Thanksgiving morning was brewing with expectation and RAIN! This was a big day for the ranch and our Black and white paint, Banjo a.k.a. Handsome. This was the first day he would carry a very special man on his back. The two would join together and embrace a new beginning. Banjo had his first experience of being "Legs" for a human. Grady had his first experience in ten years of being atop a beautiful horse and feeling the freedom of moving and walking as a horse back rider. Leaving his wheelchair behind, we rode off into the wind and rain. Smiles brought light into that stormy afternoon. It may have been freezing outside, but inside, our hearts were burning. Listening to Grady talk about the freedom he felt and seeing the joy on his face left all of us knowing that God was using Banjo and this moment for a special purpose...to fulfill a precious man's Thanksgiving wish. Thank you Lord for using us...and thank you Grady for allowing us to be a part of your special day.
