Violette & Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! It seems like it's been such a long time. I guess with all the goings-on with the big boy, I haven't been getting much air time. But that doesn't mean that #1 has forgotten me! In fact, she has been coming to visit even more often than usual, and she never forgets my apples and carrots,

We have a big hay dispenser in our field:

But if I stand here, by the fence, I know she'll come!

You see! I told you she would come!

You did bring me my carrots and apples, right, #1?

And here is my Mama, Hôtesse, also waiting for #1 to bring her her apples each day:

She has the loveliest eyelashes! 

Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend! I am doing well and am now back to being out in my field 24/7. I have to tell you I love the great outdoors, so that works for me!

#1 says it's because I like to stand there and look romantic...

I can also exercise when I feel like it!

Of course, I come right over when I see that #1 has arrived:

You're going to make it worth my while, right, #1?

We're expecting a visitor this weekend! He's arriving at Poupounette Central this evening and will come and visit us tomorrow. He is #1's nephew, visiting all the way from Chile!

Tommy Thursday

Tommy: Well, the days are drawing in (we move to winter time on October 30th) and it's been getting cooler and rainier, but #1 and know how to stay busy! We have been going for our walks in the fields, where Hôtesse, Doucette and Wowie are always waiting for their apples. I also accompany her whenever possible, even when she goes to business meetings. So, yesterday, we were here:

That's the place where #1 had her photo exhibition last year! Now, she is working on organising an exhibition for a well-known Japanese horse photographer. So, there was also some office meeting time... 

I have to sit quietly for some time at such meetings, but that's OK, because when we get home, I get to run in the fields!

I'm a lucky woofie!

Whiskers on Wednesday

Vidock: Neighs, Everyone! The Big V here! #1 has been having rather a fun time with her camera lately, and we thought we would show you the results Now, how about this for a whiskery close-up?

Genji; It is a universally acknowledged truth that I have the BEST whiskers at Poupounette Central, and I can prove it!

Tommy: I have whiskers too!

 Sei-Chan: A picture is worth a thousand words...

Tama-Chan: The Queen rests her case.

Da Beebs: Baby whiskers!

Violette Whiskers!

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Today, I would like to address a comment someone made last week about my use of a pillow. As you know, I am the Queen of the Poupounette and everyone here knows it. It is perfectly proper, in fact expected, for a Queen to require a pillow upon which to lay her head! Like so:

I have yet to convince #1 to put pillows in all my favourite sleeping places...

I shall be working on that.

Clearly, this will require time and energy...

Manly Monday

Genji: I think this is an exceptionally manly photo of me!

Da Beebs: Well, I think mine is manlier!

Tommy: I do not consider myself in competition with anyone! And #1 always calls me her Goden Boy anyway!

Vidock: Not only am I grey, but I am also the greatest! Neeeeeeiiiiighs!

Oh, and I got properly measured. I am 1.78m at the withers, which is 17.2 hands in horse terms, for a weight of 880 kilos, or 1,950lbs!

Soothing Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: As you can imagine, the past week has been a tad stressful for #1, and we have done our best to provide her with as much calming influence as possible.

I did my bit in working hard to bring down her blood pressure:

But I did also snuggle with Tommy:

Sei-Chan was good about snuggling with #1:

But she was never far away from her precious Tommy either!

 You all know about Da Genj cuddling with his #1...

Here is My Beebs getting a passing cuddle from Tommy:

Once again, Violette sends a smooch:

The Big V has been a tad busy with other matters, but he is looking forward to sharing some manly shots with all of you tomorrow!

Sei-Chan: Well, #1 has abandoned us for the day to go to Versailles for a family lunch, as there is a cousin visiting from California. I suppose it's just about OK as she will be back this evening. Oh, and on the being back front, the Big V is back safely and appears to be in fine form. Thanks for all the many kind words, crossed paws and god vibes.

I don't have a lot of photos this week, but there are a few good ones. This first one is me censoring what she gets to see on Facebook:

And this is when I was trying to hypnotise #1 so she would give me something to eat other than my renal food. It didn't work. Sigh...

I haven't been eating my renal food with as much enthusiasm lately. but I have become more snuggly and also have been playing more. # managed to catch some pics of me playing:

 #1 says it's pretty hard to play and take photos at the same time!

Have a great SEIturday!
