Escorting The Ladies Again! 
5th-Dec-2007 05:47 pm
DJ - plaited!
It must be his new shoes - or something, as yet again he had the important task of escorting 5 ladies on their trip around!

He was very pleased to come in this morning - and Smudge was hopeful that I had come for him as well.  Gale force winds along with rain are not the best of weather to pass a restful night.  Still, it meant that DJ was wet, but not too muddy!

So, as I said, DJ escorted
Junior, Toni, Cherry, Ros and myself through the gale force winds, but at least it wasn't raining.  The trouble with a windy day, as any rider will tell you, is that wind whistles round .... where wind should never travel!  Still the bad weather worked to our advantage as there was very little other traffic around, so we could all have a good gossip, riding 3 abreast, most of the time.

DJ really wanted his carrot though - for such a busy day and the thought of more bad weather to come!

Oh! I can only imagine how nice riding a horse is, love the way you describe the attitude of the horses in your posts.

When I started learning to ride about 10 years ago, my frien Toni said that "If you are nice to them, they may be nice to you" ... As I have always been around pets it wasn't too hard to know that. As iI began actaully spending time around them I realise, like humans how different they all are!

So long as he doesn't expect such a treat all the time!

DJ is becoming quite the lady's man!
Do you find that he acts a bit different on windy days? Our horses used to get a bit jumpy on windy days, like they were on high alert. Ooh, watch out! The wind is out to get you!

Yes - windy days! It is something I don't like, but have to get used to living on The West Coast - gales are nothing unusual!

"The wind is out to get you!" ... But in DJ land - everything iout to get him!

Mmmm... carrots... yes! He should get carrots for braving the wind :-)
That's good that there was little traffic to distract you all.
It's all about the shoes.

I know some people (not me actually) have a shoe fettish - I shall have to watch that DJ doesn't let this develope!

Who needs Kevin Costner as a bodyguard if you have DJ :D *hugs*

Kevin Coster's sword ... not something I would let DJ play with! He can get in enough trouble as he is!!

sounds like the title of a story ... I wonder if it would then go on to be a best-selling film! DJ would have to be the star - but who could play me? (And I would need to have James in a role ... mmmmmm!!)
