When he was groomed, plaited and tacked we joined Toni and Smudge and went up the road and met up with Ros and Cherry for a "stroll" down to the village Church and back!
It was an hours ride - and other than there being quite a lot of traffic this morning it was great. the only problem was as we went round one of the bends in the road a blackberry bramble snagged the silk off my hat. so we had to retrieve that before continuing on our way.
We were out for about an hour - and by the time we got back DJ's shoes were just starting to get clacky (that means they are gradually getting loose and they rattle as he moves) - still the farrier is booked for tomorrow.
Once back, sponged down and fed it was back to their field for DJ and Smudge - to recover from the rigors of their walk!!
