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 ...


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!
