Wednesday Whinnies

Vidock: Studly Neighs, Every Friend! So, #1 is away and we have been abandoned, but we wanted to share with you a few photos from just before when #1 left, as we both got new shoes on Friday! #1 didn't manage to get many photos of the farrier at work because she was actually holding us most of the time!

In other news, whilst in England this week, #1 has also been spending sometime with Percheron horses in Hampshire, and here are a few photos she sent us from there.

This is Crystal on the left and Axl on the right. He has been English Champion Percheron Stallion more than once and works on the farm, as does his "missus" Crystal who is in foal to him. The baby is due in a couple of months. These two live together in the same field!

#1 spent part of the afternoon behind these four (left to right: Axl, Crystal, Edith and Felicity) pulling a heavy roller over the field:

And these guys, Leon and Levi, were busy delivering hay to the various herds, with Harbridge Church in the background:

By the way, Harbridge Church has a beautiful stained glass window in it featuring Percheron horses at work!

Isn't it just beautiful?


  1. You both looked really pleased with your new shoes. We enjoyed looking at the stained glass. It's very grand and we think when the sun shines the horses would look very majestic as well.

  2. I LOVED seeing the stained-glass window with Percheron horses on it! And it is interesting and fun to see the other Percheron's where #1 is right now, working. I didn't know they did that until reading your blog this past year or so. I was a silly kitty and thought everyone was in a field or box just spinning the hours away. It is good to work.

    Crystal and Axl are beautiful. I would love to see the baby!

  3. The stain glassed window is gorgeous. Those horses are great too. Bet that was fun to be able to see them get driven. Have a great day.

  4. The Church window is lovely and #1 has had some good weather in the UK this time.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  8. Percherons are such majestic horses!

  9. Great photo's. The window is just beautiful x

  10. J'aime beaucoup la photo avec les quatre chevaux, la plaine et le ciel menaçant. Elle est très belle.
    Bonne soirée.

  11. We hope you are happy with your new shoes. #1 is visiting with some beautiful Percherons there. We hope we will be able to see the new foal one day in the future.

  12. How marvelous and what fun! Just love the stained glass window!

  13. You two will have the nicest shoes on the block now! :)

    The stained glass window is delightfully delicate when considering the stature of its' subject matter..really beautiful!

  14. Hello Vidock & Violette: You are both looking wonderful especially with new shoes!!
    I love seeing the photos of Axel & his Missus & the other Percherons...they are my favorite Draft breed by far!! #1 you are so blessed to be able to travel & visit such stunning horses! Safe trip.
    Yours, Sherri-Ellen & Nylablue too <3
