One Very Wet ... And Very Cold Boy!

DJ - plaited!
I went out to see DJ this morning, as the plan had been to ride - but the weekends wamth had gone, left with a cold wind and torrential rain.  I got to Toni's the same time as Ros, to say she wasn't going to ride, which proves how bad it was as that is the first time I have known her to call it off.

We went and chatted to Toni and then I walked out to DJ to give him and Conrad a carrot - only to find them shivering - yes, they were shaking.

So, I gave them their carrots and went back to speak to Toni, who then moved Conrad, while I took DJ into another field, with better hedges, but less fencing ( a worry for escape-artist DJ), but the moving and the change of scenery soon had them galloping around, which thawed them out.  DJ went to speak to Smudge, and the electric fence caught him, so hopefully he will respect the tape for another few days!

So, although it was still raining, I was happier when I left as they were both now settling down to eat the grass in their new (temporary) home.

Awww...poor DJ!!

It´s been raining here since yesterday evening as well..yesterday we had a hot summerday with 25°C and today we only have 15°C..*shivers with DJ*

Oh and he was touching the electric fence? Again poor DJ! My cousins horse Lucy needs to experience that from time to time as well, bc she´s an escape artist herself...going all the places she is forbidden to go! LOL

*hugs you close*

Thanks - yes, we need to hug DJ to keep him warm as well.

Electric fencing - does slow DJ down, but he soon forgets and attempts to go exploring again!

*hugs DJ and gives him an extra carrot*

LOL Lucy soon forgets about those nasty fences as well..she always breaks out to go into the chamber where the feed pellets for the cows is hidden..she even manages to open the door! She knows it´s bad for her, bc she´s having laminitis and it´s getting worse if she eats those pellets, but as they are so delicious, she doesn´t stay away from it!

escape-artist DJ? Hehe. Has he managed to escape before? And where did he go?

Yes, his most classic escape was the first time I went to London to see James ... Toni walked out of her kitchen to get her washing in, to see a slumbering pony lying in the sunshine - on their lawn!!!! Well, the grass was longer than in the field as they hadn't got round to cutting it that week!
