Lovely gentle story. I enjoyed the unspoken dialogue between donkey and Master. And I loved the last line.

This story is so wonderfully written. It reads so smooth and easy like a cup of soothing tea. Is there something beyond excellent? God bless.

Knowing how long it takes to break an animal to saddle - makes this story doubly amazing. This colt had never been ridden before...and yet knew it's Creator and obeyed without hesitation. Very creative and an Excellent portrayal of the Biblical story of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem. (I'd suggest a footnote scripture reference for those unfamiliar with the Bible story - Luke 19:30-35)

I love how you keep us guessing about the identity of this humble servant until half way through when it dawns on us. Very creative. Great story.

This is a lovely story and I was really caught up in it from beginning to end. Such a wonderful adaptation and it fits the topic so well. Excellent!
What a unique perspective! I loved the part where Jesus gave this donkey a handful of grain from nowhere.
