As you can see, my sweet little horse has been making manure - well, I decided manure pies WOULD NOT be cool; but the sentiment is cool,
"Just like birthdays...manure happens!" - HA HA HA! Thank goodness Timbo keeps the manure cleaned out of the Pig Pen!  :D 

Not too much further and Maggie Manure (that's my horse's name) and I will arrive at the barn for the big HOEDOWN; hope you hop along for the birthday fun!

Now off to the lovely Libby's blog, where you can see what happens next at Timbo's Birthday Bash! If you get lost, here is the order of birthday fun:
