During the Civil War, the Yankees raided the Tom Nuckolls farm once and took one of his horses, but they did leave him something in return. At that time General Joseph Hooker was in command of the Union forces. The horse they left with Tom was a beautiful white horse which he renamed "Old Joe Hooker". Old Joe lived to a ripe old age--and was always immaculate. But there was a reason for that: Uncle Tom always kept a fence rail laying across Old Joe's stall so he couldn't lay down and get himself dirty. To brush and curry Old Joe wasn't a chore that must be done; it was a ritual that must be observed like washing one's hands or combing one's hair.---Anecdote told to Ellis Howard Dale Gallimore by his grandfather, Riley Emerson Gallimore.
