Sore Sunday with Snuggles!

Tama-Chan: Fear not, Dear Readers, none of us is sore. It is #1 who is almost unable to move… She is no longer used to being on horseback two hours at a stretch and is paying the price. But she is grinning from ear to ear as she does it, so we don't feel hugely sorry for her yet. You see, it seems the parade yesterday was just amazing. Violette was as perfect as any horse could be. She shied at nothing, basked in the attention and enjoyed every minute of the parade, plus every minute of being snuggled by hundreds of people this afternoon! We don't yet have all the photos taken by various friends, but we will share a few with you today, in lieu of our regular SoS post, and will leave the commentary to Miss Violette:

A little Sunday Snuggle as we wait patiently for the parade to start in the supermarket car park.

And we're on our way!

Is #1 looking happy???

In town:

#1's eye view:

Coming into the chateau:

I spent the afternoon being visited by lots and lots of people and #1 keeps saying how awed she is at how nice and welcoming I am to everyone, especially children!

The fact is that I just love meeting people! Here is one last pic, of me going home through the same streets that we had ridden in a few hours previously!

I hope you enjoyed these few pics of my (and #1's) big day!


  1. This looks like it was just an AMAZING day and I can't wait to see more!

  2. Oh, that's amazing ! You're so beautiful, and so nice with people Violette ! If #1's smile could have gone all around her head, it would have done so, she looks so proud on your back ! Mum has, hem, compassionate thought for her backside... Purrs

  3. We always enjoy looking at where you love and the people who visit. You look very good together and very magnificent indeed. We thought you would be in armour though. I think it's from all those Hollywood films we see.

  4. e are delighted that you and #1 had such a great time in the parade :)
    We can't wait to see more pics!

  7. Love the pictures. #1 and Violette look so regal as if Violette was always a royal horse. Hope #1 feels better soon!

  8. Tu as l'air incroyablement dans ton élément Violette !
    Comme si tu avais faite pour aimer la foule et te faire admirer.
    Petit (... grand !) cheval bien dans sa tête.
    Je compatis pour les courbatures et autres désagréments.
    Un peu d'aspirine ou d'arnica ça fait du bien.
    Bonne soirée

  12. We don't think #1's smile could be any bigger. It sure looks like any pain she is in today was well worth it. We are so proud of you Miss V for being such a great ambassador for your breed and keeping #1 safe on your ride. Well done.
