I’ve been feeling a little under the weather for the last couple of days. I was supposed to go to Mohawk last night to meet all of the great T4K kids at the Horseplay event, but I think all the summer excitement caught up with me and Taylor Trot suggested that I stay at the barn to rest instead.
Luckily, I’m feeling much better now and my friend, Mullingar the miniature, filled me in on all the excitement of the event! Anjelka, a veterinarian student from the University of Guelph, was there talking about horse nutrition and care and Stephane, Mohawk’s own blacksmith, showed the kids all of his cool tools and talked about his very important job at the track! He always takes good care of me when I race at Mohawk! Greg from the media department at Mohawk let all the kids sit up on a real jog bike and even took them to check out the starting gate! My friends Mullingar and the Painted Pony were there for the kids to feed and play with and Randy Waples, who won the first race of the evening, invited all the kids into the Winner’s Circle for a photo!
Oh wait! How could I forget? Jody Jamieson also made a special guest appearance only days after winning the prestigious North America Cup! The kids had tons of questions for him and were even able to get their picture taken with him!
I’m so disappointed that I missed it, but I’m glad to be feeling better! Taylor always knows best!
