Shots and checkup

October 12th, 2007 by Hikage

The vet came out this week and checked the horses. Eddie got his shots, had his coggins pulled, and had some sort of strep thing done. The vet also checked for any signs of him decending, but so far no luck. Vet said as long as he’s not acting like a stud and not being mean, to not worry about it. So we’ll reconsider our options in May when he’s 2.

Autumn Classic

October 8th, 2007 by Hikage

Took Eddie to the Autumn Classic on Sunday. Walked him around and let him observe a bigger show, or at least a show at a different (larger) location. He behaved very well, until it was time to go. He had decided he liked it there better than at home due to the grass. But over all he was an extremely good boy.

In the event of trailer failure…

September 15th, 2007 by Hikage

Ok, so we didn’t make it to the show. Family and I went back this afternoon and checked the trailer again. Apparently too much moisture on the brakes was the culprit.

After checking the trailer, my dad and I went out and attempted to lunge Ed. Hewas a bit hyper, so it was probably good that we were in his pen, because he broke free from me and ran multiple laps around the entire pen. After calming down, I caught him and we lunged him at a walk and a trot in both directions. However, we did not do it long because I do realize he is young and still growing. I didn’t want to stress his joints with the circling.

September Show

September 15th, 2007 by Hikage

This month’s show was a bust. We got Ed on the trailer and everything, but then we started out and I noticed a problem. The trailer’s brakes (I don’t have a brake box in the truck) started randomly engaging. It was tossing Ed everywhere. Almost ended up in a wreck. So we just turned around and went back to the barn. Rather miss a show than risk an injury or worse.

So… here’s hoping things are better in October!

First post

This is Mr. Ed Skips Ahead’s (aka Eddie) website. It’s a chance for me to document his progress, and also a chance for me to play with WordPress.

Right now I’m just trying to get the site set up. I’m still playing around with layout and whatnot, so hang tight!
