We have been waiting with bated breath for Heartland's Season Seven to arrive. I am so happy to report that it is in stock and ready to send.
Set against the stunning vistas of the Alberta Rocky Mountains, Heartland is a sprawling family drama that is loved by millions.
The seventh season of HEARTLAND continues to follow life on the ranch as Amy Fleming (Amber Marshall), her older sister Lou (Michelle Morgan) and their grandfather Jack (Shaun Johnston) deal with the challenges of running the ranch that has been in their family for six generations.
Heartland: The Complete Seventh Season - Horse TV Series - DVD
We have added quite a few new books to the website in the last week. Check out the website for the list of all our new products.
Here are the yarns of a true cowboy for those who have in their blood either a touch of larceny, an affection for the Old West, or better yet, both. These twenty tales add up to a true account of Ben K. Green's experiences around the corrals, livery stables, and wagon yards of the West.
Green was a veterinarian who took down his shingle and went into horse trading, in what he imagined would be retirement. No stranger to the saddle, Green claims to have 'with these bloodshot eyes and gnarled hands measured over seventy thousand horses.' His tales range from tricks to make an old horse seem young (at least until the poor creature died from the side effects of the scam) to a recipe for making a dapple-gray mule from a bucket of paint and a chicken's egg.
So you want to go into the horse business? You can learn the knavery, skill, salesmanship, and pure con man hokum of horse trading here, in a book every westerner or horse fancier should have on hand.
Ben K. Green was a veterinarian who practiced his profession in one of the last big horse countries in North America. When he eventually gave up his practice, he returned to his hometown of Cumby, Texas, where he raised horses and cattle until his death in 1974.

Other Ben K Green books now available:
Some More Horse Tradin’
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.

The Village Horse Doctor: West of the Pecos
Ben K. Green takes us back to the deep Southwest and the never-a-dull-moment years he spent as a practicing horse doctor along the Pecos and the Rio Grande.
With precious little formal schooling but a perfect corral-side manner and plenty of natural wit, Green became the first to hang up a shingle in the trans-Pecos territory. Hear him tell the tales of his struggles with mean stockmen, yellowweed fever, banditos, poison hay, and 'drought'. His canny mix of science and horse sense when treating animals 'that ain't house pets' is 100-proof old time pleasure.
A veterinarian in the far Southwest for much of his life, Ben K. Green retired to ranch in Texas until his death in 1974.
