Violette and Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs Everyone! I hope you have had a lovely week and will have an even lovelier weekend. I have been very, very busy, although The Big V and I are still waiting for our mani/pedi and new shoes.

As I can't do anything much due to the shoe situation, Mr. L thought he would see how I reacted to having a proper work collar on:

Maybe I should explain that, in French, "collier" also means "necklace" and all girls love necklaces, right?

Yep, I took it all "in my stride"!

Then, yesterday, a nice young man came over and pushed and pulled and prodded me in all directions. He is called an osteopath. #1 said it would be good to check me over and see if I had anything a little pinched or out of alignment.

He was very friendly right from the start!

His hands felt great on my back!

But YIKES! Look what he did to my hind legs!

I did feel great afterwards, and he admired my trot and said I was beautiful!

Vidock: No Osteo-Guy for me! I am just perfect, apparently! Well, for the moment, anyway... But I did get another visit from Dr. R!

Ms. C put on my head collar for the occasion:

I played it cool as Dr. R was preparing whatever it was...

It was one of those stabby thingies!

I was of course a very good boy. And in case you were wondering, he came twice this year because both Violette and I got vaccinations for rhino-pneumonitis too this year, in addition to the usual equine flu and tetanus. So we needed the initial shot, followed by a booster a month later.

Your favourite stud over and out!


  1. Lovely necklace Violette!
    We bet it felt good having that nice looking man work all over your body too ;)
    Vidock, you are SO handsome. Good that you are protected even if you had to have the stabby thing!

  2. It's great to see both of you! Better to have your shots and be stabbed with a need than to get sick. We knew both of you would behave well.
    Have a great weekend!
    Pee Ess - about that "necklace": maybe #1 could get you a purple one!

  3. Love seeing how marvelous you both are doing since becoming members of Le Poupounette!!

  4. You two just make my day shine, V's!! And mommy still says the osteopath is handsome!

  5. You certainly had a lot of visitors this week. Have a great weekend.

  6. I love Fridays with Violette and Vidock!

  7. Violette you look great in your new "necklace". You both are looking great.


  8. Violette, c'est un peu bizarre les osteos parfois, mais après on se sent tellement mieux. Ma petite jument elle en avait un qui ne tire pas sur les membres. Il faisait et fait toujours de l'osteo énergétique.
    Tu as toujours autant l'air d'une jument bien sage et qui veut faire plaisir.
    Profites bien du doux soleil d'automne Vidock. Bientôt tu vas ressembler à un nounours plein de poils et c'est beaucoup moins joli à regarder....

  9. You are both so good and getting stabbed is so better than being sick. That work out from the doctor looed so good. Have a great weekend. Hugs GJ x

  10. Now you are both prepped and ready for action!! :p

    the critters in the cottage xo

  11. Your new necklace looks good on you Violette. You are both very good to have anything done.

  12. Both of you are just so stunning! It is a pleasure to see you every Friday.

  13. Violette and Vidock, we always love seeing you two! So you hafta get the stabby thing too!

  14. Shoes, shots and necklaces. Sounds like you had a good week.

  15. It's good to hear the human appreciates you both properly.

  16. Awesome photos! Thanks!
