It's slowly dawned on me that Tonto must be the Lone Ranger's aboriginal sidekick. We're looking for a horse of a different color.
All I know about Tonto is a playground joke. He and the Lone Ranger are riding along an unfrequented byway when Tonto raises his hand in warning, dismounts and puts his ear to the ground. Many riders, he says. Sixty five, riding bareback, a mile and a half along the trail and headed this way. Sounds like the Apache braves are off the reservation looking for scalps. Goodness, says the Lone Ranger, or words to that effect - how can we escape? To which Tonto looks up and replies What do you mean "we", paleface?
