DJ - plaited!
I had a phone call from Ros yesterday to check that I would be riding this morning, which I hadn't actually planned to do.  However, Ros is a good friend, and as I had no work booked I said that I would be there.

So, this morning DJ had the upset of me arriving again!

Actually he was OK and walked steadily in and had a semi-snooze while he was having his pampering.  He does have a tough life, poor boy!

Just as I was starting his plait, although, he started to figit.  I told him not to be silly, but then had to apologise as he was correct, and I was wrong.  He heard a horse walking up the road that he didn't recognise.  Ros had come down early as hre horse was ready and she didn't want to keep her standing around.

So - I got to meet Rosie.

Rosie is a recently broken horse, that has only been out on a road about 10 times in her life.  So that is why Ros wanted company.  Toni rode Smudge and I had DJ.  The job of escort horses is to behave themselves (!), to slow traffic and to keep calm in unusual situations.

DJ was a star.   He didn't even stop for his normal wee, but kept going at a calm steady pace - as did Smudge, I must say.  Although he had to stop to "lift his tail".  One advantage is that although both the boys are geldings, they still recoganised a pretty young girl when they saw one!

So, Ros was really pleased as Rosie did really well.  These first few rides are important as they are the basis of the rest of their working lives.  I can remember doing this for DJ, and it is nice to see him working hard at the other end of that situation.

So, we went up to the farm and back - shortish, but really lovely.

DJ truly deserved his carrot when he returned home.

On a side note when we got back Toni's daughter was just arriving ...

"She's dead"

Is how she greeted me ... Guess which DVD she has got up to in her B,tVS watching?

Hehe.. next time you meet Toni's daughter she'll greet you with "She's alive and he's naked."

She has been nagging me to tell her what happens! The irony is that it was her sister who followed it, and when they were staying, were watching an episode in season 7, when I spotted Spike!!

So your sister got you into the game and now you're getting her sister?

We're one big family after all :D

Aren't you the proud parent for DJ.

The next one is "She back" and him looking at her like he is being given the greatest miracle of the world. It an episode or two before we get naked Spike, but it's worth the wait.

Yes, well I suppose the real answer is that as he is my namesake, this is where he gets his perfection from!!

Oh, that scene as she walks down the staires ... I may try to watch that DVD before she borrows them.

Spike was just over-awed, and James acting showed it.

I love how James acts with his entire being. It's not him saying just lines and walking around. He uses his face, his voice and all the subtle movements to create a feeling. Some actors have it and others just try not to forget their lines or bump into the furniture.

Yes, DJ was great - all the headaches he has caused me were certainly forgotten this morning.

Yes, she has been nagging me to tell her what happens! The irony is that it was her sister who followed it, and when they were staying, were watching an episode in season 7, when I spotted Spike!! And, the rest, as they say, is history.

Aww what a good DJ. A pretty girl does it every time.
22nd-Jul-2008 06:20 pm (UTC)
Typical male!!

Still, I suppose I am as bad, if James Marsters name is mentioned!!!!
22nd-Jul-2008 08:21 pm (UTC)
Hooray for DJ! What a sweet boy.

And hee! I don't blame the girl for saying that. It's about all I could think of after I watched "The Gift."

Yes, DJ - he was definately wearing a halo today.

Yes - Kayleigh certaiinly summed it up!
