Your video gave me chills Indy. It's just so beautiful! I have recently had the pleasure of meeting an autistic 23 yo. She is shy around new people, but what I wouldn't give to be like her. She is happy all the time, without a care in the world. She's very high functioning and pretty much has a photographic memory; but can't remember names. I am either Buddy or Girl. She's like being with a child but with no arguments whatsoever. You tell her not to do something and she just stops, says ok and bounces (literally) to something else. She's one heck of a rider!!! She forms a visible bond with any animal I've ever seen her interact with. I had met her when I went to pick Rookie up, but had the pleasure of camping with her a couple of weeks ago. I had taken my dog Leo with me who is normally shy around new people. As soon as he got out of my truck, he went directly to her. You would have thought he was her dog. The second day we were there, she was riding her horse bareback around the field, and Leo zig-zagged right in front of them as if he was looking for any type of hazzards. I found this amazing as by breed (Catahoula Leopard Dog) he is a herder. I'm so happy that your son has made...and IS still making such progress. You are truly blessed!!!
