I just had a birthday and my sister gave me a
very special gift!  A true gift of love!

She raises Friesian horses, aren't they beautiful... 

Well, you may not believe what a special thing she did for me for my birthday.  As you can imagine, where there are horses, there is horse c*#p!  Lots of it...

Warned you there was graphic material. J

One thing my sister and I have in common, we love our gardens and we don't mind getting DIRTY!
Especially for special occasions like birthdays!

So my sweet, loving and kind sister headed out into the pasture and began collecting horse c*#p for me!
Lots and lots and lots of c*#p...

She then lovingly spread this c*#p out on several tarps so it could dry.  For days and days it lay out in the bright sunshine to dry.

But then, oh c*#p, it began to rain!
So she hurriedly gathered the ends of the tarps to cover the c*#p so it would not get wet!  Once the sun shone again, she lovingly and gingerly re-opened the tarps and spread out the c*#p so it could continue to dry under the rays of the bright warm sun.

Once the c*#p was completely dry, with her kind and loving hands and the help of a screen, she lovingly and gingerly broke up and sifted the c*#p in to a large trash can.  She then adorned the trash can lid with a beautiful green bow...

and on my birthday, she surprised me with a trash can full of freshly dried and sifted horse c*#p...YIPPEE!

She did this because she loves me...
She did this because both my sister and I LOVE our gardens and horse c*#p is good for the soil!

So, if you happen to wonder where I will be on Monday...
If the good Lord's willing and the creek don't rise...
I'll be out back adding some of this black gold horse c*#p to the soil around my flowers.

Like these...

and these...

You gotta love somebody to do this.
Thanks sista', I LOVE YOU too...and that ain't no c*#p!

So enjoy your sweet comments, they make my day!

  17. Oh my goodness. You had me going for a while. Happy Birthday, what a wonderful gift to help you grow those beautiful flowers.
    hugs ~lynne~

  18. Oh yes, I'd rather receive a bucket full of cr**p like that any day then an unpersonal bunch of flowers. There was a lot of work involved in this gift and it is a gift that will continue to keep giving, with all the beautiful blooms it will bring.
    And yes I love Friesian horses! They are Dutch like me.

  19. What a load of c#*p your sister dumped on you! What a funny post, just the perfect start to my Monday. Gotta love a sister who will shovel a little c#*p for you. I just can't stop saying c#*p. I feel 10 years old again...:)

  20. Your title is a real attention getter. Oh yes, that is definately a gift of love. And, from the looks of your flowers, that load of c**p is really working. I've never wished anyone a c**py day before, but have fun!

  21. What a gift!!! I wish I had a sister like her!


  22. I am still laughing at your funny post! I had to share this with my husband. Your sister must have a real sense of humor, too!
