In his eighty-plusyears, Max Evans has known, owned, ridden, and been thrown by quite a number of horses. In ""For the Love of a Horse"", Evans shares his favorite horse stories for all to enjoy. As Max explains, ""I wanted a wide range of adventures from another time, with different horses, of different breeds, and a sense of history of those special days."" Max begins with his first horse, Cricket, which he received when he was four years old. At the age of ten, he helped with a horse-drive from far southeast New Mexico, through west Texas, and on to the final destination in Guymon, Oklahoma. Later, PDQ was a horse that seemed very gentle and laid-back, until someone rode him. And then there was Molly, who liked to fly through and around obstacles on coyote hunts. This book is for all those who enjoy reading horse stories as much as Max loves telling them. Saddle up!
