After Eric challenges Caitlin to a bike race down Flat Top Canyon, she accepts, but loses control of the bike and falls off the edge. After getting up, she quickly notices that the rabid wolf, which has been seen around the area by the locals, is right in front of her. Soon, the stallion that she saved from the trap appears and scare off the wolf. When Jim attempts to shoot the stallion, Caitlin is convinced that he is trying to kill it and makes him stop. After the wolf appears and the stallion once again runs it off, Dori decides that the horse must be rabid and attempts to shoot it with a tranquilizer gun, like Jim tried earlier. Caitlin convinces Dori to bring the horse back to their ranch and it is soon discovered that the horse, in fact, is not rabid. Dori then allows Caitlin to keep the horse and she names him Bandit after a horse that was in a book her mother used to read to her when she was little.
