Alright I'm a few weeks behind. Again. But Eddy got to get back into work at the end of April! Haven't gotten to do much since because of rain (Thanks climate change) but we are working. Doing some ground work for now. I'd write more but I'm exhausted. Here's some pictures.
The other day I brought the mail in, and for once there was something for me! Eddy's vet check form. Since this is my first year owning him I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. Sure, I'd volunteered. Hell I even served on the board. But I had never actually READ the vet check letter … Continue reading Vet Checks
Lives at the rescue I got him from. His name is Hucklebuck. I'm seeing a family resemblance going on-brown/bay and no white markings. And Hucklebuck has a full brother named Look Sharp Jack. That's all I got. Sorry, it's been wicked busy around here.
Spring is fucking gross. I just had a mud/shit tumble today. The entire farm is pretty much under 3 inches of water and mud. Manure is getting mixed into it. There's nothing we can really do-the farm is positioned just so in the hillside that we get all the runoff. And it keeps raining to … Continue reading Spring has Sprung
Some updates before I bitch about the weather. Eddy got his teeth floated earlier this year and was excellent of course. I have to admit I was concerned; I hadn't seen how he did for a dentist before. I know how he is for the vet (Excellent) so I shouldn't have worried but just in … Continue reading March: In And Staying Like a Lion
It's shedding on me. And it's freezing and thawing. Please can it be spring?
My biggest goal with this blog is to be honest about life with and around Eddy. Sometimes it's fun, sometimes it's not, and sometimes there are related tangents to share. This is a tangent. It's also very, very long and kind of a rant, so I don't expect you to read it all. DISCLAIMER: Just … Continue reading Things I Just Won’t Do
For me not Eddy. I just accepted a position at the MOST-a science museum here in Syracuse. I'll be teaching young'uns science edumacation. It will be sad to leave the bookstore after 4 and a half long years together, but it's for the best. Benefits, bigger paycheck (To buy Eddy nice things) and working in … Continue reading New Job!
Wow I am bad at blogging. It's not that I don't care or don't want to chart Eddy's and my progress through the first year, it's just that I don't make the time or think to write when cool stuff happens, or just schedule a time to write. So-month late New Year's resolution is to … Continue reading Getting Through Winter
This is Eddy's daddy: Look Sharp was a pretty decent racehorse and sire in Ohio. He was a stallion at Hagemeyer Farms for years. He didn't make millions, but he sired millionaires. Ed was not one of those fortunate foals. I do see where he gets his good looks from. Eddy is almost the spitting … Continue reading History Lesson Part Two: Who’s Your Daddy?
