Being a dog breeder has it's definite rewards or we wouldn't
be doing it at all. We dedicate every facet of our lives to our family, our dogs, our horses and our bulls but
there is absolutely no way to get around the fact that all of this it is a ton of hard work!
If you don't enjoy taking
on challenges, getting dirty (& really smelly)and working with incredible risk -don't do what we do!
horses and bulls are more than just our companions, they are our professor's in the subject of life itself. We
are better people for having them in our life despite the fact they certainly make us work for the grade.
The truth is both Jeff and I would rather spend time with our animals then chat
with friends. (I know how bad that is and I still love you all of you read this!!) We all stay busy here at the arena
and farm. My daughter Taylor is a huge help and really could not be replaced by any hired help. In all ways she
is growing up and taking on more everyday and doing a great job.
One question that people seem to ask me most is "How can you let any of them
go?" Boy that has been a journey in itself. Many tears have fell and will fall in the future. I recently parted
with my baby Brat and everyone was shocked that I did. I cried, and could now I am sure if I think on it to much - but
he got a Great home where he is spoiled rotten and loved so much. Seeing them together made me happy. I know how
perfect he was, how he could almost talk to you and as silly as it sounds - did talk to me. How could his new
best friend 's life not be significantly changed by adding my little man to her life. It was changed and she now has
my little love who will always do just that, Love her.
I think it's rewarding - yes sad but really neat to touch people with just a
little bit of good in there lives.
