This morning we had an early and short ride, as toni is going to the other side of England for her Nan's funeral (tomorrow), which is why I have Kai.
Anyway, as it was cool and damp, it meant I didn't have to plait DJ, but he was muddy and damp - so trying to get his saddle area clean and dry was hard work.
Ros and Shadow came up to us, and Toni and Smudge, & DJ and I went "up the road and back"
Well, that's what happened - but if it hadn't been for DJ it might have been a different story!
Smudge completely refused to go past a trailer parked ina gateway, just up the road from Toni's drive ... because of that Shadow was spooked. So, I asked DJ to walk on, and head help high - he did.
What a good boy!
It was great to see him do that, especially as Smudge had spooked, and he normally takes the lead when the 3 are out together.
So, all in all, a short ride, but a very (on my part) proud one. He really did deserve his carrot when we got back - and I am sure that Conrad will have heard all about it all day long!
