Spontaneously, I liked the third sentence best, then I read your comment...

feed with, treat to

I don't see the words "wide eddy" anywhere in the above paragraph. Am I going blind?
Neither do I. So don't worry, Romany, your eyesight is okay.

The word order "with a cord around their necks" seems okay to me. But the version in which "the cord" appears second does not really make a big difference, if at all.
Instead of "began" - especially since it it used two times, I would rather use "started". Or change completely into sth.like: ... which in consequence meant that his friend was dragged behind him...
But this is just personal taste.
Hope I could help a little.

My favourite source to look such things up ist the Oxford Learner's Dictionary (OLD). Follow the link and see under + Grammar Point.

I'd like to add that dangling prepositions will rather be found in written language than in spoken English.

The question was if these two sentences grammatically correct.
a. I found this book I think you will like some citations from. I am writing them down for you.
b. I found this collection of short stories I am sure he will appreciate some stories from. I am sending the book to him.
I believe they are.

As far as palapaguy's answer is concerned:
Usage is often different from grammatical correctness.
Remember the McDonald's slogan: "I'm loving it". Grammatically, this ought to be wrong.
