Here is a short video of Ask Eddy.
Ask Eddy has been in Clay’s care now for about 10-days. He’s been walking every day and already appears to have brighter eyes, a healthier coat and even has gained a few pounds! He’s not outwardly showing any signs of ailing, but the barn is still being careful with him and he’ll be spending some time in Canterbury’s horse pool to keep his fitness level up while letting his legs rest.
He will, of course, be sent over to the track in a few weeks to get used to the surface and see how he is progressing. If all goes well, we may be looking for a race for him near the end of May!
In the interim, we will be keeping an eye out for another runner as the meet opens our of a higher class level than Eddy (no offense Eddy!). I will also be working with Jeff to set dates for our backside tours this season. I’m thinking we will schedule three, possibly one each in June, July and August to give everyone an opportunity to attend one while mixing in summer vacations, etc. We’ll let you know those dates in a few weeks.
See you next Friday night – Opening Night 2013!
