Over the years we have all had people let us down, or stab us in the back - but I have had my faith in friendship restored today.
When I went to see DJ it was to be met by my friend, who has DJ in free livery on her land. If that wasn't enough she came to me with a key to say that she had come across a large crate that she had bought, put a padlock on and had put all my tack in to keep it safe. She had cleared an area of her barn so that I could keep feed, hay etc there as well as finding an old wardrobe so I could keep any clothing there that I wanted.
So - Friends do exist - Don't give up!!
Anyway - back to DJ.
Once in what is his box, I undid some of his straps and while he was munching on a bit of hay, I sewed it back on. Everyso often he would try to see what I was doing - but as he didn't give me marks for the sewing I let him do what he wanted.
Then I checked his feet, re-did all the straps, gave him a carrot and got blown back to his field.
I promised him I would see him soon and did ask him not to dismantle his clothing - whether he was listening, or not is another matter!!
