Lone Ranger’s horse gets overheated

The Lone Ranger and Tonto are sitting in a bar in Texas on one of the hottest days on record and sit down to drink a beer. After a few minutes, a big tall cowboy walks in and says, “Who owns the big white horse outside?”

The Lone Ranger stands up, hitches his gun belt, and says, “I do … why?”

The cowboy looks at the Lone Ranger and says, “I just thought you’d like to know that your horse is just about dead from the heat.”

The Lone Ranger and Tonto rush outside and sure enough, Silver is ready to die from heat exhaustion. The Lone Ranger gets the horse some water and soon Silver is starting to feel a little better. The Lone Ranger turns to Tonto and says, “Tonto, I want you to run around Silver and see if you can create enough of a breeze to make him feel better.”

Tonto says, “Yes, Kemosabe,” and takes off running circles around Silver.  Not able to do anything but wait, the Lone Ranger returns to the bar to finish his drink. A few minutes later, another cowboy struts into the bar and asks, “Who owns that big white horse outside?”

The Lone Ranger stands again, and says, “I do, what’s wrong with him this time?”

The cowboy looks him in the eye and says … “Nothing, but you left your Injun running.”
