Manly Monday



Vidock: Studly Monday, if you please! #1 is back, the sun is shining, and Mr. JP is pleased with me. Life is good, folks!


Tommy: We "sprang forward" over the weekend so now it's light until after 8pm. More, longer walks for me!!


Da Beebs: Napping on a Peggy's Blankie in a sunpuddle. It doesn't get much better than this!


Da Genj: Same here!

 
 #1 wanted to share one more bit of manliness. A week ago today, she was there for the biggest race of the year in the Japanese Draft Horse Ban'Ei Heavy Pull Race circuit. She decided to bet on a big black stallion called "Ore no Kokoro" (that means "My Heart" in Japanese), and he won! Here he is:




In case you were wondering, he is huge. He weighs almost 2600lb! For comparative purposes, our Big V "only" weighs around 1950lb!

My human is always awed by how massive those horses are! She thought Vidock was pretty big!

You boys are all looking great today. That sure is a huge horse. Did #1 spend all her winnings on treats for all of you?

You are all looking very manly. That stallion is very big. My mum's favourite horse that she had for 22 years was an ex racehorse and near enough half that weight.

Wow, that horse is humongous!!! We would definitely steer clear of him, wouldn't want him to step on our toes:) He is also beautiful.

What extraordinary animals those horses are. Whenever we see #1's head nest to Vidock's we realise how huge he is. We'd love to see #1 next to this big beautiful fellow!

What great horses ! Looks a bit more interesting than the "Tractor Pulls" our County Fairs feature !
