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.

What We Didn't Know About Donkey Hooves

Posted by Sharkey

As you may know by now, I love playing with our miniature donkeys, Clive, Rufus, and Billie.  The other day, I was running in their paddock trying to get them to play with me, but they said that they had something important to do in the stable.  At first I thought they were just brushing …

What to Make of a Pile of Feathers!

The other day, Franny and I went outside in hopes of doing a little squirrel chasing.  One of the best places to find squirrels at the farm is under the bird feeders, where there is usually a free meal waiting for them.  On that particular day, however, we came upon a sorry scene.

Disappointed With the Weather

Francesca and I got all excited when we heard the weatherman calling for snow accumulation. I suppose with all our excitement, we failed to hear the part about snow changing over to rain. Anyway, we got our warm winter gear on and headed out to play, only to find it quite messy outdoors.

Have You Seen The Martha Stewart Orchid?

Posted by Sharkey

A beautiful and fragrant orchid appeared suddenly in the kitchen the other day and as I was admiring it, it dawned on me that I had seen it before.  I had a feeling that it was on one of Martha’s blogs from years ago and sure enough, after a little investigation, that’s where it had …

Our Holiday Greeting Card

Posted by Sharkey

I’ve been seeing all of the holiday cards arriving in the mail every day and I got to thinking that Francesca and I should make a holiday card of our own.  I took a look up in the craft room and realized that all the materials we would need are there.  It really doesn’t take …

Today is December 13th, which makes it Francesca’s birthday.  Good thing I remembered because last year I forgot and I haven’t heard the end of it ever since!  This year, I even got creative in the kitchen and made a special treat.

Helping in the new Greenhouse

Posted by Sharkey

At long last, the new greenhouse for storing all of the tropical plants during the cold months has been completed.  It was a lot of work building it and even more work moving all of the plants into it.  Ryan and Wilmer have it nicely organized and they can now focus on caring for the …
