“What's this, ya'll ain't scared of a little rain and lightning are ya?” Cookie rebukes the horses, “You boys are suppose to be rough n' tough horses not no panty waists.” Just as his voice trailed off he heard howling in the background.
“Oh, I see. You boys ain't 'fraid of no lightning, you just knows there's wolves close by. Now, that's different!”
Taking his pistol, Cookie shoots a few times into the air making the horses even more jittery. The wolves scatter.
Cookie calms the horses and gives them each a carrot.
Just another night on the trail.
