In the 'The Gal Who Got Rattled' (the fifth story) many horses trip over some holes in the ground. One is visibly shot and then finished off in mercy.

In the second story a character is put on a horse to be hung, it’s interrupted by a battle scene where he tries to keep the horse in place so he doesn’t hang. After, he is hung but gets shot down after struggling for a while.

Offscreen and inexplicit, but a character hires a prostitute while a third person is in the room. They both undress a little with no nudity, and before they do anything sexual, it jump cuts to afterwards with them both sitting on the bed fully clothed.
