DJ - A True Model

DJ has, as you have all read, been called many things - and done many things ... but today he turned into a versatil (and quick-change) model!

When I went out to his field he was in "Outfit 1" ... Having had a cold, but dry night his log winter coat was, although dirty, very fluffed out.  All he needed was the stud in his ear and he would have been the perfect model for a Steiff Teddy Bear!  He looked lovely!

We wandered back in and he had a reasonable groom - so by the time we left I was looking as dusty as he still was.

Toni and Smudge joined us as we went to meet Ros and Cherry on our Wednesday chat .... ummm, ride!  It was overcast but dry and we decided that, providing we took things fairly calmly ... no cantering for DJ, yet, then we could go through the woods.  It was lovely - very quite and peaceful down through the woods and then back up the track (which is where they were a bit upset not to be able to canter).  It is quite steep and so by the time we were at the top, all 3 horses were slightly out of breath - with DJ being both the worst, but also sweating slightly ... then ... it rained!  

By the time we dropped Ros and Cherry off the rain was stopping - but DJ was by now modelling "Outfit 2" ... The Bog Monster look ... the dust mixed with sweat and then rain looked ... ummm, how do I describe the look politely??

Once back I spent some time combing through DJ's mane while I was waiting for him to settle, before I could feed him ... and now his modelling skills are extended as the rain had done wonders for his hair - Now we are looking at an Advert For Hair-Care!  

Once he was fed - back out to the field ... and then it was a case of finding some mud and rolling - and going back to the DJ look that we all know ... and love!
