    Sold the first few boxes of books today before the sale officially opens - and got a check for $1,000 made out directly to the Horses in the Hood.

    Second day update - another $285 in checks, and almost enough cash to cover my TENT COSTS!!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    PS to second day update - one of my friends (who drove up from NC with her husband to help - AND she doesn't really ride, although she hunts with beagles & bassetts and her Aunt is an MB & huntsman for both foot hounds and foxhounds) - just added another $150 check to the stack - making today's total $1,435 for the 2 days so far.

    Today for the sale $1895. Have one person who is coming back and I haven't priced two books...

    I am so sorry I can't be there , but life as a vet and a holiday weekend to boot I just couldnt get the coverage. I was so hoping to be ble to get there and do some "damage" for the caue ( and of course get some Christmas shopping done at the same time.
    Maybe if there is anything left,I can get a sniff some time of the remaining godies.
    Glad it has cooled off for you !!

    Ooh ooh! I want to get on the request list.

    I want the Fly By Night book and its sequel. They have these at my library back home but I have never found them anyplace else. (Of course, I don't know who they're BY, just where they are in the library. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] )

    Also Dark Horse (I think?) by Jean Slaughter Doty.

    No Doty, I don't think.

    Will look for the others - I know I had Working Trot at one time, but who knows now.

    Will give the list to my assistant (AND THE ONLY BB'er TO SHOW UP!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] ) JEANNETTE (formerly ponygrl) (Who is a great person!!!)

    Great job, Weatherford!

    I am so sorry that I'm too far away to come and relieve you of some stock. By the way, Fly By Night is by British author, K.M. Peyton.

    The book with a girl whose uncle dies and leaves her the rougue, Bluebird, and wonderful mare, Gazelle in his will.

    There is a terrible barn fire and Gazelle is killed. She goes on to compete successfully with Bluebird, who "Loffs" her, and is reformed.

    Or another, Dorothy Lyons Copper Khan.

    Another - vaguely remembered from reading years ago. Something involving a horse crazy girl (surprise?) new to the neighborhood and an almost hermit like woman neighbor who has a crazy horse that killed/injured her daughter/relative (she has a round pen or indoor round ring in her barn). I seem to recall a beach...

    ETBTW - you need to buy a copy of the horse story bibliography by Terri Wear. It isn't complete, but pretty good (well, she missed ALICE O'CONNELL - mostly because she neglected to check with us book dealers before publication!) However, it is still good.

    Send me a check to Horses in the Hood for $40 includes shipping), and I will make sure you get a copy. THEN you can look it UP!! LOL

    (email me for particulars.!)

    $1,435 and counting!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Ooooo, I forgot about The Pony Book. If you have two copies of that one, I get the second one!

    Oh also:
    de Nemethy's book
    Steinkraus' newer one (or newer edition)
    Prairie Lady (YA)
    Kickapoo (YA - barrel racing)

    There was a steamy teen romance novel I read in the 80s that I remember being moderately realistic on the horse end. I think it was called "The Thoroughbred."

    You must forgive me, as I haven't been paying much attention to the boards as of late (husband just diagnosed with acute case of Lyme). And I am seeing here mentions of books on horses.
    Can somebody let me know what is going on? Horse books for sale?? I can't miss out, "pant pant". I am a horse book floozy! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]
    It sounds like the proceeds are being donated in cactuskates name??
    I have my checkbook ready-tell me what to do before I cry!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif[/img]
