Snak gra-Bura is an Orc commoner who takes care of the horses at Chestnut Handy Stables outside the Imperial City. When talking to her it becomes quite clear that she did more than take care of the horses. If you have installed the official Horse Armor Pack plugin, she will provide horse armor and may even give you an Old Nag for free.
With no horses left to sell, Snak is more or less unemployed at the stables; she wakes up early at 4am and starts the day with a two-hour breakfast while the other stablehands still sleeps. She then heads outside and spends the entire day loitering around near the corral. At 6pm she heads back inside for another two-hour meal then wanders about until her bedtime at 10pm. When martial law is imposed during Light the Dragonfires she will remain indoors at all times.
When you meet her for the first time she will politely introduce herself, along with her lack of services: "Snak gra-Bura, owner and proprietor. We board horses. And... well... we don't actually sell horses. Anymore, that is." When asked about the Imperial City, she will tell you about the missing horses and obviously lie: "The Chestnut Handy Stables used to sell horses. But they're gone. Our horses. All gone. Big mystery. No idea where they went. [burp]" If you ask her if she actually ate all the horses she will respond: "Add some onion and... wait. I almost walked into that one. No, of course not. That would be wrong. You shouldn't eat horses."
If you turn up without owning a horse she will reluctantly part with an Old Nag. She can outfit any horse you bring her with either Steel or Elven armor: the first set will be free of charge but any subsequent sets will cost you 500 gold.
Brielus Gawey, another worker at the Chestnut Handy Stables, will be more than happy to give you his opinion on what happens when you mix Orcs with horses: "I'm Brielus Gawey. And no, we don't sell horses. But we do eat well. The stables are owned by an Orc. And you know... Orcs and horses." When asked about the Imperial City, he will be a bit more direct about what's happening at the stables: "Sure. Some folks here think horses are for riding. Then again, some of us are Orcs. Snak gra-Bura, she prefers eating stew to riding horses."
- When asked if she actually ate the horses, the subtitles will read: "Add some onion and... wait. I almost walked into that one. No, of course not. That would be wrong. You shouldn't eat horses." but the recorded voice skips the first sentence.
- This bug is fixed by the Unofficial Oblivion DLC Patches.
