Wednesday Whinnies!

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! I have had a busy week! After the dentist came early last week, the vet, Dr. R (Dr. C's husband!) came to see me on Saturday morning to give me my rhinopneumonitis booster and take a look at a sarcoid I have on one of my inner back legs. The treatment was in fact simple: he tied an elastic band tightly around it and it should fall off of its own accord!

I was a really good girl for the vet and #1 took this pretty cute picture of me afterwards, as I was having my snack:

Then the weather improved a bit for a couple of days, so #1 rode me again!

She had to be a little bit careful as I am what they call "in heat" at the moment so I am pretty ticklish! But we really enjoy stepping out together!

Vidock: One of these days, #1 is going to get on MY back, but I apparently need to learn a little more in the way of manners first... What could they possibly mean?

In the meantime, there are some yummy snacks for me to enjoy in the field!

I tell you! There's nothing like a fresh leaf or ten!

And how about this "Greek God" effect?

Or my famous "Mona lisa" smile?????


  1. Violette, we think that pic of you while having your snack is too cute!! What a pretty girl you are :)
    Vidock, you are as handsome as ever and we also think "greek god" ;)
    Have a fun day with #1!!
    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,

  2. Violette, will you become a mama one day?

    Vidock, I thik you would be thrilled to carry #1 so I hope you learn your manners like a good boy. #1 looks great atop Violette and we would like to see her atop you as well. xox

  3. I'm partial to the "Greek God" affect myself!

  4. Number 1, you must be the luckiest lady in the world! What a fabulous life you lead, gorgeous horses, beautiful kitties and a sweet pup. I live vicariously through you as I sit in the damp Maine spring! Enjoy!

  5. You know what my mother always said, Vidock? "Mind your manners and mind your Mother... if you know what's good for you!


    Have a perfectly lovely day, everybuddy!

  6. You make a great Greek God Vidock and we hope you enjoyed your leafy snack. Hope you get a chance to take #1 out on another ride soon Violette before the rain comes back for an encore.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  11. Vidock tu es absolument magnifique...
    De profil tu es impressionnant, royal. Et j'adore la jolie tache rose sur le bout du nez...
    J'espère que Violette et toi vous allez enfin pouvoir avoir un terrain sec.

  12. Violette, we are sure that rhino whatever shot is not as bad as its name sounds and we are glad that #1 takes such good care of you.

    Vidock, you handsome dude, we just know that one day we are going to see portraits of you hanging in Le Louvre.

  13. You are both gorgeous and such good posers! M wants to hug both of you.

  14. We are filled with envy that the vet comes to you, Violette!

    Wait...that didn't sound vet is the best! But you know what we mean.

    Both of you are simply stunning. Vidock, you mind your P's and Q's and soon you can out go and explore the countryside with #1.

  15. You are such a cutie, Violette, and it looks like you are doing a great job riding with #1! Don't worry, Vidock, you will get a chance eventually!

  16. You two V's are show stoppers!

    And yes, Vidock... you really should have a laurel wreath for you brow! That look works for you!
