Already said ďonce rodeo gets in your blood, itís hard to give it upĒ. Very very true. Riding bulls got in my blood when I was young and it has never left and Iím 26 now, helped me get through college without having to get a job to pay for living expenses. Praying for your sons continued progress and speedy recovery. An extremely strong young man and a role model I think a lot of us can look to as well as others around his age!

Continued prayers....
Yes, JT we bunked together that hunt.

Your son is standing beside Bo and Clay is at the other end.

They grow up fast.

He's just been working and going to PT. He doesn't slow down long enough for me to talk to him much. I've thought about hiring a 18 year old girl to be a decoy, so I can get to see him every now and then. LOL. I'm going to get back to working on his birthday present this weekend. I'll post up some pic when I get it done. Here is a hint of what it will be. All hand made.

Hunter is in the middle! That was a great hunt!

So glad to hear Clay is doing well. I saw him at graduation and he was looking good!! I was surprised he was driving himself around already, but that is Clay for you!

We some good news from Clay yesterday. He says he plans on returning to Santa Fe for his senior year. I was a little worried he might try and just get his GED. I'm glad he wants to face his fears head on. I know its going to be hard but I feel like he will be a better man for it. Maybe even a inspiration for some of the younger kids. Please continue to pray to God for his guidance while Clay learns his way through this.

Yessir will be praying for Clay regularly between now and the start of school! I also will put him on the prayer list in my Bible Study class... Some real prayer warriors in that group! Keep us posted!

Lord God in Heaven, You know what Clay has gone through already. He's one of Yours Lord. We ask you to give him the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Sampson, and the compassion for You Lord as Your Servant David! Continue Your work in him and make him a powerful testimony for You. Give him the drive and willingness to be a role model for his classmates as he serves You Lord in all of this. Clay is our very own hero Lord, make him known to his friends and school and community as Your Servant and Testimony. We ask this in the power name of Your Son who gave Himself up for us, Jesus Christ our Savior, Amen.

Keep us posted!

Those are awesome!!
Looks like you made them out of a rasp file and horse shoe.
How long are those shanks?
Mine were about 2 to 2.5 inches long.
Itís tough to grab a holt if shank is too long.
Awesome build though.
Iím sure heís gonna love them.

Really depends on his riding style. I preferred short shanks and with little offset but I turned my two out really well. I will tell you one thing he will forever cherish those!! Good job amigo!!

Going to make the spur straps and put the Rowels on tomorrow.
Then he wants me to build him a drop barrel so he can learn to ride with his other arm.

18 years ago today I learned what the word Dad meant. It hit me like a ton of bricks and scared the hell out of me. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I canít wait to see the man that my son will become. Words canít describe how proud I am of my Son Clay. Happy Birthday Son.
