GO WEST (1925):
A drifter sells the last of his possessions, keeping only a few trinkets and a picture of his mother. The money buys him only some bread and a sausage ... and then is gone. Unable to find a job in the city, he stows away on a train. He thinks it's going to New York, but it's actually heading west. He sleeps in a barrel but the barrel rolls off the train. He manages to get a job at a cattle ranch, despite having no experience. Meanwhile, a neglected cow named Brown Eyes fails to give milk and is sent out to the field along with the other cattle intended for slaughter. As Friendless tries to figure out how to milk a cow, he's told to go and help the other ranch hands bring in the cattle. Unsuccessful in riding a horse, he falls off and sees Brown Eyes. Noticing her limp, Friendless examines her hoof and removes the rock that had been hurting her. Brown Eyes proceeds to follow Friendless around, saving him from a bull attack. Realizing that he's finally found a companion, Friendless strikes up a friendship with the cow, giving her his blanket at night and attempting to protect her from wild dogs.
