Download and read online Wild Cow Tales in PDF and EPUB In thirteen stories full of rope burns and brush scratches, the author of the classic Horse Tradin’ tells of the days when he made a specialty of catching wild cows. Ben K. Green calls himself a “stove-up old cowboy,” and readers of this book will learn soon enough where the broken bones came from. Green tells of his adventures with wild steers, sharing with readers the years he worked in thorny brush and canyon country delivering those animals that were too wily or too wild for the normal roundup. Finding them was hard, even dangerous, work. Few cowboys looked for such chores. Green declares, “I got real good at it, but of course in those days I didn’t know any better.”

Seems trouble always follows Stud, and the new Sheriff Billings will have to deal with those problems. Miss Sally is not sure if she is glad to see Stud. It has been about eight years since he left town and broke her heart as he said, "I've business to take care of." Now he is back and she is confused as to her true feelings for this whiskey guzzling gambler and man about town. Perhaps the Reverend Robert (Brother Rob) McKinley can help out. He tells Stud that he has never delivered babies, but does know how to pray. He's rather adept at handling a Colt .45 as well. Then there is that mysterious woman in black who affectionately addresses the bachelor preacher as, "Robbie Dear," and tells him, "The children miss you." Despite his struggles, can Brother Rob, with the Lord's help, tame this wild town? Only time will tell.

Download and read online Village Horse Doctor in PDF and EPUB In the inimitable yarn-spinning fashion of Horse Tradin’ and Wild Cow Tales, Ben K. (Doc) Green now takes us back with him to the deep Southwest and the never-a-dull-moment years he spent as practicing horse doctor—working out of Fort Stockton, Texas—along the Pecos and the Rio Grande, in one of the last big “horse countries” of North America. With precious little formal schooling, but with a perfect (if sometimes profane) corralside manner and plenty of natural wit, Doc became the first to hang up a shingle out there in the trans-Pecos country. And he didn’t start small! The territory he had for his practice was 420 miles north and south by 360 miles east and west. And he covered that territory by all means known to man—shank’s mare, horseback, buckboard, and (his standby for long hauls) a beat-up old coupe on whose body panels he kept his books in chalk. To go with Doc on his rounds, visiting his “patients,” is a nostalgic and hilarious journey into a spacious yesterday—and a liberal education in the kind of horse and cow savvy of which precious little remains in the modern world. As a horseman it was a savvy he came by naturally. But perhaps he learned most from his own research: his own book on horse confirmation, privately published in several printings, is still a bible among practical horsemen; his research in his own laboratory on horse colors and pigmentation has made him an expert on what makes a “strawberry roan” or a “coyote dun.” But the meat of Ben Green’s books is in his yarns. To hear him tell the tales of his struggles with mean and friendly stockmen, yellowweed fever, banditos, poison hay, and “drouth”—to say nothing of his canny mix of science and horse sense when treating animals “that ain’t house pets”—is a 100-proof old-time pleasure.

Nun, sie sind alle Teil unserer heutigen Welt. Und in dieser Welt macht sich eine junge Kuh namens Elsie auf, etwas an ihrem Schicksal zu ändern. Gemeinsam mit einem zum Judentum konvertierten Schwein und dem wild plappernden Truthahn Tom begibt sie sich auf eine Abenteuerreise, in deren Verlauf der Leser viel Wahres über die Menschen erfährt. Eine saukuhle Fabel, geschrieben von einem saucoolen Autor. Elsie ist eine junge Kuh, und eine glückliche dazu! Sie verbringt ihre langen, ereignislosen Tage mit Essen, Schlummern und Plaudereien mit ihrer besten Freundin Mallory. Doch eines Nachts schleichen sich Elsie und Mallory von ihrer Weide und müssen durch das Fenster des Bauernhofs mit ansehen, was der leuchtende Schachtelgott (so nennen sie den Fernseher) über »industrielle Mastbetriebe« offenbart. Elsies heile Welt ist in ihren Grundfesten erschüttert. Für sie gibt es nur eine Lösung: Sie muss in eine bessere, sichere Welt flüchten. Und so bildet sich ein kunterbuntes Trio, bestehend aus Elsie, Jerry – Verzeihung, Shalom –, einem thoralesenden Schwein, das vor Kurzem zum Judentum konvertiert ist, und Tom, einem (zumindest in seinen Augen) charmanten Truthahn, der nicht fliegen, dafür aber mit dem Schnabel ein iPhone bedienen kann. Die drei begeben sich auf eine abenteuerliche Reise, in der sie eine Menge über die Welt, in der wir leben, erfahren.
