Today we had to say a tearful good bye to Cody, my daughter Jenna's horse and her best friend in the entire world. He was just sold to a wonderful family nearby, so she'll be able to visit him often. I wanted to share some sweet pictures of Jenna and Cody, along with some that were taken many years ago with her first pony Koalt. Jenna has accomplished so many amazing things over the years, the latest being at the Pacific Northwest Hunter Jumper show in May. It was not only her best show ever....she won 2 classes and Reserve Champion in the Adult Amateur Hunter division....it was on her birthday!!! I'm soooo proud of you Jenna!
I used to wonder why there was a little brown spot on her nose everyday!
blue is beautiful!
PNW AA Reserve Hunter Champ 2010!
the best birthday ever!
I call this one "JOY"....simply says it all. We love you Cody :)
Welcome to my blog! I'm an artist - it's not just what I do but how I see the world. I find inspiration everywhere...in nature, music, friends. I am very fortunate these days to being able to license my art to some wonderful companies for greeting cards, calendars, fabrics, giftware and scrapbook products and more. Thanks for visiting!
