As the two powerfully built ponies spoke, Applejack made her way in fast and found a place for her to seat. She wanted to get off of her hooves for a small second and get down to brass tacks, something she was sure that Tempest could appreciate.
“Well, sit down a spell and we'll get ta that,” Applejack said as she took a seat, placing Zap on the table. He hovered over to his uncle, pawing at him and trying to crawl around the massive red stallion, desiring greatly to chew on his golden mane while saying 'yup, yup, eyep, yup'. That would provide Applejack enough time to discuss business with Tempest. The guest had cleaned up after herself whih was good enough by Applejack's estimation. She reckoned it was more of a impulse after being in your own for so long, though having an army at your beck and call afterwards seemed like it might sap a bit of that. No matter. Applejack was just happy to be able to help her and hopefully be there to keep an eye on the mare and ensure she doesn't experience any slide back towards the well of cruelty she had drank from for so long. It was important that Tempest not feel like she was alone on her journey towards redemption, and while Applejack was by no means arrogant enough to believe she was the best option, she was the one here and now. Tempest would get the best Applejack had to offer.
“So, Ah've been thinkin' a bit about what y'all be doin' here. Truth be told sugarcube Ah'm sure you could do anythin ya set yer mind to. But Ah wanna ease you in. So first we'll round up them hogs a bit and we'll show you how its done. After that we need to do some sortin' and then we'll clean the batch and make some applesauce and jam and such. That should take tha majority of tha day, an' then we'll have some dinner," Applejack said as she went to go pull out a small map of the farm and wave Tempest over. "We'll spend tha majority of tha day near the north fields an' silo after tha hogtyin' is finished. Since we don't wanna hurt them piggies we'll show ya how ta hogtie all proper like," she nodded. Hopefully Tempest could get her aggression out without causing harm to the little piglets and such. A mare known for not involving herself with half-measures would hopefully learn the good and honest virtues of restraint and managing your power.
