He always had a big wad in his cheek, and when he spit over the side we hoped the wind was in our favor. We held him in awe, since he showed no sign of being that fond of kids, but he was actually a "softy," stopping occasionally, with some lame excuse, like ex- amining a horse's foot, or chang- ing his wad of tobacco. At those times, we would be allowed to pet his horses, with their beauti- ful big eyes, their sweet disposi- tions and pleasant horsey smells.
