Studly Sunday! Vidock's Fourth Birthday

Vidock: Neighs Everyone! Your favourite stud here! Today I am celebrating my fourth birthday. This means that I am almost all grown-up. #1 tells me that I still have a bit of filling out to do, but that I am looking mighty fine!

So, let's take a look back, shall we? Here I am on the day of my birth, with my Mummy, Jessy:

At one year old:

At (almost) Two years old:

At three years old:

And now, at four years old!

And here are some more important milestones for me:

My first public appearance:

The day I was approved as a breeding stallion:

The first time I had a saddle  on my back!

The first time I was ridden in public, by Mr. E:

After a bit of a break, I will soon be finishing up my basic training and I hope to be carrying #1 on my back soon!

And on the subject of #1, here are a few of my favourite pictures of the two of us together:

Can you feel the love? I know how lucky I am. I have been loved to bits ever since I was born. I don't know if that is the reason, but everyone who knows me says I am the gentlest, sweetest stallion they know. Mind you, I love to play too, so I need a pretty firm hand as well! I am starting my fifth year full of joy at living and high hopes for a very fun time over the next twelve months.

Vidock, you are our sweetheart and our rock. We all love you! From your #1, Tommy, The Chans and your sis, Violette
