Vidock and Violette Vendredi

Vidock: Studly Neighs, Friends Everywhere! How are you all? Are your humans still sane less than a week before Chrishorse? I am doing GREAT! I am out of jail and back in my field, and I have been working with great application. I think my teacher really likes me. This afternoon, he spent a long time explaining to #1 how utterly beautiful my head was!!! Of course, she already knew that, but in case any of you are in any doubt, here it is:

Here I am at work:

And here is a fun photo of me working on my canter with Mr.C (he's the owner of the place I am stabled at):

I lost a shoe yesterday. The farrier needs to come soon to trim my hooves and re-shoe me. I thought you might like an idea of the size of my feet, though. Here is the shoe I lost and #1's hand:

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Dear Friends! Do you know what you're getting for Christmas? I suspect I shall be getting something...purple!!! Oh, and #1 has been in discussions about my next big outing! It's not until the end of May but it will be at the big medieval festival in our town! We are both very excited about it!

In the interim, I am always very excited at the prospect of my treat bucket!

#1 says it's really cute the way I always go straight up to the barrier when I see her coming, and almost stick my head in my head collar! But I know what's coming. A good groom and then a treat bucket. That's the life!

The other day, #1 took some close-ups, starting with my back. She says I just have the most beautiful back…

And then she took this close-up of my eye. She says I have loveliest eyelashes…

Have a great weekend, Every Friend!

  5. Wow Vidock, the only one of your feet is almost so big as a single kitty ! You're really impressive when you're working on the ring. Impressive, so are too the beautiful long eyelashes of Violette. Purrs

  6. Violette, I know a lot of female humans that would be envious of your long eyelashes!

  7. What beautiful eyelashes. I am jealous! Could we see a video of you galloping

  8. It's good to know you are out of jail Vidock. You do have a handsome head.
    You have lovely eyelashes Violette. Treats are always welcome whether they be in a bucket or a packet. I think I prefer the treats in a packet though.

  9. Vidock, I knew you would win them over and yes indeed, you have a handsome head. Well set and just so powerful looking as well as studly handsomeness! Violette I recall mom and I commented on those gorgeous lashes a few blogs ago. Now that we see them close up..oh my goodness! WHAT a beautiful girl you are!!

  10. Vidock, you are so very handsome and manly - we love watching you work on your training. And Violette, so pretty you are. Bet you will be all decked out in your finery for that medieval festival.
