McDONOUGH, GA - Folks were quick on the draw with their cell phones at a McDonough gas station on Highway 155 on Friday.
They wanted to capture a rare sight...an urban cowboy.
That's how most people react when Charles Edwards and his quarter horse, Honey, saunter into town.
"You know I have heard somebody say, 'Mom, look at the black cowboy,' you know; it's just a trip, man," said Edwards.
He began riding for social fun with the South Metro Riders Club about four years ago.
But these days his passion has turned into a practical way for Edwards to save money and educate people about history.
He even claims he can cover more ground on horseback.
"With the traffic growing in Henry County, I can get here faster than I can in a car," he said.
As they ponied up nearly four bucks a gallon to fill their horseless carriages, some drivers were thinking twice.
