Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! It has been such a busy week that I barely know where to start! Let me see... On Saturday, the farrier came and I got my very first pair of shoes. Yes, you read right, pair. I am, for now, only wearing shoes on my front feet. I was good as gold for the farrier!
I did get my hind hooves trimmed, though!
And then, with my new shoes in place, I went on my first long ride outdoors! Ms. C rode me and #1 was behind on another horse. Ms. C was simply amazed at how cool and collected I was in all these new environments (we horses tend to be jittery...). She said it was as though I had been doing this for years! Here I am out in the sunshine!
I was so good that Ms. C told #1 that next time, she would be riding me!!! I am so excited, and so is she!
After we got back, #1 congratulated me at length on what a fabulous girl I had been! And of course I got treats!
Vidock: So, as Miss Violette has been living the high life, I, The Big V, have been living the lazy life in my field, although I do try and get in my exercise every day. When #1 calls me for my treats, I gallop over!!! She says I am like a vision, coming through "the tunnel"!
And it just gets better as I get closer!
Until I get to kissable distance!
