Escorting The Ladies ...


Well, it's a hard job but DJ coped fairly well with the stress!

I will admit, my heart sank when I saw him this morning - he was wet mud from top to tail ... and everything in between!

Still he is continuing to be a good boy and meet me at the gate and walk in nicely with me.  For the next hour I attempted to make him look half decent - concentrating on making sure where his sadlle, lag straps and bridle rest were comfortable for him.

We were ready just before 10, and Toni got Junior and the 4 of us walked up the road to meet Ros and Rosie ... so as I said, 5 ladies he had with him!

It was dry (sort of!), but very misty.  We always wear reflectors, but if it had been any worse then I would have been reluctant to go out.  It's not worth the risk - especially when you ride a fog-coloured horse!

We went down to the Church, and then down the road and back up, before turning into Well Lane - and at long last a chance for a canter.  It has been ages since DJ was able to do down hills and cantering - so a great big YAY - he was fine - and really enjoyed it!

Some of you reading this may have joined DJ's story in the last 6 months - well, if so, and for those who want a reminder, the route I am talking about is photographed Here   The previos pages to that are other routes we use, btw.

Well we got back, damp, but tired, for the best of reasons ... and I was so happy.

DJ had something to eat, after being settled, and then back out - but to a different field.  The electric fencer has broken where he was - and he is too great an escape artist to stay put - so he and Conrad have been moved for the time being.  As I left the 2 were cantering round their new home.
