What has she done?  Bobby Jo's parents trusted her to come to the auction to buy a colt.  And now she's spent all her money on an old blue roan.  What will they say?  Even Bobby Jo can't believe what she's done.  But there was just something about that horse that drew her in.  When Cole McCall loses his job at the auction for stopping work to help Bobby Jo load the horse, she feels guilty but really tries not to.  She suggests her father hire him to work on their farm.  With Cole's unrequested help, Bobby Jo sets out to train the horse to be a barrel racer.
