DJ - plaited!

I had a good boy on my hands today!

So, what is he saving himself up for ... or maybe it was his way of saying Thank You for his new saddle that he had this morning.  As he has put on weight his other saddle wasn't lying brilliantly, so I bought an old one from Toni, which fitted him beautifully.

As I had to change styrrups etc I was rushing in the end, but he just stood and got plaited and tacked without any fidgiting.

We went out with Toni and Smudge, Sue and Painter (who had travelled over to joing the Wednesday outing) and Ros ... on a bike!  Yes, Cherry has sold and she hasn't picked up her youngster yet, so she cycled with us.

We went to the Church and back ... and even though Smudge and Painter spooked at lots and DJ had a cycle next to him for a lot of the way he was a good boy.

The only downside of the morning was the rain - yes, it started raining as we left Toni's ... and stopped when we returned!!

Still it was a good ride - with a very good boy

Aww. Good DJ. I imagine he likes to keep you guessing?

Yes - it was lovely - but worrying ... what is he plotting?

He will be glad that you are around to spoil him again ... just don't get him back into the party scene!

Sounds like a lovely way to spend the day. Was it drizzly type of rain or heavy. When I lived in Germany, you just got use to the light rain and ignored it while going on about your way.

It was fairly steady all the time - but living in Europe, you do get used to it.

Toni and Ros had both spent time running yards - and for about 4 years I worked with Toni - Then if you got wet you stayed wet. At least with this, I got wet, took DJ back to his field and changed to dry clothes to drive home ... and stay dry!

I shocked my German landlady one day when there was a light rain. I said something about it being just a light mist. She scolded me about my language. Seems mist in German is shite or something along that line. My German spoken German was never strong. My ex went to classes because he had to work with the German army while we lived there. Somehow I was able to understand the spoke word more than he was so I got to translate for him sometimes. My landlord in one apt building would ask me to go with him when he did repairs. The building was all Americans. The landlord couldn't understand many of the Americans because of their accents. My slow Texas accent he could understand, but Americans from the North speak much faster. They confused him. I understood. We were in New York City once when going home from Germany. I couldn't understand anything they said while we were there. They just talked too fast. Told you I could ramble if given the chance.

Oh boy - we can't meet then ... I rabbit at speed (like a rabbit on speed!). Essex girls either speak really slow - or really fast ... as my Mum is impatient I was glad to be one of those who speak very fast!!
