Vidock's Family Friday!

Vidock: I know I am pushing it a bit with two horsey posts in a few days, but I neigh that you will bear with me and want to read as I tell you about my latest family reunion this week.

As you know, Violette and I went for outstanding luxury spa treatment earlier this week and the location was my birthplace, which I always remember fondly. Almost my whole family still lives there and it is always such a treat to see them all.

We have shown you this photo before but I was able to say neigh to my Grandmama, Belle des Choux, on my way in:

Grandmama is a lady of advanced years but she is still very feisty and quite beautiful:

Now do you see the beautiful grey lady at the back of that picture? That is my mama, Jessy!

Here is a fun photo showing me chatting with her over the stalls:

She told me that she thought I had grown into a very handsome boy. Over the years, my Mama Jessy has had seven foals, but only two boys in the lot!

Here we are, having a three-way chat with GrandMama Belle des Choux (she is my Daddy Orgueil's Mama):

And of course, my Daddy Orgueil was there too, although he is not in the building I was in. Here he is, being looked at by the amazing Dr. F:

Now the other great thing is that three of my sisters also still live there! Two are older than me and one younger. Here is my older sister, Rumba. She is my half-sister as we have the same Mama but she had a different Daddy, although her Daddy was actually my Daddy's first cousin, so we are pretty closely related!

And this is my other half-sister, Sissy (Ha!):

She is the one on the right. On the left is her half-sister, Sireine (they have the same Daddy).

And there is also my younger (by one year) full sister, with the same Daddy AND the same Mama! Her name is Altesse (That means "highness" and she believes in it completely…). She is pretty cute:

And last but not last, do any of you old-time readers remember my half-brother (we have the same Daddy), Big Tom? Well, he is still there as well!. Here he is, getting a special hug from Dr. F:

I feel really privileged to be able to go back to my birthplace regularly and see all of my family. It is very unusual for horses to be able to do that (and woofies and kitties too, I am told), so I am extra-lucky.


  1. Vidock, it was so nice to meet your family.
    They are lovely.Bet you had a super time with them too :)
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  2. What a beautiful family you have, Vidock! My brothers are spread all over California so I doubt I will see them again except in photos. I do see my breeder when I go to shows, though.

  3. That's a really lovely family, Vidock. I don't know ANY of my cat relatives. I have to assume that there are some somewhere.
