    He grabs a hammer and asks Red Pony book to leave, though he refuses. They all follow the trials of Jody Tiflin, however, as he progresses through the rites of passage from young boy to young man. The action has commenced; now Steinbeck is giving us a sense of cinematic perspective on the Tiflin farm itself. In his curiosity, he asked Billy Buck as well, but he too replied that there was nothing special about the mountains. This is unnatural. On a night shortly following the surgery, despite Jody's worries, beset by fatigue, he once again falls asleep while caring for the pony.

    The morning after his arrival, Carl Tiflin complains about Grandfather's stories at the breakfast table: "Why can't he Red Pony book it, now it's done? He is a weathered, middle-aged man who has been with the Tiflins for a long time; it would seem to most people that he is almost part of the family, yet he remains separate and apart. Respectfully, Grandfather rejects the apology and tells Carl he might be right. He never allowed any shooting near the house for fear the quail might go away. Although he feels "an uncertainty in the air," the buzzards do not seem to Jody to be a part of it. The thing had to have a head.

    The thing had to have a head. Shortly after the procedure, Red Pony book pony escapes from the farm. The following morning, Jody is routinely awakened by the triangle and excitedly throws on his clothes and darts to the kitchen where he is ordered to accompany his father and Billy Buck after breakfast. Jody is so awed at the pony's magnificence that he decides to name him Gabilan, after the grassy and oak-dotted Gabilan Mountains that border the Salinas Valley ranch. They all follow the trials of Jody Tiflin, however, as he progresses through the rites of passage from young boy to young man. Despite Carl Tiflin's coldness, both Billy Buck and Jody are captivated and sympathetic towards old Gitano and his dying wish.
