This cowboy with a simple problem; he’s single. His modest solution is to buy a horse — the girlfriend will somehow naturally follow suit.
The people around him aren’t particularly sold by his logic or ambition, but they do tolerate it. After all, a cowboy should have a horse.
In his search for an affordable steed, Vaquero is robbed of his meagre savings by another cowboy (on a horse!). A final indignity for a cowboy with so little of his own.
When the stakes are down, this man may just have it all. A simple cowboy with simple solutions — off to save his future happiness.
