The Lone Ranger and Tonto have just spent a month riding through the desert before landing up at Prickly Gulch Creek where they go into the saloon for a much-needed drink.
They’ve only been in there a few minutes when a man runs in asking if anyone owns a big white horse.
“That’s mine,” replies the Lone Ranger.
“Is there anything wrong?”
“Sure is, the animals collapsed,” says the man.
The Lone Ranger and Tonto go outside to see poor Silver lying prostrate on the ground, but after giving him some
water he seems to revive a bit.
The Lone Ranger turns to Tonto and says,
“Will you just run around him for a few minutes so he can feel a breeze and that’ll soon put him right.”
Tonto starts to run around Silver while the Lone Ranger goes back inside to finish his drink.
A moment later another man rushes in asking who owns the white horse outside.
“Bloody hell,” says the Lone Ranger.
“That’s mine, now what’s wrong?”
“Oh your horse is alright,” says the man,
“but you’ve left your injun running.”
