especially Kiro-san - had made on her behalf - and rather than feeling insulted by being offered a quiet horse, she was grateful.
Just as she was grateful for the silken saddle; yet another kind gesture which the Kitsune would not forget.
Of course, the gesture she appreciated most was the glass work - which had lit up her eyes and smile alike.
She had very carefully put the smaller back within her back pack, wrapping her bedroll and blankets around the package before she had approached the horse.
It was no surprise that the Kitsune shugenja had a fondness for animals, inspired by a deep respect for the animal spirits from Chikushudo. Nonetheless, the woman was certain that this horse would have inspired awe within her regardless of one's upbringing. After all, Unicorn horses were famed in all of Rokugan.
Quietly, she held out her hand to the horse, allowing it to familiarize itself with her scent and presence whilst she studied the animal.
Only when she felt the horse had accepted her, she would take its reigns and lead it outside.
