Da Beebs: Dear Friends, this is it. This is the day that #1 has been working toward for so long, tehday when Vidock is shown at the big Percheron show and #1's Italian friend performs with her Percheron stallion, J'Adore (yes, by the way, to all our good friends who left comments about J'Adore yesterday - HE is a STALLION!).
Anyway, I have a confession to make… I did not make #1's day easy yesterday. As she was frantically trying to get everything organised, I Houbibi'ed! You see, someone dropped in unannounced and forgot to close the outer door of our Houbibi-Prood porch, so next time the front door opened, I was gone. That was at 8:30am and #1 had to be gone almost all day. She was sick with worry but there was nothing she could do, other than leave the door to the outside in the back room open and hope I would come home on my own. It was only when she returned at 7pm that she found me UTB in that room, screaming like a banshee (it was pouring with rain and I really had to come in). I feel a little bit bad for #1 and putting her through all that, but I know she will forgive me and is just so happy I am safe.
Oh, and here is a pic of Vidock getting his shower yesterday in preparation for the big day!
Yes, that is a pressure-washer, and he loves it!
And finally, here is another pic of #1 riding J'Adore as his "Mamma", Simonetta, makes him do the Spanish Walk:
