As near as she can figure out, Osiris would have been with the rest of 
the company somewhere near that mound of fresh earth.  It's not easy to 
tell, but it's about the right direction and distance away.

As the sound of the hooves, Alex can estimate that they are around two 
hundred feet away at this point, coming from further into the forest; 
due east of hers and Lady Frost's position.  As they approach, Alex can 
identify that one of the set of hoofs has a metallic ring to it; either 
a very oddly shoed horse or perhaps a cybernetic or robotic one.
