Use the Yak Lasso on Wild Townlong Yaks, then fight against them to see if they are suitable for Bluesaddle.

Provided item:  [Yak Lasso]


I can't find a single good yak here. ALL the yaks are bad!

Some are too stinky, some too fight-y, others just scared.

You look like a lucky <race>. Here, take a lasso. See if you can find a good yak for me.


You will receive: 11g and  [Ruthers' Harness]


See? I told you! No good yaks.


Well, well! A good yak!

Tell you what, <name>. I take this GOOD yak, and you can do whatever you want with this bad, bad one.
