Just heard Baxter Black passed away. He was a very entertaining person. I got to shake hands with him a number of times and he called Lisa about building a pair of chaps for him. 
He will truly be missed!!

Always enjoyed him. Saw him live a couple of times. I have his first book . I think it’s called Get in the pickup. Referencing his cattle dog . I think another early one , Roper ,Rider and a heck of a windmill man. I could see myself in many of the subjects he wrote about.

Fond memories.

His sense of humor, wit and personality.

Common sense everyday man.

Baxter you made me smile and laugh so many times.

Rest In Peace sir.

Out here in the East not much of his work was easily accessible. I definitely enjoyed what I did find of his.

I think I have most of his books and a number of his old cassette tapes. 
Like was mentioned, a number of times he could have been talking about what I was doing.

Heard him live at the National FFA convention in the late 90’s.  I have a number of his books also.  One of my favorites of his poems was the legend of the cow attack.  He will be missed.

I remember listening to him on our local radio station all the way back to the mid-1980s. Seemed like a guy that used a lot of common sense to solve a lot of problems....there's a lesson there for all of us to learn. And to be able to use humor to wrap it all up....just added to the total package. I remember reading a book of his poetry called "Croutons on a Cowpie", or something like that, many years ago. 

He offered more common sense than all 535 members of today's Congress could collectively.

Dr. Black, you will be sorely missed. RIP
