Wednesday Whinnies!

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! My big day is fast approaching (it's tomorrow!) and I have been getting ready for the big Percheron Event called "Fête du Cheval Percheron."

I got a complete shampoo and shower yesterday!

In case you were wondering, it was mainly #1 who did the scrubbing, but she couldn't scrub and take photos at the same time!

Afterwards, #1 tried out my new tail decoration which just arrived in the mail yesterday:

Pretty cool, don't you think?

And I even got to try on my ball gown!

I think I'm ready! Please wish me (and #1) luck!

Vidock: Studly Neighs Everyone! I am glad that my sister Violette is getting her turn at the big Percheron event. You may remember that last year, it was me! And maybe again next year? In the meantime, I have  been showing off my moves...


  1. Violette, you look stunning in your ball gown and tail decoration. We wish you the best of luck tomorrow :)
    Vidock, you look as handsome as ever and we love that close up :)

    Treasure,Tiger,JJ and Julie

  2. That purple suits you. Have a ball Violette.

  3. You will be the most beautiful ! Your tail decoration is really pretty (...and it could be a cool cat toy when it's wagging !! signed Zorro)

  4. Violette! YOU look absolutely stunning! That is YOUR color and the spa day did you well! You should be at the top of the list in beauty and form. (mommy said she and I don't know what terms to use but we sure think you should be at the top of that list!)

    Vidock, you are just the manliest stallion there EVER was!!! Your moves are like illustrations in a book on "how to" make the top rank!

  5. You are looking good Violette and we sure wish you lots and lots of luck. We just know you will be a winner. Take care.

  6. Violette you chose a wonderful colour for your ball gown and it make your coat look wonderful. We hope you have a successful day. Enjoy your romp in the field Vidock.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  7. Violette, I am sure you will be the belle of the ball!

  8. we know you will be great!!! does #1 have to get on a ladder to get those high up spots on your back?? :)

  9. I love that Violette's tail is long. Have fun tomorrow!


  10. What a beautiful girl! You look lovely, Violette. We wish we could be there to see you in your event. We know you will do splendidly and your #1 will be so proud of you. And we will too! We hope there will be lots of photos for us to see.
    Have a good nights rest, dear. Tomorrow is your big day.
    Hi Vidock. Is there any way you could both go next year? Maybe #1 could ride one of you and a friend the other?

  11. Good luck on your big day, Violette! I'm sure you will be fantastic! I love your tail decoration. The color matches perfectly!

  12. You look beautiful in your ball gown and tail decoration Violette. Good luck tomorrow.

  13. Oh Violette, you look so beautiful!!! We know you will wow them all tomorrow. There was an article in our paper today about horses working on farms, and one of them was a Percheron. He looked a lot like Vidock.

    Enjoy your big day with #1.

  14. Violette, you are so beautiful in your ball gown! And all the of the other violet colored adornments you will wear will be wonderful! You are going to be the Belle of the Ball!
    I just had to Google Fête du Cheval Percheron to see what it was all about. Well, my understanding of the French language from my High School days was not enough to really understand much so I used Google images to see many beautiful photos! I can't wait to see yours here! Have a wonderful time! You, too, #1!
    And Vidock! I think I will go back and see if there are photos here showing you last year. Maybe #1 could be persuaded to post a few with Violetts’s... ya think?
    It would be so great if you both could be in it next year! Maybe?
    Love to both of you,

  15. Oh all that attention was must wonderful

  16. Good luck Violette. You look very fetching in your ball gown.

  17. Wishing you all the best, Violette! You are so beautiful. And Vidock, your moves are stunning :D

  18. Oh, you look sooooo beautiful, Violette!! Purple, er, violet is really your color :)I wish I could have seen Vidock last year too!
