From the Barnyard

Dalmatian Puppies

The Dalmatian puppies welcome you to the barnyard! They are getting so big! I took them out for a photo shoot yesterday and we had total, complete and utterly enjoyable puppy madness! I loved it!

There are a few things these pups need to learn living here on a Wyoming ranch.

DSC 0126

One is to know who your friends are.

DSC 0129

There is a difference between the nice cat...

DSC 0117

(We are going to use the word “nice” a little freely here.)

DSC 0112

And the not so nice cat.

DSC 0113

C’mon Tag, read the field, read the field.

DSC 0111

Oh and Iron Man takes one for the team. (Notice this is the “not so nice" cat. Not the mean cat. I think the puppies figured that one out pretty quickly.)

DSC 0172

This is Banjo, he will be moving to Utah and spending his weekends and days off at a ranch in Colorado.

DSC 0225

This is Stirling.

And Tag, they get to stay together forever with an amazing woman in Kansas.

Iron Man is headed to North Dakota. He is Mr. Playful.

And this darling just melts my heart. Scooter is going to be a Montana dog. Ahh I just love her.

DSC 0210

Can you tell by the million or so pics I got of her.

But how can I resist this little gal?

Scooter is taking off with the cat in hot pursuit while Stirling looks on.

DSC 0178

I don’t know, you just have to love all the spots, wagging tails and a grumpy cat!

And don’t even ask me what Banjo is doing here, just being a dog I guess. He tends to be the happy go lucky, yet not so coordinated one of the bunch.

DSC 0189

Yep here he is trying to pull himself back on the porch after falling partway off. Cutie Scooter just daintily walks down the stairs.

While Super Tag is flying down!

DSC 0242

And what do you suppose Iron Man and the cat are up to here?

DSC 0200

One more wrestle pic. I just love them.

The Western Original just pulled into the drive. Look at his welcome!

DSC 0252A

Yep coming home to this welcome “waggin” isn’t too bad at all!

<< Next - Fav. time of year^^ Back to the top ^^ Prev. Yes, I work out >>

Yeah, I work out...

you go to the gym

Here is a little countrywisdomI have learned.

#1 You can’t go to the August Pony sale at BLS with a 6-year-old girl and expect to NOT come home with a mini horse.

#2 Sea Salt, Caramel and chocolate may be the best flavor combination in the history of forever!

#3 You don’t make a quick stop at the co-op during chick days with an 8-year-old girl without coming home with a chicken. Or 7.

Meet Pearl. (Named after my grandmother.)

She is the cutest, sweetest, nicest chick you will ever meet in your life. Just ask my little chicken wrangler.

She turned my quick stop at the co-op into a full out afternoon adventure. Thanks Pearl.

IMG 3435

I think the chicken wrangler might have a future in pet photography. I like the staging here.

The weather has been so much nicer! So we went for a walk. Or a muddy slog. However you want to phrase it.

DSC 0090

My herd came running to greet us. I was hoping to capture one of those majestic horse galloping pictures we all love.

But to me the horses just look like a bunch of goons.

Maybe it is just because I know them.

DSC 0091

Maybe it is because they are just a big bunch of goons.

I think probably.

DSC 0097

Addie and Biggie Blue found each other right away.

DSC 0112

Bandit gets in there for some head scratching action.

DSC 0105

I was watching the dozen or so dogs we took with us.

Pure craziness.

That was Friday.

Saturday the kids went fishing with grampa Mark. So The Western Original decided it was a good time to go get a load of hay.

Banjo, the dalmatian puppy, came along to entertain me. This was the two of us before the load of hay. All fresh and smiles.


And here is after the load of hay.

My muscles are aching. I am sweaty. I am covered in hay leaves.

Lovely huh.

This is my “Oh you go to the gym, that’s cute” picture.


I am on top of the load waiting for the Western Original to send the tie-downs over the load.

I took a selfie.

I think there is a chance I may need to get a new hoodie.


We are loaded and heading home.

IMG 3456

This is how Banjo looked.

This is how I felt.

And that was Saturday…. There is still Sunday.

Join us soon here at the barnyard! Oh my favorite time of year is just around the corner and the days get filled with more and more barnyard fun!
