    I remember the first time my mustang, Boo, bucked me off. We were riding along through the sagebrush, following a cowboy friend of mine, Dave Johnston. I wouldn’t let Boo put his head down to munch the spring grass, so he threw a temper tantrum. I stayed on for maybe four or five good bucks, but then he dumped me.
