Thankful Thursday!

Fernant: Woofs Everyone! Your favourite blonde here! You weren't expecting me to be posting, were you? #1 said it was OK because I am so thankful. You see, my family went off on a three week vacation yesterday, and I get to spend all that time with some of my favourite people: my pal Ollie, #1, and the fabulous Chan kitties. I think I am a really lucky boy! My family will be back on Christmas Day!

I know that Ollie and I are going to have the best time together!

In case you were wondering, I sleep at home and spend the days with the Gang. That way, Basha, my kitty bro, won't have to get too lonely.

Wednesday Whinnies

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone. We thought you might like another update on the campaign to get my Mama and Sister out of where they are. There isn't a whole lot to report. We have actually reached the grand sum of €3,000 (including a cash donation) so, #1 hopes to have money for the farrier, the dentist and winter feed. #1 has spoken to the owner who is still making his cider but has promised to get together to discuss price over the coming days. In the interim, #1 and Ollie visit the girls every day and deliver apples and carrots. Here are a few photos from the last few days.

We thought you might also like to see a pic of me:

By the way, #1 was talking the other day to the guy who bread my Dad, Navarro, and he told her that Navarro's mother, Derina, so my paternal grandmother, was still going strong at 28! That is a grand old age for a draft horse!

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: The other day, I went up to #1 and told her her that it had been far too long since she had given me a proper brushing. so she immediately went to get the Zoom Groom.

That was very, very nice! As it has been getting colder, I thought I would try the comfy seating on the radiator in the living room.

I am not sure what I was doing with my tongue!

I have also been revisiting the hammock on the study radiator:

You remember how last week, we told you about the awful theft of the beautiful cat that was on my Beebs' tomb? #1 has been searching for something to put there and, so far, she has not found anything she likes enough. So, in the meantime, this is what she found:

Manly Monday

Ollie: I have some fun photos to share with you that Mr. G took with his new camera:

And this one, which #1 took:

I guess you could call them before and after shots!

Genji: #1 says this photo is funny because my eyes are the same colour as the sunpuddle behind me!

 As you can see, I love to sit and nap on my blue Peggy's Blankie:

Vidock: Apparently, rumour has it that I am on the muddy side at the moment, but what I say is that no amount of mud can take away from my handsomeness!

Have a great week, EveryFriend!

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: It's getting colder, Christmas is approaching and we are getting snugglier! #1 is constantly amazed by how much snuggling I have been doing with Ollie, remembering what things were like when he first arrived. We have definitely made progress!

Ollie loves to snuggle with #1 in bed in the mornings:


Da Genj has of course been true to himself:

Little Ollie was kicked (not badly, thank goodness) by a horse he got too close to earlier this week (not the Vs!), and he sought refuge in what he considers his safest place:

It's not the best pic, but here is one of #1 with Violette:


We don't have one with the Big V this week, but we wanted to share this cute photo with you. This is #1's friend, Robert Sampson (Sampson Percheron Horses - where The Big V spent his time in England) snuggling with two colts he bought at the foal sale yesterday. They are half brothers.

Saturday Slip

#1 here. My apologies for the lack of a proper post today. I had to leave very early to attend a foal sale where I was helping some English friends buy several colts, and I got back late, so I didn't have time. But here are a few pics from the sale!

These two guys have gone off to join Sampson Percheron Horses in Hampshire!

Family Friday

Genji: #1 says that Thanksgiving in the Unites States is very much a family holiday. We do not have Thanksgiving here in France, but we also think that family is very important.

It took quite a bit of time, but Tama and Ollie really are family now, and they often hang out together:

They eve take naps together!

I of course was the first to hang out with Ollie, and I still do!

And I also hang out with Queen Tama!

Hotesse and Heloise of course spend most of their time together, and we hope that they will soon be able to hang out with Violette as well!
