On Sunday (yesterday) he went on an 11 mile fun ride which involved a couple of gallops, some jumps and ditches to negotiate and generally "hanging out" with about 125 other horses!
I couldn't take him - as I don't do secular things on a Sunday - even going to see James would be out ... so going for a ride was also out. As that is my personal choice, it was unfair that DJ should miss out - so when Toni asked if Ros could borrow him, I was pleased that he was able to go!
So DJ and Ros & Junior and Toni went in the lorry and had a great fun ride together.
Ros phoned me later and left a message to say he had been a good boy - behaved himself and was, by then, out in his field telling Smudge all about what a brave and clever boy he had been!!
When I went to get him in this morning he was certainly wide awake - looking around - I suppose he was wondering what was in store for him today!
However it was a simple 4 mile walk round the block - with Toni riding Smudge and leading Badger. We did meet up with Ros and Cherry for a short time, as well.
The weather was great - windy but dry.
DJ came back still wide awake, but once he had been fed I think he was glad to be able to get out to his field - as I left he was busy rolling over and over ... and over!
