Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! Violette here! Today, I thought I would introduce you to a couple of my friends, seeing as it is also "Friends on Friday". Let me start with my friend Quick. He was with me and Vidock at Ms. S's place. In fact, he shared a field with Vidock for a while (he is a gelding so he can be put with either stallions or mares). Now he is with me and a whole bunch of other geldings and mares.
It's really nice to have old friends, even when you have lots of new ones too! In the next picture, I am with Kirane. She is an old-timer here and really knows the ropes. When I first arrived, she wasn't very welcoming, but it seems I have grown on her, and we are now good friends:
And last, but not least, my latest portrait by #1:
Did you notice the bits of blue sky? We have had better weather, with a bit of sunshine, but it stil manages to rain by the bucketload at least once a day. Sigh...
Vidock: Studly Neighs, Everyone! I don't have anything very exciting to tell you about today. As you know, I am alone in my field, although I have other horses all around, so there is plenty of scope for
flirting, I mean conversation.
Take a look at my coat in this next photo:
Aside from the dried mud, do you notice that my coat is just beginning to dapple? Little white spots are appearing in the dark grey coat. Over the next few years, my coat will keep on changing!
Oh, and look what #1 bought:
It's an old work horse collar from the eastern part of France. Apparently, the bits that stick out used to be a lot sharper and were there to protect the horses from wolves! The collar is far to small for either me or Violette but #1 will clean it up and it will be a nice decorative item.
Have yourselves a great Friday, Friends!
