“Chewin tobacco dribbled down from the corner of the mare’s mouth. She wiped up the spittle with a fetlock and, uh, tossed in a neigh-sigh aside: 'We’re free, over twenty-one, and at least you can vote,' she whinnied. The large huss then puckered up her lips, opened wide and presented me with a look into the chaw morass of mouth and
teeth before spitting a stream of tobacco juice into her glass. I smiled wide; then chuckled: 'Hey, never look a gift horse in the mouth.'* The mare guffawed; then laughed out loud -- a real horse laugh -- and rebutted: 'Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be cowboys.'” **
