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

Did You Know?
Very loosely inspired by William Shakespeare
's "Othello"--Shep corresponds to Othello, Pinky to Iago and Jubal to Cassio. Naomi's gift of a handkerchief echoes a similar gift from Bianca, but is not used further as a plot device See more
When Jubal first walks into the ranch house to eat breakfast, between two buildings behind him you can just see the front end of a 1940s-era pickup truck. A short time later as Shep walks into the house, the truck is gone. See more
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.
