I do apologize for the quick blog tonight. It's been a busy day. Eddie's stiff from his fall yesterday. I discovered that one of his hind shoes has worn down completely in the front and is actually in two pieces. The front clip broke off so perhaps that's what caused the fall.

I did actually drive him today, just at a walk, to help stretch out his stiffening legs. I can tell he feels pretty sore and he was nervous too. At first he was nervous and didn't want to go, but you know what they say, "If you fall of your horse, get back on!" And that applies to horses too! It was good for him mentally to get out and realize that driving doesn't have to result in injury.

He's getting ointment and banamine for a few days. As long as we can keep his wounds clean they should heal up fairly fast. I posted a photo of his worst knee on his page. You can see that all the skin is gone on that spot and the cartilage is showing. Eek!

And just in case we thought that wasn't enough, Pippin has some type of eye irritation! Both eyes are very red and oozing some nasty pus. Tomorrow I'll pick up eye ointment for him and more banamine for Eddie.

Sigh! Always something!

So, today's quick Percheron fact is that if you weigh 2000lbs and you're going 10 miles an hour, don't fall down! That's a LOT of force!

I was trying to fix up a new video tonight but my computer kept saying, "NO!" I finally listened and decided to tackle it again tomorrow. Instead here's a movie I made awhile ago only using avatars. It's silly love story but it still makes me smile.
