Friday Farewell


Vidock: Neighs, EveryFriend. It's me, The Big V, again. I hope you don't mind my posting twice in three days. My sis Violette and I know we're not as popular as Tommy and the kitties (we know because the number of comments drops off dramatically when we post) but I have something important to tell you. You see, I found out yesterday that my Mama, Jessy, has galloped off over the Rainbow Bridge to Horse Heaven, at the age of twenty.

My Mama was a beautiful lady who produced seven foals over her career as a broodmare, five girls and two boys. She was a gentle and kind soul, and she will be sorely missed.



Mama Jessy has gone off to join my younger sister Altesse, who left for the Bridge far too soon, at the age of five, a year ago:


I will always try to make them both proud of me. I know I can be a little bit naughty but I am a good boy, really, and I am lucky to have a #1 who loves me and takes good care of me. Here is a shot of me with Mama Jessy when I was about five weeks old:


And here I am now:


FAREWELL, MAMA JESSY from your loving son, Vidock.

I'm so sorry, Vidock! I know I would be so devastated if I lost my mother.

BTW, don't feel bad about getting fewer comments than Tommy and the Chans - I think you and Violette are equally as awesome!

We're so sorry to hear the news of your mum's passing. She was beautiful, so beautiful. She lives on in you, sweetheart and without a doubt we know you will make her proud. Her life force has joined that of your sister to become part of the universe in which we all live. The will always be with you, dear one.

Kari said...

P.S. The photo of you and your mum is very special to us. Our mum always loved the white arrow on your sweet head. She didn't know enough about Percherons to know that it would go away as you grew.

Vidock, I am truly sorry Mama Jesse went to the Bridge. I remember a few times when you neighed about her.

I will also say that you, Violette, Hotesse even Jesse the few times we got to meet her, always drew me and my mom here. We never knew how much interest we could have in horses till then, and we have learned as much as you, and Violette have seen for to teach us about how your care runs and how you both are trained, housed and most of all, loved. We have even shown you and the blog to interested people.

XX to you and Violette dear Vidock
