How We Met

Cody has been sold to a sweet girl that rides him almost every day. She sends me pictures and updates. She is nice enough to let me keep his page up, because she knows how much I love and miss him. Cody was my first real horse. What I mean by that is I bought a horse on May 19,2007 the girth broke on our first ride, and I went down a gravel rocky bank, still riding the saddle, and broke my pelvis, tailbone, and pulled a bunch of junk loose in my rt leg. I was in a wheelchair for a while, had to do lots of therapy, and they told me I wouldn't ride again,so I sold my horse :( I worked hard and wouldn't give up, and in Oct. 2007, I was looking at all of the horses for sale on . I saw Cody and thought he was cute, then I saw that he was only about 30 miles from where I lived! I went and met him & bought him! He is the first horse I ever really got to work with. He has taught me a LOT! He was very patient with me, too!:) Now, due to circumstances beyond my control, he is owned by another who loves him for the sweet, willing, great horse he is..

I'm sorry to hear of the sale of Cody, but I know it was the best for you both.

I may be selling Rosie, myself. Mostly because she's getting dangerous to ride...but I still do love her so much. We'll have to see. Here's a vote for Cody!

Aww, sad to see you selling Cody. I would buy him if I could. Maybe the owner who buys him will let you visit him when you can and send pics by e-mail.... Hmmm... Anyways, Left a vote and a prayer. Come see Minnie Moons.

I am glad that you found a good home for Cody. At least that is some comfort for you. And he'll have other horsey friends too.

Yes, it is kind of rush to be going 24mph on a bike with a mini horse pulling you. I'm prepared to let go of the lead if he gets out of control. He's pretty good though. His biggest problem is that he always wants something in his mouth and he tries to bite the bike.

We've had so many flies this year. I don't know where they're breeding. Perhaps someone has a pile of manure somewhere. It's hard to tell. Anyway, poor Pippin was being so bothered by them that he went to the back of his big pen and put his head under a tarp and wrapped his eyes so that they couldn't get to them. He had a cloud swarming over his head and he just stood there. It looked so pitiful yet funny. I ordered a flymask for him right away. We haven't needed one before. It might also be because we had cooler weather than usual and then suddenly back to over 100 degrees.

Melian is doing really well and we are working hard on obedience. She can be quite independent. I just uploaded a new photo of her on Pippin's page. Plus there's one of the two of them close up.

Here's a vote for you and I hope you're having a great weekend. ttyl

I'm sorry cody is gone, but at least you know he went to a good home. I bet he'll really enjoy it! Glad you can keep cody's page up, and update with pictures. That's really nice of her! Also thats great that your Barn owner will come nad let you ride any time! he sounds like a really nice guy, We need more horsey people like him around here! I probably would have tried to get tickets to the George Strait concert if I knew it was here!LOL I never look at the schedule, theres always alot of bands at the tweeter! (midwest blah blah blah... I'm used to the old name!xD) also at this art center here they have concerts nowand then. My parents went to a ventures brothers concert, and a Jonny winter concert! They enjoyed them both. good luck to you daughter getting her permit,have a nice vacation too!Don't worry about school so much! it's summer! and I bet the kids will be just as great as last year!

How are things going with you? That's funny that Cody did the same thing with a dog biscuit. Horses are so funny. I know that you are praying for a good home for Cody and I'll add that I hope it's close so that you can still see him occasionally. I know what it's like to miss a horse that you love.

Last week when we went riding I rode Prince bareback. It's the first time since my bronco incident with him in November and he was really good. If he continues to behave I think I'll do it more often. I don't think I'll try jumping bareback anytime soon though. I like cantering and slow trotting but until my knee is properly healed it's hard to keep my balance. Plus I need practice!

And I got to ride again last night. With the saddle this time and even though it was evening it was pretty hot. We're back in the 100's here again. More like our normal summers. We had a great ride and the horses were eager to go.

And last week I also took Pippin out for a bike ride. I haven't done that since November when Prince injured my knee with his bucking bronco act. So, I didn't think Pippin would be too energetic but he ran the whole way, 8 miles, and at one point where the road was nice and flat he galloped full speed and was pulling me at over 24mph. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and I know he was happy being out with his herd. It was such fun that we went again tonight.

And on Sunday evening Pippin and Melian had some fun together. We went for a walk and I let Pippin run free in the forest. He was running around like a wild thing and Melian was hot on his heels. She's not quite fast enough to keep up but she was smart enough to cut corners. Now she's pooped. Pippin isn't though. I think he could have run for another 15 minutes at that flat out gallop. Too bad I didn't have a camera. I really need to carry one around with me.

Well, that's all from me. I always get carried away when I start writing about the animals I love. Here's a vote for you. Take care!

