Violette: Pretty Neighs, Every Friend! Do you remember me? I have been keeping a low profile recently as The Big V has been hogging the limelight with his fancy schoolwork! But I am doing well and enjoying a bit of a rest and socialising with all my friends over here. You know, there is nothing more conducive to good conversation than a fresh bale of hay!
But as soon as I hear #1, I go over and say hello to her. If it is too muddy and she cannot bring me out for a groom, then she brings me apples and carrots and gives them to me when nobody else is looking. We wouldn't want the others to get jealous, would we?!
OK, I shall now turn the keyboard over to The Big V who is leading such an exciting life at the moment!
Vidock: Studly and Scholarly Neighs, Buddies far and wide! I have now been in my new place for a week and I have already progressed in leaps and bounds!
Mr. JJR likes to start our work by lunging me:
I even went over a tiny jump the other day!
And then he rides me. He says that my stride has improved dramatically already!
After I'm done working and I have been rubbed down, #1 takes me back to my paddock and then brings me my treat bucket!
As you can see, I have a nice shelter in my paddock. #1 tried it out and saw that it really keeps out the wind and is nice and dry inside, even when it is raining hard. Because I am working so hard, I am already getting extra grain rations, and #1 is bringing me some supplements. I am being very well looked after!
