Vidock and Violette Vendredi

Vidock: Studly Neighs, Everyone! As you know, #1 comes to visit me and Miss Violette about every couple of days. When she came on Wednesday, I was still in my box and so she got to witness the "turning out of the stallion"!

As you can see, I was rather impatient to go out:

Ms. C had to stop me a minute, and I winked at #1!

And then stepped on smartly...

...tasting the odd blade of grass on my way!

Did you notice my handsome new red lead rope? A present from #1, of course.

My hay was waiting for me in my field. Really, I have no complaints at all about the service!

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Dear Friends! The last few times #1 had come to see me, about the best sighting she got of me was this:

Yep. That's me in the middle behind the trees, where there is the least mud. But when she came on Wednesday, we had had a hard frost overnight and some of the mud had hardened. So, this is what happened:

And guess what? I got a whole, entire carrot and lots of cuddles from #1!

She said she would come again today, but they have been talking snow. I hope she can make it. Hooves crossed!


  1. I bet the big guy loves stretching his legs!


  2. Although it may khurtail #1's visit, I hope woo get the SNOW!


  3. Let's hope snow doesn't prevent life from going on as normal - Äiti is chuckling away but horrified at how most of the west of England has simply stopped.

  4. You take a gorgeous picture friend. You are the purrfect example of a fine specimen of a stallion.

  5. Oh my Vidock, we can tell just how very strong and studly you are from the photo! We hope you Vs have a great weekend! XOXO

  6. Violette, you are such a beautiful , wild girl aren't you?! No one can "cage" you in! :) We are glad you come out to see #1 for those tasty carrots and a snuggle once in a while!
    Vidock, you are magnificent!

  9. Vidock, you DO look more studly than EVER!!! I am not surprised you stopped to wink at #1. She came over especially to see you. And Violette...thank goodness for less mud so that your pretty self stayed relativly un-marred. Of course both of you are glorious regardless and besides, look at it as a beauty mask for your skin. xoxoxox

  10. I am crossing my paws that #1 got to visit you two today! Vidock, sometimes I forget just how MASSIVE you are - seriously, you Percherons are ginormous horses!

  11. glad you guys are liking the new place so much!!! but the mud does NOT look fun....

  12. Oh Vidock, you are looking very manly indeed ! Looks like you are well situated there too ;)
    Violette, no need to wait for the ground to harden to come and see #1. You got a carrot, so it is worth it to come closer.
    That way we see how lovely you are too :)
    Snow is cold ! Not very fun to drive in either :/ Hope #1 got to see you today and not the snow!

  13. WOW Vidock. You are such a big horse. We have never seen horses close-up but we're sure you are quite magnificent. All that space to run in! You're two furry lucky houses.


  14. We love seeing you two!! And Violette, we loved how you ran to greet #1!!

  15. Nice to came all the way across the field to see #1, carrots and cuddles always needed.