Heres another vote and a note! :)Glad you like stormy's portrait! I plan on changing my profile pic soon! Hope you get some pain relief from your brused ribs. Those will take awhile to heal. I hope you find cody a home and maybe could visit him. :)

Let us know how the Cody selling adventures go. IT surprising how many people are coming! Not many people are buying horses at all here! I think maybe in the selling agreement you should make a contract, just saying if he's sold you have to be contacted and told where he has gone, just so you can make sure he doesn't end up in a place like a slaughter house. We would hate that to happen to Cody! Jyust my oppinion after reading this thread on my forum. I guess it is sort of nit picky though!
I know it's hard to sell him, but it's whats best. random, but I saw cody's evil twin in mini horse form on another site! xD I wonder if I could find that picture. It was really funny!I'm having an alright summer. I'm doing community service once my lease is up. How has your summer been? Glad to have a break from teaching? hehe! I didn't know he was coming to Tinley! I like George strait, not my favorite but still good! :p I looked at my schedule, looks like he's already passed through. He probably went to the Tweeter center! (midwest ampitheater) It's a pretty cool place, really close to my house! They've been talking about shutting it down for a while. My sisters graduation was there last year, but they arn't renting it for graduations anymore. IT was extremly cold during her graduation though! And it's not a covered placE! just kinda open! It sounds like it was an awesome concert!! :)well, I gotta go! ttyl

wish your daughter luck with her permit!I dont look like a chipmunk anymore the swelling is almost all gone except for a little swelling on my left cheek they had to cut my tooth and they said that would make the healing a little slower on that i look pretty silly but thats ok.tonight im going on this big bike riding fundraiser its fun we did it last year the only thing that would make it better is if i could ride rosie instead of a bike hehe but i dont know if they would appreciate it.i thought it would be really cool to have my license but i have gone to the barn twice and the gas station to get a soda and i was over it its more fun riding with people especially if you talk a lot like me.hope your daughter feels better have a great weekend.

I am so very sorry about Cody. I know how much you care about him and what it meant for you to be able to ride your own horse again. Is there no way you could stable him in your garage or something? I feel really bad about this.
I took Pippin out with the cart on Sunday. It had been a couple of weeks. I had just been taking him for walks because I've been training Melian to walk on a leash. So, this was her first time in the cart and at first she was nervous but then she loved it and even took the reins in her mouth.
Yesterday we went for a walk, my sister and her parrot and me and Pippin and Melian. Pippin and Melian were doing fine together and then suddenly out of nowhere this weimaraner attacked us. He was charging us and barking like crazy but his owner managed to catch him in time. Pippin's response was to rear and bolt. I hung onto him but he hit Melian with his feet and scared her to death. Not good for their first walk together. After Pippin's initial scare he then was so furious that he was trying to get away from me and attack the dog. He doesn't like strange dogs anyway and once chased one all the way to it's home. I gave Melian some treats right next to Pippin's nose so that she would have good associations with him right away. Pippin was jealous so he got a dog biscuit too. I don't think he really liked it (first time that's ever happened) but he ate it anyway. Melian is fine and wasn't injured. Thank goodness.
Today we went the same way and she was scared because she thought that the dog would be there again. In a way, I'm glad because that means she's not blaming it on Pippin. I want them to be friends.
Well, that's all from me. Despite everything I hope you had a great 4th of July. Here's a vote for you. ttyl

Hi Cody
oh no a broken rib and a ed one?? Feel better soon!!! I don't mind your complaining, (even though it's not really complaining) at all!! It's good to hear from you, hope you will still keep in touch with everyone on HC no matter what happens!!!! Everything here is great we got Gypsee's problems all fixed now, (we think) and I rode her and even jumped her yesterday and she was aweosme and when she was bad it was my fault. (like running, (well walking actually lol) out and cantering really really fast when I wanted her to trot. she get's very excited about jumping lol) anyways here's a vote for you I hope to hear from you again soon!!!

I know Cody loves you and even though he's a horse, I think he'll understand why you have to sell him eventually. He seems like a smart boy. Congrats on you new nephew being born!I don't mind your complaining! :p It's alright, your definatley going through a tough time with having to sell Cody. Has anyone come to look at him?I know in this economy alot of horses can't find homes :( I hope you have a nice 4th of July weekend too. ttyl P.S. I finally changed my mane profile pic for awhile!

hi from peek
i'm sure it's a hard decision. when riding is on the periphery of your life and with so many who worry for you, it's hard to make a case to continue. costs just keep skyrocketing. are you having any luck selling him? people around here are practically giving horses away. it's a bad time. praying for healing for you and a good home for cody.

I wish we had more room in our barn, I would love to have a smaller sized horse to ride when the big guys are out in the big pasture. Right now we dont have anymore room for anymore horses.
Right now I have two ponies (Shadow and Chief) that I play with when the big guys are out grazing in the pasture. But the thing that stinks is that the two ponies aren't trained, so I can't ride them.
Good Luck on finding him a wonderful home.
Just wondering will you keep your page when you sell him.

I live right here in NC, I wish I could buy him. I can't afford the board of two horses though :/ Good luck finding him a good home!

Oh my gosh, I have not been on in forever... have I? My life outside the internet has been so busy.
Who wants an update on my boy?
So I went out and rode him today (Friday) and he was awesome. We jumped 2'3 didn't refuse a jump. There was one where I thought... well dang he is going to refuse I went up in two point way to soon. He jumped it, barely made it, but jumped it! He is my baby :) My friend was like WOW you have a good horse, he must really love you <3

Other than that I have been riding Sallie, Hershey, and Josh. Hershey and Josh are two 3-4 year old paints; and Sallie is related to Rocki! They are the same age and have the same dad I will try and get some pictures of them all.

NOTE: I won't be on to much, but come by and drop us a vote I'll try my hardest to return the favor! Talk to you soon!
