A great story. I think you could need a little help with punctuation, but all in all, I enjoyed it very much.

I love your phrase, "the ol' Guardian, self appointed of the field." This is a great account of how God uses even our animals for His Providence in our lives. Your story is excellent on many levels.

I'm a sucker for animal stories and I loved Trigger. Animals are so much more than we give them credit for and thank you for giving Trigger his due.

Great story, it made me cry. If you could get someone to help you clean up the technical part of the writing it would be even better.

Your story made a lasting impression. I was reading Psalm 91 this morning and thought of Guardian and how he protected the new calf. Thanks again.
A very touching story. I loved the dialect you used. It seemed to fit perfectly. I look forward to reading more of your work. Good job.

Farming/ranching isn't always "glamorous" :) as you describe the mud here. I enjoyed your story of calf and adopted mother. Maybe Trigger will be one of the horses riden by the army of the Lord in Revelation 19:14.

Awww, poor Trigger! What a good horse, laying down his life for the little calf. I don't know as God sends back animals as guardian angels, but I liked the sweet story of the farmer's love for his horse. I liked his hillbilly accent too. "Dag nabbit!" ;)
