Title:
HECK OF A WRECK

Author:

Category:
Sculpture

Description:
HECK of a WRECK Bronze, 29’’ x 26’’ x 16’’ price $5900. When I look at this sculpture, it brings back memories of my own heck of a wreck on September 26,2014 on the Indian Head Ranch. I was in a full-speed matched horse race when I collided with a loose, riderless horse, which caused my horse to go down, flip over, and land on me. The cantle of the saddle landed on my left shoulder, and I broke my collarbone, shoulder blade, seven ribs, suffered a collapsed lung, and a concussion. I also received an expensive helicopter ride to the hospital, 12 new screws, and a stainless steel plate. Surprisingly, my horse came out unscathed with only some cuts and bruises, whereas I was laid up for three months. As soon as I was able, I got back on my horse and started roping again. You have three choices when something bad happens: you can have it define you; allow it to destroy you; or let it strengthen you.
