Who Owns the Horses
26 April 2012 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

On the prairie, Matt and Chester encounter an unfriendly man (Randell) with two striking thoroughbred horses. Matt's suspicious but has nothing to go on. Later, in Dodge, they encounter the same man dressed now as a dude and friendly as heck. He claims he owns the horses and offers some proof, but Matt's still suspicious. Then two roughnecks arrive in town, claiming the horses are stolen. So, what's going on?

Excellent John Meston script that keeps the viewer guessing, with a good turn from actor Randell. Ending is rather unexpected in more ways than one. King-sized co-star of Bonanza series, Dan Blocker, gets an early supporting role. Also, catch Chester wrestling in the background with a tough steak. It's a cute little bit of byplay.
