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?
