From the same corral that produced the widely loved Horse Tradin’, Ben K. Green has rounded up fifteen new yarns filled with the ornery yet irresistible style that has earned his books a place in classic Western Americana.
Some More Horse Tradin’ recounts the dealings of a whole slew of craggy old-timers and rangy characters. See them match wits as they trade well-bred mares, snorty-like range colts, and used-to-be-bad horses from the tumbleweed plains. Admire the old-time knavery, skill, and salesmanship in such tales as “Gittin’ Even,” “Brethren Horse Traders,” “Mule Schoolin’,” and “Water Treatment and the Sore-Tailed Bronc.” Ride along with Green, and he’ll tell you what he knows about horseflesh--but keep your wits about you, and hang on to your wallet.

This was an excellent book. I greatly enjoyed each and every adventure that Ben K. Green takes you through in the book. In a time where everything is done the easy way it is great to be able to look back and see how things realy used to be done. Through this book you are able to get a very clear picture of the old west. I loved reading about all the different ways the horse traders thought of to skam each other and somehow they both thought they were getting a good deal. I thought this book was great and was not able to put it down once I picked it up. I can't wait to read more by Ben K. Green.
I bought this book for my sister who boards, trains and rides horses for a living. She had read the first book HORSE TRADIN' and said it was one of her all time favorite books ever. She did not know that this book had been written so it seemed like the perfect gift for me to get for her. I am not an animal lover like she is so I have not read it but she just loved the first one and I know she will squeel with delight when she opens this one! And my sister is 60 years old!!
Dr. Ben Green made his living buying, selling and trading horses and mules in Texas through the war years of gas and tire rationing. You can almost hear his Texas twang in his writing which is informative, entertaining and slap-your-knee funny. Horse lovers in particular will enjoy his stories but even folks who have never been seated on a horse will still enjoy his writing. I gave it 5 stars, partially because I have worked with horses and may be slightly influenced by my days of working with horses. It's a great book that I recommend to everyone.
