Vidock and Violette Vendredi

Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend! I have been continuing to make progress in my logging activities and everyone around me is impressed by my huge strength! I can now pull logs that are 400-500kg (around 1000lb) as though they were just little twigs!

Behold the mighty stallion!

"Getting Hitched"!

Intricate Maneuvering:

My "basic training" with Uncle E is now deemed to be complete. I passed all tests with galloping colours! I am due to return to my regular field tomorrow for a bit of R&R!

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Dear Friends! Well, I got my nails done as planned last Friday:

#1 was very proud of me because I was really good for the farrier, even when there was all that smoke!

Here is a picture of me getting brushies from #1 that we haven't shown you before. My outstretched neck is a sign that she is hitting a really sweet spot!

Oh, and here is a fun thing! #1 went to an agricultural fair last weekend and she met two of my half-sisters there! We have the same Mama! They are both quite a bit older than me, but please meet Mignonne and Neva!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Violette, do you try and groom #1 when she gets the sweet spot? One of mum's horses used to groom her shoulder when she gave him scritches.
