Gold Hill is running out of money, so when a cowboy drops by and offers to buy and old horse name Laddy, Fr. Parker sells it for $15. But he doesn't know that Laddie is the kids favorite and doesn't not knowing the kids attachment to the horse. The kids hatch a plan to go save Laddie and take off after the rustlers. After Mae and Moses find out about the plan, Moses catches up with the kids. They talk him into going to talk to the rustlers. But he finds out that they are stealing horses and is beaten for it. After waiting a while for Moses to return and he doesn't they find him at a ladies house near death. Lizette goes to Jackson for the sheriff, while the rest of the kids go after Laddie. Written by

The area that the rustlers rest up at, and the children catch up to them, is the same area as the Pilot opening scene with the horses. See more
Whereas most places in the world lightning comes before thunder, apparently at Gold Hill, which can be seen in the opening scene, thunder comes just before the associated lightning. Furthermore, a few far away lightning strikes (indicated by flashes that were not as bright) had simultaneous thunder or thunder before the strike, rather than having thunder come seconds later like in the real world.
