As you all know DJ is a dappled grey - which essentially means he is all shades of grey through to white (and this will lighten every year).
When I went to get him in today to see how is was, it was hard to say if he was a Bay or a Grey ... yes, we have had rain, and he has been rolling!
I gave his tail and mane a good groom and checked the rest of him for bumps and bruises ... as well as giving his lower front legs a thorough check.
The sores are dry and healing well - there is some local warmth around the areas and a little general swelling - but otherwise he is doing well.
Toni came out and I trotted him up, and he trotted himself back (which is a good sign) ... and on evry 10th step he was just slightly sore ... but yes, another step on his recovery.
we stood chatting for a few minutes until Toni then pointed out the bit I hadn't seen (a combination of being in a box ... and colour-blind) ... he had a red face!!! Yes, he aslo had a bit of orange on his lips.
The orange is carrot - of course.
The red - well he trashed a head collar and lost the next one - so I bought him a new one ... guess what colour it is ... red!!
So, all in all he is a very colourful boy at present - just glad the sores are healing as the gels used are luminous colours as well!!
