publisher) should cover? No.

Short storyline: A colt is born bind, and a pre-teen rancher wants to keep him alive, and not kill him out of mercy.

Notes for the reader: My book was so old, the pages crumbled.

Spoiler alert: Reading the end, you get the feeling that the old man used his horse trader senses to encourage the pre-teen to work really hard to save the colt. He likely knew all along everything the boy did. A heart warming story.
