In the early spring of 1886, Charles decided to bring Old Sikes back to the ranch for good. Grabbing his Mexican spurs, bull-whip he had plaited himself, and his fastest horse, he rode out to drive the troublesome Buffalo back to the JA Ranch. Old Sikes had other ideas. He charged Goodnight and chased him all the way back to the ranch. Goodnight was running for his life.
