Upset, Blue is advised by Victoria to prove to the men he is still willing to do the the work they do. The advice backfires when they pull a prank on Blue. After making them install posts for a fence as punishment, he becomes too lax. He lets them take off early so they leave the ranch unattended to party at Tucson. Blue goes after them making it easy for Miguel and his band to steal the stallion which he has always wanted. Big John returns to find the stallion gone and Blue with the three hands in jail due to a fight. Big John is steamed and takes it out on Blue who decides to go after the stallion alone...
