Meet Sharkey

I was born on February 18, 2005, in Trappe, Maryland. While my personality is laidback and easygoing, I’m always ready for a good adventure. If I see something I need to chase, like a squirrel, for example, I’m out the door and across the field without hesitation. I also really love to intimidate the donkeys even though a kick from them would probably really hurt. Francesca complains that I’m much too spontaneous and daring, but I just really like to have fun. I think Franny believes that I’m just not as smart as she is, but she is a bit of a snob.

The Art of Extracting Honey

The Art of Extracting Honey

Posted by Sharkey

Well, we finally got around to extracting the honey from the beehives.  Carlos seemed to bee a bit frazzled, so I offered to be of assistance.  The whole process is rather time consuming.  The honey tastes really, really good – very herbal and light.  Thank you honeybees for providing again.

A few days ago, after our last snowstorm, Martha wanted to drive around the farm and take photos for her blog.  Since we had the power of the Kawasaki and its excellent four-wheel drive, I asked Martha to take me to visit Sasa, the new Friesian on the farm.  He’s a really great guy and …

G.K. and I were outside the other day when it started to snow again!  This has been quite a winter, so far.  I was concerned about the donkeys out there in their paddock so G.K. and I trekked out through the snow to pay them a visit.

Looking for Beauty on a Dismal Day

As you may have heard, we’ve had quite a bit of snow here at the farm.  Yesterday, however, was quite a different story because it was raining all day on top of all that snow, making it just pain dismal.  Good thing we Frenchies, don’t need an excuse to curl up and take a nap.  …

What We Found With Our Toys

Posted by Sharkey

Franny and I wanted to play outside the other day, but it was just too darn cold, so we started looking for indoor options.  Martha keeps toys for us all around the house and I wanted to play with some that were in a little storage cube.  Of course, things don’t always go according to …

Yesterday, Franny kind of kept you hanging about what we, Frenchies, would find next on our little adventure around the farm after the blizzard.  She ended the blog as we were headed towards the stable to visit our friends there.  Let me just say that after a heavy snow, you just can’t be too careful …

I’ve been scrolling back over all of the blogs that Franny and I posted this past year and I have to admit that life is just never dull for us Frenchies.  So much happens around the farm and we also blog about our adventures away from home.  Once again, Franny and I would like to …

I was walking through the house the other day when I happened upon Empress Tang and Princess Peony.  I swear, those two cats think they are so wonderful and over the top.  But what they really are is so annoying!

I wanted to see what was going on around the house with all of Martha’s holiday décor.  Laura Acuna has been really busy decorating so I decided to take a little stroll around.  Franny and I will definitely blog about all of that festive stuff, but in the meantime, I wanted to share this little …
