New Year's Eve - The Year in Review

This is it. The last day of 2013 and we thought it would be fun to repeat what we did last year which is looking back at the year and choosing a photo/event of note a month.

In JANUARY, we had a fairly big snowfall and Tommy had a great time playing in the white stuff!

In FEBRUARY, The Chans enjoyed exceptional Squirrel TV as our little buddy Rusty started coming around regularly to collect walnuts:

At the end of MARCH, Shining Prince Genji celebrated his second birthday!

In APRIL, Da Beebs was very naughty and caught a bird who did not survive the experience:

In MAY, #1 rode Violette for the first time!

and Vidock celebrated his fourth birthday with a wild gallop around his field (Violette also turned four in May):

In JUNE, Sei-Chan spent a lot of time supervising our squirrel babies!

In JULY, #1 was away in Prince Edward Island all month and Tama-Chan spent a lot of time in her hammock in the cat run:

In AUGUST, Violette appeared at her very first big public event and was good as gold!

In SEPTEMBER, Tommy finally got rid of the T-Shirt he had to wear for such a long time, after his operation and the all-clear on the lab results!

In OCTOBER, Da Beebs enjoyed spending some autumn sunshine days in the cat run:

In NOVEMBER, The Big V, Vidock, moved to his new digs and started lessons with a riding master:

And in DECEMBER, Sei-Chan enjoyed the Christmas spirit in any and all available sunpuddles!

Wishing you all a Very Happy New Year's Eve. See you next year!

PS: Sweet Violette is happily settled into her new home. "First contact" with the Arab mares she is sharing the pasture with (and one Percheron mare) was rather peaceful:

  6. What a year it was! Love to see your
    #1 riding Violette. A wave of joy came over us when we saw Violette standing on green grass! She's
    such a dear, she'll make friends in a
    snap. We love when a year ends

    May God bless you.

  10. Une très agréable idée à regarder que de faire une rétrospective de l'année.
    Ca me fait tout particulièrement plaisir de voir Violette ailleurs que dans un champs de boue.
    Bon Réveillon.
    A l'année prochaine.

  11. Those are wonderful 'look back' at 2013 photos.

    We hope 2014 will be the best yet! We send good wishes to Violette on settling into her new home and good news that she will keep in touch.

    Happy New Year!

  12. Loved to watch your look-back photos ♡
    Wish all of you a Happy Happy New Year !!

  13. A good look back at the year. My human isn't smart enough to consider doing that. Heck,she can't remember the beginning of the month much less the beginning of the year!

  14. That was a nice way to remember great posts this year. Glad that Violette traveled well to her new living quarters - hoping she continues to settle peacefully with the other horses. Wishing you all a wonderful 2014!

  15. We remember all those special events. We are especially happy that Tommy's wound healed finally. We hope you have at least as many wonderful times in 2014.

    Happy New Year and all the best in 2014.
