Synopsis
Pa admonishes Billy for having buzzed and stampeded neighbor Jim Thorbel's beef herd. Billy agrees to fly business only. Billy avoids 50 wild mustangs Jeff & crew herd to the trap-corral. The plane's shadow stampedes the herd. Billy sees a rider thrown from his mount into the stampede. Billy dives at the leading mares, who swerve into Jeff, who dives to ground. Stallion leaps. Jeff fumes. Billy descends, apologizes, invites Jeff as he air-herds the herd. Jeff sees a plane equals profits, asks Billy to teach him. Billy is delighted, as now he can buzz horse while keeping his word to Pa.
