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.

Examining the Beehives

Examining the Beehives

Posted by Sharkey

We were wandering around the farm the other day, noticing all of the changes going on in preparation for winter.  We don’t usually wander too close to the beehives because when the honeybees are really active, we don’t want to get in their way, if you know what I mean.  But, in cold weather, things …

A Revelation at the Chicken Coops

A Revelation at the Chicken Coops

Posted by Sharkey

Driving around in the Kawaski the other day, Franny and I stopped by the chicken coops and sadly reminisced about our poor friends, the turkeys.  Franny nearly lost it when she heard a gobble-gobble, but I kept my head and made a rather pleasant discovery.

You may recall a recent blog where Franny and I found some flower bulbs in the equipment barn and got busy planting a garden.  Well, last week, we discovered an entire film and a camera crew and some Dutch bulb experts working with Martha planting all those bulbs at the allee of lindens.  It was …

Do you remember the other day when Franny and I were being accused of making Vivaldi allergic?  We were actually being blamed for leaving our dog hair on the carpets that we rarely walk upon.  I just had to get to the bottom of this and decided to do a little detective work.

Perhaps you all watched Martha’s show when a bunch of us dogs got to wear Halloween costumes?  Well, I was expecting to be the star that day and I was very disappointed when G.K. stole the show.  All Martha wanted to do was focus on sewing his costume and I was just sitting there looking …

A New Doo For Meindert

A New Doo For Meindert

Posted by Sharkey

I really like to visit my pal, Meindert, one of Martha’s majestic Friesian horses.  When I was out helping blow leaves the other day, I got an idea that I really wanted to try out.  The Kawasaki was available so I got behind the wheel and drove down to the stable to pay Meindert a …

Clearing and Playing in Leaves

Posted by Sharkey

We don’t know what it’s like where you live, but here at the farm, leaves are falling like crazy.  Francesca and I were outside watching them float down to the ground when I decided to help with the leaf blowing.  Check this out and let me know if you like playing in piles of leaves …

In Search of the Perfect Cider Apple

In Search of the Perfect Cider Apple

Posted by Sharkey

Today on Martha’s blog, she posted about making apple cider again.  Franny was really interested in the whole process and thought that we should make some cider of our own.  I told her that I would pick the apples and wash them.  I found my favorite tree and picked a bunch, however, washing them was …

Franny and I were soaking up the warmth of the sun the other day when I suddenly realized something major was happening.  We, Frenchies, have had such an amazing summer and we hoped it would go on forever.  No such luck!
