V & H Vendredi


Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! It's been a while since we horsies posted. #1 has been visiting us every Thursday, and yesterday was a little bit special because we all got our hooficures! Ms. C was there too, as Hotesse and Heloise are not as used to it, and need some assistance.

He started with my sis, Heloise. This is only the second time she has been trimmed like that, and she is really good! Everyone was very proud of her!

Next up was our Mama, Hotesse. Now, I have to tell you that learning to give your feet and stand still for the farrier at the age of 25 is no easy task! Mama needed some help and some cajoling, but they got her done in the end!

I was third in line. I, of course, am an old hand at this, so no probs, right?

At the moment, we are just getting our hooves trimmed. No shoes. 

The Big V went last and he, of course, had to have his beloved standing right next to him...

I have to say that that boy is a little bit lazy. At one point, he was using Ms. C as a headrest!

So, we're all one for this year. Our next hooficure appointment is for early February!

Thankful Thursday


Genji: #1 tells us that, today, on the other side of the big water, there is a big feast called Thanksgiving, and much turkey is eaten. I confess that we prefer chicken, and we're not getting turkey anyway (maybe we'll get chicken, though?). What we are, however, is thankful for all the good thing that life brings us, for being a family, and for #1 being so busy that she can't go out much!

We think it is important to be thankful each and every day!

Wordless Wednesday


Keeping an eye on #1:

By the way, Queen Tama is in a major sulk. For the last couple of weeks, she has been getting less comments on her Tuesday posts than anyone else. Help! She is threatening to go on strike!

Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: #1 is enjoying a slight slowing-down in her pace of work, but is expecting to be back up to 150% by the end of the week. Also, we will find out today whether we will have much of a relief from our lockdown by Christmas.

In the meantime, I remain busy with my own pastimes.

#1 said I should show you again just how green my eyes are:

Manly Monday


Vidock: Handsome neighs, EveryFriend! The Big V here! Here are a couple of pics of me pulling funny faces. Why am I pulling funny faces? Well, because I just eaten my apples and carrots, and I was licking my chops!

OIllie: I have a couple of pics of me showing Fernant how to run like the wind!

Genji: Here I am, hanging out with mini Rainbow Beebs.

And enjoying a sunpudle:

We wish you all a good week!

Snuggles on Sunday


Tama-Chan: Welcome to our Snuggles on Sunday post. #1 says that we have been particularly snuggly lately, or maybe she is noticing it more because she is so busy with work, and so spends less time at the sofa where we can easily get to her! So, let me start with a shot of the two of us on the sofa:

In this one, #1 snuck up on me as I was sneakingup on young Ollie:

In this rather unusual one, Genji and I are actually sharing #1:
But the Blue Boy often ends up getting pride of place:
I think you know by now that a lot of Ollie and Genji snuggles with #1 take place in the bedroom early morning:
You wonder how #1 ever manages to get out of her bed!
And #1 managed to get a full complement of horse snuggles this week, starting with Miss Violette!

And the Big V!

The lighting was not great for the snuggle selfies with Hotesse and Heloise:

 And that's our full set of snuggle pics for this week. Please stay warm and stay safe!

Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday


Rainbow Sei: Down at Poupounette Central, the days are drawing in and the leaves are falling. Soon, it will be time for Christmas decorations, a time that all of us at the Bridge remember fondly... But I digress. You know that Tommy and Da Beebs are buried side by side, under the Japanese cherry tree? The leaves turn a beautiful colour, and #1 arranged them on the boys' gravestones.

So, today, I thought we would just have some nice pics of Da Beebs and Tommy. I hope that is OK with you. I'll start with Beebs:

Beebs just loved having his ears rubbed!

And now for Tommy:

I couldn't resist including one with me in it!

Always such a happy boy!

It's been nice to focus on just a couple of us and use more photos! I wish you all a good "SEIturday"!
