The Neverending Story
Sigh... OK Tommie, let me break this down for you.
Horse (noun) - a large, solid-hoofed, herbivorous quadruped, Equus caballus, domesticated since prehistoric times, bred in a number of varieties, and used for carrying or pulling loads, for riding, and for racing.
Ride (verb) - to sit on and manage a horse or other animal in motion; be carried on the back of an animal.
Jack Riley (noun) - a man, physically indistinguishable from any other man in the world, who is kind of a dick, let's be honest.
I'm not sure why Tommie is so confused by the fact that this eccentric guy who took her and her fawn in would run off somewhere on his horse. ("But he's always been so reliable! He's never left in the past 3 days I've been here!") But I figured she might just literally not understand what Carol is saying? That might explain some of it?
