Biography: 

Eck Snopes is one of Flem's cousins, though the narrator tells us that "Flem would skin Eck quick as he would ere a one of us"(168). After Eck helps board and feed the ponies, the Texas man gives him one to help start the bidding. The horse later runs in and out of Mrs. Littlejohn's boarding house, jumping right over Eck's boy's head. Eck finally catches it by tying a rope across a blind lane, but the horse breaks its neck in the process.
