- Will you be reasonable?

I'll get word around

to watch out for a mare-stealer...

That's all I want to know. I come here for a

little action and all I get is a lot of talk.

I'll handle this thing my own way.

- I'm sorry. He doesn't really mean it.

- It's all right. Don't worry about it.

- Carey!

- Coming, Grandpa.

Goodbye, Mr McLaughlin.

Come on, Sundown, let's get outta here.


Huh! Calling me a liar

and sticking up for Thunderhead.

- Why do you have to fight with everybody?

- Me?

- If only you'd stop drinking.

- Stop drinking?

I only take a thimbleful

just to settle my nerves.

If only you would, and start training Sundown

again, then everything would be different.

You took the words right out of my mouth.

That's exactly what I'm gonna

start doing tomorrow - you watch me.

Hello! Pull up a minute.

I got a surprise for you.

- You're the one who's got a surprise coming.

- Hey! Wait a minute!

- I'll see you later, Ken.

- You keep away from those McLaughlins.

Do you think Thunderhead stole the mares?

If he's alive, I'm afraid so. A lot of mares

have been stolen lately besides Beaver's.

What are you gonna do?

If we pick up his trail soon after a mare's

been stolen, we've a good chance of catching him.

Then you'll have to shoot him?

- Yeah.

- I'm afraid that'll break Ken's heart.

- Kenny!

- Hi, Gus!

- How are things in the city?

- Great. I got a surprise in the trailer.

Surprises I like don't come in trailers!

- Ken!

- Hello, Mom. Your skillets.

- Thank you, son.

- Hiya, Dad.

The horses come through in good shape?

Mr McNulty pay you?

- Yes, sir. And have I got a surprise for you.

- What is it this time?

The most wonderful thing happened.

- I met a friend of yours, Whitey Eaton...

- A friend of mine?

- He let me in on a terrific deal.
