DJ - plaited!

Only A Day Late! But He Brings Pics!


Yesterday I had arranged to meet the farrier at lunchtime.

Now, because DJ lives "out" his legs are wet and muddy, so I got there at 11am, so as to start to dry them off - He was happy as it was damp in the air, and he was in his box eating hay!

Anyway - 11.so ... and Ian arrives!

So, I had to put his leg-supports on, and apologise to Ian for how muddy he still was, despite my best efforts!

Anyway - while getting him in, I did his bit if the MEME ... yes, mountainheather  had asked for some DJ pictures.   Here he is, just straight in from the field.

After the farrier had finished I fed him and took him back to his field, so he could show off his new shoes to Conrad!.

On the way home I drove up to take a picture of his scarey oily patch, that kalinda001  had requested - but it was so damp and muddy, I could hardly see it - I should have taken DJ with me - Anyway - I am standing on the patch to take a photo of the road ... so, almost there Kal!

Photo MEME - Some Final Answers!


I think this is now the end of my photo MEME - However if I have forgotten you (Ooooops) or if there was something else thet you wanted to see a picture of, please do let me know.

These pictures are for kudagirl , who asked for pictures of my hands and rings and for beanbeans  who asked for a favourite tree.  There are one or two I like, but this is a lovely one.

It also shows, along with the second picture, that ... YES ... Bude is hilly.  Someone commented that my road looked hilly - yes, it is all up and down here!

Photography, Work ... And Another MEME



Yes, ukchrispI managed to find a local(ish) camera club - Launceston ... 45 mins drive away, and went to a meeting yeasterday. It turns out that a few from Bude go, so we should be able to share some of the driving.

One of the club was one of the guys that I did my City & Guilds with back in the mid 90's.

Now I just need to focus - and get some time set aside!

I don't suppose I will dare enter any of the competitions, but it is what I need, so thanks for the final push!!

In other news -

My business is picking up a bit - so all in all I am feeling that 2009 is going much better than the last 2 years - so THANK YOU all for sticking with me, and kicking me when I have needed it.

So, I shall end up by finishing this scribble with a MEME I snagged from mountainheather

Ask me a question about each of the following:

1. Friends
2. Sex
3. Music
4. Drugs
5. Love
6. Livejournal


No matter how rude or confidential I will answer the question honestly. Then post this in your journal and see what questions you get asked!

Spike - LiveJournal

LJ


I posted a question MEME a few hours ago, here , if you missed it.

One of the questions I was asked was how long I had been with LJ - and so I checked and it is 3 years ... today!

So Happy Birthday debris4spike  !!!

Meeting The Horse With No Name.

Wednesday - and lovely weather - and time to get back to a normal routine!

Wish I had my camear today though, because as I went to get DJ in from the field, he had this huge blob of mud between his eyes - maybe he had been trying to do a head-stand!!

Anyway - in we came and he had a mouthful of hay and a groom - very hard with a damp horse - but he needed to be comfortable to wear his tack.

Toni came out, tacked up Smudge, I tacked up DJ just in time for Ros to arrive ... riding ?????

She collected another horse on Monday - seemed nice, mixed breed.  We asked her name and Ros said that she hadn't come with one - so Toni asked what she was called and Ros said that she hadn't named her.

To me, that is so, so sad.  Ros cares for her animals, they are beautifully turned out ... yet that extra something is missing

Oh well - other than that it was a lovely ride.  We went down to the Church and round the block ... a reasonable amount of traffic, but overall it was beautifull - plenty to chat about - and in the sunshine ... Yay!!

Once back I fed DJ and then walked him out to his field - carrying hay for him and Conrad ... I am sure DJ hoped I would let him have it and forget to tell Conrad - but in the end he did agree to share!!
