You All Get To See Him Today

DJ - plaited!
Yes - you will see DJ as much as I do, today.  

I started driving towards his home to be met by mist, that turned to fog, that thickened.  So half way there I phoned Toni and she said it was similar, so turned round and came home ... No riding today ... and just seeing a dappled grey on a foggy day is hard!!

So thought I would share a couple of pics I took last month, which show his new summer coat - and the fact that I do still plait him!!

btw - The first picture is taken at a bad angle, I do know .... However I decided to post it as the area of gravel behind where DJ is standing is "THE" gravel I fell over on in December where I damaged my hand!!

Awww, he's so cute. It looks as if he's posing for you- he knows he's a pretty boy.

He can be pretty good around camera's ... although sometimes he will ignore everything I do to try to get him to look my way!

Aww. He's so cute. Those are nice plaits.
15th-Jul-2008 12:51 pm (UTC)
Yes - he is cute ... and the plaits go in pretty fast now ... all held on just one elastic band at the end.

Oh he's gorgeous!

He is a stunner - but I think he knows it!

I never really stopped to talk to you about your horse. Which is odd because I am a horse lover myself. What breed is he? My horse in a standardbred, I haven't been home to ride him in more than 7 months and its terrible.

I let some older gentleman ride him in the One-Day 25mile in Vermont, and he came in third...still waiting for the piccies of that :D

I think our horses would get along. :D

DJ is a 9 year old Connemara pony - this was some pics of him when 1 day old - http://debris4spike.livejournal.com/153578.html

You must miss your baby when you can't spend time with him

Awww he's so handsome and he knows it!
15th-Jul-2008 06:27 pm (UTC)
Oh yes ... but he is like a lot of males - a show-off!!
15th-Jul-2008 07:23 pm (UTC)
Nawwww whos a very pretty boy! I love how hes kinda halfway between steel dabbled grey and white-grey. :) What a lovely summer coat he has, and nawww pretty mane :D

Yes - he is a stunner - and it is fascinating to watch his colour change every year - from balck at birth to this ... Toni says that it is being with me that is sending him white!!
15th-Jul-2008 08:21 pm (UTC)
He is, indeed, a very pretty boy - and his hair is very smart.

He is a stunner - he is a good boy for the plaiting, so it doesn't actually take very long at all, now!

Hope the pics of DJ brought back some good memories for you Chris. Yes, DJ is a stunner ... when he is not being a terror!

Thank you - Carrots "evaporated" as they arrived in DJs field ... he blames Conrad!

He is a stunner, isn't he? Yes, it would be great to meet - maybe we should aim for 1/2 way???

oh myyy!
you actually own a horse!!
is that actually very common over there where you live?

i have actually yet to see a horse really up-close and personal.
and he's really pretty!

I grew up in London - so I didn't see any horses then ... in fact I was 33 before I ever even touched a horse!

DJ is now 9 - and as you can see by the link, I have known him all his life - he is a sweetheart ... well, most of the time!

In the Countryside, riding is a popular sport ... and is a real favourite amongst teenage girls. But, if you want to, there are competitions going on all the time - I just ride for fun.

ooh i spent a year in London when i was really really young, just barely a year old.

he does look like a sweetheart.

well, i hope i'll have a chance to try riding in my lifetime!

I am sure that you will get a chance to spend some quality time with a horse ... It is amazing the oppertunities that are out there, that arrive without us expecting it. Rididng wasn't something I had ever even thought about!!
