Synopsis for "Six Guns and Thundering Hoofs!"

Tex Taylor rides from the El Paso shore to the town of Plains City, Texas for a bite to eat at the local saloon. Suddenly an old man named Able bursts in. He accuses a man named Nevers of sneaking mouldy oats to his horse for his boss Cleg. When Nevers strikes the old man, Tex gets involved batting the man aside with a punch and shooting Nevers' gun out of his hand. Nevers then flees the saloon. Able explains to Tex that Cleg is a big horse breeder in town. He and Cleg are to race their best horses against one another for a big purse that Able hopes to use to pay off a note that he owes. Cleg enters that saloon and explains to Tex that if Able does not pay his marker, everything that Able owns, including his prized colt is claimed by Cleg. Cleg then tells Able that he has until noon to pay his mortgage, which dismays Able because the race is not until 1:00. Tex tells Able that he'll get a bank loan on his behalf to pay the amount so that he can race. When Cleg tries to take a swing at Tex for getting involved in something that is not his affair, the cowboy easily bests him in a fist fight. Cleg vows to get revenge and skirts away. Tex then tells Able not to worry, that he's going to the bank to get the money.

However, as Tex is passing through an alleyway back from the bank, he is attacked from behind and is knocked out by a gun butt to the back of the head. The men then rob Taylor of his money and flee the scene. When Tex comes around he realizes that he has been robbed and suspects that Cleg had a hand in it. He finds a broken spur on the ground and believes he can use it to find out who robbed him. Taylor then goes into the saloon and meets with Cleg and Nevers and accuses Nevers or robbing him. When Nevers denies it, Taylor knocks him out and finds his stolen wallet on the crooked ranch hand's person. Taylor then challenges Cleg to a bet: Able's colt against his horse, the winner gets controls the outcome of Able's mortgage. When Cleg hesitates, Taylor gets him to agree by calling him a yellow coward. As Taylor goes to the stable to find Able, someone tries to shoot at him, but he gets away. He finds Able knocked out and revives him and they find that someone drove a nail into the hoof of his horse, making it lame for at least a week. In order to get around the contract, that Able has to ride his own horse, Taylor temporarily sells his horse Fury over to Able so it can be used in the race, with Tex riding it.

At the race, Cleg tries to call off the race on a technicality, but with the contract of ownership between Tex and Able, he has no grounds and has to race or forfeit. The race is on and although Cleg tries to knock Tex off his horse, Taylor wins the race. When Cleg tries to gun down Taylor, Tex is a faster draw and shoots Cleg dead. With the race over, Able uses the money to cancel his mortgage and believes he can breed the finest horses in the region. He thanks Tex who rides off into the sunset.

Synopsis for "Boothill Showdown for an Outlaw Buster!"

Outside Pop Gordon's Small Rafter G Ranch is Slash Farren and his outlaws, who plan on taking the property as their hideout and using it to keep the cattle they have stolen. Slash Farren and his gang burst in as the Gordons are sitting down for dinner, and gun down Gordon's two eldest sons Slim and Lem. Farren forces the surviving family to house his gang.

The gang then rides off to the Rocking Arrow ranch to rustle the cattle there to store at the Small Rafter G. The following day the owner of the Rocking Arrow learns of the theft but finds no trace of the rustlers. He rides out to Dobe City to get the sheriff and comes across Tex Taylor along the way, who is also travelling into Dobe City. Along the way, the owner of the Rocking Arrow tells Tex about the theft of his cattle. He wonders if his neighbour Pop Gordon also lost some cattle when suddenly they spot him riding in a wagon with another man. When they ask Pop if he was thieved as well, Pop tells them now and quickly departs. Thinking that Pop was acting suspicious, Tex spots a rope trailing down behind the wagon and recognizes it as a sign that something isn't right.

That night Tex Taylor rides out to the Small Rafter G Ranch and snoops around. In the cattle pen he finds cattle that have the Rocking Arrow's brands on them. He is spotted by one of Slash Farren's men on sentry duty but quickly knocks him out and ties him up in the barn. Spying in one of the windows, he overhears Slash tell his men that they intend to hide out and sell the cattle for a fortune. When he sends another man to check on the sentry, Tex easily subdues this man as well. When neither man comes back, Slash decides to go out looking himself with one of his men and orders the rest to kill the Gordon's if they try anything. As Slash and his minion check the barn, Tex rushes to the house and gets the drop on the gang inside and with the help of the Gordon family manages to subdue Slash and his minion when they rush back to the house to see what's going on.

Later when the sheriff arrives, they ask how Tex figure out they were in trouble and tells them that he spotted the rope dangling from the wagon. Tex explains that "long rope" is a slang term for a cattle rustler and realized what the message was and came to help.

Synopsis for "The Trail of the Stalking Killer!"

Along the foothills of Monte De Cristo Mountains, the sheriff is on a trail of a grizzle bear that has been attacking cattle that the locals have dubbed "Three Toes". Unable to track the bear down, the sheriff calls in his old friend Tex Taylor to try and eliminate the bear problem. Tex arrives and gladly takes up the task.

He succeeds in tracking down Three Toes and is about to shoot the bear when somebody takes a shot at him, and scares the bear off. The shooter gets the drop on Tex and introduces himself as Jed Coleman. Coleman explains that he cannot allow him to kill Three Toes. He explains that he was run off his property by a rancher named Ned Klein and that Three Toes has caused Klein a lot of trouble and wants to see him suffer a bit for it. Tex explains that the bear needs to stop because it could become a man killer and Jed realizes that perhaps he had been acting poorly and the two set off to find the bear.

Three Toes meanwhile has picked up the scent of some cattle and plots towards Ned Klein's ranch. There Ned informs his daughter that their prize steer -- to sold and shipped that day -- has broken out of the pen. With none of the ranch hands out, Ned decides to go out and get the steer before Three Toes can get at it. Not wanting her father to go out alone, Ned's daughter convinces him to let her join along.

Three Toes comes across the steer and attacks it, the battle attracting the attention of Tex Taylor and Jed. The pair come at the bear and Tex manages to wound it. The bear leaves the steer alone and races at the gunslinger who is able to gun it down before it can attack. With the steer saved and Three Toes dead, Tex Taylor convinces Ned Klein to return Jed's land to him and then rides off into the sunset once again.
