Synopsis for "The Outlaw Breed!"

The Western Kid is participating in a rodeo and his horse Whirlwind catches the eye of Sime Walker, a New York rodeo owner who orders his men to get the horse for him by any means so he can use it as an attraction. After the rodeo, the Kid puts Whirlwind up for the night and leaves Lightning on guard while he goes and visits his friend Dave, the local sheriff. The discussion, incidentally enough, turns to Sime Walker, whom the Western Kid knows for his crooked ways and tells Dave that he has set up a trap for him should he cause any trouble while he is in town. Suddenly, Lightning starts barking and Tex matter-of-factly tells Dave that his horse has been stolen, and shocks Dave by doing nothing. Tex explains that Lightning was given orders to follow the horse thieves and then lead them to their hideout later. Tex also knows that Whirlwind will not take being stolen so well either, as Sime was responsible for slaughtering several horses including Whirlwind's sire. However he worries that should Whirlwind kill Sime it might make him go outlaw once again.

Sure enough at Sime's mountain hideout, when Whirlwind is brought before him the horse begins to buck and cause trouble. Sime is reminded of a horse he once met years ago and orders Whirlwind locked up in the corral. Later, Lightning returns to the Western Kid and Dave and head off, they both race to Sime's hideout. Meanwhile, Whirlwind recalls how Sime killed his sire and then charges at him, kicking down his cabin and sending Sime running. When the Kid and Dave arrive at the scene they spot Whirlwind chasing after Sime. Soon enough, Sime is caught between Whirlwind and Lightning and realizes that escape is futile and surrenders.
