There’s something about a perfectly fitted pair of cowboy boots that gives everyone a little more swag in their walk — even if you haven’t been walking for very long. Take it from little Indy.
Indiana Feek, the joyful 3-year-old daughter of Rory Feek and the late Joey Martin Feek, was reluctant to take her first steps when she started school at High Hopes in 2016. Rory shared video of her physical therapy, where the defiant little nugget stubbornly resisted taking steps, even with the aid of a walker.
Thanks to an infinite amount of patience from daddy, a staff of great teachers and therapists and a pair of leg braces, the pig-tailed pumpkin is now mobile. And thanks to a new purchase, she’s ready to tackle life on the farm in style.
Rory shared a video on his Instagram page of his baby girl stomping around a western wear store in a purple sundress with a straw cowboy hat on her head and her first pair of cowboy boots on her feet.
“The nice folks at Preston’s Western Wear found some cowboy boots that can fit over Indy’s little braces. Somebody is smiling up in heaven,” he writes, alluding to his late wife, who had a passion for both horses and cowboys.
While most of us know that a decent pair of cowboy boots takes a good year to break in, Indy seems unfazed as she clomps around the store declaring “boots!”
Considering that the little one just stood by herself for the first time this past Christmas, we’d say she’s come a long way, baby. And with that kind of sass and an angel on her shoulder, she’s bound to go a lot further.
