Sam Brown appears at the ranch and sees Joey is having some trouble with Fury. After the horse throws him, he comes to Joey's rescue and examines Fury, finding a splinter stuck in his back. After removing it, Joey is amazed; Fury isn't used to letting strangers touch him! Joey takes Sam into the house for lunch, and he eats heartily. Jim comes in while Pete, the old cook is grumbling about having to feed hobos, and he's even more upset when Jim hires him on the spot to help wrangle a herd. Sam is given some cowboy clothes (he had come wearing dress slacks and a denim jacket and carrying a suitcase) and goes out with Jim to help with the herd; he meets two other wranglers, one of whom is having problems with a lame horse. He pulls the man off the horse and then takes a hoof pick out of his pocket and takes a stone out of the horse's hoof. Jim is amazed; the only other person he has ever seen able to calm an agonized horse is a vet. Later, when he's in town at the sheriff's office, Jim sees a list of wanted criminals and sees Sam on the list. When he returns home he asks Sam about it, and he says he was trying to save a man's life, but he died while under his care. Jim says that maybe a jury wouldn't think that a crime, and just then, he and Sam are called out to the barn to tend Fury. Even though Joey begs him to look at his horse, Sam says he can't, but as he's leaving, he has an attack of conscience and goes back, treating Fury for pneumonia. When Jim's regular vet gets there, he recognizes that Sam has done a terrific job, and says he hopes he can stay around. Sam goes off with the sheriff to stand trial, and is acquitted. He comes back to see Joey, Jim, Pete and Fury and tells them he had been appointed head of Animal Husbandry by the state.
