Airline Announcements!

Having just received and read this list, it makes me wonder why I would ever want to fly!!

Airline Announcements!

On landing, the stewardess said, 'Please be sure to take all of your belongings. If you're going to leave anything, please make sure it's something we'd like to have.

DJ - plaited!

DJ - Shiny Shoes Again.

Today I got to Toni's at about 11.30am as I wanted time to get DJ in, leave him with some hay while I told her about my decisions, and then groom him! As it turned out, I got there at the same time that he did! Toni was also having Conrad's feet trimmed, so wanted them both in, and had just got back from the fiels as I drew up.

So, we went in, had coffee and chatted ... and chatted.

Ian was, as ever, early ... the only farrier to do that I think! He did Conrad first, so that he didn't have to smell DJ's feet burning, and watch him disappear in a billow of smoke. If any of you missed my full post, last year, then have a look to see what I mean.

DJ is usually pretty good (as most well trained horses are), at standing for the hour that it takes to have his new shoes on.  I was quite suprised to see he still had the old ones on, and Ian was amazed to see his off-hind still there as it only had 2 inner nails left.

I took a couple of pictures, and this is him bare-foot!  As you can see, Toni and I were chatting so much, I didn't get time to groom him!


After Ian had finished, I gave him a feed and then back to his field, so he and Conrad could compare notes!



15 Book MEME

This is a MEME I saw on amyxaphania s LJ this morning and decided to snag -

Fifteen books you've read that will always stick with you.

So, here goes .... in no particular order :-

1) Anne of Green Gables (and series) - L.M. Montgomery
Mum has the full series, and I was given book 1 when I was 10, which I read and loved.  Mum then lent me the rest.  To read of an un-wanted 10 year old moving and settling into a loving family, and then going on to university, marrying, and seeing her children in World war 1.  A great series, and one I still re-read.
