Better than a Five Dollar Bill!

It was 22 degrees this morning.
Our coldest morning so far this

Can you see jam?
When J and I got to the barn this morning,
everyone was all snuggled in their straw beds!

Including Jam.
The $5.00 bill thief.

I wonder~
Does she dream of doing the
*right thing*
and returning the birthday money
Little Miss Annie
does she giggle to her furry self
and think,
"I am one rich little Barn Kitty!"

Read about the latest antics of Jam the Barn Cat!

Such a gorgeous day it was!
Annie grazed, romped, ran, and bucked
and over
all day long.

She trotted around and around the pasture.

And played in her water trough
that had just been cleaned and filled.

With very cold water from the well!
Then she shook her head
over and over.
I think she had
~Brain Freeze~

Get out of here Mr Crow!

Annie also has a new game.
She loves to chase the Crows!
In her
she chats to them
she flies all over the pasture
after the crows.
When the crows give flight,
she takes a
trot around the field!

And thinks to herself~
{This is better than a five dollar bill!}

This is what our evening looked like.

Sweeping off the concrete walk in
front of barn,
I marveled at the

And I thought to myself,
This is better than a five dollar bill...

Have you seen this?
If not, then Enjoy!!
If so, then enjoy it all over again :)
And remember to view it full screen.
It is so worth it!

Have a wonderful week!
I will be back in a few days
with pics of a barn decorated for Christmas
and a wish list
from each horse!

*What do you think Annie will ask for
on her Christmas list?


p.s. The Jolly Ball ordered for Annie's b-day
is on back-order :(

p.p.s.  Hope you all had a splendid holiday!

Misha, thanks for popping by my blog, so nice to hear from "old" friends. :-)

Your pics are every bit as gorgeous as mine - isn't it just too much fun to watch our horses' antics out in the pasture? I managed to catch our 3 in the act yesterday as I walked past a door - they are so fun to watch. I can only imagine the hours of entertainment that Miss Annie has given you guys.

I'm working 2 jobs now, yes, TWO. *sigh* Got a full-time job at the hospital where I temp'd twice in the past year, and decided to keep the toll collector job for weekends only. At least for awhile. We'll see how it goes! By next summer I will re-evaluate and maybe give up one or the other. Probably the toll collector job. :-(

Jam is a funny cat. Annie just cracks me up--chasing crows and telling them how it is.
Looking forward to seeing the barn.

Glad your hokiday was great.
