Found injured by rancher Shep Horgan, Jubal Troop is offered a job as cowhand and soon gains Shep's trust. Mae Horgan, feeling she's been trapped into marriage with Shep, takes a shine to Jubal, although he is more interested in Naomi Hoktor who is travelling with a wagon train camped on Shep's land. Pinky, until now top hand and used to Mae's favours himself, doesn't think much of the new deal and trouble is inevitable. Written by

If you're a cowhand how come you stink of sheep dip?
I hired out to a sheep ranch 'cause it was the only job I could get.
Most cowhands would die before they'd herd sheep.
Show me one.
