Eddie & Joe

Eddie & Joe, originally uploaded by cnlizziebns.

"I womp to ride the big horse now"

Eddie, retired, who worked every day for eight years helping me educate the young thoroughbred racehorses, pushing them into the barriers, coaxing them into confidence on their first outings around the training tracks. Eddie would look after them and took it very personal if another horse danced too close to one of his babies.

Eddie in semi retirement took children to trophies in gymkhana on Sporting days, as long as they could stick to his gait if he broke into a pace. Eddie is supposed to be fully retired but a mob of kids visited today and Eddie, renown for his reliability was asked to oblige which he did.

Eddie is a Standardbred.
