Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! It's beginning to get quite cool and we will be soon turning ourselves into big woolly bears rather than sleek horses when we grow our winter coats! In the meantime, however, the farrier came on Monday and both Vidock and I got new shoes. I decided to go for a slightly different style this time, a little longer at the back...
It's normally quite boring when the farrier is at work, especially that our current farrier is very meticulous so takes a pretty long time. But #1 makes sure I am kept entertained with what she calls my "lollipop" (a Himalayan salt lick):
Here is a nice shot of me in my field taken by #1 a few days ago:
And see how beautifully sleek my mane is? Some of you may remember that when I joined the Poupounette Gang, I didn't have much of a mane at all.
Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend! I also got some new shoes, and #1 caught one of those "hot shoe" shots of me this time!
Despite what #1 might tell you, I was a really good boy for the farrier.
And I continue to make progress at my lessons. Look at this next shot:
If you look closely, you will see that Mr. JPD is not even holding the reins!
And here is one of me showing off my beautiful moves:
Wishing you all an excellent Friday!
