Baxter Black: Coyote Cowboy Observations
-There’s always time to pet your dog.
-If a feller doesn’t trim his own horse’s feet, he’s got too many horses or not enough time.
-Some people do what they’ve gotta do to live where they wanna live. Others live where they have to live to be what they want to be.
-If the reader can’t understand what the poet is tryin’ to say, it’s not the reader’s fault.
-Sometimes gentle pressure is better than jerkin’ as hard as you can. Kinda like pickin’ up a bull’s nose.
-The consultant’s motto: You can’t have all your hands in one pocket.
-People like David Duke and Louis Farrakhan are head and tail of the same bad penny.

-I observed to a man in New York that I was surprised that they had so many cows and so much farming. He said, “Son, this is where it started.”
