It’s been an eventful few months for Kelly Scott.
The Bandera County, Texas, farrier will be the subject of a mural that will be installed on the side of an office complex at the intersection of 12th Street and Highway 16.
The mural, which will be called “Kelly’s Coffee,” will be painted by artist Bill Stevens on 4-foot-by-8-foot panels. The panels then will be attached to the building.
“We thought that would be a good place to put the first mural,” local historian Dave Burrel tells the Bandera County Courier. “It would be something spectacular to welcome people to the Cowboy Capital of the World.”
Another honor is headed Scott’s way tonight when he will be inducted into the Texas Heroes Hall of Honor.
The Hall of Honor was established by Frontier Times Museum “to recognize the contributions of remarkable individuals and wondrous characters who, through their leadership, creativity, example and hard work, keep the pioneer spirit alive and help keep Texas, Texan.”
In addition to being a farrier, he’s a master chuck wagon cook and a former rodeo clown, according to The Bandera Bulletin. He’s appeared in several television commercials and shows, as well as on the big screen including, The Great Waldo Pepper with Robert Redford and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas with Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds.
