He lived on a ranch high in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.
He had a whole field full of mares he got to watch after.
He had a best friend that came to visit and ride him every day.
He got to help his rancher round up cattle at least a couple of times a week.
Scratches LOVED his life on the ranch!
WHOA!! What is that? He thought to himself.
Silently creeping through the grass was a large mountain lion!
‘Oh No!!’ What should Scratches do now?
He charged across the field to scare away the lion!
The lion hissed loudly as Scratches got close and crouched down low like he was going to attack!
Scratches reared high up into the air, neighing loudly to scare the lion away!
He stamped his feet again and again and soon the lion turned and ran away.
Scratches had saved his mares and the beautiful little foal that was hiding behind his mom!
