Egyptian Arabian gelding

Star Fire Dakota ~ Cody

This week’s horse is a stunning black registered Egyptian Arabian named Star Fire Dakota, or "Cody" for short. Cody is owned by Sandra McLoughlin of Barrie, Ontario and resides at Whispering Winds stable in Craighurst.

 Photographing this beautiful 15 hh, 7 year old gelding, galloping at liberty was like watching a scene from "The Black Stallion" movie. Truly a site to behold! Cody’s sire is "The Atticus" (son of "The Minstril") and his dam is "Eh Ghorabah". Cody certainly is a chip off the old block!

Cody and Sandra have started training with Pam Stewart from Quiet Winter Farms in Perkinsfield.  Hopefully one day they will be competing in dressage. Sandra says his behavior is what you would expect from an Arab (prone to jump about), but he has a good heart.  She has no hesitation in putting her kids on his back…  she knows he'll look after them! Sandra was told that he was purchased from the breeder (Montebello Farms) at 7 months by a mother whose son had been distraught  at the thought of him being shipped off (there were a bunch of them with numbers around their neck). That could explain why he is so personable.

Congratulations to Cody for being our January 2, 2006 Horse of the Week!
