Randy finds the horse tangled in a tree and takes the sick horse to Charlie Orwell who is a vet and drunk.

Garth asks Randy to kill the horse but Randy returns him to Charlie who in a drunken stupor frees the horse. When the horse raids the local ranches for mares, Randy, Jody, and Charlie track down the stallion and recapture the mares. Charlie gentles the stallion but Slaughter releases their mounts and shoots Charlie. Randy is forced to ride the stallion for help and Charlie comes to realize his feelings ...
