Like our new blog header? Do you see who’s new?

We’re so lucky that our friend Carson over at The 7MSN Ranch is a phenom at Photoshop.

I sent her this photo of Harriet straight out of my camera:

Harriet SOOC

And she sent this masterpiece back:


Thank you, Carson. ♥

On Sunday morning we backed the trailer into the corral and said, “All aboard to anyone who wants to go to a party!” I’m sure no one will be surprised to hear that Bernard was the first to climb aboard, completely unaided.

Bernard was followed by Patrick, then Ellsworth.

We did our best to convince Buck of the great time that was in store for him, but in the end he decided to stay with Nigel and Gracie at Morning Bray Farm. Maybe next time.

It was a beautiful day and our drive was uneventful:

The 7MSN herd was waiting to greet us when we arrived:

Bernard, Ellsworth and Patrick were so happy to be back, they didn’t waste any time getting the party started:

Patrick got us into a festive mood by modeling the latest in Cinco de Mayo fashion, along with George, Hank, Lucy and Don:

When Carson brought out the first round of her Thirsty Rancher-Woman Margaritas, we were all excited – people and equines alike. Carson makes a really good margarita:

We went out and did some game donkey driving in the Ranger, with the hope of spotting the rare and elusive feral donkeys of Morning Bray Farm. (The last couple of times we’ve visited 7MSN, the Boyz turn into the Wild Boyz and want nothing to do with us while they’re exploring.)

Alan came over to see if he could talk Danni into giving him a taste of her margarita:

Ah, yet another perfect donkey (and people) play date day with our truly awesome friends.

Loved it. ♥

With the addition of Buck to the Morning Bray Farm herd, you might have noticed our new blog header this week. 

Credit must go to where credit is due. I’m not sure how many of you are aware that Carson over at 7MSN has been responsible for Morning Bray Farm’s blog headers from the beginning.

Carson took this photo and turned it into our first blog header:

Then she transformed one of my pictures of Bernard and Ellsworth into our next blog header:

Honestly, I think this header after Fergus and Nigel had joined our herd is my favorite of all time. Again, Carson took my picture and brought it to life:

December 2010. A beautiful Christmas gift:

March 2011. Patrick’s arrival:

July 2011. It broke our hearts to post this header:

October 2011. Our new header. Welcome home Buck:

Thank you Carson… for making them all come alive. Thank you.
