It s very cold and very sunny, and today is Vidock's big day! He will pass before the Percheron approval commission this afternoon , hoping to be approved as a breeding stallion. Needless to say, we think he is the best and we will love him just a much if the judges say no, as they did last time around.

So, yesterday evening, he got showered and fancified:

And then he got to spend the night in his own private stall to prevent more horsing around, and associated bite marks, with Big Tom:

Don't worry! His rump hasn't suddenly bceome huge! There is straw under the blanket to keep him extra warm.

In other news, Tommy has decided, with #1's approval, to take part in this year's Idita-Walk, and is very excited at the prospect!

Any woofies who haven't signed up yet and would like to can do so here.

We would also like to thank our friends over at Curls and Swirls for this lovely LIEF Award.

We think it has done the rounds quite a bit already so would like to share it with any of our friends who have not yet received it.

And finally, in order to make you feel warm and fuzzy on this cold day, here is a picture of our sweet Sei-Chan asleep!


  1. Paws khrossed fur both V's today ;-)

    PeeEssWoo: Happy Walking Tommy! I did our furst minutes when Mom got home on Wednesday!

  2. It's extra cold and extra sunny over here too. We think it's a purrfect day to show off your qualities, Vidock. Paws crossed!

  3. We are sure Vidock will do well cos for a horse we think he is very handsome!
    Keep warm everyone.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. Dear little Sei-Chan, you look so very peaceful. Sweet dreams, sweet girl :)

    Good luck Vidock! We will keep you in our thoughts today :)

  5. OH, my, wishing very good luck to Vidock! WE think it would be fabulous for there to be little Vidocks all over France!

  6. Paws crossed that Vidock got his approval! When I saw Anchorage-to-Nome, I thought Tommy was going to have to go to Alaska! I was a little relieved when I went to the website and saw that he could do it right at home. That would have been an awfully long trip!

  7. Very sweet, Sei-Chan - you are just adorable.

    Lots of great big wishes being sent for Vidock and #1. He is already a winner in our book.

  11. Now I have a question?? If Vidock did not get approved last time, how can he get approved this time? What makes it different?? Or is it different judges??


  12. Congrats on your new award. :)
