    I liked the story he told about buying a horse that balked frequently, and one that would bolt and run away. He braided the lead of the balking horse into the tail of the run-away. By the time he got them home, they were both broken of their bad habits. The name of his first book is "Horse Tradin'". There were many more after it. Every single one worth the read.
