Quote - Bishop T.D. Jakes
"How can you say that God has me exactly where He wants me to be, when I have never felt this lonely, and I've never felt this sad, and I've never felt this depressed. And it is a shameful place, and it is a painful place, and it is a tearful place, and it is a breaking place. But I came to tell you that God's Strength is made perfect in weakness, and when this is all over, God is going to get some glory out of this..."
Yes, it is quite scarey as he was such a good boy today.
He walked in from his field without stopping to try to eat. He glared at the poles near his stable door, but walked in without running me over in the process. He stood and had another thorough groom, thus giving me enough to stuff the pillows as well as the duvet ... he even had those "hard to reach places" brushed! He had his mane combed and silicon spray put on it. He let his tack go out, eithout trying to wriggle while I was doing up his girth.
We only went up the road and back for about a mile as Toni was riding Badger. We saw Ros and Cherry; but for the whole time he was back he walked as good-as-gold. he even stretched himself to walk at a faster pace than normal.
So - he really did deserve his carrot - especially as he also walked straight back to his field without trying to stop and eat.
What a good boy.
Word of warning though - there will be a DJ picture tour up some time soon!
Sometime I just say we have gone up the road and back ... it tends to be where we go when we go out by ourselves - we turn a mile up the road ... having left the house and gone in the opposite direction to the previous pictures of the farm.
Below the cut is the juction that we turn round at.
Over the last year, I have mentioned that we have gone through some forestry - managed land, growing mostly pine trees.
well, if we hadn't turned at the last point but had kepr going, this is where we end up. Spme of it is open for horses, but for most of it now you have to pay an annual fee - so we don't get to go so often, as there isn't as much to explore.
I often mention that we have gone via the Church when we are on our travels - so this 6th and final pic scam is the biggest as it contains some of the rest of DJ's roads, as well as a couple of pictures of the Church ... all seen from DJ's point of view of course.
