Zooey Pinkerton is the only daughter of a wealthy cattle and horse rancher. A tomboy at heart, Zooey can ride and shoot with the best of their ranch hands. The Palominos they raise, are some of the most sought after horses around. While Andrew Pinkerton worked hard, he had a penitent for playing harder and loved to drink and gamble. At times his excessive gambling caused him to lose large amounts of money. Money that he would borrow from the loan sharks in town…but he always managed to pay back. That is, until he puts the ranch up as collateral and the outlaws decide they want it instead of the money.


He stood out and stared at the newest lot of foals. He was mesmerized watching them at play, nipping and running as carefree as the wind. He pulled his hat down over his eyes and wiped imaginary dirt off his shirt with a large, calloused hand. “If only we could all be so free. Life is never free. We all have to pay our debts.” He sighed heavily and turned toward the main house. 

“Pops! Hey Pops, wait up!” 
Andrew looked up to see Zooey walking with her favourite Chocolate Palomino, Gypsy. Zooey’s blue eyes were bright, and her pale, freckled cheeks were flushed from a late afternoon ride. Her reddish blonde hair was dishevelled and her jeans and boots were covered in mud.
