DJ - plaited!

Was He Hiding ... Or Just In Disguise?

I said last week that he looked like an adorable teddy bear ... I didn't say quite the same this morning!!

The even funnier thing was that Toni had moved all the horses round, so as I was walking out to his field to collect him this morning ... Suddenly there was this pile of wet mud walking towards me! He was in, what I thought was the wrong field, and so covered in mud it was hard to say where he ended and the ground started - so I just had to presume that it was actually DJ that I was talking to! He seemed to think the carrot in my hand belonged to him anyway!

I walked in with him, and all I could do was make sure his face and his saddle area was fairly clear of muck - so nothing rubbed.

I then tacked him up, and with Toni riding Junior (and leading Smudge) we just went around the block. I don't think the others wanted to be seen with the mud-monster too much in case we were recognised!

Then back home - a feed - and back to play in the mud again for him!

Talking Of Baths And Carols!


The weekend seemed fairly hectic - getting mum and Dad's house organised for the carol evening ... Christmas shopping ... visiting some friends who are ill ... the final of Strictly Com eDancing ...

and

Giving Jiffy a bath!

He is actually a good boy - and loves having a bath - and seeing as he also loves plaing, he is usually needing a clean!  Well, on Sunday, a couple of the people from our Chapel wanted to meet him, so when i got in from taking him for a walk - it was into the bathtub for him -

When dad and I left Chapel in the morning we were told there would be about 20 people coming - in the end there were 35!!!!

Having said that we had a great time - with each family choosing a carol - ann deciding on 2 verses from it.  Finishing with a final choice from the kids - who picked "Away in a Manger".  Then Dad said a few closing thoughts, and we finished with his choice of carol ... and then time for a cup of tea/coffee ... and cakes/mince pies.

It was  a lovely evening - with a great atmosphere.

Hope that you all had a great weekend as well!
