Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! Well, summer has certainly come with a vengeance here! It was 30C (almost 90F) yesterday and it's supposed to go up to 33C today. According to #1, I am a little bit naughty because I tend to monopolise the shelter in my field, which is the place where there are fewest flies. But, as soon as I see #1 coming, I immediately go over to her!
Of course, she always has apples for me, but she is also very good about putting fly repellent on me. And I am outstandingly good about letting her do it. She doesn't even put on a headcollar, and I stand perfectly still as she sprays me. A lot of horses are frightened of sprays. Can you believe it?
Once I am covered in repellent spray, then it is safe for me to go and graze!
Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend! Well, I am not as good as Miss Goody-Four-Hooves Violette about the fly repellent. I really don't like the spray much. But I do have a shelter all to myself anyway, so I mostly hang out in there. Except when #1 arrives and calls me!
And I pose nicely for her!
And guess what? My Fairy Godmother, Ms. T, has returned! She spends part of the year in California and the rest here. She came over to see how much I had grown and give me some nice brushies!
Here is hoping you're getting some nice sunshine, wherever you are!
