horse....Wow!! Does this hit close to home and my heart. My old horse Paint became my protector and our daughter's even before she was born. I could walk in the pasture with him and our other horses while pregnant and he protecting me then....once our little girl came along and we walked every night with the horses he never left our side and wouldn't allow the other horses to get close!! I love and miss him every day! He's an unforgettable part of our family who is dearly missed.
