What's a horse got to do with anything?How in the world can a broken down blue roan named Smoky, a terrified palomino named 'Faith', a snotty black and white pinto called 'The Tesster' and countless other horses change a person's life?Easy. By just doing their best to communicate with people, horses reach out and teach us constantly. Their classroom is a pasture, their lessons desperate. They're funny, serious, and committed to making us learn (and learn well) - how to live in peace with them.'If You Wanna Learn Humility, Buy a Horse' is a collection of short stories for anyone who has loved horses, depended on horses or even been around horses."A great read!!! I laughed, I cried . . . it moved me!" - Grace (Jackie's bay mare who depends on her for food.)"Wow! What a talent! Hutton leaves us begging for more!" - Tesst (Jackie's black and white horse that is prominently mentioned in the book.)"I just wish it was easier to turn the pages." - Vanilla Bean, (Jackie's toy pommeranian.)

About the Author:

Jackie Hutton lives a quiet, but smelly life in Pleasanton Texas. Cleaning stalls and brushing horse tests her husbands devotion routinely, but so far she's managed to just ostracize the neighbors. She has five horses (if miniature horses count) that keep her working constantly, but oddly, still fluffy. (Oh, if obsession could only burn calories!)She's had a couple of things published, but mostly she just writes and blames the big book publishers for not taking risks. Her true friends actually believe this and nod. She is married to Robert, a retired Desert Storm veteran, who is one of the few wise men who enjoy marriage. Her sons, Robert Jr. and Jarred picked good wives and had really pretty grandkids. She is very proud - of the wives. (The boys are good for laughs.)She is presently at work on her next book - 'How To Interpret What Your Animals Say About You Behind Your Back'

Book Description AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Sometimes I m a trainer. It s my job to make them earn their feed by teaching cues and conditioned response. Not, a great trainer . . . the word gifted is not synonymous with me. But I can start a horse on the ground and under saddle half way decent. I am the trainer. I have the power. I am the name that horses tremble with respect upon hearing. Right. Every single horse I have trained has taught me more than I ever taught them. Horses are almost fanatic to communicate with people. They live in a place that really doesn t allow secrets because they exist in a desperate world of survival. Because it really is all about them doing their best not to get into a fight, horses almost explode in an effort to teach wisdom. They offer the chance to see things from a different perspective. If you take the time, you can learn how to stop and think instead of reacting. You can become kinder, more patient. You can end up a better person. Honest. Sure, I m the trainer. But I am the one better for it. Seller Inventory # AAV9781434340986
