Brooksville, KY (PRWEB) July 17, 2010
As part of their animal breeding program, the Boatmans increased their stable of Old English Mastiffs. These large, highly loyal and incredibly playful pups can easily top the 200 pound mark for males, 130 or so for females. With 12 dogs of various ages already on the farm, the ten new puppies have already become the protected ones by the other females.
“It is amazing to watch these gentle giants,” Carolyn Boatman said. “The mother is so gentle and so attentive with each of them. She tenderly cares for them and now that they are getting older and moving around, she makes them mind by nipping and pushing them in the right direction. It’s just like a human mother and her babies!”
The 265-acre Sabbath Song Farm is also home to seven Paso Fino horses. Also on the property is The Country Lodge, a renovated dairy-barn-turned-bed-and-breakfast of incredible design. The Boatmans keep busy just feeding the animals and taking care of the place. With 22 large, dog-food-eating animals, the work never quite gets completely finished before the next morning starts again. The food is either going in one end or out the other!
“They are an incredible amount of work,” said Wes Boatman. “But they are so loveable and so much a part of our family. They love our grandchildren, especially our Autistic grandson, and are great protectors of the farm, our house, and even the cars!”
The Old English Mastiffs are known for their protective nature. Once they are introduced to their families, they get along well with other pets. Although they can be very intimidating because of their large size, they generally keep intruders away simply by their presence, no biting needed! They have a loving nature and show a strong need for companionship, according to the Boatmans. The Boatmans breed for
stability, longevity, and a mild even-tempered disposition.
As part of the breeding program, the puppies not pre-sold will be available for adoption after they turn eight weeks old, sometime in August. The Boatmans are intent on not keeping any of this litter, however, they have made the same proclamation on the last two litters as well, increasing their count from six to….twelve. It is just too hard to resist their beautiful color and great personality, according to Carolyn.
