My Foot's in the Stirrup ... My Pony Won't Stand
by Stephen Bly
Ex-convict Tap and former dance hall girl Pepper want to break with the past, follow their dreams of settling down on their own ranch, and start a family. In fact, baby's on the way. So is trouble with rustlers in Tap's job as brand inspector for cattle and trying to clear himself of murder charges. And how humbling that his new horse won't stop bucking long enough for him to get on and stay.
