When sales get slow – common wisdom says it’s time to do a giveaway.
‘Impressive Bravado’ is a short story (7k words) about Dr. Katie McCarty DVM. She’s a young veterinarian, fresh out of Ohio State University. She gets an early morning all call from Deputy Sheriff Shallamon concerning the unauthorized gelding (neutering) of a show horse named “Impressive Bravado.”
Katie and Shallamon go to Hopkins’ Stables. They encounter a ‘horse whisperer’ who calls herself ‘Aquitania’ and claims she can talk to horses. They also discover unsafe practices that have put the young girls at the barn in danger.
Katie looks into the incident – discovering a deep divide in horse show cliques that could explain the ‘attack’ on Bravado. However, Katie ends up wrestling with a berserk stallion – barely getting the animal under control after he kicks his owner, shattering her leg.
