Buckskin Books got its name from my beautiful buckskin horse, Paco. As a quarterhorse-thoroughbred cross, he was registered in the appendix of the Quarterhorse Registry. He was a big boy--gentle, and sweet. He spent part of his life as a cow horse, so he was probably "rode hard and put away wet" many times. He handled his age well until, in April, 2014, when he turned 28. Problems began to arise and compound one on top of the other until I could no longer watch him struggle. I said goodbye to him on May 27, 2014.
