Is there anything in the whole world as exciting as getting your first pair of cowboy boots for any little boy? Is there any little boy who hasn’t dreamt of being a cowboy? Is that still a dream for little boys now? I know my little grandson loves to wear a cowboy hat. Our son could spend hours riding that pretend horse and shooting the bad guys with his toy gun. I remember as a child pretending to be riding a horse. We never had a horse, but a neighbor and my cousins did and I was in heaven when I got to ride the real thing. There was nothing better in the whole world than riding a horse. The last time I tried it, the wonder was gone. I was about 25 and the horse definitely controlled me. I guess as a child you have less fear and the joy of it just takes over. As a young adult I found I was afraid of the large animal who’s back I sat on. Why do we let that happen to us?
