Even Bulls Have Guardian Angels

My bull, 'Amigo', when he was a baby.

Years ago, when the ‘New Age’ movement got into full swing, the idea of angels began being bandied about big time.  Not that angels haven’t been popular since recorded history, but they were once again brought to the forefront during this new open-minded era.

One idea, that maybe WAS kind of new, was that each and every one of us can ask for help from the angels any time we want. Now mind you, according to the ‘rules’, angels are not allowed to help us unless we ask. That’s because this is a free will planet, so they are not to interfere. Only to help when asked.

Wow! What an untapped resource!

So here’s a story.

I started kind of toying with this idea. Asking for convenient parking spaces and such (TIP: for this particular request you do need to ask and plan ahead a bit — 15 minutes or so). Results? A bit inconclusive. Perhaps because I wasn’t sure if it would work, even though I had always believed in angels.

But then one day I had a very big problem.

I had a small herd of cattle on my ranch in Texas, one member of which was a young bull (we’ll call him Domingo) who belonged to the former renter of the ranch house. He was about two (the bull, not the renter), so he was getting pretty big and serious.

Since I had another bully youngster of my own up and coming — Amigo, pictured above — it was definitely time to call in the chips and get Domingo off the ranch. Even though he had been with me since he was four months old, not one dime for Domingo’s feed or care had ever been forthcoming from his owner, a well-known reprobate in the community who seemed to piss everybody off.

I finally made the dreaded phone call to the guy to let him know he HAD to come get his bull. This was one of those people who had a natural knack for baiting you and getting your dander up, no matter how much you swore to yourself you wouldn’t let that happen.

Out he comes, with a hard-nosed cowboy in tow, saying this cowboy and a couple of his hands will be showin’ up soon to round up the cattle, cut out the bull, load him up, and take him off. Macho, macho, macho, all the way!

Well fine.

Except a dear friend, who was a REAL cowboy from the get-go, said: “Leta, don’t let those guys come out here and roust about your cattle! You’ve got a nice, friendly, quiet herd, and if they do the macho cowboy thing they’ll make ’em all crazy!”

So I was concerned. I worried for days. And of course heard nothing from Domingo’s owner, so obviously he was going to wait as long as humanly possible to make something happen.

Dwelling and praying about the situation I suddenly remembered about asking the angels for help. So I did. I asked for Domingo’s guardian angels to help, and mine too, and any particular “bull removing expert angels” that might exist to get in on the act.

Well.

The end result I NEVER could have predicted. Which characteristic (unpredictable results), by the way, I have now found is not untypical of angel-type activity.

About three days after my prayers to the angels, my neighbor called:

“Leta, I think I have your bull over here.” And proceeded to describe Domingo perfectly. Seems Domingo had jumped the fence into the neighbor’s ranch because his cows were in season.

(O.M.G. Domingo was, finally, off my property?! In the most unexpected way possible?!)

I told him who the bull belonged to (the reprobate, whom my neighbor hated with a passion), and my neighbor said,

“Well *@#$&*(@*(&! !!!   I’m pennin’ him up, and callin’___________, and charging him $____________ per day for every @*&(#@(*  day the bull is on my property&*(_#@!”

Needless to say, Domingo was picked up and removed very quickly, and without the need for a macho cowboy roundup disrupting Leta’s herd’s bucolic state of being.

I don’t know what happened to Domingo in the long run, and I hope it was all for the good because he was a really nice bull.

But I do know that after that experience I was SOLD on the ‘ask your angels’ thing and have used it many times since. All with good results.

So just ask the angels for help. You’ll get it!

    Leta,
    This is such a great reminder. With all my farm animals they are always getting into some type of trouble and I find myself asking for help from angels to make things right. Madalyn

      Thanks for your affirmation, Madalyn. Some folks don’t think this is ‘real.’ But WE know it is, don’t we, because we’ve gotten way too much angelic help over the years to doubt it!
