Aggie’s Birthday

You may remember previous posts about Aggie, the white horse whose pasture we drive by on our trips to and from the Outer Banks. (If you’re a new reader and would like to catch up on Aggie: here are the links to my first post, second post and third post about her.)

A few months ago, I posted a picture of Aggie on an Outer Banks Facebook page of which I’m a member. A friend of Aggie’s family sent me a private message with some info, and included in that message was Aggie’s birth date: March 30, 1992. Yes, Aggie turned 22 years young yesterday.

Our plans for the day happened to take us in Aggie’s direction, so we paid her a birthday visit.  We took her a Happy Birthday balloon.

"For me?  You shouldn't have!"

“For me? You shouldn’t have!”

And a gift…

She couldn’t wait to see what was inside:

"Hurry! Hurry" What's in that bag?"

“Hurry! Hurry” What’s in that bag?”

Our birthday gift to Aggie was a carrot and a few horse treats.

Friday’s Fences – Meet Aggie

En route to the Outer Banks, we pass by a little pasture near Coinjock, North Carolina. And more times than not, there’s a white horse out in the pasture.  I even wrote a post about her back in January, in which I “gave” her a name.

She was there Saturday. So Motor Man pulled over. See the white sign there on the fence? It’s a little typewritten note, asking folks to please not go beyond the gate (for insurance reasons), and it’s signed with a lady’s name and “Aggie”.

I think Aggie is accustomed to folks stopping by to say hello.

Yes, I’d say Aggie is a real people person horse.

Bye, Aggie. I promise on the next trip, I’ll have horse treats.

Linking up to Friday’s Fences.
