Tom: We are very thankful that #1 came home safely to us last night after driving a total of more than six hours to get to her destination and back. #1 did indeed go to the French chateau of the King of… Morocco! He is a great fan of Percheron horses and has a number of them. He has generously agreed to take several over to the United States next year for the 2014 World Percheron Congress in Massachusetts. The project is #1's brainchild and she was there to start discussing the logistics details which are many. Sadly, there are no photos as photography is not allowed on site, but apparently it was all beautiful, starting with the horses!
But here are photos of the two stallions who will be going, taken back in August at the big Percheron Fair (the one that Violette was at!):
So, if you would like to see these gorgeous boys and are on the East Coast, the place to be will be West Springfield, Massachusetts, between October 6 and 13, 2014. #1 will be there too!
Let's have a reality check after all that fancy stuff, shall we? I have a couple of great toe close-ups for you!
Oh, and Da Beebs was very thankful for the great box he got to play in!
And we are thankful for our continued sunshine, although the nights are icy and the mornings nippy. #1 says it means she can take some nice photos!
Our newest camera has just gone in for repairs and #1 is beginning to wonder if she transmits camera-destroying vibes...
