    The explanation for the given answer is that the question is a play on words. It asks how it is possible for the cowboy to come back on Friday after staying for three days, implying that there is a contradiction. However, the answer reveals that the horse's name is Friday, indicating that the cowboy simply rode the horse back to the hotel on Friday. This explanation resolves the apparent contradiction and provides a clever twist to the question.
