Cheyenne working for the less than scrupulous Ben Creed as foreman crosses paths with stock owner Thora Flagg who needs help moving her herd to town. She engages Creed in a poker game to win the price to cross his land and Cheyenne.
Ben Creed would like Cheyenne to stay on as his top foreman. They respect each other but Cheyenne doesn't like Creed's methods.

On second thought he stays with Ben to repay him for saving his hide not realizing Ben set up the whole event. Later, while driving a herd of cattle they run into Thora Flagg in a wagon which is overturned when the herd startles the horses pulling the wagon. After Cheyenne helps pull Thora from under the wagon, Ben tells him to help Thora get to where she wants to go.

You're a Whole Lot of Woman Too, if You Don't Mind My Saying So
So says Cheyenne after meeting Thora Flagg, once widowed and once divorced from a gambler as she explains. Cheyenne has just gotten off the trail as foreman with his friend Ben Creed. He refuses to continue on because he realizes Creed is a scoundrel who pays his men a bonus, but then buys drink and holds poker games where he cheats his men out of their wages, forcing them to sign up for another drive. Creed tricks Cheyenne by having him waylaid and then coming to the rescue, so he feels obligated to Creed.
Meanwhile, they come across Thora Flagg who's wagon has overturned with her underneath and help the crusty gal out. Cheyenne soon believes Creed and Thora have a lot in common, especially after she wins Cheyenne's help with her herd in a poker game. She tricks Creed into thinking she's a novice poker player and then cheats him at his own game.
But while Cheyenne admires grit and cleverness, he is floored when the herd he's suppose to help get to market isn't cattle, but sheep!
This story is one of the best of the series...and you must watch until the end to see the final plot twist.
