Wednesday Whinnies

Vidock: Studly Neighs, Everyone! After trying it out last week, Violette and I decided we rather liked this mid-week slot, so we're keeping it for now!

I thought we might start with this rather fun photo in which you can actually see both of us! It also gives you an idea of where our fields are located in relation to each other, and shows you that we can have a good old neigh over the fence!

The weather is improving but we're still getting some serious April showers which means that the mud situation remains... a situation! #1 has been ordering heavy-duty shampoos over the Internet but she's beginning to wonder what it will take to remove the caked mud...

I keep telling her not to worry and that it will all be just fine!

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Dear Friends! Guess what? I too am getting a bucket of yummy stuff these days! And that's in addition to my carrots!

My mane has been growing in really nicely and I am getting a biotin supplement for a month to make sure it continues to stay healthy!

The shampoo that #1 has ordered for me is called "Diamond White"! Hooves crossed it will work!

I have one other fun thing to tell you about today. Guess what is growing around my field? Violets!!!

Isn't that just the best? Violets for Violette!

Oh, and by the way, several of you asked about Tommy's pawdicure and who did the clean-up job afterwards. Well, Tommy "got the hose" at the end of his visit here! The water is pretty cold so he hops about from one paw to the other when it's happening... But it works!


  1. Hello Vidock and Violette! So good to see you having a neigh over the fence ;)
    As for cleaning all the mud,we think sunshine and a good brush will be nice .Then the shampoo might work and have you both looking top notch!
    It's good that Tommy is clean,but we bet he was happy to get inside to dry out!

  2. Hi Vidock and Violette !
    Nice to see that you two can have a good old neigh over the fence :)
    Violets for Violette is pawsome !

  3. Hello Vidock and Violette! Looks like #1 might need a high-pressure washer for all that mud. MOL! Happy Whinnie Wednesday, furriends!

  4. What pretty violets for you to have in your field Violette. They must make a welcome change from all your glorious mud! We hope the fields dry out for you and Vidock soon.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. We would love to have a neighmeowwoof over the fence with you both! Oh how fun that would be! We will purr that it will dry out for you...and for us too. April showers won't last forever and pretty soon all the mud will go away.

    xoxo Cory and family

  6. Those pretty violets are a sign that the mud will soon be on its' way! #1, your cheeks are rosy! We can't believe it is still that cold out in your neck of the woods!
    V+V, you will be squeaky clean soon enough with all those lovely shampoos :)

    the critters in the cottage xo

  7. This made mom and I smile! We love that you two can neigh over the fence! I LOVE the violets too, Violette! Perfect for you and happen to be mom's favorite flower in the world. Really. Sh has sweet memories of them drom childhood.

    I am anxious to know how the shampoo works.

    Violette, I no longer remember why you are in another place. Is it there is not enough room at #1's? Are you still hers?

  8. I'm sure once the mud dries up a bit that you two will clean up real nice.


  9. You both have beautiful fields to romp in. Nice enough distance to yell hello over the fence to one a other. Hope your new shampoo works

  10. I love being able to see both of you in the same shot! And how sweet that you have violets growing in your field, Violette!

  11. We love the idea of Wednesday Whinnies - we just wish we could hear those whinnies:)

    We know all about that mud. We have had a lot of rain here last night and today so our yard is pretty wet. Lots of magnet mud for Mr. L.

    Beautiful violets for Beautiful Violette.

    It is so nice that you two are so close. Maybe one day you can run in the field together.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  12. Hi Vidock and Violette!
    You are looking so good in your fields... I loved seeing the two of you together in one shot so we know how close you to each other! Awesome!
    And the shampoos - my you are pampered!
    Enjoy your wonderfully pretty violets! That is very special!
    Happy Wednesday!
    Love to all,
    Lily, WA, USA

  13. A field made just for you, lovely Violette! Ah, life sounds pretty sweet. Hope #1 can get a good photo showing you and your violets. What a wonderful photo that would be.
    We are pleased to know the two of you can still have some friendly neighs. You must Always keep the family ties strong.
    When the mud is finally dried, your #1 will shampoo you and you'll both be silky and shiny again. Muddy or no, you both look beautiful.

  14. It's so nice to see that you two, while not together, can see each other and neigh hello to one another! We hope the rain stops and the mud goes away. And Violette, we think your mane looks lovely!

  15. waving paws to Violette....HI!!! You look so lovely Violette and your violets are blooming JUST for you! And Vidock, I had no idea you and Violette were within hearing and seeing of each other...(whispers behind could even flirt a bit there Vidock, wink, wink..just sayin'...)

  16. Yous guys look marvelous! And wes has the same violets here! Wooozers! Who knew that they was that far around the world from eah other! And my hairy slobbery sisters gets the hose - just like Tommy!

  17. There's no end to all that mud, is there? I don't envy #1 having to clean it all out of your hair and coat. But think how lovely you will look! Violets & pansies are our mom's favorite flowers, so what a great way to end a post.

  18. Glad you two are close enough to neigh over the fence and share some news.

    Icky and soggy here, but we aren't outside getting muddy paws!

  19. Nice to see both of you, and you get to see each other - cool. Hope the new shampoo works, Violette, and all that mud disappears fast!!
