FFfAW – My Horse Cody

When I turned 16, my dad bought me a car. Sure, I liked the car but it didn't hold a candle to Cody, my magnificent stallion.

I show Cody in horse shows where he usually brings home the blue ribbon. I spend all my free time with Cody, grooming him and training him. He and I are thick as thieves.

My dad asked me to choose between Cody or the car, Cody won, hands down.

My dad sold my car. Cody continues to win blue ribbons and I know that someday, he will win me a beautiful new car.

  1. Sounds like my neice – she adores her horse more than she likes most people πŸ™‚ I wonder what kind of car Cody will win for your narrator? flashier than the one Dad bought? Lovely, warm tale nicely written πŸ™‚

    • That’s good! That’s exactly how I want the story to sound! Thank you so much Joan! I want to tell you that on your story for the last FFfAW challenge, I wanted to leave a comment but it didn’t give me that opportunity on your post.

  2. Wow who wouldn’t want a magnificent stallion over a car! I can just imagine how wonderful to have won all those blue ribbons and there’s nothing like an animal to bond with and be loved back, a car can’t do that. If anyone can win her a car Cody can!! πŸ™‚ Warm and touching story PJ! xo

  3. Lovely story PJ. She was smart to choose Cody over the car, especially as Cody was prize winning. Smart so she can buy her own car as you write in the end and have her best animal friend. I liked your take on this prompt a lot πŸ™‚

  4. Lovely story, PJ. She definitely made the right choice. I don’t know how anyone could choose a hunk of metal over a living, breathing animal with whom you’ve made a connection. πŸ™‚

I would love to read your thoughts...
