Violette and Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs everyone! It feels like ages since I last neighed with you! You see, I share a large field with lots of other horses, all Percherons, and because it has been so muddy, #1 hasn't been able to get close to me. So, she spoke with Ms. C and, earlier this week, I was brought out of the field one day and put in the box so #1 and I could have some quality time together. I have to tell you that I have come to the conclusion that I don't really like to be cooped up in a box much, but this was nice because #1 spent time brushing me and that always feels good (it wasn't the best thing for her sciatica, though...). Anyway, here I am:

As you can see, I have my fluffy winter coat on, and I am darker in colouring in the winter than in the summer.

I have to confess that I wasnt always well-behaved. I love being brushed and getting cuddles from #1. But! There were ponies and donkeys in the box next door and I don't like it when anyone else gets too close to my #1. She is MINE!!!

And here I am back out in the field:

Vidock: Studly Neighs! I have a new headcollar (halter). Don't you think it's quite elegant?

#1 had bought it for me in Canada last summer.

I had a fun visit with my floppy-eared bro, Tommy, the other day!

He gave me all the Poupounette Central news. I always come up to the barrier when #1 comes to visit, so we can snuggle!

And unlike my weird sister, Violette, I like going back into my warm and dry box in the evening!


  1. So what does 'not being well behaved' mean ....? Does it mean the mighty horsey hoof ? Are girl horses as sneaky as girlcats?
    And that is one very handsome halter.....

  2. Does Violette Have a shelter at night too? We love the pics. x

  3. Nice to see you neighing at us! And gotta love a floofy horse!

  4. We came by to catch up and are pleased we got to see all of you as we scrolled down the posts. You're all looking good. Hope #1's sciatica starts doing better. Wait, we mean we hope #1 starts doing better, not her sciatica. We want that to go away!

  5. Looking great you two! I can see where the idea of a warm box is inviting! I wouldn't want to be out in the chilly air, even if I did have my winter coat on, lol

  6. We think your new halter is very elegant. And all sisters are weird, Vidock. That's not a bad thing!

  7. Hiya Violette and Vidock!
    You both look very beautiful.

  8. Glad#1 kept you company while you were in the box. Maybe it's the snuggle box
    Benny & Lily

  9. It looks like you two had a really nice visit with #1 and Tom - I always enjoy seeing you both!

  10. Violette, did you see Vidock has your color on? His head collar? You are both beautiful and we LOVE seeing you get brushies and snuggles with #1 and Tommy.

  11. Wow, Vidock, beautiful harness!! Before we even read that it was new our eyes zero'd in on it and we were thinking how handsome you look!! And Violette, what a beauty you are!! But are you serious about preferring to be out in the mud and not in where it is warm, dry and cozy?? Ooo, not us...all 5 of us just love to sleep near the fireplace or on the couch or if we can, the bed!!! But the mudd?? Nooooo!! How do you do it? Do you have special shoes for that? Doesn't the rain make you cold? You are so big and strong and brave!!! We humble little cats and dogs bow before you both oh great wise and wonderful equines!! We would send headbutts, but we have to admit that we're just a bit afraid of you so we will blow you purrs from afar!! And tailwags, too!! Tiny, Ellwood, Ginger, Elioth and Chouchou

  12. Me and Mom think your HeadCollar look Fantastic !
    Violette, may be weird for you, but my mom said lady need to do that : )
    Have a purrfect day every one.

    PS : Today I have interview at MouseBreath, See me there if you can. One comment, You have a chance to win 5 lucky kitties ! Mom will make graphic for your next special event ! Here the link

  13. It's wonderful to see both V's doing so well in their new home! How wonderful as well to get a visit from your #1. :)

    the critters in the cottage xo

  14. Violette, we're glad you got to spend some quality time with #1.

    And Vidock, there's no figuring them girls out. Sheesh!

    Wally & Ernie

  15. We prefer warm and cozy, not outside and muddy. But Violette, if that is what you want, you should get it.

  16. mowzers, mommy had an Appaloosa Quarter Horse when she was growing up and he'd get playful & nippy she sez. Do you get ornery too?

    That's one muddy paddock you gots there...!

  17. Oh Violette, me knows exactly how yous feels! Me hates it when strange animals gets near my Mommy! And Vidock, that halter is the cat's meow!

  18. Fenris gets darker in the winter too. His coat is more reddish brown in winter and turns blond in the summer.

    Frankly the weather we have been having we just want to be inside.

  19. Vidock, we think you are very ManHorsely and we love your handsome furs! Girlhorses can be so silly sometimes, just like girl cats.

    We think we would prefer a warm stall over a muddy hill are the smart one!
