From chapter titled "Jackie Bee"

"If Jackie Bee had been a man instead of a horse, he'd have been the kind of man you'd like to partner up with; the kind of man you'd be proud to call a friend."

High praise indeed, but it is exactly how Duane Walker of Canton, Kan., feels about the big grey stallion with whom he shared 23 years of his life.

When Walker introduced the Jackie Bee line of horses to the AQHA show world in the early 1970s, it was seen by much of the country as a completely new, male-based strain. Walker doesn't disagree with that assessment, but knows that there's a bit more to the story.
