    Andy thanks to you and Baxter for that fun interview. I am currently reading Baxter Black's Horseshoes, Cowsocks & Duckfeet, and enjoying it very much. This interview brought me back to my youth and a horse I had that got colic, and as he described, 5 gallons of mineral oil, and 15 hours of walking him, with no relief, I walked him down in the pasture, in the early morning, where my dad put him down. The shot still rings in my mind. I wrote a poem about Pronto. Tender mercies! John Graves
