Wednesday Whinnies

Violette: Pretty Neighs Everyone1 I hope you don't think that I am becoming a blog hog... I do have stuff to tell you about, and I also want to give a little space to my Mama,  little sister and my little brother to say hello!

Firstly, I saw the farrier last Saturday for a special pedi, following my consultation with the osteopath last week. He said I needed special shoes with bars on them to spread my weight more evenly and bring some relief to the navicular ligament that has been hurting me.

This is what the shoes look like:

And here I am getting them put on:


By the way, that slightly grubby looking spot is where I got my hairs shaved for the injection.

Now over the past few days, #1 has been busy visiting various members of my family. She went to see my Mama, Hôtesse:

Isn't she gorgeous? Whilst there, she also saw my little brother Ebène, but you already know all about that:

I don't remember if I mentioned that my little sister, Doucette, now lives in the field next to #1's house, the same one I was in. She is there with two of her moo friends. Anyway, #1 has been going to see her every day and taking her carrots which she loves (Ebène loves apples but she loves carrots!)..Just like I used to do, she comes right over when she sees #1:

With the coming of warmer weather, I have been getting some itchy spots on my legs, and #1 comes every couple of days to put stuff on them:

I am lucky to have someone who loves me and takes care of me! 

Vidock: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz........

 I am very busy snoozing in my fieldzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz........................


  1. That's really interesting about how shoes can help you, Violette! I think the same is true of humans sometimes.

  2. Violette, we purr your new shoes help your leg feel better.
    You and your family are looking very good.
    Vidock, you are too funny.
    We like the little braid in your mane.
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  3. You are looking quite fashionable Vidock and we love your new shoes Violette. We must say that you have a very handsome family Violette.

  4. Beautiful family you have. It seems like a lot would depend on how your feet are trimmed; how you weight bear.( Our mum knows not much about horses.).Are your itchy spots from allergies? Horse care seems to be quite complicated but interesting. We think the world of you and hope you are feeling more comfortable.

  5. We hope your new shoe helps your leg feel better. You have a beautiful family, Violette ! We can see you're sleeping, Vidock, but do you snore ? Purrs

  6. So is that a hoof-a-cure?
