The puppies are now just over four weeks old and they are on the MOVE! They are definitely bigger than the muppies were at the same age, but the verdict is still out on what breed mix they are. Any guesses?
The boys are all named for German show jumping riders and the girls are named for a couple crazy women in history from a Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast I listened to recently.
In the meantime, enjoy your puppy fix! We will have them for just a couple more weeks before they head north to their new homes!

Cute little poser! This is Ludger.
Puppy pile! Sister Tilly looking at the camera. She is lying on brother Marcus next to Ludger and Marco.
They are slowly getting brave enough to leave their tack room. I think this is Kately.
Release the “hounds”! Puppies on the move!
Yesterday I posted a photo of a cut/puncture wound in Coco’s nose on my social media accounts and subsequently was asked by a few folks how I found said wound. So, here you go.
Note the trail of blood trickling out her nose. She also has a cut on the outside of her nose.
It was not a tremendous amount of blood considering it was a “facial” wound, which usually bleed a LOT. She did NOT enjoy having it cleaned and putting medicine in her nose, but I can understand that and she really wasn’t terrible.
This photo is after I cleaned the injury and before I put medicine on it, you know, to send to my vet. When my vet builds a new building at his clinic I really think it should be named for me after all the money I’ve given him this year.
This photo really doesn’t do the injury justice. It is at least 1.5″ long and .25″ deep, if not deeper. It’s a pretty stout cut/puncture. I still have no idea how she got it.
To make up for the gross blood/injury photos, I give you PUPPIES!
Sleepy baby girl #1.
There are only two girls in this litter. SO CUTE!
On the move girl #2 with brothers in the background. They are getting VERY active!
Pablo was being weirdly nice to the dogs yesterday. Quila wasn’t too sure of his intentions, however.
P: Hello, dog friend. I would like to smell you.
Q: WTF are you doing, you ass.
And this morning I got to share my latte with a visitor to the barn!
Hello young grasshopper.
It is BLAZING hot here in Texas so I’ll be getting rides in early in the morning this weekend and possibly cutting all my hair off tomorrow. Have a GREAT weekend!
Happy Friday the 13th y’all! Boot City has a “13” tattoo and Coco has a “13” brand, so the number 13 is near and dear to us. It has been cooler and stormy this week in North Texas, which has been AMAZING, but sadly we haven’t gotten very much of the rain. Only .15″, but as long as the hay fields got it I’m happy.
The goats like to clean up the hay that the horses spill in the trailer. They are so helpful!
Introducing Nellie and her babies! The puppies were born on June 30. She had 8, but we sadly lost the runt at day 11. The rest appear to be doing fantastically!
Samson is the hungriest pony you’ve ever met. He is always trying to steal food at every opportunity. It helps that he’s so cute.
This puppy has the cutest nose spots. I’m hoping to have a name theme for them by the end of this weekend. I’m taking suggestions (but Game of Thrones is not an option. That has been suggested to me a lot and I don’t watch the show!).
Have a fantastic weekend!
I can’t believe July is nearly here! This summer is brutal so far with high temps and little or no rain. I REALLY hope we get some rain sooner rather than later.
Enjoy some funny farm pet pics!
I could start a series consisting entirely of Betty’s funny sleeping positions. This is the most relaxed Beagle in the world! We just love her! If you’d like to adopt Betty click here.
Murtagh always waits for me to fill the hay soaker, then he jumps on the bucket or the dry part of the hay to drink the hay water. He’s a weird kitty!
Hot summer days make for a thirsty kitty.
If you follow my social media you’ve seen posts of our new foster dog, Nellie. She is about to pop with puppies! She visited the vet on Tuesday and they estimated she would deliver in 24 to 48 hours. We are now on day 4……… I suspect they will arrive this weekend. We appreciate prayers for an easy and safe delivery of healthy puppies!
These two are obsessed with Edith, our cockatiel. I think their faces are so cute how intently they are staring at Edith.
Happy weekend! Coco is going to yet another little horse show this weekend. Hopefully she behaves better! What are you getting up to this weekend?
We have a chicken laying these teeny tiny eggs. They don’t have yolks and so far we have found at least 6 of them! They make for great dog treats.
Bubbles the barn kitty is doing very well. She stays put in her hay stall, but we can’t touch her yet. Hopefully with time she will become friendlier and realise we won’t hurt her.
This is Charlotte, our newest foster dog from Fort Worth Animal Control. She’s a few months old and we think she’s a German Shepherd cross. The shelter identified her as a lab mix, but she has decidedly German Shepherd ears, face shape and hind end conformation. She has learned to sit and wait her turn for meals.
We have had lots of pop up thunderstorms this week which make for some stunning sunsets.
We also have a mama cat with five kittens we are fostering for Fort Worth Animal Control. This is a cute tuxedo female from the litter. She was assisting with wash stall supply inventory and napping.
