I am going to leave this add up as a memorial this year. Codys Classic Cruzer died unexpectedly on 02/10/15. He was the horse of a lifetime and with his death I will be retiring from breeding. I just could never replace him. I have a couple of yearling that remain for sale. They are listed on this site. The ranch as a couple of three year olds in training. Please contact Lydia about these wonderful horses.
Codys Classic Cruzer was from outstanding line of the “Cody” reiners. The Late Great Hall of Fame Sire Joe Cody, and 5 times Top Ten World Qualifier in reining and Working Cow Horse Corona Cody, is his Great Grandsire and Grandsire.
His dam Smokys Lightning Hot (Buttermilk) was 1999 Virginia AQHA Reining Champion. With a Performance Register of Merit, and 6 performance wins in very limited showing. She had proven herself to be a superior brood mare producing outstanding performance prospects.
With a family tree like that you have a lot to live up to and Cruz was equal to the task.
