Buck

Roller Rink Rules "Buck: The Plight of a Pryor Mountain Mustang"

 

The plight of too many wild horses in the US today is dismal, as exemplified in this story of Buck. He is a full-grown, young adult, buckskin-colored mustang who slipped through the cracks of the precarious BLM wild horse management system in Wyoming.

 

Less than a week after capture, Buck endures participating in a frightening rodeo wild horse race, then was put up for adoption and mistreated when ignorant cowboys try abusive methods to "break" him instead of taking time to gentle and train him.

 

A young lady wrangler tries her round-pen method of teaching him, but after all Buckís been through, will he ever be able to trust humans again? Or, what else lies in store for him if he canít be trained?

 

"Buck" is available now, $12.95, at Amazon.com and other online booksellers. You may also purchase an autographed copy for $12.95 plus shipping (U.S. only) from this website.
