    Bumping because editing the original post did not move it up.

    I don't know how I feel....I just saw this and live just outside of Peterborough and I had heard nothing of Eddo's stroke. How terrible. He taught me when he was first starting out and I learned more from him in the brief time I spent with him than in all the years of other trainers combined. I hope he is doing well.

    Eddo had a paralyzing stroke in June just a few weeks after his first child was born. He is paralyzed on his left side - no use of left arm or leg. His speech is not affected much, so he can talk on the phone. Can't really use the computer much because he is limited with only one hand.

    He is in heavy rehab and working hard. He can now stand up with assistance, but will have to learn to walk again and with so little use of the left leg, that will be a long painful process.

    All the fundraising is to help him get an all-terrain motorized wheelchair so he can get around on his farm and begin teaching riding lessons to his students again.

    PM me if you'd like his phone number. I'm sure he'd love to talk with you. He's a great guy and being grounded is very hard on someone as active as he was.

    As of this moment, I do not have a bid on this fabulous deal, but I can tell you that a couple of the boarders at my barn are planning to bid on it at the party/fundraiser this coming Saturday.

    I would love to see a list of where the current bids are for all the items. Might get the bidding going a bit quicker (and higher)

    Bump. Remember that THIS auction ends at 4 pm tomorrow at our fundraiser. Get your bids in now.

    Edited to say that this is WRONG: I had posted this to end at midnight on Halloween evening. So, that is when it will end.
