Saddle Up!!!

 

Posted by: Judd Davis - bio | email

Grady, AL (WSFA) - It's comfort and style for cowboys.    The only thing between a cowboy and the horse is the saddle.    And it's not just a seat, it's a work of art.    And these days cowboys all over the country are looking to saddle up with a man who lives in rural Montgomery county in the tiny town of Grady.   His name is Kevin Parrish and his dad got him into it.

"I started with him when i was just 13 years old,"  Parrish said.   "I love it and can't think of anything I'd rather do.   The first thing i notice in the morning is the smell of leather.   It's kind of cool."

His orders come in from all over the country.   And he can build one from scratch, or fix up the scratches on an old one.    "everyday is something different.    One day I might be fixing stirrups, then the next making one from scratch."     

Kevin says it takes about a week to make a new saddle and if you saw all the detailed leather work you'd think he'd have a crew of 20.   But for now it's just one.    His dad gave him some rulest to live by.     "Always have the right tool for the job, and if it's worth doing, do it right."  That's how Kevin Parrish does it everyday, putting Grady, Alabama on the cowboy map.
