Vidock and Violette Vendredi

Vidock: Studly Neighs, Every Friend! Hope you've had a good week. We haven't seen as much of #1 as usual as she has been busy with various things, but maybe she will come and see us today.

Here is a nice photo taken by a nice lady who visited us, Ms. E:

I have been working on my "mud caking" as I hear it's very good for the complexion...

Oh, and here is some fun news: Remember the Dragon's Loyalty Award the Chans received yesterday? well, I received one of my very own from my kitty pal, Savannah!

I am supposed to tell you seven interesting things about myself. Let me see...

1- Even though we often get a bad rap, I am a truly gentle stallion
2- I love cuddles and #1 often finds it difficult to take photos of me because I am always right next to her
3- My grandfather on my daddy's side came from America! He was called Silver Shadows Sheik
4- I am approved for breeding within the French Percheron Stud Book
5- I love both apples and carrots, and treats too! My favourite treats come from a store in the States called Tractor Supply!
6- I have my very own big red jolly ball to kick around my paddock
7- My bestest friend as I was growing up, and until I came here, was my half brother (Big) Tom. I miss him, although #1 goes to see him occasionally

Thanks, Savvy, for thinking of me!

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! Some of my friends and I had a bit of an adventure earlier this week! We broke through the fence and went into the neighbour's corn field! Ms. C and Mr. L were not pleased at all, even though we came right back out as soon as were called! I am right at the back of this picture:

When Ms. N slapped the head collar on me, I thought I was going to jail, but she just brought me out so that #1 could give me a good grooming. 

That was such a relief!

We were very saddened to read this morning that our pal Benny of Two French Bulldogs lost his fight with the Evil C yesterday. He fought really hard but he just got too tired in the end. We send our deepest condolences to his Mom, Andrea, and his sister Lily. We'll miss you, Benny!


  1. Vidock, we love the red in your mane. Bet it is fun to play in the mud too ;)
    We liked your 7 things.
    Violette, we know that you are a good horse at heart.
    You look lovely all groomed too :)

  2. Great pictures of the two horses. Bet they all had fun with the break out. Have a great day.

  3. We love horsies over here so always enjoy a feature about them. Bet the break out was scary for the humans tho.

  4. waving from the states!!! we love seeing you two.....

  5. The Baby would like some French mud, please...she must be a stallion in her mind!

  6. Congratulations on your award, Vidock! Violette, that sounds like a cool adventure - a girl needs to cause a little trouble now and then!

  7. Ben alors Violette, on prend la poudre d'escampette avec les copines.. pas très sérieux ça quand même !
    Vidock est de plus en plus foncé et toujours aussi beau, même plein de boue!
    Bon week end.

  8. Vidock, I love the close up photo of you very much. You look so handsome! Violette, sounds like you had fun adventure. Glad you were not going to the jail :-)

  9. Oh Violette you are a bunch of naughty girls.

    Millie & Walter

  10. It's so good to see both of you today. Congrats on your own award, Vidock!

  11. A mud bath is excellent for the complexion, studly Vidock!

    It's great to see both of you studly and pretty horses!

  12. We are sorry about your friend who had gone to the Bridge. You are both looking lovely and mud is really good for the skin we hear.

  13. Wow, Vidock! I looked up Silver Shadows Sheik and it is very cool he was your Grandfather! No wonder you are such a great stallion.
    Dear Violette, I am so glad you and the other mares are safe! Oh my! That must have been a shock for the humans who care for you!
    Blessings upon you,
    Lily, WA, USA

  14. Great pictures ! "Girls just wanna have fun" said a song, it appears that Violette already heard it ;) Purrs

  15. Uh Oh looks as though you are getting the bad reputation Vidock has so eloquently evaded! I wonder whose idea it was to charge through the fence over to the corn low voices...stick with whoever that was Violette... that way, you'll continue to have lots of fun!! Mwahahahahahaha.:p
