Glenda Buckmier brings her grandson’s imaginary horse adventure to life

At six years old, Johnny Bob, aka John Robert, was narrating entertaining tales for anyone that would listen. His audience typically consisted of his grandmother, Glenda Buckmier. Now, the two share one of Johnny Bob’s greatest stories in “A Horse Goes to the Store: Johnny Bob Adventures.”

“A Horse Goes to the Store” is the first book in the Johnny Bob Adventures Series. Featuring 26 colorful pages, the narrative introduces readers to Dusty—a lovable farm horse who lives on Farmer Bill Green’s farm. Dusty is usually a happy horse. However, on this one particular day, he realizes his shoes are far too small and they’re causing him extreme pain.

He decides to embark on a shopping trip so that he can purchase new shoes that fit, as well as apples, carrots and the special treat of SnickerPoodles. Unfortunately, things do not go as planned when Dusty and Johnny Bob meet at the store and, instead, chaos erupts.

“When Johnny Bob saw a beautiful portrait of a horse while at the store, he immediately started building a story around the character of Dusty,” Buckmier said. “I added in my own experiences of life on a rural farm, and A Horse Goes to the Store naturally came to life.”
