The Blue Dog & The White Horse

‘Adventures on a Texas Ranch’

The Blue Dog and The White Horse, ‘Adventures on a Texas Ranch’, was self-published in 2020. The children’s book (that adults enjoy too), shares the experiences of Gracie, a young blue heeler cattle dog, and Max, a retired roping horse.

Gracie was adopted as a homeless puppy, underweight, unhealthy, and afraid of almost everything. Max was a well-trained, highly-skilled retired roping horse whose needs were being met, but not much more than that.

When the two animals, different in seemingly every way, met they formed a nearly immediate bond. Gracie learned how to be strong and confident and Max learned he still had a purpose.

The stories in the book are true and took place on a ranch in Texas. The book is written for kids who love dogs, horses, animals and are curious about life on a Texas ranch, and for parents and adults who enjoy the lessons that our animal friends have to teach us.

The second book in this planned series about Gracie, the blue dog, and Max, the white horse is titled, ‘Tales of Friendship’ and is a continuation of the adventures of the two best friends.

As an accompaniment to The Blue Dog and The White Horse series, a Blue Dog and White Horse Activity Book has also been written and designed for kids to engage in games, puzzles, mazes, word searches and pages to color.
