Matt Dillon, US Marshall, was riding towards Dodge City when his horse got its hoof caught in a frozen doghole and broke its leg. He had to shoot it. Carrying the saddle, he began his long walk to Dodge City, close to forty miles away. He had been walking for about an hour when he saw a tall thin stranger, on a taller and thinner horse, riding up from the way that he had come.
