Violette: Pretty neighs, Dear Friends! These are busy times for both of us! I have a very busy weekend coming up as I am taking part in the big parade in our town on Saturday, and then am stationed at our medieval castle on Saturday and Sunday afternoon, so that everyone can come and admire me! In anticipation, I have been taking it easy:
As it hasn't been that long since #1's shoulder dislocation accident, she decided that she would not ride me herself and so she asked her young friend, Mr. V, if he would. He was so pleased to say yes! He is a delightful and very handsome young man, and both #1 and I are thrilled!
You may remember that I have had ongoing lameness issues and that, sadly, has not changed. The parade won't be hard because it is all at a walk and is on hard surfaces which are much easier for me. But out farrier came on Monday and he said it would help me even more if I had my shoes (front only) put on back to front. Can you believe that?
#1 took this rather nice picture of me when the farrier was there. The fog from the hot shoe made it very atmospheric!
Vidock: I had a lot of fun a few days ago when my Lusitanian friend, 'Ti Iago, came back so we could work together. I never knew how much it could be to
play work with another horse!
Yesterday morning, I went to see the amazing Dr. F , one of France's best veterinary osteopaths. #1 wanted me to have a tune-up as I have been doing lots of new stuff these past months, and she wanted to make sure there was no undue stress on my body. Dr. F checked me out very carefully:
Neeeeeighs from your studly buddy!
