Starting the Colt
by Jan Young
In this sequel to Jan Young's coming-of-age story, The Orange Slipknot, 12-year-old Ben Lucas strives to balance his desire to gain his father's approval with his need to follow his own convictions. Ben finally has a colt to start and is learning a gentler way to do it. Can he buck out some colts to please his dad, whose ways with a horse are rough, or is he "man" enough to follow his own heart?
