Wednesday Whinnies

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Dear Friends! Firstly, thank you so much for all the kind words for my floppy-eared brother, Tommy. As you can see from the photos below, he has been getting excellent care!

Plus the weather was cold and rainy yesterday, which curtailed outdoor fun anyway, and he went out with #1 and got to sit in the car for over two hours, just perfect for really resting that leg!

Now, on to me! I have such fun stuff to tell you about! I got ridden for the first time ever! Here I am warming up with just the saddle on my back:

And by the way, that's a brand-new hand-made Amish bridle I'm wearing!!!

Then, they stopped me, and started pulling at the stirrups and tugging at the saddle:

And then, this nice lady, Ms. L, got on my back. But just look at her!

I mean, REALLY!!!

But she finally decided to do it right!

I was such a good girl although I was wobbly at the beginning because I wasn't used to having weight on my back. You know what this means, right? It means that the day when #1 gets on my back is fast approaching! Neeeeeeeeiiiiiigh!

And once I was back in my field, I told my best friends, Kirane and Intime, all about it!

Vidock: Studly Neighs, Everyone! I hope you're not thinking that I'm nothing but a pretty toy boy! I too shall be carrying #1 on my back very soon! But, being a gentlehorse, I let Violette go first.

That's what gentlehorses do, right?

And #1 keeps telling me that, right now, the pleasure she is getting from just looking at me is boundless!


  1. Wow, looks of exciting things going on at yours. We hope Tommy's paw feels better soon.

  2. Violette how exciting to think that #1 will be taking hold of your reins soon. How gentlemanly of you to let Violette go first. We're sorry to hear you are being rained on it is sunny here and is supposed to be all this week - hopefully it will find you soon.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  8. OH NOES! I did not know about Tommy's footie. I will go back a day and see what I accidentally missed.

    I loved seeing you Violette when you had your first time to be ridden. You were such a good girl and I am proud of you. Tell Vidock he was a very gentlman horse to let you go first. Now to Tommy.

  9. First off, we are sending more wishes for Tommy's foot to be better - meanwhile he can enjoy all that TLC.

    Violette and Vidock - you both grow more and more gorgeous every time we see you - you two hit the jackpot when you came under #1's care.

  14. Violette est une brave "petite" jument courageuse. Pas évident au début d'avoir un humain sur le dos.
    J'espère que Tommy va mieux.
    Bonne soirée.

  15. It looks like you did a great job, Violette! I am glad to hear Tommy got some needed rest.

  16. Violette, we are thrilled by what a gentle lady horse you are becoming! What a thrill it will be for #1 when she one day gets to ride on your back! And Vidock you are certainly worthy of admiring , you handosme boy you!
