What Do I Spy?

With My Little Eye: A Riddle for My Readers

Something very strange I see
Hanging in the apple tree!
What is it, what can it be?
Hanging in the apple tree?
Is it bird, or beast or bee?
Hanging in the apple tree?
Take a closer look to see
What this mystery can be....
Still not sure of what you see
Hanging in the apple tree?
Ripped up winter blanket be
This strange thing upon the tree.
And how did this all come to be?
Take a Chance and guess for me. 

And now you can see why I am not going to be able to repair at least one of Tucker's torn up winter blankets. I've found pieces here and there around the paddocks. Somehow I don't think there's much Chance the wind put them there.

Wish I'd been around to watch the fun.

    Wow - that's some sort of serious blanket destruction. We get little rips and tears, but nothing like that.

  2. Fantasic horses you have!

    Your poor blanket LOL!

    I hope you are feeling much better ((((((((big hugs from Italy))))))))

  3. Oh no! How did he get it way up there. Does he hate his blankets that much that he thought he had to hide it in a tree. Too funny, what a bunch of characters you have.

  4. LOL!! Your post made me laugh :) Although, I'm not sure I would be laughing if I had to keep on buying winter blankets.

    Hope your back is feeling better.

  5. What a stinker! That is too funny.... Have you thought of getting a shrink wrapper? Like the ones they use for winterizing boats. Maybe that would keep the boys blankets on?

  6. the mind boggles how it ended up in the tree!

    nice take on the song, BTB
