DJ - plaited!

Yay - We Have Been Out!!

This morning DJ walked down his field towards me.  So that was lovely for two reasons -
     a)  He was pleased to see me (or the carrot!)
     b)  He was still sound ... and it's downhill slightly, so great to watch.

So, I brought him in, put his boots on him, and his bridle and off we went!

We only walked to just past where Ros lives, and back.  It was hard to know how much to make him do, but I think I got it correct, as by the time he was walking back across the yard his stride was just off.

It was only about 300yds (each way), but great to see him out - and he was OK about the traffic.  mind you, as I was walking next to him, the traffic all slowed.

So, it was a great start.  I want to start these few times very, very slowly.  Both to re-build his confidence and his strength, but day 1 was lovely.

Yay - he deserved his feed ... and a carrot!!

On a further note Rosie is better (well, except she has now twisted a shoulder!)  So, whether it was a mild dose of Strangles we will never know, but the swellings have gone down, and her temperature is back to normal.

So, double Yay!

Mini Pic Scam!

You can tell I am having a quiet day today - I'm filling your pages!

Anyway, I took a few pics over the weekend, so thought I would share 5 of them.  They are not great, photographically, but show Jiffy, a couple of views local to Mum and Dad's as well as a picture in their garden.

Your result for What Your Taste in Art Says About You Test...

Traditional, Vibrant, and Tasteful

25 Islamic, 17 Impressionist, 20 Ukiyo-e, -32 Cubist, -41 Abstract and 21 Renaissance!

Islamic art is developed from many sources: Roman, Early Christian, and Byzantine styles were taken over in early Islamic architecture; the architecture and decorative art of pre-Islamic Persia was of paramount significance; Central Asian styles were brought in with various nomadic incursions; and Chinese influences . Islamic art uses many geometical floral or vegetable designs in a repetitive pattern known as arabesque. It is used to symbolize the transcendent, indivisible and infinite nature of Allah.

People that like Islamic art tend to be more traditional people that appreciate keeping patterns that they learned and experienced from their past. It is not to say that they are not innovative personalities, they just do not like to let go of their roots. They like to put new ideas into details and make certain that they will work before sharing them with others. Failure is not something they like to think about because they are more interested in being successful and appreciated for their intelligence. These people can also be or like elaborate things in their life as long as they are tasteful. They tend to prefer geometric patterns and vibrant colors.
