Baxter Black A Cowful Of Cowboy Poetry Cow Horse Book

Baxter Black A Cowful Of Cowboy Poetry Cow Humorous Horse Book
By Baxter Black
Publisher: Coyote Cowboy Company, 2000, ISBN: 0-939343-30-4
Baxter Black is a cowboy poet and former large animal veterinarian. Baxter says "a cowful is a great sufficiency," and that's just what you'll get in this rich volume of poems, stories, and philosophical observations on every topic of Western interest imaginable - and in every imaginable mood, from quiet and contemplative to hilariously original. Baxter Black can take the most ordinary situation and have you looking at it in a whole new way, laughing all the while. He describes his own writing as "mostly humorous, occasionally political, and accidentally informative," and it would be hard to argue with him on that. A Cowful of Cowboy Poetry, includes thoughts on everything from horses to corporate life. The book's illustrations are by Bob Black, Don Gill, Dave Holl, and Charlie Marsh. Has full color dust jacket. Dedication to Walt & signed by author dated 2002 inside front cover. Comes with a program from the benefit dinner & annnual meeting with Baxter Black that was held May 2, 2002 in York, PA, which is where this was purchased & never read.

Seabiscuit An America Legend By Laura Hillenbrand

Seabiscuit An America Legend Thoroughbred Racing Horse Book

By Laura Hillenbrand
Publisher: Ballantine Books, 2001, ISBN: 0-449-00561-5
Seabiscuit was a rough-hewn, undersized horse with a sad little tail and knees that wouldn't straighten all the way. For two years, he fought his trainers and floundered at the lowest level of racing, misunderstood and mishandled, before his dormant talent was discovered by three men. One was Red Pollard, a failed prizefighter and failing jockey. Another was Tom Smith, The Lone Plainsman, an enigmatic mustang breaker who had come from the vanishing frontier, bearing generations of lost wisdom about the secrets of horses. The third was a cavalry veteran named Charles Howard, a former bicycle repairman who had made a fortune by introducing the automobile to the American West. In the summer of 1936, Howard bought Seabiscuit for a bargain basement price and entrusted him to Smith and Pollard. Using frontier training methods that raised eyebrow on the backstretch, they discovered that beneath the hostility and fear was a gentlemanly horse with keen intelligence, awe inspiring speed, and a ferocious competitive will. Competing in the cruelest years of the Depression, the rags-to-riches horse emerged as an American cultural icon, drawing an immense and fanatical following, inspiring an avalanche of merchandising, and establishing himself as the single biggest news maker of 1938 receiving more coverage than FDR or Hitler. Laura Hillenbrand beautifully renders this breathtaking saga of one horse's journey from also-ran to national luminary. Seabiscuit: An American Legend is an inspiring tale of unlikely heroes, a classic story of three embattled individuals overcoming the odds in the Great Depression. Very minor wear to cover corners from shop handling.

Affirmed The Last Triple Crown Winner Thoroughbred Racing TB Race Horse Book By Lou Sahadi

Affirmed The Last Triple Crown Winner Thoroughbred Racing TB Race Horse Book

By Lou Sahadi
Publisher: St Martins Press 2011 ISBN: 978-0-312-62808-6
In 1978, racing fans witnessed the culmination of an epic rivalry when a horse named Affirmed faced off against the celebrated Alydar and emerged victorious. In this long-overdue biography of Affirmed, veteran sportswriter Lou Sahadi captures the life and spirit of this indomitable horse who twice earned Horse of the Year honors and placed #12 on the Blood-Horse list of "Top 100 Racehorses of the 20th Century." Sahadi chronicles how the initially docile chestnut colt began his stellar rise in 1977. Entering the 1978 season, many experts speculated that Alydar, the latest prize product from the storied Calumet Farm, would prove himself the better horse. Yet under trainer Laz Barrera's careful strategy and the 18 year old reigning Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year jockey Stevie Cauthen, Affirmed bested his rival and mesmerized even the most casual of sports fans. Drawing on interviews with Cauthen, some members of the Wolfson family, and many more, Sahadi delivers fascinating subplots, including that of jockey Laffit Pincay, Jr., and owner Louis Wolfson, the Wall Street financier whose federal conviction led to the resignation of a Supreme Court justice. Telling a story that transcended the Thoroughbred racing world, Affirmed finally gives this courageous horse his due.
