A little boy suffering with cystic fibrosis had his dream realized when a Huron family opened their horse stable for him to ride for the first time. “He has an illness that is very aggressive right now and is making his life very difficult,” said Barbara Meussner of Church360.tv in Lexington. Dalton Wallace, 10, was recently released from Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center. On a regime of morphine, his doctors sent him home with an order not to resuscitate. According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, CF is a disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. The average person living with CF, lives to their mid-thirties. “Today is a special day for him to forget about all that and enjoy his life,” said Meussner. Mark and Gary Stanfill own a horse stable in Huron and allowed Dalton to ride one of their horses. They allow disabled children to ride horses for therapy at their stable each Tuesday. “I can’t tell you the number of blessings we’ve received, the amount of friends we’ve made, the positive reinforcement we’ve got from the community and churches,” Gary Stanfill said.
