DJ - plaited!

Too Hot To Be Out Wearing A Winter Coat!

That was DJ's conclusion when we got back this morning!

When I had gone to get him in this morning he certainly wasn't looking as clean as in the photos I shared with you on Monday!  The drizzle wasn't washing the mud off - just making him too damp to groom properly!!

Anyway - got the saddle are and his face (wears his bridle rubs) dry and clean(ish) so the rest is only "cosmetic" - Sorry DJ, but you were the one who had rolled in the mud, you are the one who has to live with the dirty image!

Ros and Cherry arrived at their normal time, just as it was drying up and we headed towards the forestry - when we got there it looks as if it will be our last full ride for some time that way as they are re-planting various areas and closing that part off to horse-riding ... Mad as we only ever went along the track and not the fields.

Anyway - we had a good ride - DJ had a canter even though I didn't ask him for one!  The surface of the verge at that point was too good an opportunity to miss!

We had a great time - but when we got back you can spot the benefits of clipping a horse - DJ was wet!  He had sweated so much as he is growing a lovely full coat - but with a busy ride and a warm day - he was hot!

So I had a long wait before I could feed him - and more importantly before he could go back to his field.  As Toni was out it meant she got her stable and yard brushed down while I waited - so she will be happy that DJ got hot.

Eventually with yet more towelling he was dry enough to go back out ... after a feed of course!

Ever Wonder How I Chose My User-Name?

Well - as most of you should know the 2nd half comes from the most amazing character to ever hit the screens!  What more need I say!

The Debris-bit is a nickname I was given 15 (ish) years ago by the conductor of the orchestra - and it stuck - as I think it is funny ... but true.

Take this evening for example.

I was going to type up DJ's morning - have tea and then sort out some pics to put on photo-bucket of hy hols.  So far - so good.

Tea was easy - toast and peanut butter.

So I put 2 pieces of bread in the pop-up toaster, and went to type about DJ.  So fa - so good.

DJ was up on LJ - time for tea.  I opened my kitchen door to black smoke ... and the remains of a toaster - not only had it burnt the toast - it burnt itself!  So I am also now thinking that my smoke-detector batteries are dead!

OK - next plan - once I can see and breath - I still need tea ... I know - toasted cheese sandwich - as I clipped that close the clip broke!

Who said cooking was easy ...

And - Who still wonders where my user-name comes from!!
