Violette and Vidock Vendredi


Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! How are you all? Our # is so busy right now that we are not seeing her as often as we would like, but here is a lovely photo she took of me the other morning, when the mist had not yet lifted properly:


It's rather mysterious, don't you think?


Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend. I agree with Violette about insufficient visits from #1. Here is a photo she took when she last visited:


She says she loves my white head with the dark body! She also says that my colouring is pretty good at hiding dirt!


#1 here. Please indulge me for my third "V" of the day. I have for several years been a huge fan of British dressage rider Charlotte Dujardin and her amazing horse, Valegro. This week, the pair broke two world records in two days at the Olympia International Horse Show in London. The records they broke had both been set by them! They are a true inspiration to anyone who has ever loved watching horses and riders at their best. So, here is a photo I took from the TV set as they were breaking the world record in the Grand Prix Freestyle to earn an amazing 94.3% (to give you an idea, the rider who came second got 83.5%):

  11. We think thy when you want to be with #1, you just need to think about her and where she is and like light, you will both be there. Valegro is a very nimble horse and very beautiful, like the both of you.

  14. The Mommy here,
    Our niece used to do dressage and I loved it. Alas, it does not appear on Canadian Sports TV. I shall have to see if I can find a replay online. BTW, I LOVE that picture of Violette!
