Not all horses (in England) are left in head-collars for safety reasons - but DJ lives in fields that are overlooked both by Toni's house as well as neighbours - so all of her horses wear head-collars ... well not this morning.
So he stood watching me walk towards him, with just a rope in my hands ...
Sadly, fo him, he had forgotten that I had been well trained by Toni - and had worked in stables ... so I can make a temporary head-collar ... and thus led him out of his field. I could almost hear Smudge sniggering behind us!!
So - he went into his box - and I went back to the field to find it! The furthest corner was where I started - yes, good choice! As that is where it was - with one of the clips snapped in two! So I got back and got some string to repair it - so that he had something to wear again.
I win!!! DJ lost!!!!
Toni brought Smudge in and we just went round the easiest block, as Toni has a really bad cold. Still it was great to be out - in the sunshine, even though that also meant the flies were also out and about.
Once home - a feed, a carrot (does he deserve it!) and then back out to his field - wearing his repaired head-collar - What story he will tell the others is anyones guess!
