Cal Kroeger, his four sons, and daughter live in the mountains and have claimed all wild horses there as theirs even though they are not branded or it is considered a legal claim. Judge Garth sends The Virginian and a group of hands to bring in a herd of horses for sale to the Army. As The Virginian expects the Kroegers see them and try to take the horses through intimidation, landslides, burning corrals, and scaring off four hands leaving four Shiloh men. When this does not work, Cal decides to offer to go halves on the heard in return for his family's help when the weather starts to turn bad early. The Virginian accepts the deal but realizing Cal is not to be trusted tries to persuade the boys that they should reconsider any plans Cal has to steal the herd. In the meantime Mildred Kroeger takes a shine to Trampas when he tries to be friends with her as he feels she is being mistreated by Cal. This leads to further tensions in the group.
