Violette Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Every Friend! Have you missed me? It seems like a long time since I posted... I have a bunch of photos to share!

The funny thing is that, as the colder weather approaches, I do the opposite of humans. I get darker! My coat which was almost brilliant white in the summer is now dappling again!

By the way, can you make out another horse at the back of that picture? That's Vidock!

Yesterday, #1 managed to come into the pasture, put my headcollar on and bring me out for the first time since her accident! I was so proud of her! My treats were of course very yummy and just look at this study in violet:

Thanks, #1!!!

Come to think of it, I haven't yet shown you pics of me and Mr. New Farrier, have I?

It was the first time I has shoes fitted on all four feet and the smoke scared me just a tiny little bit:

Can you see Vidock watching me from inside his box?

The farrier said I was a dream to fit for shoes. Blush...

Now I just need #1's knee to be all well again so we can ride off into the sunset together!

See how much darker I look?!


  1. Yes we can see how much darker you are. The dappling adds to your beauty. Will you be changing your colour as well like Vidock later in your life?

  2. You do look so much darker in the final picture Violette - you look much lighter in the sunshine ones.

  3. It looks like your mud is coming back! You are such a good girl, Violette.

  4. Boy Violette, you ARE getting darker for the Winter. But what a pleasure to see you, dappled or not. Wat a beautiful girl and HI to YOU too Vidock. xoxoxoxo

  5. Siamese kitties do a similar thing as far as changing colors with the weather - they can get darker in cold weather. But unlike you two, they get darker in general as they mature, not lighter because their internal temperature is cooler as adults than as kittens.

  6. We can see very well how much darker you get with winter. Violet suits you as well. Purrs

  7. Le violet te va très bien .. Violette.
    Et moi je te préfères avec ta couleur qui fonce. Tu deviens joliment pommelée..

  8. Hello Violette!
    You look very beautiful with your winter dapple of grey! I am so glad you are now ready and waiting for #1 to be back up in the saddle again! Happy wishes for your autumn.

  9. Our mom loves all your purple accessories and used to dress her horse (when she had one) in purple too. You were such a good girl for the farrier.

  10. You are beautiful pure white or dappled Violet!

    We are glad you were such a brave girl when you were fitted for your "shoes". Smoke can make some horses very jumpy indeed!!

  11. Violette, you do look so lovely!
    We are quite taken with all the changes your coat(and Vidocks) goes through! Fascinating!

  12. Yes, that last picture really shows you looking darker. Hope you like your new shoes.

  13. Hi Violette !
    Nice to see some pictures on you <3
    You sure was a nice girl when you got your shoes fit by the farrier !

  14. You're a beautiful lady no matter what seasonal colour you wear.
    You do look quite elegant in violet.
    It's def your colour!
