Vidock and Violette Vendredi

Vidock: Neeeeighs?????? It's already Friday? Were has the week gone? What have you all been up to? I have done….nothing other than eat, sleep and romp in my field! And share the occasional cuddle with #1. Oh, and I mentioned it on Monday, but I also had those great visitors from California. That was fun!

#1 is always looking after me, and here is a photo of her scraping bot eggs off my leg. Those nasty flies lay yellow eggs on our legs. If they are left to hatch, they can cause pain and irritation, so #1 spends time removing as many as she can with a special knife:

And here s a mice pic of me walking along whilst having a chat with Mr. C, Da Boss over where I live. Mr. C told #1 that I was a very good boy and didn't really need to have my headcollar put on until I got to the gate, and I obliged!

And here I am, throwing a nice tail swish as I posed for #1 next to my water container:

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! Do you like my latest portrait?

I got my bot eggs scraped off as well although #1 says they are a lot harder to see on me given that I have a white coat and the eggs are yellow. I also got a new hoof shine:

And I would just like to say that I do NOT think I have a big bum!


  1. You have the right sized bump Violette. Just nice for you. Vidock you seem to have a very good life full of things to do. Bit flies sound nasty.

  2. Vidock, sometimes it's nice to have a lazy week. We love your tail swish!
    Violette, you are beautiful and we like those shiny hooves :)
    You have a nice bum and a pretty tail too ;)

  3. Nice seeing you both! Those bot eggs sound gross! Did you know I caught my first fly - and ate it the other day? I bet I could make quick work of those flies that laid eggs on you!

  4. Tail Swish ! That's soooooo cool
    Vidock, Could you please teach me ????

  5. We love your tail swish Vidock ! Violette, you're beautiful, and your bum is purrfect ! Pretty shiny hooves ! Purrs

  6. Vidock those bot flies sound gross so we hope #1 got most of them off for you. Violette we needed to turn away as your hoof shine is so bright we started to squint.

  7. Both of you look really good. Looks like you sure are getting good care. Happy Friday to all of you.

  8. Your Feets look beautiful

  9. We are always so happy to see you two! You both look so Royal!

  10. Violette tu as une ravissante toute dodue double d'étranges sabots striés !
    Pas drole ces histoires de mouches. Une calamité.
    Bon week end

  11. Vidock and Violette, #1 is taking such good care of you with bot egg and everything!
    Violette, I think your bum is beautiful :-)

  12. You have a lovely bum Violette.
    Those bot flies are horrible. They make the horses here gallop around when they are trying to lay their eggs. I have to be careful not to go in their fields when they do that.

  13. We have never heard of those bot eggs, that must be an annoying task for #1 and a big pain for you two. Are they seasonal or are they around all the time?

    Have a great weekend.

  14. It is nice to have a week of nothing to do. Mum wishes she could have a week like that.

  15. Violette - you do not have a big bum. You are just gorgeous and Vidock is handsome. Thank goodness for #1 scraping away those pesky fly eggs. They sound nasty.

  16. You two are looking good. Good thing #1 is there to get those nasty fly eggs off.

  17. Miss Violette you are beautiful :)

  18. V's, you are both the MOST handsome horses mom as well as me have ever seen. I didn't know those nasty eggs got on your legs and I am so glad you both get the attention you need all of the time, every time. Never failing.
