: As the new kid around here, #1 thought it would be fitting for me to be the one wishing you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR on behalf of the whole Poupounette Gang.

#1 and Mr. Floppy Ears came to see me yesterday. It was a little embarrassing as Viking and I were having our afternoon nap, pleasantly sprawled on the straw.

But she said not to worry and to just relax, and that this was a good opportunity to get some close-ups of my beautiful (!) head. Do you think this is my best side?

Or should I go for the profile shot?

Anyway, back to today! You know by now that #1 has a thing about Japan. Over there, they use the western calendar in combination with the old Chinese zodiac, which means that the YEAR OF THE RABBIT starts today. So, we have a special New Year's card for all of you!

We're all looking forward to lots of fun blogging adventures in the coming year!

How wonderful that the baby of the familly ihas ushered in the new year. You look so precious nestled in the soft, warm straw with your brother at your side. We hope that you will come to enjoy your photo being taken because we will love having a chance to watch you grow up. You know, dear, you have not only your horse family and your new family to love you but you have a whole group of people whom you have never met that will love you too.
Lots of love on this New Years Day. Hugs and kisses.
