Big boots to fill

A massive statue of the late country music/rodeo star Chris LeDoux was recently installed at a memorial park in his honor in Kaycee, Wyo. I had the chance to snap some pictures as the statue was being finished at a shop outside Frannie.

The process was very much a family affair.

Here, finisher Clay Ward applies patina to the bronze as sculptor D. Michael Thomas looks on.

The statue, entitled "Good Ride Cowboy," shipped out the next morning, bound for a June 19 celebration in Kaycee.
