While Toni is away, I am helping with the horse sitting, so as I arrived today 4 heads looked up hopefully .... DJ kept his head down and pretended he hadn't seen me!!!
Anyway, as Conrad started walking towards me, DJ then decided that if there was a carrot, it belonged to him ... so he trotted over in the hope of getting to me first!
Yes, he had his carrot, and then walked to his box, where he had a handfull of hay waiting for him.
As he finished that I started grooming - I had just lifted up one of his feet, when 2 dogs up the road decided to have an argument, and not to be out-done, Kai (who was in the opposite stable to DJ) decided to join in! To say it suprised poor DJ is a bit of an understatement!
Still, got him calmed - and groomed, and ready, in time to leave just before 10 am.
We walked up to Ros, to meet her, and another new horse, a gelding this time - but yet again withpout a name.
He is young, so we were only going up to the farm and back, and I think DJ realised that he was the boss - as he was such a good boy. There was a lot of traffic today, but it all slowed down for us so that was good.
Once back, I fed DJ and took him out to his field - then fed Badger, Junior and Smudge; and took hay out to all 5 horses.
Then it was time to set off home - stopping for milk on the way. Sadly I put the alarm on and forgot that with Kai in the front seat he would set off the sensors ... Yes, I came out the shop to hear a car alarm going off - mine!!! OOOppps!!
Still he accepted a cuddle and an apology (that's if he could still hear what I said!)
