Violette: Pretty Neighs, everyone! I hope you are all well. Our #1 has been here, there, and everywhere, and she is leaving again today, until late Monday! On the other hand, the Big V is coming home this weekend from his convalescence, so that is a good thing.
So, family Friday... You know what? My little sister, Héloise, is a clown! You don't believe me? Take a look at this:
Where on earth did she learn to do that? And look at those ears!!!
Do you think it's some kind of semaphore?
Ah, this is better! She looks like a proper filly now!
She is growing like a weed! Here is a more elegant shot of her:
This is nothing to do with me or my family, but #1 had the great good fortune last week to go and see some horses working in vineyards south of here. They were totally awesome, so I thought it would be nice to share some pics:
This is a beautiful "Comtois" breed draft mare called Mascotte:
And this is a Percheron gelding called Vaillant:
Everything is organic, and all kinds of flowers and tomatoes grow along the vines, to energise them! #1 got to try (and bring home) some of the great wine produced there!
It is really great to use horses in vineyards, rather than tractors, because they cause no destruction and do not compact the soil!
Just in case you were missing me, I thought I would end with a shot of me:
