Tis The Season...

Sing to the tune of "Jingle Bells"

Trudging through the snow, a wheelbarrow full feed
With hay and grain I go, to horses full of need

Blankets covered in poo, Fleece mittens I now don
The filly pooped in the water tub and the chores go on and on

OH! Jingle bells, the barn now smells, hay is running low
I freeze and sweat, supplies I get, the hose is froze I know!

OH! The horses munch, my shoes do crunch, o'er newly fallen snow
Soft nickers, prickly whiskers, it's a perfect life "fo sho!"

Have a VERY Merry Christmas!

Love, Karen and The Gang
(Mike, Kali, Matt, Jasper, Rylee, Fidget, Kiko, Spaz, Lucy, Mya, Foxy, Chili, Angel, Bullwinkle, Jazzy, Kaci, and Millie)

Karen, I love this! Can I post this to my FaceBook if I give you credit?

Karen V said...

Lynne - Absolutely you can!

Thanks Karen! What an adorable poem! Did you write that while mucking stalls? perhaps throwing hay? lugging water buckets? lol

Karen V said...

LO!L Actually, I wrote it to submit to Joe at TB Friends but it was too long for him. SO... I kept it. It's just a day in my life - and it all happened in just one day. Since I'm not the only one who has days like that, I figured I'd share.

Except for the filly pooping in the water bucket, it sounds like my life! You are a hit on FaceBook. Many of my friends have hit the "like" button. Thank you for giving me something fun to sing while doing chores.
