Manly Monday!

Whaaaaaa? It's Monday? Manly Monday? But I''m not awake yet and I think it should be Mellow Monday instead...

To follow on from Sleepy Sunday...

And Snoozy Saturday...

Life is just so delightful at the moment!!!!

Tom: Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. I have a great adventure to tell you about! Last Thursday, #1 was invited by a friend who runs the Ecomusée du Perche to come and see a farrier demonstrating the shoeing of a Percheron for an elementary school class, and I, Tommy, was invited too!

I supervised as he talked about what he was going to do:

And then I got to hang out with the kids who were GREAT!

And Lobo, the Percheron who was being shod, was a pretty cool dude too!

Vidock: I have to tell you that, I, personally, am not a great fan of farriersat this stage, but maybe that will change. Perhaps I need to meditate on the subject...

Viking, Apollon and I were moved to a new field on Thursday and we have been having fun thundering around it!

Notice who is out in front both time?!

Have a great week everyone!

PS: #1 was very touched by all the nice notes from our English friends asking if she would be in their vicinity so she might visit. She does not think that will be the case, as she will be mostly around High Wycombe, but if any of you are close to there, please give a shout!


  1. Bibi, I could believe I saw you nap in the drier !!!!
    Is that for real ? : )

  2. OH I just love looking at those pictures of the horsies!

  3. Wow Tommy it's even cooler you got to go along. And yes it seems more like manly go back to sleep Monday

  4. Super fun getting to play with all those little kids Tommy. Bet they just all loved you. Vidock - if having the farrier is like having our toenails clipped we can see why you are not crazy about it. Much better to just run around the field with your pals.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  5. I love seeing the horsies too..and Tommy, you were the best one to go to supervise. You did a wonderful job and you got to be petted by the children. :-)

  6. A very manly Monday at your place. Tommy looks like he stole the show from Lobo at the elementary school.

  7. We love your pictures Bibi especially the one in the lovely sunshine. Tom what a great adventure you had with all those children and watching the horse have a new shoe fitting.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  8. We like Mellow Monday, but then we saw all the thundering around the field and we quite like that too.......

  9. Ah yes, I love a good Monday nap (no disturbances). Vidock you are looking great in that field!

  10. We missed visiting for all the snuggles yesterday but we see you all did quite well.

    We agree with Bibi - Mondays are very mellow. With the cloudy/stormy/humid weather here, we are all snoozing inside.

    How lucky for Tommy to get to go to school. And it is always so much fun to watch Vidock and his pals running in the fields.

    Have a great week and we hope #1's travels go well.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  11. Bibi, you are a good napper, Tom, a great educator, and Vidock, a wonderful galloper!

  12. Its lovely to see how the little children love you Tomy and plain to see that you love them too.. Hugs GJ x

  13. Mellow Monday, we must remember that, Bibi! Tommy, you are the happiest guy we have EVER met, bar none. You get invited everywhere! Tell Vidock when you see him that we can feel his thundering hooves all the way out by us!

  14. You can be manly and mellow on a Monday at the same time.
    Tommy, you look like you are having a great time and so do the horses again. Great pics!

  15. Tommy! Are you sure you are really a dog and not an old soul, full of wisdom, come back to teach love and peace. No matter where you are , you seem to belong and have a
    Sense of centeredness. There is something very special about you, we feel it.
    That Vidock is one gorgeous boy! And those feet, always dancing. Have fun in your lovely new pasture, sweet friends.
    And we all bow to the boy king Beebs!

  16. I think that is so great that so many kitties' humans wanted yours to visit while she is in England! This is such a special blogging community!

  17. Ooh, be careful in the dryer!

    Wonderful pictures today, I wanted to be in the middle of each one.

  18. Vidock,
    I don't like shoes either. On the other hand, a nice pedicure might actually feel good.
