Adventure before dementia

Eating Tips For The Holiday Season

If you haven't already read the list that winsomeone posted yesterday - then you must.

It gives the perfect list of hints to get you through the festive season ... LOL!! 

For those who don't have time to read it - I will quote her final thought :-

Remember this  motto to  live by:
"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Adventure before dementia

My Jaykub

This picture was really in answer to a comment that classicanne01 made to one of my posts. She sent me a photograph of one of her "neighbours" and I said that the horses markings reminded me of my Jaykub.

For those who don't know, Jaykub was my first horse who died in 2003 at the age of 10.   The icon is in honour of one of his nick-names ... I used to call him "Hero" ... well, either that or "Twit"!!

Anyway - here is the picture, Anne, so you see what I mean! But thought I would put it here so others could see him as well!

DJ - plaited!

2 Rides Today!!

... and No, he didn't get extra carrots!

I know - I am mean!

Anyway, it was a cold morning again when I brought him in - but as the sun was out he was basically dry enough to brush. 

Once ready we headed out up the road with Toni and Junior.  The funny thing was that he turned in at Cherry's gate - obviously realising that we hadn't ridden together this week - Isn' he a clever boy!  (Although I suppose if he was really clever he would have known that today is Thursday and we usually meet up on a Wednesday!)

Anyway, we only went about 2/3 of a mile up the road before turning back.  Junior was due for new shoes, so had to be back in time for the farrier.

When we got back to the yard, I didn't get off - poor DJ - I sat there, finger-combing his mane while Toni un-tacked Junior and then tacked up Badger!  Yes - he hadn't been out all week, so we did a similar length walk.

DJ was not impressed - the fact that we were out for less time than normal didn't occur to him - all he knew was that he had been out twice!!

Anyway - a carrot and feed later and he went out to his field - at quite a brisk pace - he was probably worried I would change my mind and take him out again!

I brought Smudge back in when I came, so poor DJ didn't even have someone in his field to moan to!!
