Woofie Wednesday

 

Ollie: Woofs, everyone! Ollie here! I had a fun time last week, with two visits to the horses! Even though my girls were not there for the first visit, I got to see the horses! And I got to enjoy all the yummy "Hoofillets" (horse hoof, the softish underside - the ultimate dog treat!) on my own!


The second time, the girls and Ms. C were there and we had a great time!





This week, I'll be going to see my girls on Friday!

Tama-Chan Tuesday

 

Tama-Chan: #1 says she can't believe were already half way through May. I am not sure what May is but it seems we're getting through it! It has gotten warmer. We have open windows, and #1 has crossed fingers that you know who doesn't demolish all the netting on them, trying to get at the lizards. I of course never cause any damage.

I do enjoy sitting at the kitchen window.



And helping #1 with her work.


A little pillow talk with #1:


Mr. G managed to snap a picture of that pipsqueak, Benny, sticking his tongue out at me behind my back!


What can you do? I just ignored him and had a nap.

Manly Monday

 

Benny: Mrrrggghhhewowwww! Benny here! How are you all? I am happy to be kicking off Manly Monday with this shot of me waiting for my morning treats. As I sleep with #1, I get treats both in the morning and at bedtime!


And here I am at the open kitchen window! There are lots of cool lizards to watch!


Ollie: #1 managed to get a flying ears shot of me in the garden!


And Mr. G took this one of me with my stuffies:


The Big V: Handsome Neighs, EveryFriend! When the farrier came to get me in teh field for my hooficure last week, #1 got this great shot of me:


And I think this head shot is quite cool.


I am in fact wearing Heloise's head collar. The farrier put mine on her and vice versa, but #1 said this one really suited me as well!

We wish you all a good week.

Super Snuggles on Sunday!

 

Tama-Chan: Hello, Dear Friends, and welcome to our weekly snuggle post! Why "super" this week? Because we have an awesome line-up of photos for you! As you know, three of the horses had birthdays this week, so #1 got lots of photos with them. I think we shall start with this lovely one of The Big V and Heloise, who is now his number one girl:


Next up is Hotesse who was looking lovelier than ever on her birthday!


Miss Violette:


The Big V:


Miss Heloise:


And an extra one of #1 with both The Big V and Heloise!


And now to the rest of us.  I have been doing my usual snuggling with #1:



And there have been mornings when all of us have been with #1 on her bed!


Mr. G and Ms. N came to visit us yesterday and he took some great pics also, such as this one of #1 and Benny:


And this is just one of a great series of pics he took of #1 and Ollie:


Thank you, Mr. G, for always taking such great pics of us with your big Nikon camera!

Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday

 

Rainbow Sei: #1 was able to access some of those old albums on her desktop and so she thought it would be fun today to do a single kitty post. And that kitty is... IKKYU, the first in a long line of Abyssinian cats bearing Japanese names!

After she moved to Chicago and then back to France, Ikkyu used to travel to Canada with #1 to spend his summers in Prince Edward Island. He loved being at the cottage!



Ikkyu was very well travelled. Aside from planes, he also travelled a couple of times in #1's car on the Eurotunnel!



But he really liked being home the most, especially when there were good sunpuddles to lie in!



Ikkyu hated almost everyone other than #1, but to her, he was the gentlest, sweetest, most affectionate boy!

Festive Friday with Hotesse, Violette and Vidock!

 

Hotesse: Wise neighs, everyone, and welcome to our festive post! Why festive? Because we have three, count them, THREE birthdays this week! I kicked off the ball on Wednesday, followed by The Big V on Thursday, and today is my daughter Violette's birthday! Isn't that fun?

Let me start with a photo taken by #1 on my birthday. She of course came to visit me and bring me treats!


You know, 27 is a grand old age for any horse, but it is particularly rare in Percherons. Just like large dogs vs small dogs, the draft breeds tend to have shorter lifespans. I guess I am lucky and have pretty good genes, eh? And you know the best thing? I am now living my golden years in a place where I am loved and well taken care of, and I would like to say a special thank you to those among our blogging friends who helped #1 make that happen three years ago. She could not saved me and my youngest daughter, Heloise without the generosity of friends. As you know, my joints are a bit creaky but, as #1 says, so are hers! I get the right medication and #1 and Ms. C say I look really good! Here is another shot of me taken a few days ago:



The Big V: Handsome Neighs, everyone! Can you believe that I am 13 years old? I still feel like a three year old! Of course, this is what I looked like when I was three:


Do you see my bro, woofie Tommy in the picture?

And this is what I look like now:


Don't you think I have improved with age?

Violette: Pretty neighs! Today is my birthday! I am also 13 today, just like The Big V. #1 tells me that I grow more beautiful with each passing year!


I look a lot like my Mama, Hotesse, except that I am bigger. You can see it in this picture, where I am on the left and mama is on the right:


I am eagerly waiting for #1 to arrive, with apples and carrots!

Thankful Thursday

 

Ollie: Yesterday morning, the farrier came to trim the horses' hooves. Ms. C was away for the day and my two girls had gone with her, but #1 took me along anyway, and I am really thankful because I got to run and run and run!



Can you see just how curly my coat is?

Tama-Chan Tuesday

 

Tama-Chan: It will be a short one today, Dear Friends. #1 left early this morning to take the train to Paris. She has an appointment with her eye surgeon. She was supposed to see him on April 6th but that became impossible. Let's see what he says about her eyes. She will then meet a friend for lunch, and do a bit of shopping before returning late afternoon.

Here is a nice photo of me relaxing in my favourite scratcher in a sunpuddle. Can you see Ollie behind me?


We have had a lot of sunshine lately. I quite like this one too although I think my paw looks a bit dusty.


And relaxing on the kitchen chair:


That's all I have time for. Have a good Tuesday!

Manly Monday

 

Ollie: Woofs everyone! Have you heard the expression "I'm in clover"? Because that would describe me to a tee at the moment!!!


Benny: I have a Benny dangle for you today. Should I call them Bangles, do you think?


The Big V: As you know, my girlfriend, Aral, moved away (we got news of her and she is doing well), but I still have pretty young Heloise to keep me company!


We wish you all a very good week!
