Although for DJ it must be hard work as he carries half of the mud of his field around with him. Yes, as fast as I brush him he gets down and rolls again. Still this morning he also managed to bring in a couple of stones in his hooves. He usually does that - why (and how) I haven't a clue. When he was at the stables he was the only one who did this on a regular basis. Today one of the stones was stuck - and as I managed to free it, the stone moved suddenly and ... ouch ... me, not him ... I bent my thumb (and the nail) backwards!!
I saw Toni later on in the day - and ... somehow she has got me to agree to take DJ to a show ... The only advantage is that as it is a week after "Cardiff" I shall have that to take my mind off my nerves ... but then ... HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I took him to a show 3 years ago - but that was an equine one, and he was in an early class so we rushed then and "threw" him (and me in)! ... This is an agricultural show - so lots more different things going on - and 2 different classes he is in ... and I know Toni will try to persuade me to jump him. If my nerves keep together - then at least I can help him with his - But ...
So, for now I must keep thinking ... Cardiff, James, Cardiff, James .... Not that I really need an excuse to do that, anyway!
