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!" - Chief,  (Jackie's pinto gelding 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 (2007)

Jackie Hutton lives a quiet, but smelly life in Pleasanton Texas.  Cleaning stalls and brushing horses 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'
