I never imagined when
I bought you that day,
that you'd capture my heart and steal it away.
Your soft kind eyes, patience, and trust,
I never imagined I would love you so much.
I had to
euthanize Cody on December 20, 2006, from bone marrow cancer which
compromised his immune system, causing acute pnemonia. He was such a
fighter and never showed any symptoms until the final week of his life.
He was in a lot of pain and that is what hurts me the
most...watching him suffer. I did the only thing for him I could, put
him out of pain.
I owned him for 12 years and his loss has impacted me in more ways than I
can explain. He was a wonderful horse and taught me many things. He was patient
and kind...my favorite thing was when I'd brush his forelock, he'd lower
his head and put his muzzle on my stomach and lick me.
I believe he also loved me and that's what I miss also. He would meet me
at the gate and nicker and get so excited when I'd come to the barn. I did
nothing but cry for three days. It's been three months and I still cry. I'll
never forget my little red pony. Everyone called him "Peggy's Boy".
