Kimball Foord and Cody's Triple Revenge

Over at Ride for Dreams, you can follow the progress of Kimball Foord, his QH gelding Cody, and Australian Shepherd Cheyenne as they trek across Canada to raise money for CanTRA(Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association). The pair set out from Guelph on May 6, 2006 and as of today they’re in northern Ontario. Interesting that on this CanTRA page Foord says that not all sections of the Trans Canada Trail are open to horses, who have less impact on the environment than mechanized vehicles, yet snowmobiles and ATVs are allowed.

Take the quiz! I'm Bucephalus.

EDIT: The quiz was apparently offline for a while but it's back now

You are Bucephalus, who could only be tamed by Alexander the Great. After he died he founded a city in your honour.

Blatant self-promotion ;)
