We recently got a new member on our team. Taff (formerly known as Rags) joined us in March. He is a son of Nan and Ralph Pulfer's Tweed.

Nan ignores her son. He tried to puppy bow to her when he first saw her and he got a large snarl. He got the hint.

Taff is soo pretty err HANDSOME!

:rolleyes: Don't you just love the b*tchy attitude of the girls. I laugh when I read Nan telling him off. That sound so like Cressa.

Taff is sure looking good. I enjoyed reading about your first trial experience. And then I drifted around your blog and found the Cowboy Dressage links. Omigosh, that Morgan is a gorgeous horse! Where do you come up with this stuff?!

The blog is about my life on the farm, dog training and trialing, my past heart surgeries and whatever captures my interest. I love horses and when I saw the Dressage Morgan, I just had to put it in. I put random items in that might be of interest to people. People also send me stuff for the blog.

I enjoy doing the blog and it is a history of my life.

I find keeping up a blog to be very difficult -- I blame it on my boring life. But yours is always interesting, and I like the various other things that you pop in there.

What a nice looking boy! How old is he? Just curious. I have a couple of dogs with Pulfer's Tweed in their background. I always liked that dog.

Much luck with this boy.

Beautiful, Beautiful dog. I was never one for dogs with a fair amount of white, but after my little white girl I have been converted. He is just so gorgeous! I love that tri bit on his over eye.

Taff just turned 4 in Feb. He is an AWESOME DOG! I love him. He is a male version of my Nan!

His mom is my Nan (L&M Nana) and his sire is Ralph Pulfer's Tweef. Stephanie Goracke got Tweed from Ralph. The breeder was Jodi Addis and he was sold to Lisa Webb. I got him from Lisa.

He is strong, pushy and a fast dog, full of life. Very loyal and only listens to me. Taff is a tremendous dog!!

(Please be aware that all these, except the first three or four, are SOOC, so no adjusting or editing was done, as you can tell, I had taken A LOT of pics that day :rolleyes: )

Diane - let me know if you want any of these in full resolution, I can change their settings on my flickr acct so you can download them if you want. Or you can simply save this versions from the boards.
