Thundering and Thankful Thursday

: Neigh everyone! Yesterday, Viking and I got put in our "half-way" paddock before we go out to full summer pasture this weekend. It was cause for thundering celebration!

I also got to see my Daddy, Orgueil, as he is in the next field!

And #1 and I had a photoshoot! I think we look great together, don't you?

#1 here. Vidock is really getting to be big and so handsome (I am not biased or anything...). Spring went away for a day or two and it got really cold, but we are all thankful that it is sunny and warmer again today. Here is some garden beauty for you:

Our apple tree in full bloom:

Our second (still small) cherry tree:

One of our oak trees in bloom:

and lots of lovely little wildflowers

We are also thankful that the news is a little bit better from Ginger Jasper and Admiral Hestorb, and that Sweet Praline has been holding her own.

PSssssssssssssstttttttttttttttt! The Beebs here. Guess who got the hammock this morning?!

Thankful, Thankful!


  1. We are thankful woo shared all those wondrous things!

    PeeEssWoo: Hi Tommy! I'm on the patio waiting fur the sunrise!

  2. When you got it, flaunt it. Looking good, big guy.


  3. I love what Mango said! YOU have it, Vidock! That arched la laaaa!

    The flowers are looking fantastic. Isn't Spring so worth waiting for? Bursting with new life and always happy.

    Thank you for the sweet wishes for me. And I have also been equally worried for my dear GJ and Sweet Praline.


  4. Beautiful outdoor colors! And the photoshoot was a great success. It looks like you are really enjoying your Spring!

  5. Vidock you get more handsome every time we see you. The flower and blossom pictures are very pretty and make you think of sunny skies and light nights.
    Leaving the best to last of course is the picture of Beebs looking very handsome with his stylish collar and the loveliest of blue skies and fresh green leaves as his backdrop

  6. Great pictures! I think I could sit and look at Vidock all day....what a beautiful horse!

  7. We saw your pictures and decided we would go thundering around the catio chasing each other. Most excellent! Now we want some flowers and excitng plants too.

  8. Neigh good morning, Vidock! Aren't you just gorgeous! In your first photo you look so joyful! Like you are dancing on air! And so light on your feeties. Breathtaking!
    How your #1 loves you! Just look at her lovely smile and how happy she looks posing with her beautiful, elegant boy.
    Your mum and gran are very light and you dad is medium light, which side of your family does your lovely colour and marking ( mad about your "arrow") come from? Can your mum tell where, within your breed standard, you will fall in relation to your size?
    Good going, Beebs! Love you lots.

  9. Vidock you sure are a beauty. You got lots of muscles like me. Your flowers are beautiful

  12. I do not think #1 is biased at all - Vidock, you are very handsome!

  13. Such fun to see Vidock out in his element!!! He just exudes power when we look at him. Bibi- you were the run winner today for sure. Look at that pretty sky.

    Beebs, we agree , there is nothing like a good snuggle in a hammock!

  15. I am a daily reader of your family blog, but as I don't have my own I have never commented. I just have to say that Vidock is soooo handsome, the girls are gorgeous (I am partial to Sei-Chan but don't tell Tama I don't want to hurt her feelings.), Bibi is a handsome little devil and Tommy, well, Geez, I just want to kiss him!! Your life in France with your 'kids' and your and their friends just seems idyllic. Thanks for sharing your fun, loving family! :) Leora
