Library Journal - Library JournalThese are two of a handful of books Green released in the 1970s in which he recalled his years as a Texas veterinarian. The books are full of colloquial language and tall yarns about horses, mules, and all that cowboy stuff. Think of him as a Western James Herriot. Each volume contains a handful of stories with simple illustrations. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Some More Horse Tradin' based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
A fellow horse person who was raised in Oklahoma suggested I read this book. My father in law and husband were Auctioneers and Horse Traders and this was like going down the road listening to their experiences. The chapters were not too long but yet you realized after reading each of them that a lot had happened and in most cases it sounded very familiar. Being an animal lover, all aspects of this group of short stories just summed up Ken Green's life. It was a treasure of friendships both with the horses he bought and sold and the people he dealt with in doing so. Sometimes he had to go the extra mile with a particular horse/horses to get them ready to sell, but he had lots of good ideas that seemed to always work. Once again, I thought it was great and plan on reading some of his other books as well. One of the chapters I liked the best was entitled "The Shield Mares" which told of a group of mares he bought from The Shield Ranch and some very interesting things resulting from that purchase. Enjoy!
This book is a great read. I can really relate with Mr. Green's stories. They are wonderful. I grew up reading these books.
