The colt was the offspring of a stolen thoroughbred mare turned loose by the thieves. Her colt grew up to love freedom, and Ollie Bently declared when he first saw him “I don’t reckon that colt belongs to anybody.. .but some day he’s going to belong to me.” The colt and the boy fight it out, with manys et backs; they are a well-matched pair.
