"Everyone has to 'start' somewhere. This sculpture is of a nine-year-old whose dream to be a cowboy has come true. He's gotten the OK to accompany a 'seasoned' cowboy crew on a trail drive. of 2,500 head of Texas cattle from San Antonio to the Blackfoot Agency in Montana; a drive that will last five months on the trail in 1883. He is on an old XIT branded horse that has been up the trail many times before. His Texas Mother Hubbard saddle has seen better days, and his grandma's star quilt doubles as a bed roll and saddle blanket. His outfit is a little shabby but to ask him, he's proud to be on a real cow horse and in style. No matter what our occupation is today, we have all had the thrill and expectations of Going Up the Trail for the First Time." -Deborah Copenhaver-Fellows, NSS
