Wednesday Whinnies

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! #1 told me yesterday that she was leaving for a while tomorrow. It made me sad, but I know I will still get lots of cuddles, and Ms. N has promised to take lots of photos! So, even though I was in the middle of my nap...

--- I agreed to get up when she told me this was our last chance for a ride together until August. It was a beautiful morning and it was really nice to go explore!

There were French Air Force jets in formation flying in the sky, but it didn't worry me!  I am always happy to make my #1 proud!

And here I am afterwards, waiting for my treat bucket:

Here is one more photo of me, taken a couple of days ago. #1 says I look ready to take part in a beauty competition (known as "halter classes" in the horse world...):

Vidock: Dum DeDum DeDum.... Oh! Neighs Everyone! How are you doing?

I guess there is a kind of sameness to my posts at the moment...

But I do have something fun to report today! I have a brand-new half-brother! His name is Duc de Prainville and he was born last Friday night. His daddy is Papa Orgueil, just like me!

Here he is on his very first outing yesterday, with his Mama, Impériale:

And here he is, trying the gallop for the very first time!

Live long and prosper, little brother!

PS: A quick update from Poupounette Central - Ms. R arrived safely last night and we all like her!


  1. Violette you look so lovely and we can see why #1 likes to ride you :)
    Vidock, you are as handsome as ever and your half brother is very cute and lively !!

  4. Oh my - both of you horsies are absolutely gorgeous. Awww that little colt is so precious. It will be fun to watch him grow up too.

  5. Vidock what wonderful foliage where you are - it looks like a lovely secret garden. Violette we know you will miss #1 but you'll be well looked after.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  6. Oh Violette you do look sad. But it looks like you made up for it with a nice hike. What a cute little baby.

  7. everyone is lookin' good.... love the new baby!

  8. Et bien moi ... j'aime beaucoup Vidock. Je le trouve magnifique. Toute cette verdure lui va bien !
    Et je ne me lasse pas de le voir dans ce cadre là.
    Longue vie au petit frère tout mignon.

  9. Violette that is so great the the jets didn't bother you. Most horses I have known would not walk nicely under those. Keep up the good work. Vidock your little half brother is such a cutie. It is hard to imagine he will grow up to be just like you someday.

    So glad to hear you like Ms. R too.

  10. I'm glad you got one more ride in with #1 before her big trip, Violette! And Vidock, your little half-brother is adorable!

  11. Pretty Violette! And Handsome Vidock! My goodness, so wonderful to see. And little half-brother looks like he is following in Vidock's footsteps looks wise :D

  12. Violette, I am so glad you got one more ride in before #1 is off on her trip! You did do well didn't you with the jets! You are one very cool lady!
    And Vidock, little Impériale is beautiful! You must have been wonderful at a few days old, too!
    Love and best wishes for the days ahead!

  13. I'm sorry #1 is leaving for a little while, Violette! Try not to be too sad. You be so happy to see each other again!

    And Vidock, your new half-brother is sooooooooo cute!!

  14. You are looking beautiful Violette. Your half brother is cute Vidock. We love to see the babies with their long gangly legs that go off in all directions when they try to gallop.

  15. Violette, you do look quite beautiful there. And Vidock, that little guy is quite handsome, but we bet you will always be the more handsome.
