Spirit observes as his herd travels through the countryside, noting how their horses seem to age at a slower rate than usual and speculates whether humans chasing after them could also be horses; particularly one soldier whose facial hair quickly transforms from mustache to sideburns at random moments. He finds this particularly puzzling.
