As I did go to Toni's this morning ... and got blown into his field, so that I could give him a carrot. Gale force winds again ... hence the "bounce" icon!
However the real reason for not riding is that her 4 year old (unbroken) 17hand gelding, Conrad, had escaped this morning - onto the road! Fortunately he was so spooked that he didn't move from the verge - but to be woken up while still dark with someone telling you that a horse is loose is panic enough! Anyway - he was OK and Secret, his companion, hadn't left the field. So it was a case of major fencing work to do ...
But the good news is ...
It wasn't DJ ... this time!!
Anyway - I spent about an hour repairing the electric tape - not easy in the wind (with cold hands!). It had been broken in a couple of places by Conrad, and had then wrapped around other fence posts, etc. After that I then left Toni and her husband to finish off the actual structural work. It is a two-handed job, which they have done many times.
So I came back and have now got some decorations up in my treatment room. I want to get my Christmas star-lights up in my lounge window as half the road is already decorated! So that will begin to make me feel more organised - I hope!
I got all my foreign cards posted yesterday and have started making the British ones. I even went through my presents and found out how much I still need to buy ... loads!! ... And the worst is I still can't decide what to get Toni ... DJ has already bought his present to her ... stealing one great idea ... LOL
OH Well - this isn't getting the lounge decorated! So I had better get on!!
