This is from the horse collar episode. Ambrosch had borrowed a horse collar. Jim and Jake rode over to fetch it. Ambrosch pretends he had not borrowed such a collar. Ambrosch is angry and brings an old ratty one. There is a physical altercation between Jake and Ambrosch. Antonia tells Jim they are not friends anymore.
