Imagine the worst winter storm you have ever been in. Dark skies overhead interrupted by jagged lightening bolts cutting through the sky and thunder so strong as though someone had set a cannon off right beside you. You would seek immediate shelter and safety. A chestnut mare, alone on a mountain, had to endure the fury of this storm. As she battled the elements, she was coping with the birth pains that signaled her delivery of her fist foal. The colt should never have survived except for the intervention of a loving God who shows compassion for all his creatures. This little colt had a strong will to survive and the heart of a warrior that carried him through the adventures of his life. Ranger, as he is named later, tells his own story knowing he has a sense of purpose. He re-counts his birth and early years coming to rely and trust on humans and also to adjust to other horses that become friend or foe. He has many adventures with his beloved owner as he shares his life with her at her foothill ranch in Three Rivers California. His life is long and full, amazingly so, and at 32 years young he knows it is time to leave for greener pastures. He gets to meet his maker and then knows that his earthly human companion is taken care of after his departure. Be prepared for a tug on your heart from Ranger, the little horse with the big heart!
