I'm always looking for good horse books, both fiction and non.
Smoky The Cowhorse, was my childhood favorite, as were several in the "Famous Horse stories Series'.
For working in the tobacco fields all summer, I used to get $50 whole dollars from my parents, end of season. With those funds I was expected t buy my school supplies, but always kept enough to buy another book in that series
Unfortunately, my mother gave those books away, along with all of my Silver , lone Ranger, Champion, Fury and Rin Tin Tin comics, while I was at college
Don't even want to know what they might be worth today!
I did find some of those books since, and bought them again. Thus, I have :
Beyond Rope and Fence
Tick Tock and Jim
Kentucy Derby Winner
Frog, the Horse That Knew no Master
Blue Grass Champion
Mountain Pony and the Elkhorn Mystery
Countless other horse books, besides those from that series
If you want to read something really entertaining, I have the books, Horse Tradin, and more Horse Tradin, by Ben Greene
Had a lot of laughs and learned quite a bit of the tricks used in the past, in the business of trading horses and mules
