Confusing The Week ... For DJ & Jiffy! 
6th-Nov-2008 08:06 pm
DJ - plaited!
I do know it is Thursday today - yet this morning started off as a Wednesday ... I brought in DJ, groomed and tacked him ... and then Ros and Rosie arrived, just in time for Toni to have finished clipping Smudge ...

And so the 6 of us set up for a walk around the block.

We kept 99% at walk - and DJ went well.  He is still a little hesitant while trotting, which I had to ask him to do briefly a couple of times ... But all in all, great news.

And, the good news continues - he was pretty happy about the traffic, so whether it is my positive leg-reinforcement, his ear-muffs ... or just happy to be out, I don't know.  I just was happy to have a lovely ride with him today.

The back to his field ... where, before he spoke to Conrad, he got down and had a good roll!!

Then not just content to confuse the other 5 by letting them think it was Wednesday, I have now confused Mum and Dad ... and Jiffy!

I went to the dentist this afternoon as I had broken a front tooth - she repairedit, so that is good news.

As my dentist is in Torquay, I have decided to take a long weekend ... especially as I am at a conference all day on Saturday ... so poor Jiffy wont know where he is!!

Well Jiffy can't always have things his way =)

I'm glad you and DJ had a good ride and things are starting to get back to normal there, with the earmuffs.

How did you manage to break your front tooth?

Poor Jiffy - still I can spend longer teasing him!!

Yes, Thank You, Kal - it was lovely to get out for an almost normal ride - just the speed and distance to work on ... The rest was great.

Don't know about the tooth - I was actually drinking a cup of tea .. LOL However, I have always used my teeth to bite cotton, wool etc - even strip electric cable when I was in my teens! So I suppose, I am not kind to my teeth - that and adoring toffees!!! Still all repaired now - so that is great.

Good news about the improvement.

Have fun at the conference :)

Yes - it was lovely to see him out and about - and enjoying it. Next week I shall keep it slow as well.

Have you been able to ride recently - Hope so?

The conference is part of my 32 hours CPD - and only about 1/2 hours drive from Mum and Dads ... so that's good. Interesting lectures booked as well!

I get days mixed up all the time. It's sad really, lol

It's funny how easy it is to do that!

Thanks - yes ... good news, and bad news.

Still, the tooth is repaired, so that story ended well, too.

*hugs* back.

Hope so too - I am planning to take it easy for him all wek - and then (hopefully) that will let him settle and feel confident as well.
