I am a man, a husband, a father, and a grandfather. I am a retired neurologist with interest in behavior, a relatively new rancher, and a humanist. I retired from medicine and live at Medicine Spirit Ranch, our cattle ranch near Fredericksburg, Texas. Trudy, my wife of almost 44 years, and I enjoy our quaint German community. I love Border collies with rarely a day passing when I don’t stand in awe of their intelligence and athleticism. We travel, golf, and volunteer in our community.
We have lived, worked, and studied in Minneapolis, London, Moscow, as well as multiple locations throughout Texas. These experiences, no doubt, influence my descriptions and beliefs.
Much of my earlier works were scientific, medical, and advice for persons suffering from or caring for those with neurological disorders. Now I aspire to write for popular audiences, especially describing the wisdom expressed in patient stories, the wonder of Border collies, and the enjoyment of retired life in the Texas Hill Country.
Recently, our barns were featured on the Ride Television Network show “Wild About Barns.” I think Trudy and I look pretty good!
I enjoy your posts…I wanted to get in touch with you regarding a new TV series I am producing called Wild About Barns. It will begin airing on a new network RIDE TV in January 2015. I came across your Ranch in the book Stables by Kathyn Masson. Each episode of Wild About Barns profiles a historic barn, a backyard barn and a show barn. We would really like to profile ya’lls barn for the first season.
Check out our FB page Wild About Barns and like us. We are working on our website now and that will be up in a few months.
Please contact me if you are interested in working with us. We LOVE you ranch and the barns.
Wild About Barns
Your article has brought forward some very original and unique thoughts. I like how you expressed your points in an easy to read format. Thank you for writing such clear and concise material. Good reading.
Dear Dr. Hutton,
I was a medical student at Texas Tech from 1987-1991. I remember distinctly a few lectures you gave us during our freshman year. You are such a great teacher and I’m ordering your book. Since I’m a surgeon I usually read surgeons books but I can’t wait to read yours. In my third year I didn’t get to rotate with you but I spent my time with Dr. Green and the resident Lon Barba. The reason I looked you up is because I’m going to be in Lubbock for a few days and I’m meeting one of my classmates who is a surgeon at Tech and unfortunately he has Parkinson’s Disease. I am a little confused about you however because I thought that a couple of years ago I read your obituary in the Austin paper. I hope the rumors of your passing have been greatly exaggerated!
Great to hear from you. Any reports of my demise are greatly exaggerated, as my wife and I live on a ranch just outside of Fredericksburg, Tx. Am glad to hear of your successful career and greatly appreciate your kind comments. I loved those days at the TTU Med School. Hope you enjoy my book. All the best!
