Violette: Pretty neighs everyone! I hope you are all well and enjoying life. I am! I was thrilled to get my very first mani-pedi yesterday! #1 was a little bit miffed because the farrier did it when she wasn't there, so she couldn't take photos. But here are a couple of my feet afterwards!
By the way, I got an entire apple cut into slices after it was all over! #1 said it was quite funny to watch me walk as I was a bit wobbly. The farrier trimmed my front left hoof in particular to give me a straighter gait. The way my hoof grows had made me a little pigeon-toed...
Now aside from the fact that I was extremely well-behaved for a first-timer, the farrier also commented that I was a very lucky girl because I have excellent hoof quality!
Oh and I have one more piece of news! Guess who came to visit me this week? Young Fernant! Here I am playing hide and seek with him:
Vidock: Neighs everyone and greetings from your favourite stud! It seems that one thing I share with pretty Violette is that I too have excellent hoof quality. Whereas my two brothers in the field both have various cracks in their hooves, I am a regular old twinkletoes!
Let me show you what I mean. Here we have a brotherly hoof, looking a little cracked due to the very wet followed by very dry weather:
And here we have a Super-Vidock hoof:
Anyway, we are all scheduled to see the farrier again very soon for our regular trims. I am just lucky that nature has blessed me with the good stuff, just like people who have really strong nails.
Oh and just in case you were missing my handsome face...
Have a great Friday everyone!
