Violette and Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! It seems like such a long time since we neighed! I hope you are all keeping well. I am fine but #1 feels bad about my deep cover of mud. You see, this is my  "clean" side:

I wil not even show you the other side. # 1 says it's quite shocking. And I am getting my nails done today - #1 says she wonders if the farrier is even going to be able to locate my hooves... It has been raining pretty much non-stop for several days, although the sun is actually shining today for a change.

My other news is that the vet came to give all us girls our shots. Last year, I got a tad aggressive when he came into the field and everyone gathered around him (I thought he had treats). So, this year, #1 took me out and I got my shot and then I got my treat bucket. Neighs!

OK, I guess we could also call this Fun Friday, so I will share a fun photo with you. #1 says I am really good at pulling funny faces. In this one, she says I look like a cross between a camel and a nanny-goat:

#1 tells me she has been discussing my education and guess what? I am going to be going to school soon! There is a very nice gentleman who normally rides Lusitanians and specialises in a Spanish riding style called Doma Vaquero, and he has agreed to work with me! #1 says I am going to be utterly magnificent and of course I believe her. He has gone off on vacation but will be back soon so we wil start the second week in March. Stay tuned!

I shall leave you with this rather nice photoof my Mama and my little brother:

Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend. Violette is right. It has been wet and muddy. It doesn't show quite as much on my dappled coat but #1 keeps saying how much she would like me to dry off a bit so she can brush me. Can you see the mud?

I don't have any really exciting photos to show you. It's the same old thing of me coming over as soon as I see #1:

She does like to take close-up shots:


  1. Does all that mud bother you two... or do you actually enjoy it?

  2. Sometimes it is exiting to be muddy but not for a cat, at least for me ;) You are gorgeous Violette, even with mud. Purrs!

  3. a little mud never hurt anyone (or so we hear....not that we want to try it or anything)

  4. Its been furry muddy here too, but not because of rain, but the snow melt. There is a field of horses that Mommy and Daddy drives past and they is all is furry muddy too! But none of them is as gorgeous as yous guys is! Vidock yous is especially studly today!

  5. Violette! I am excited that you are going to school. Now be nice to the farrier please. Show your ladylike side. (not the muddy one) Heeee. xox

  6. A school girl - that is pawsome. I loved your funny picture. You look like someone told you a funny joke and you are hee hawing.

  7. We always enjoy seeing you and we hope the mud was super fun!!!

  8. Muddy or not, you are both still beautiful. We must say, however, that that funny face shot of Violette made us laugh out loud:)

    Happy weekend.

  9. Violette, you may be muddy in that shot, but we think you look beautiful in that first picture! How exciting that you will be going to school this spring!

  10. You have a cute moustache Violette. That is exciting that you will be going to school.
    The hoses here are very muddy too. They are stabled at night, but as soon as mum turns them out in the mornings they find the muddiest places near the gates to roll.

    P.S. What's a little mud between friends?! ;)

  14. I bet you both like the mud. I don't go outside to get into stuff like that.

    Looking forward to Violette's education.

  15. We would love to roll in the mud, but the mom would never let us. Good luck at school, Violette.

  16. You both remain beautiful, even with mud ! How exciting Violette : we're looking forward to seeing what you're going to learn at school ! Purrs
