He was great when I was grooming him - and didn't figit while I was tacking him up.
After how brilliant he was yesterday, and then this, I will admit my heart sank a bit!
Anyway, Ros and Rosie arrived, Toni rode Smudge and led Junior ... and off we went.
There was quite a lot of large traffic on the roads, including some men replacing some of the overhead power cables - but he was great ... although he did sidestep slightly, when Rosie slammed into him as she lept away from a reversing car.
All in all he was great.
In fact on the way home, Toni and Rosie were teasing us - so we actually went in front for about 1/2 mile, to prove how good he was being.
We were out for about and hour and a quarte, in lovely sunny weather - so all in all a really beautiful way to spend a morning.
It is great to see that DJ's leg is still holding well, with the strappings - so that is good news.
He looked so clean this morning when we left - Ros said that it looked as if he had been power-washed ... rain!!!! But, sadly, by the time we got back he was very hot and sweaty ... all the horses were, but he is the only one who isn't clipped - so if you think about it, ewxercising in a fur coat would not be ideal!
I towelled him down thoroughly, brushed him ... then cleared the box etc before giving him a small feed - and back out to his field ... and a lovely roll!! He didn't look quite so clean after that!
