Violette and Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! I can't believe it's Friday already! I hear that they are looking after Fernant for the day at Poupounette Central, and he will come to visit me this afternoon. I am excited because Fernant was a really good buddy of mine when I was in that field last winter. There's nothing like old friends, don't you think?

How about a nice portrait of me?

Here is sending you one big smooch!

Vidock: Neigh everyone! I am trying some new mane decorations. What do you think?

Oh, and I can do smooch too!

In answer to the question that is asked fairly regularly about my coat colour. Yes, I am growing lighter. There is a lovely old saying that goes something like: "Percherons are born wearing a coat of night, they grow to maturity wearing a coat of stars, and they grow old wearing a coat of clouds." So, I will gradually dapple and one day, years from now, I will be white!

A Happy Friday to all our friends far and near!


  1. Hello lovely Violette!! You are so pretty :)
    Hello handsome Vidock. Those mane decorations ate cool ;)
    We like the "old saying" about your coat and look forward to the transformation.Well,some of it anyway.heehee
    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Tiger,Treasure,JJ and Julie

  2. We love how your coat changes!


  3. Thanks for so sweetly rooting for us over the hurricane. Now that our power is back and we can watch more tv coverage of areas where the storm surge destroyed houses, it is quite shocking what a powerful, destructive storm it was. We feel fortunate.

  4. Woo SHOW that Fernant!!!


  5. It looks as though you have been experimenting with mane decorations Violette - very pretty too.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  6. Both of you look so pretty (Violette) and handsome. I love the mane decorations Vidock, and you did a wonderful job with that casual *I just threw something on* look. It's just right for casual times with furriends such as Fernant when he comes over. He'll know you two got festive in honor of his visit. xxoo

  7. Violette, you look lovely this morning! Vidock, um, those are nice decorations for your mane. Very manly. We didn't know that your furs were going to change color. That is a very interesting fact. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  8. I'm beginning to wear a coat of stars myself! haha! smoochies!

  9. I'm astonished to see how much Viddock's coat has changed since July! Then again, my clouds are blotting out the stars on (and in!) my head...

  10. We luv these days! Our Mommy longs to run her hand over those beautiful dapples, Vidock. Be sure to thank #1 for those lovely nose shots. We luv those pink spots on those noses! XOXO

  11. We love those pics of you both ~ and the charming story about a Pecheron's coat colour.. xx

  12. Vidock, you are a typical guy - making a glorious mess!

  13. Here are some BIG smooches back atcha! Now we want to know why Violette is white already...we thought she was quite young, too.

    1. That's a matter of genes. She was also born black but she began to turn pale grey almost immediately (she was already dark silver when I met her aged four months!). Good breeders will give serious thought as to what stallion they use with what mare so as to ensure the offspring will turn white as slowly as possible. Violette's breeders aren't much into thinking...
      Of course, she is utterly lovable regardless .


  14. You're both lovely kissable babies! Wow, I had no idea your coat could change color!

  15. Violette you are lovely as ever and we hope you have a fun visit with Fernant. He sure is a good friend to you. Vidock, we love your decorations and thank both of you for the smooches. Wish I could be there in person to get it.

    Millie & Cindy

  16. *smooch* *smooch* You horsies are just so smoochable!!

  17. Smooches right back at you two - hope you all have a great weekend.

    Mom loves that saying.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  18. I don't usually kiss horses. I do kiss the lady every once in awhile...and she is a horse's a@$.

    Violette, that's a nice "comb-over" you've got there.

  19. You both are so smoochable. Mum says she loves seeing how Vidock's coat is changing as he gets older.

  20. Your hair decorations are so nice. The light colored hair gives you more character, BOL
    Benny & Lily
