Cody Has A New Home

Yesterday I finally got my computer working again. It was so simple I was really mad at myself. All I had to do was unplug the router and plug it back in. Oh well, got it with a little help from someone from India or somewhere. He was quite patient with me.

Saturday we spent the day at Farragut State Park (Idaho) and had our Back Country Horsemen annual fundraiser. It was not as good as we had hoped but did OK. It was very hot and we competed with several things. I forgot my camera but that is OK, I was busy with the silent auction. People, businesses and shoppers were all very generous.

Sunday, some friends we met camping up at Clearwater Crossing a couple of weeks ago came to look at Cody. I had been bragging about mustangs (unusual? no) and then told them about Cody. They called, came and looked at him and fell in love. They will come and get him on Sunday afternoon. I am so glad. I know he will be in a wonderful home. They are so nice people. We liked them a lot right away when we met them.

I am in a quandary. Andrea and I have problems with saddles. I have been using Bob's lightweight saddle. It is very very comfortable for me. Today when I rode Sage she acted worse than she did the last time I rode her. She kept swinging her head around and acted like she was going to bite my foot and was yancy and tense. I thought maybe the cinch was pinching. But it is too narrow in the front and with my weight that was what was pinching. I got off and we took the saddle off. Tomorrow I will try my saddle on her and we will pad it up some more. I hate that. She has such a large shoulder, and big stride, the saddle will have to have a larger tree. It is supposed to be cooler tomorrow so I will feel more like working a little longer. I think Andrea has worked her problems out, hope I don't want to have to buy a new saddle.

Sorry I had a hiatus from here but didn't mean to. I tried unplugging things but not the router. Oh well, such is life with electronics when your brain isn't as young as it used to be.

  1. Wonderful news about Cody! So happy for him. Thank you for your note on my blog. I'm very pleased with how our herd is getting along...for the most part, anyway. We've had Eagle for a month now, and last night was the first time I had to get after him for aggressive behavior. And, of course it was directed at Harley and was completely unprovoked. Makes me so mad!! Of all the horses, why always the blind horse? I guess it's because they can be mean and he doesn't have any hope of retalliation. I hope it was a fluke, but I was so very discouraged on his behalf. The horses were overly hungry (I guess), I was getting the hay and they were waiting. Everybody was in their spots, except Eagle who was nickering at the gate. Harley just wanted to go past and out into the feeding area. This made Eagle mad and he bit Harley who was already walking away from him. I was encouraged by what you told me, and will hope and pray that Eagle will become a defender and friend of my blind boy...
