Violette and Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, EveryFriend! I can't believe it's already been a whole week since we last posted.

I don't have much in the way of exciting photos to share with you this week. #1 took this rather nice one a couple of days ago:

And I wanted to show you how beautifully my mane has grown. At one point it was pretty ratty, so I got some Biotin supplements to make it grow in nicely, and look at it now!

And here is a fun photo of Mr. E the other day, trying to explain to #1 how to take me out of my field on her own without falling into that mud puddle that she fell into twice. But #1 says she's chicken, and if there's someone else there to give her hand, then that's the way she will go!

Oh and #1 says she has ordered a lovely new headcollar for me. She will pick it up when she goes to England soon. Go? Soon? Nooooooooooo!

Vidock: Studly Neighs, Pals. I gave you a bit of an update on Monday already so you know I am now back outside in my field, I am also back working, although only until mid-March. #1 has decided that I have learned what I can learn from this particular teacher. So, I will have a bit of a break and then go off for while to where I was born, so that Mr. E can help me get my driving licence!

I also got to finally try out my  mesh cooling rug this week. I think it looks great and it's a perfect fit!

Oh, and I have something exciting to show you. Kathleen Coy, whom many of you know and who did the wonderful paintings of Sen-Chan and Yuu-Chan that hang in #1's bedroom, did a charcoal drawing of me to celebrate the Year of the Horse! #1 absolutely loved it and so she bought it, and it arrived this week. It will take her some time to frame it, but this is what she is thinking of:

Wishing you all a very neighful weekend!


  1. Violette, you are looking lovely and your mane is pawsome :)
    You must be very pleased :)
    Good to see you out and about Vidock. WE love that charcoal pic too!

  2. Oooo, I love that drawing of you, Vidock! BTW, I have no idea what a cooling rug is - could you tell us about it?

  3. That us exactly how we picture you working and galloping about Vidock. Violette your mane is very beautiful. That biotin must be a miracle cure.

  4. We love the drawing of Vidock it's so full of movement. We have never heard of a cooling rug - is it full of holes so the heat can escape after exercise?
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. Oh that Charcoal drawing is really terrific. We like that a lot.Good to see the horses. Have a great week end.

  6. What a beautiful painting the first picture would make

  9. Violette we wonder what colour the new head collar will be?!! Can we guess? Heehee! And yes, your mane looks especially lovely now! Vidock, we know you will love going back to your old friends and that you will work hard!
    We like the charcoal drawing and mat choice!

  10. Le dessin est magnifique. Ce n'est pas évident d'arriver à reproduire aussi bien un cheval en mouvement.
    Vidock a l'age .... d'aller au Lycée et de passer son permis de conduire ....
    Bonne soirée.

  11. Your mane looks lovely Violette. You look very smart in your cooler Vidock. The charcoal drawing is lovely.

  12. Violette, Mommy is envious of your lovely white mane--hers is nearly that color, too!! Vidock, we can't wait to see you pulling your own vehicle, too exciting.

  13. Violette, Mom says she hears that biotin is good for the hair and nails. We have to say that must be so because your mane is looking magnificent. And Vidock, we are happy to hear you will have a change of instructors:)

    The charcoal drawing is impressive, but so isn't everything that Kathleen does.

    You have a neigh-filled weekend too.

  15. Violette, your mane looks lovely! And Vidock, that drawing of you is wonderful! Neigh back at'cha! :)

  16. Your mane is lovely, Violette. Maybe our mum should get some biotin supplements as her mane looks pretty thin these days.
    We're glad you will be moving on, Vidock. Will Violette be able to come

  17. Such a pretty drawing!

    I love your barns - ours are tin and metal with no character.

  18. Violette! YOU are gorgeous! Vidock I am glad you will be learning from someone else and when you get your drivers license, will you tie me for a ride?

  19. Fab drawing Vidock. And Violet your mane hairs are just bootiful
