Wednesday Whinnies


Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend! To be honest, there isn't a lot to tell you at the moment. It is often foggy and we are mainly muddy!



I get brought in and vaguely brushed a couple of times a week when Mr. JP rides me:


Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! I am even muddier than the Big V because, of course, I am light in colour, and also I don't get brushed at the moment. Did you know that, when it's cold and horses live outside, it's better not to brush us too much as the mud protects against the cold?


This is a picture from when we had all that hoar frost and you can see the nice coating of mud I have:


Last but not least, here is a pic of my Mama, Hotesse, and my sissy, Doucette, in the fog:

Vidock, you are looking handsome as always. Violette, we are glad the mud is helping you keep warm. When our mom rode, the horses always had blankets on when turned out to pasture in the winter, but then, it could get extremely cold in Ottawa, which is where she used to ride.

Too bad we can't get the Momster to think that way about mud on us. For some reason she feels the need to pull out a bucket of warm water and clean our paws:)

The photo of the girls in the fog looks like it could be a scene from a fairy tale or folk tale about horses appearing in the mist.

Mud keeps you warm? I wonder if I tell mum she will bring mud to bed. Probably not.
