    Well I took Saturday off and Bre and I went for a Trail ride at Waubonsie State Park ParkDetails

    Well the trail ride did not start out all that great.
    Cody must have Fallon asleep at the hitching post and when I picked his foot up to pick it he spooked and reared up. He ended up going over backward with saddle on. And landed on his back with his head between the truck and the hitch. Mind you the truck and trailer were at least 50 feet from the hitch. The force of the lead breaking sent him flying backward. When he landed he went so calm I thought he was hurt. I removed his saddle while he lay there then helped him up. He didn't have a scratch on him. Although the brand new truck did. I did give him some pain meds just in case

    After being so calm during the wreck when I knew Cody was ok I about Fainted. After I recovered I walked him around and made sure he was good to go and he had not a scratch on him. I have a few pictures. I am trying to upload to Photobucket..
    Here are what are loaded so far.

    Lucky I had a back up halter and lead rope with us. I always carry extras.


    I have more trail ride pictures but they are not loading yet.
    But here is a little bambi who was in the field by my house. We didn't see mommy though :(

    Lori, how scary that must have been! Glad he wasn't hurt. Hubby's leased horse scared us once really badly when he slipped in some wet grass with hubby on his back. Hubby bailed off and Scuffy fell over on his side and just laid there. Was very calm wasn't moving. It was so scary seeing him just lay there and not try to get up. I thought he had injured himself horribly. Broken legs, back, neck etc. once we determined he didnt have any visible injuries, We had to physically heave him back up onto his feet. He walked away without a scratch on him. Personally, I think he was embarrassed and wanted to hide away from the world for a bit. LOL

    Melinda I about did .. It was so not like Cody to rear like that. He had a rope halter on and a very strong lead rope. I think the Force of the Rope breaking sent him Flying back.. he stayed so calm while laying there I thought for sure he was really hurt.
