Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: #1 says she can't believe were already half way through May. I am not sure what May is but it seems we're getting through it! It has gotten warmer. We have open windows, and #1 has crossed fingers that you know who doesn't demolish all the netting on them, trying to get at the lizards. I of course never cause any damage.

I do enjoy sitting at the kitchen window.

And helping #1 with her work.

A little pillow talk with #1:

Mr. G managed to snap a picture of that pipsqueak, Benny, sticking his tongue out at me behind my back!

What can you do? I just ignored him and had a nap.

Manly Monday


Benny: Mrrrggghhhewowwww! Benny here! How are you all? I am happy to be kicking off Manly Monday with this shot of me waiting for my morning treats. As I sleep with #1, I get treats both in the morning and at bedtime!

And here I am at the open kitchen window! There are lots of cool lizards to watch!

Ollie: #1 managed to get a flying ears shot of me in the garden!

And Mr. G took this one of me with my stuffies:

The Big V: Handsome Neighs, EveryFriend! When the farrier came to get me in teh field for my hooficure last week, #1 got this great shot of me:

And I think this head shot is quite cool.

I am in fact wearing Heloise's head collar. The farrier put mine on her and vice versa, but #1 said this one really suited me as well!

We wish you all a good week.

Super Snuggles on Sunday!


Tama-Chan: Hello, Dear Friends, and welcome to our weekly snuggle post! Why "super" this week? Because we have an awesome line-up of photos for you! As you know, three of the horses had birthdays this week, so #1 got lots of photos with them. I think we shall start with this lovely one of The Big V and Heloise, who is now his number one girl:

Next up is Hotesse who was looking lovelier than ever on her birthday!

Miss Violette:

The Big V:

Miss Heloise:

And an extra one of #1 with both The Big V and Heloise!

And now to the rest of us.  I have been doing my usual snuggling with #1:

And there have been mornings when all of us have been with #1 on her bed!

Mr. G and Ms. N came to visit us yesterday and he took some great pics also, such as this one of #1 and Benny:

And this is just one of a great series of pics he took of #1 and Ollie:

Thank you, Mr. G, for always taking such great pics of us with your big Nikon camera!

Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday


Rainbow Sei: #1 was able to access some of those old albums on her desktop and so she thought it would be fun today to do a single kitty post. And that kitty is... IKKYU, the first in a long line of Abyssinian cats bearing Japanese names!

After she moved to Chicago and then back to France, Ikkyu used to travel to Canada with #1 to spend his summers in Prince Edward Island. He loved being at the cottage!

Ikkyu was very well travelled. Aside from planes, he also travelled a couple of times in #1's car on the Eurotunnel!

But he really liked being home the most, especially when there were good sunpuddles to lie in!

Ikkyu hated almost everyone other than #1, but to her, he was the gentlest, sweetest, most affectionate boy!

Festive Friday with Hotesse, Violette and Vidock!


Hotesse: Wise neighs, everyone, and welcome to our festive post! Why festive? Because we have three, count them, THREE birthdays this week! I kicked off the ball on Wednesday, followed by The Big V on Thursday, and today is my daughter Violette's birthday! Isn't that fun?

Let me start with a photo taken by #1 on my birthday. She of course came to visit me and bring me treats!

You know, 27 is a grand old age for any horse, but it is particularly rare in Percherons. Just like large dogs vs small dogs, the draft breeds tend to have shorter lifespans. I guess I am lucky and have pretty good genes, eh? And you know the best thing? I am now living my golden years in a place where I am loved and well taken care of, and I would like to say a special thank you to those among our blogging friends who helped #1 make that happen three years ago. She could not saved me and my youngest daughter, Heloise without the generosity of friends. As you know, my joints are a bit creaky but, as #1 says, so are hers! I get the right medication and #1 and Ms. C say I look really good! Here is another shot of me taken a few days ago:

The Big V: Handsome Neighs, everyone! Can you believe that I am 13 years old? I still feel like a three year old! Of course, this is what I looked like when I was three:

Do you see my bro, woofie Tommy in the picture?

And this is what I look like now:

Don't you think I have improved with age?

Violette: Pretty neighs! Today is my birthday! I am also 13 today, just like The Big V. #1 tells me that I grow more beautiful with each passing year!

I look a lot like my Mama, Hotesse, except that I am bigger. You can see it in this picture, where I am on the left and mama is on the right:

I am eagerly waiting for #1 to arrive, with apples and carrots!

Thankful Thursday


Ollie: Yesterday morning, the farrier came to trim the horses' hooves. Ms. C was away for the day and my two girls had gone with her, but #1 took me along anyway, and I am really thankful because I got to run and run and run!

Can you see just how curly my coat is?
