Phew! The Savannah and An Award!

Tom: Poor #1 has been trying to make it up to both me and Sen-Chan for her absence, but things stayed crazy until this afternoon. She keeps saying that she never thought she would one day be a kind of "Percheron Pimp" but her South-African visitors did buy a stallion and will probably be buying a mare that we went to see again this morning. In the meantime, my activity was severely curtailed until just after lunch today when I finally got in a proper romp in the fields. And look who came too!

Sen-Chan: After two weeks of beautiful weather, it's supposed to start raining tomorrow and be wet the rest of the week, so #1 decided to give me a treat and let me out! Hunting season began in France yesterday so she stuck close to me the whole time in case a bad man with a rifle thought I was a hare or fox. I went to the little field behind the house with Tom, and we then went into the big field, the one with all that tall grass. It felt like a real expedition!

I was glad to see I still had my ability to leap!

And stopped to admire some of the still-blooming flowers

But what I like doing best is lurking in the tall grass

Finally today, we would like to thank our friend HUGO for another great award! You're a pal, Hugo!


  1. Wow, It's a good thing your mom was with you..I'd hate for you to be taken for one of those other critters! It sure looks fun out in your Savannah, guys!

  2. Congrats on your award! Looks like you had a lot of fun romping around the field, Sen-Chan. Maybe #1 can find you a mini orange hunting vest so that the hunters don't mistake you for something else.

  3. I am always so amazed to see Sen-Chan frolicking in the fields with you, Tom!

  4. You two looked like you had a great time out in the field. In the US we have to wear blaze orange when we are out during hunting season. Stay safe.

    Your friend,

  5. I'd be askeered of the hunters its good you had #1 with you. We just looked at all of the beautiful horse pictures! Our horse was an ex-race horse so she's much smaller. The LL says watch out...horses are addictive ;).


  6. Hello friends!

    We think both of you look gorgeous in the field, especially Sen-Chan now that the grasses come closer to matching his coat-colors.

    We will not be able to blog for a few days, but we will be able to look at YOUR blog, we are ha[[y to say. And we are really going to miss Ms. C. In response to her absence, we have pledged to drive Mr. R absolutely bonkers.

    Abby & Stygia

  7. That is wonderful,
    having good walking weather before rainy day~!!!
    Have good fun!!!!!

  8. Ooh that long grass looks like loads of fun, just make sure you're not mistaken for anything but my gorgeous boyfriend ok! :)

    Purr and kitty kisses,

  9. Those are lovely pictures. You are so lucky to have such pretty field to play in. Congratulations on your award.
