She tells him that she is running away from the horse, and that the hunter will have to protect her from the horse. Just then the horse comes by and Little Red Riding Hood hides behind the hunter.

Little Red Riding Hood realizes that it's just the horse and that it must have eaten her grandmother. Just then Little Red Riding Hood's grandmother arrives, with a postcard she has gotten from the wolf, who is on vacation in The Bahamas. The grandmother then asks the horse why it has her clothes on, to which the horse replies that it was the only way he could keep Little Red Riding Hood from running away from him, and all he wanted was to be friends.
