DJ - plaited!

DJ - 10 Today!

This morning was a big day in the boy's life - He goes into double figures! Very scary to realise that 10 years ago, today, he was a suprise black baby, in the middle of a very wet field!! I showed you his baby pictures last year, here if you missed that post.

Now, another year has passed, and he has reached the grand old age of 10, and as I have already posted here he had an extra special carrot when I went to get him in from his field. I had worried when I rode him on Monday that by now he would be missing a shoe, but he has been a good boy and all 4 are still on.

So, I brought him in and gave him another carrot, and a pamper, before tacking him up.

We then made our way up to meet Ros and Shadow, so they could share the birthday boy's day! He was really well behaved, and weirdly his shoes, which were clacky on Monday, sounded fine! In fact, Shadow was the one with a clacky shoe today!

We went for a lovely ride round - down to the Church and through the village ... and had a good time. DJ must have known he is now "mature" as he was a really good boy. He didn't spook, even when some tractors, and then cattle trucks, came past us.

Back home, a feed, another carrot .... and then back out to the field that Conrad is in. So, no doubt they will have plans for tonight!

MEMEing Again!

Don't know about you, but it is cold here?  Still, when I spoe to Mum earlier (as I do every day) she said that Jiffy was upset as it was raining ... so, at least we haven't had that.

I've ended up having a lazy afternoon, and now feel guilty!  So, before tea I'm going to do this meme I snagged from mountainheather  last week ... won't put it off any longer!

Harry The Eagle

Well, one day Harry the Eagle waited at the nest for Mary, his darling of 10 glorious years. After a while when she didn't return he went looking and found her. She had been shot dead!

Harry was devastated, but after about six minutes of mourning he decided that he must get himself another mate, but since there weren't any lady eagles available he'd have to cross the feather barrier. So he flew off to find a new mate. He found a lovely dove and brought her back to the nest.
