Adventure before dementia

Ask Anything MEME

I have done this MEME in the past - but couldn't resist snagging again - Thank you rivertempest !!

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So ask me something you want to know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

I really like this meme. And you can ask anything, nothing is verboten, taboo, forbidden

So - go ahead .... ask!!

DJ - plaited!

Long Holiday Is Over .... Well For The Day!

Yesterday I walked out to see DJ ... 3 weeks after I had last ridden.  The holiday. my cold, then the fact my breathing is completely screwed up has given DJ a 3 week holiday.

As he first spotted me he whinnied - which was more than cute.  I called, and he called back - then went back to eating!!!!

He was happy to see me - and carrot. though and walked in well.

My first job, while getting the breathing to settle was to cut about 8" off his tail.  He lives out, and by leaving the tail to drag in the mud, ruins it.  So, although I hate doing it, once the wet starts it is something I do.  Then his bridle inch got trimmed ... feet picked out, brushed ... yes he had obviously had a snooze on his left-hand-side, as the right had been "power washed" in the rain!  The his tail was conditioned, brushed and combed; and finally his mane brushed, combed and plaited.

He got ready and we had a couple of minutes wait for Toni and Junior ... Toni had to tighten the clenches in her shoes, before it was safe for Junior to be out.  Then we walked up the road to meet Ros and Shadow.

Our Wednesday ride - and good weather.

We didn't go far, as my breathing was poor, as were Junior's shoes!!!!  So just round the block.

However still a bit of a scare - there were cattle in a field they hadn't been in befre - How dare they?  Some scarpered to the other side, others kept pace - DJ couldn't seem to decide which set he approved of!

Still it was a good ride - great to be out ... And even better for DJ as I told him I wouldn't be back until next week!!

366 MEME - Day 251 - More Cleaning

No work, feeling rough, as I can't breathe - but still trying to stay positive.  So, my lounge has had a good clean today .... Not a great pic as its hard to get a full idea within a smallish room.  However, having seen my treatment room earlier in the week, now this, at least you can say that "minimalist" is something I am not!
