One Very Brave Boy.

This morning we had an early and short ride, as toni is going to the other side of England for her Nan's funeral (tomorrow), which is why I have Kai.

Anyway, as it was cool and damp, it meant I didn't have to plait DJ, but he was muddy and damp - so trying to get his saddle area clean and dry was hard work.

Ros and Shadow came up to us, and Toni and Smudge, & DJ and I went "up the road and back"

Well, that's what happened - but if it hadn't been for DJ it might have been a different story!

Smudge completely refused to go past a trailer parked ina gateway, just up the road from Toni's drive ... because of that Shadow was spooked.  So, I asked DJ to walk on, and head help high - he did.

What a good boy!

It was great to see him do that, especially as Smudge had spooked, and he normally takes the lead when the 3 are out together.

So, all in all, a short ride, but a very (on my part) proud one.  He really did deserve his carrot when we got back - and I am sure that Conrad will have heard all about it all day long!
