After a satisfying meal, Jingles spots an old friend from the war. The old cavalry Colonel invites them to his horse ranch. Is his foreman looking for trouble with Bill? With trouble hanging in the air, Bill and Jingles are fearless as they accept the invitation to the Chandler ranch.
At the ranch, Bill is greeted by sir Reginald, the colonel’s valet. Our heroes learn the colonel is dead. It seems that Curly, the foreman, has some explaining to do. Gun play and fist fights are ripe to explode at a moments notice. What is Curly trying too hide? Does he really have a letter that deeds him the ranch? Bill figures horses are smarter than people, and sets out to find out what the colonel’s horse can tell him.
the bad news is the gang is aware that Bill is on to them. The good news is the colonel is found alive. The key to surviving a dangerous situation is the iron door that holds our heroes captive. Even if they do, there’s the matter of that gang of coyotes to corral, but Bill may know how to finish on top.
