~Dear Annie~ Letter #143



Today


Last week, J fixed this section of fence :(

Oh, Annie.
Could you find a new game?


C'mon, little girl!


Chase the crows,
tease Auntie Allegra,
clank the gate chain,
chew on your Mama's tail,
play in the water trough!


Anything,
but kicking out the fence again for the 
2,934 time 
since you were born
not quite 2 years ago!




Tonight
Annie staring at her fence, while wearing a sly grin..

And, Annie?
Don't stare at your handy-work all night long.
{wipe that smirk off your face!}


Bedtime, Annie!
Lay down on your fluffy bed of fresh straw.
Call out Good night to
your Mama, Miss D
your Grandmother, Allure
your Uncle Cadence
and your Auntie Allegra.
Go to sleep now.
~There are carrots waiting to dance in your dreams~


Tomorrow morning brings a new day!
Full of gorgeous Autumn sunshine...


A perfect day for an almost two year old,
to stay put in the middle of the pasture
and
not set one hoof near that dang fence.


And if you do, little missy? 
No, "Mr. Ed" for one week!
{i mean it. now wipe that smirk off your face!}


Love you to the moon and back, Little Miss Annie!
xo,
misha


p.s. thank you for sniffing my face all over
with your wet muzzle tonight!
annie, you make hard weeks seem a little easier
since you were born 719 days ago.

Misha, I gotta say, in all my horsey years, I have not come across one who continuously kicks out boards.. in a pasture!... the way Annie does. She is something, alright :-)

Hope you're turning the corner a feeling a bit better?...

Lynne said...

You go girl . . . not you Annie . . . the "momma" who writes about you!
We love our animal quirks but 2500+ fence kicks . . .
a bit much for sure!

Gail said...

This could be a problem...with such a sweet face!

The White Farmhouse said...

Oh, the terrible 2's! I wish you well my friend. Lil Miss Annie seems quite the handful! She is quite the kicker though. Maybe she wants to be a rockette?!

Did you see that we are moving to Tennessee? I can't wait!

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

Wondering why she enjoys the game of 'kicking the fence' so much. Ornery I say... just plain ornery!

Deb said...

I wonder what she's thinking when she does it. Does she want to run free on the other side? Does she just like to break things? Does she just like to watch J fix the fence? Such a fiesty girl.

The night time picture of her is sweet.

Jeanette said...

That Annie sure is a little stinker! Too bad there isn't some kind of flexible fencing you could install!

Beth said...

an animal that is truly testing your patience. but she is such a cutie. look at that face hiding out behind the bars. so sweet. i must say i had a little chuckle. i've never seen or meet a horse who has done such a silly thing.(:

TexWisGirl said...

your poor J. you need to invest in fence plank stock... God bless Annie and her wicked ways for all the pleasure she brings you, miss misha!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

That Annie is sure a handful and keeping up with her bad habits. what about an electric line on the inside of the fence? would that keep her off the fence and she'd get the message not to kick? We did that with our fences and the horses learned if they leaned over the fence to fight, graze, etc., they'd get a shock. Didn't take them long to learn to back off.

Annie makes sure your days are not boring :)

Samantha said...

Oh, young lady..you're going to get in BIG trouble one of these days!

Mary said...

Oooh, coming into the terrible two's to boot. I bet she has several antics up her sleeve. Hopefully safe ones. Such a sweetie though.

I wish for your good weeks to outnumber your bad ones.

Donna said...

Gosh, will she ever grow out of board kicking, LOL?!

Kayla @ TheEclecticElement said...

You told her!

Hopefully. Maybe. It sounds like she has a mind of her own, though, and a willful one at that :)

Good thing she's too darn adorable to stay mad at. Lol

Feral Female a.k.a. Vicki Locey said...

Oh dear, those terrible twos! =)

rosedel said...

I hope you are feeling better. And I hope that Annie's Antics help make you smile. They sure make me smile!

Rural Revival said...

Oh Annie, tsk, tsk...one really should be on the best behaviour so close to their birthday and when Christmas is just around the corner. Just sayin!

And please give your Mom a big snuggle from me. : )

Love,
Auntie Andie
xoxoxo

Annie is sure fun to be around:)

Country Dreaming said...

Oh, that Annie--love a good Annie story though.
719 wow!

Hope you are feeling better.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Oh Annie! I wonder why she's kicking the fence. I've known them to kick in their stalls, but the fence? Annie, that's just wrong. She needs a job. Who's going to start her ground work? Little Miss Smarty Pants needs something else to do:-)

Donna said...

Annie is a hoot! She brings a smile to my face ... give her a big hug and a sugar cube ... please!
I adore your header with the fall scenes!
Hugs,
Donna
