Tommy Thursday

Tommy: None of us can quite believe that #1 is gone again. She did not look happy at all, to be honest, and just said that she had to go and that things should be much better as from next week. Paws crossed.

In the meantime, she tried really hard to take me on some fund adventures earlier this week. We went for a nice walk to a place we hadn't been to in a couple of years at least!

And we also went for a walk in the woods with the Big V!

And here is a photo in my own field!

I can't wait for #1 to be back so we can go on more adventures!

Wednesday Whinnies

Vidock: So... I am staring work again, gently of course as I am a delicate boy, right? Neeeeeighs! Seriously, I have been off work for a while now, so I am pretty out of shape.

Tacked up and ready to go:

A little light work in the ring first:

And then off to the woods!

It's nice out in the woods and floppy ears Tommy comes along too!

And a nice cool drink of water when I get back:

Violette: Just hanging with the girls!

By the way, #1 has gone off again! She will be back again on Friday afternoon, and then away again Saturday and Sunday. We have no words...

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Yesterday was a weird day. #1 was supposed to be home but she ended up going all over creation, first taking Genji to the vet, then taking the car to the vet (some filters need changing), then taking Tommy for a walk (his first "proper" walk in days). It was all quite exhausting!

Evening relaxation:

When #1 came back from England, I had to supervise the unpacking of the stash:

And the bedroom also needs supervising on an ongoing basis:

I thought I would also share this family shot with you. Here I am, next to #1, with Da Genj on her, and Tommy on his sofa:

I love it when we are all together. 

PS: Thanks for all the nice comments about Genji yesterday. His appette seems to have returned!

Manly Monday - With Genji Update

Genji: Mee-Yow, everyone. It's me, Genji. Could I ask you for a few purrs, please? I have been rather off-color ever since #1 came home on Saturday, eating very little, and she is worried about me. She says I may have to go to Dr. C's if I don't start eating properly again. So, I could use some positive energy!

Da Beebs: I second that. I don't like when my bro isn't 100%.

Tommy: Me too. Feel better soon, little bro.

Vidock: Neighs from me as well.

 We'll keep you posted.


#1 here. We are just back from the vet. Genji's temperature was normal and other vital signs looked fine. It seems he has a bad sore throat, and she put him on a broad spectrum antibiotic to get rid of it. He also got an appetite stimulant. He did have a little food when he got home, and his appetite should be back to normal by this evening. Paws crossed.

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: #1 is back! She got back right on time yesterday and even though she wasn't gone long, she managed to fill up the car in her usual style!

There was stuff for everyone, including carrots and apples for the Vs and seed and suet treats for the birdies outside! 

With her being gone a good chunk of the week, we were not able to get a full complement of snuggle shots but we tried! Here I am first, with my Tommy:

Sei-Chan managed to get in some snuggling with #1 in bed before she left:

And she always manages to snuggle with Tommy!

Da Genj is also pretty adept at pinning down #1:

My Beebs is no slacker either. He got #1 yesterday evening!

 No snuggle shots with the Vs this week. We will try to do better next week.

Sei-Chan This, Dear Friends, is where I shall be spending my morning today, awaiting #1's return. This beddie is located on the landing of the upper floor and from here, I have a direct view down onto the front door!

She said she would be back around noon, All paws crossed.

Violette Vendredi

Violette: Pretty neighs, everyone! There have already been two horsey posts in a row this week but you may have noticed that neither involved me, so this is third time lucky for me! I have just one photo to share with you today, but it's a nice one!

Here I am, in the sunshine, in my beautiful field:

Tomorrow is Saturday, and #1 is coming back!

Thundering Thursday!

#1 here, coming to you from the New Forest, in England. I am here for the annual New Forest Beer Run heavy horse competition organised by the British Heavy Horse Driving Trials Club, and thought I would share a few photos from today's relay race.

I also got to meet this gorgeous Sibe girl:

Her name is Skye, and she was rescued from some awful drug den in London by very nice people who absolutely adore her. She is the sweetest girl!

Wednesday Whinnies with Vidock

Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend. I promised you more details of my check-up visit, so here I am. But first, I would like to thank all those who left such kind messages following my update on Monday. I was very touched!

We left before 9am on Monday morning for the 2-hour drive to the equine hospital. Mr. JP was nice and let me have some sweet grass on my way to the horse trailer:

It was all business when we got there.

I'm all good, right Dr.Veterinarian?

What? No! NO! What is that thing around my nose? And that thing up my nostril? 

And what was the vet doing? She was playing with her phone and watching movies!

She explained to #1 that she was looking for something very particular, and this was it:

That, Dear Friends, is the image that showed that the flap on my larynx that had been tied back was perfectly in place and that everything had healed beautifully! 

I was liberated and the vet saw me on my way, telling #1 that I should be all good (I knew that!).


It was so good to be back home!

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Well, she's gone again, #1. Left early this morning, promising to be back by lunchtime on Saturday. Mr. G will be looking after us, as usual. Apparently, there is more madness planned for next week. #1 says that things wil not return to normal before October. And then for how long, I ask?

She did manage to take a few photos of me here and there. I tried Sei-Chan's "shelf basket" for size:

You see the calendar? That's my Beebs featured for September!

I have also been spending time on my favourite sofa seat:

Whilst #1 is away, I have decided to nap with my paws crossed. I am sure that will make her come home faster!

Manly Monday Memories - With UPDATE!

Vidock: Studly Neighs EveryFriend! I am going for my post-surgery endoscopy today, and will update later. Would you mind crossing a few paws and hooves that I get the all-clear?

In the meantime, we thought it would be fun to do a Monday post that harks back to when we were all little guys. So, here I am, first. In this photo, I am just 17 months old!

I had my endoscopy and I am A-OK! I will tell you more about it on Wednesday.

Next up is Tommy, He was five and a half months old in this photo:

Here is Da Beebs, also at about five months:


And Da Genj  at about four months:

We even found a pic of Mad Fernant when he was a puppy!

And Fernant's bro, Basha!
