Violette and Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Dear Friends! How are you all? I am fine, despite the terrible weather we have been having these past few days. It has not been very cold at all but I am still wearing my big woolly coat! #1 says it is quite a challenge to groom me but I think she does a great job!

She took this rather cute photo of me a few days ago:

And here is a bit of a close-up:

I was of course waiting for my treat bucket!

And #1 got a friend to do a little photo shot of the two of us!

Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend! #1 says I have lately been reminding her of a singer called Patti Labelle… WHO???? Well, #1 says that she was famous for flinging her shoes across the stage during her concerts, and I am doing the same. No, not during concerts, silly! I have managed to lose the same shoe on my front left hoof twice in a week!  It's hard work for my teacher nailing 'em back on. #1 is hoping the farrier will come soon.

In the meantime, I continue with my lessons:

and look handsome in my field:

Oh, and here is the view from the other side:

#1 was trying to find the shoe I had lost. It turns out it was in the sand riding school.


  1. It was certainly a beautiful day when these photos were taken! I hope the weather improves soon.

  2. Violette and Vidock, you both look marvelous and happy!
    Violette, it is cold here ,so your coat would come in handy ;)

  3. Hi Violette and Vidock !
    I see you both looks furry good as always !
    I think the bad weather you had is at my place now.

  4. Both of you look very handsome even in poor weather. It's good to see you all died out in purple Violette and with your purple treat bucket as well. Vidock, you are magnificent as always.

  5. Oh dear. The word should be decked. I am sorry Violette. This auto correct is a bane.

  6. Your fields look quite muddy as does everything in the UK. The rain is still relentless and looking at your fields it is there too. How we would love a completely dry day or two and expect you would too. Nice pictures of #1 and Violette. Vidock is looking great and hope he finds his shoe!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  7. I love your purple harness, beautiful

  8. Violette and Vidock, you are both looking adorable! Vidock, I hope you won't lose your shoe again!

  9. You two always look so Royal! Have a happy weekend everyone!

  10. Violette - we think you are extra adorable with the purple halter and the fuzzy coat.

    Vidock - you are probably lucky #1 keep being able to find those shoes you keep trying to lose

    Thank you to #1 for visiting my blog and wishing me well. I have taken my medicine three days in a row now. I'm trying to be cooperative.

  13. Violette une "petite" jument heureuse ... et un vrai nounours ! Impressionnant manteau d'hiver.
    Quand à Vidock, c'est autre chose. De plus en plus beau, racé, impressionnant ce qu'il a changé.
    Bonne soirée.

  14. Vidock, we like the white on your face showing through your dappled furs.

    Violette, you are the Style Queen with all your violet accessories! :)

    Have a good weekend... all of you! :)

  15. We love seeing you two! Violette, we could use your woolly coat's so cold! And Vidock...we think you like to go barefoot! :)

  16. Violette, you are looking very beautiful in your photos. We bet there was something very special in that purple treat bowl. Vidock, we were also going to ask if you prefer to be barefoot. Hope you don't fling those shoes too far.
