Brynlee Anne Perry

Well, this is a totally non-horse related post... unless you count the fact that the day I went into labor I popped up on Shae just to "see how it felt."   Here's little Brynlee Anne.  Born on Oct. 23, 2011 at 5:53 AM.  The time stamp on our phone is a bit off.  Remember, you can click on a photo to view full size.

Brand spankin' new... 

Brynlee's first bath a couple hours later.  George said that she screamed bloody murder the whole time!
 Here's a great picture of Brynlee's poor little crooked mushed up ears and cone head... good thing that straightened up in a couple days.  Merryn called them "orc ears"... not the most flattering description!

All wrapped up and happy! 

One Day Old...
Brynlee's little cone head is already better!

Time to go home!!

These next pictures are from November 4 when Jenna, Gabi and Doug came to visit.  Doug did a fantastic job taking all sorts of cute baby pictures!  Notice how nicely shaped her head and ears are now! 

And now, I can't believe that she's already 7 weeks old!!  She's really changed a lot more since the Nov. 4th pictures.  I will have to post more later!

1 week before delivery...

... we didn't know it at the time, but these pictures were all taken exactly one week before our little girl Brynlee decided to make her debut!!  These pictures were all taken by our friend Doug DeMark on Oct. 16.

Winter Boredom...

It's been ages since my last post.  My life has been a whirl of work, work, bad icky weather, work, and more icky windy cold weather.  Hasn't motivated me to do much with the ladies when I go outside and am greeted by wind gusts in the 40 - 55 mph range.

Anyway, my friend Jenna came out last weekend and we rode Sunday and Monday.  First time doing anything with Ren and Shae in quite a while.  George called and without me knowing it, Jenna shot a couple pictures.  I had no idea she even took her camera out!!

Yes, pictures of the back of me and my horse.  Although, they do remind me that riding a draft really makes your own butt look small!  Ren's rump on the other hand... well... let's not say anything.  I'm sure any criticism would only hurt her feelings.  LOL.
Anyway, that's my Feb. 2011 update!  Hopefully the weather will clear up, warm up, and dry up so that I can start getting out and working with Ren and Shae on a daily basis.
