Violette and Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Every Friend! Do you remember me? I have been keeping a low profile recently as The Big V has been hogging the limelight with his fancy schoolwork! But I am doing well and enjoying a bit of a rest and socialising with all my friends over here. You know, there is nothing more conducive to good conversation than a fresh bale of hay!

But as soon as I hear #1, I go over and say hello to her. If it is too muddy and she cannot bring me out for a groom, then she brings me apples and carrots and gives them to me when nobody else is looking. We wouldn't want the others to get jealous, would we?!

OK, I shall now turn the keyboard over to The Big V who is leading such an exciting life at the moment!

Vidock: Studly and Scholarly Neighs, Buddies far and wide! I have now been in my new place for a week and I have already progressed in leaps and bounds!

Mr. JJR likes to start our work by lunging me:

I even went over a tiny jump the other day!

And then he rides me. He says that my stride has improved dramatically already!

After I'm done working and I have been rubbed down, #1 takes me back to my paddock and then brings me my treat bucket!

As you can see, I have a nice shelter in my paddock. #1 tried it out and saw that it really keeps out the wind and is nice and dry inside, even when it is raining hard. Because I am working so hard, I am already getting extra grain rations, and #1 is bringing me some supplements. I am being very well looked after!


  1. Violette, we are glad you have friends to talk and share gossip with ;) You are as lovely as ever too.
    Vidock, you are working hard! Bet that does give you a good appetite.
    Makes you look handsome too :)

  7. Everyone is looking really well. Looks like the training is going well for Vidock. And Violette looks all happy relaxing with the ladies. Take care.

  8. Tu es un peu ... boueuse Violette ! C'est ça la vie d'extérieur. Ca fait du bien les conversations entre amies. C'est important la vie sociale pour une "petite" jument.
    Vidock n'a pas le même genre de vie sociale, mais il a l'air entre de bonnes mais.
    La vie est belle en somme.....
    Un bon week end. Sec ça serait pas mal.

  9. It is nice to have some girl talk over a nice bale of hay with your friends Violette.
    That is a nice field shelter to keep the rain off your back Vidock. You look as though you are enjoying your schooling.

  10. Vidock, you really have been working hard! Enjoy your extra noms.

    And Violette, at least you have some furiends to keep you company while you eat.

  11. You are really looking very well Vidock. We can see that you are having a good and fun time at school. What do you talk about Violette? We cats are very curious to know.

  12. Mum sees those types of shelters in horse fields here too. If you are working hard, you need to eat good.

  13. So good to hear from you V's!

    Violette - you are truly a beauty and stand out from the rest of the girls!

    Vidock- we're glad you are doing great and are being well looked after. Looking handsome!
