  • If possible, have at least 8 sims at the ready when you're doing steps 12-13. Yeah, it only says 4 sims but the amount of hours it will take to clean up the trash is very long. 
  • Be ready to shell out some lifestyle points (recommended for busy gamers). The 2-day time limit is very tight IMO especially if you have a job and can't always login into the game to check your progress. 

Once the Raiders of the Lost Artifacts quest is completed,  a new quest will pop up.

18. Call the stables owner back (The mysterious number)- 2 minutes


19. Add a horse to the stable- Go back to the stables and tap the horse icon in the stable. A pop-up menu will show up. Since you haven't unlocked the "Tricks" hobby yet, you will only have access to two horses,  Dappled Grey (15 000 simoleons) and Patches Brown (10 Social Points).




20. Feed the horse- 6 minutes and 5 seconds


And you're done. Congrats. 


If you have finished this quest within the time limit, you will be rewarded with a unicorn painting. It should be in the decorations tab and can be bought for 10, 000 simoleons. 


Commentary: 

This quest sucked because the time limit seems too tight particularly for busy simmers like me. It didn't help that the reward is a lame unicorn painting which does not even come for free after unlocking it. It would have been good if the painting gives 1% inspiration to sims within a 5-meter radius. 

This quest is followed by the Toddlers quest.
