Vidock and Violette Vendredi

Vidock: Studly neighs, everyone! Remember last week, when I didn't really have anything much to tell you? Well! What a difference a week makes!

First of all, I was brought in from my field one afternoon and told I had to be ready for when the farrier comes to trim my hooves next week. So, I had a reminder course on how to give my feet properly and elegantly:

Then, they put a saddle on me and took me out to the schooling ring. You know the one that Tommy swam in a few days ago????

I heard them mumbling about my not "having done anything" for six months, so I thought I would show them:

"Big V - Rodeo Star"

And then, Ms. C got on my back!

Do I look handsome or what? The weather people have promised us a whole week of no rain, starting today, so I am told that this is "TBC". Apparently, that stands for "To Be Continued"!

Violette: Pretty neighs, everyone! Boy was there a lot of splashing going on when "Big V" was in the schooling ring...

Anyway, I am told that "my turn will come" and we shall see how that goes. In the meantime, #1 and I had some fun playing with reflections (what else do you do with all that water, I ask you?).

This is me!

and again...

Like so:

And a close-up (the right way up) for good measure:

Have a great weekend!

    Sorry for my english. I am better at reading than at writing.
    Bonne soirée.

  8. Vidock, the schooling ring looks like lots of fun! And the reflection photos are fun too, Violette!

  9. we think the reflections are awesome. Not sure sure about the large splashing - we bet everyone got wet. :)

  10. We do hope you get a dry week so you have less mud. Vidock looks like he is having fun splashing through the ring.

  11. So THAT was the earthquake we had here...Vidock, you registered 3.5 on the Richter scale in Reno!

    Sei-Chan, Mommy apologizes for not letting Me wish you a Happy Valentine's's been total chaos here at home...if you want to come over and play I'll save a sunny spot for you! xx Maui
