Skyrim Stories: The Eternal Stolen Horse

OXM: Apparently you can buy horses in Skyrim. I've not had this explained to me in-game, and I haven't been in a stable since I got rumbled robbing the one outside Windhelm. So my travel has been on foot or, more often, using the magical power of fast travel.

After a while, I decided to find out what I was missing out on, and just took one from outside the stable in Riften. Slightly to my surprise, nobody seemed to notice this, and I rode off feeling like I had got one over on The Man.

The story is too old to be commented.

Once in awhile, near Windwhelm (near the Battleborn Farm) and to the north near the Shrine of Azura, you will find a dead bandit with a horse mulling over him/her. You can grab/use the horse, but if you stray from it, the horse will go back to its original location.

I don't even bother with horses; with the auto walk button, it's not so much of a chore to walk any more.

Offtopic: Have any of you seen the ghost horse? I tried to initiate contact with it, but something killed me before I could try. :/
