FANTASTIC FRIDAY or VICTORIOUS VIDOCK VENDREDI!


Vidock:
Neeeeeeigh, Everyone! Thank you so much for all your words of support yesterday. They worked! I have been approved as a breeding stallion by the French Percheron Stud Book Commission! In France, for the offspring of any Percheron stallion to be recognised and registered in the official stud book, the stallion has to be approved by a special commission. Yesterday, there were 8 stallions presented and only 3 of us were approved.

Here are a few pictures of my day:

Getting leg protections put on before getting into the van (you can see I already have my muscle "shirt" on!)


In the van and ready to go!


Waiting to be presented. Friends, it was COLD!!!!


In front of the judges:


I placed second out of the eight participants!


And here is the official photo of me and #1!


Last but not last, here is a little video of me doing a victory dance on my return home!

  9. Oh Vidock! This is so wonderful! Congratulations! You are such an exquisite boy and we are overjoyed to hear that you are recognized as such! Congratulations to your wonderful mum too! Bet it was one of her happiest moments. We kitties are doing the happy dance and our mum's joined in.
    Can your mum tell us a bit about your mark? Will this new honour change it? Is this designation permanent or do you need to be reviewed at intervals?
    Our love to you, magnificent one!

  16. Congratulations! This is very impressive news indeed and terrific pics-- loved the video.

    Thank you for your kind comments about Alice -- she was a special girl and as BB remarked, she made everything special. She suffered from Addison's disease for many years and her little body just wore out from the treatment. It has been incredibly sad for us and we miss her so much.
