Sharkey Bakes a Soufflé

Sharkey Bakes a Soufflé

Posted by Sharkey

I was in the mood to bake a soufflé and I asked Thomas Joseph from the TV kitchen if he would be willing to come to Bedford and give me a hand.  A soufflé is a combination of custard and beaten egg whites and when it comes out of the oven, it should be puffed …

A Museum for Frenchies?  I Don't Think So!

A Museum for Frenchies? I Don't Think So!

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

I hadn’t been to the blog studio in a while so I decided to go inside.  I was kind of surprised to see that Francesca and Sharkey use the space as an art museum all about them.  Well, that’s something that’s definitely got to change!

Ramon's Protection

Ramon's Protection

Posted by F&S

We, Frenchies, were wandering around the farm the other day, when we saw Betsy leading Ramon out to a paddock.  Something looked different about that Friesian so we went to find out what it could be.

On Martha’s blog today, she shares photos taken at Camp Lejeune, in North Carolina, when she met up with First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden and taped a very special Mother’s Day tribute, which will air on Sunday night on Hallmark Channel.  You may already know this but, Rock, who drives for Martha, …

Cleaning Martha's Desk

Cleaning Martha's Desk

Posted by Sharkey

Well, yesterday we blogged about smashing the giant chocolate bunny and if that wasn’t enough, I was given another task of cleaning and organizing Martha’s desk.  Martha’s desk is right in the kitchen and since that’s where we, Frenchies, hang out, I didn’t really mind too much.  After all, we’re the ones who have to …

Shedding Our Winter Coats

Shedding Our Winter Coats

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I were outside the other day, when she suddenly realized that Sasa, the horse, was no longer wearing his warm winter coat.  That caused her to go into a silly tirade about how we are no longer wearing our fashionable cold weather wardrobe and she was actually lamenting that fact!  Honestly, Sharkey can …

Franny and I were in our blog studio, editing some recent photos, when I got up to stretch and look outside.  I was very interested to notice that after we entered the studio, something had made some changes to the door stoop outside.  This is a farm, after all, and there are critters galore!

On Martha’s blog today, she explains how we got a new delivery of baby chicks.  They were brought to the farm by Traci Torres, of My Pet Chicken.  Traci’s business provides everything you need to keep backyard chickens, including baby chicks, chicken coops, accessories, and books.  Along with the adorable little chicks, Traci also brought …

Our Latest Visit to the Stable

Our Latest Visit to the Stable

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

There seemed like a lot of action at the stables the other day, so Francesca, Sharkey, and I went to check it out.  Linda, the farrier, was there and it’s always great to see her.  Betsy was also getting ready to take Ramon out for a ride.  And it seemed that Ramon had a few …

Sharkey Tries to Befriend the Sheep

Sharkey Tries to Befriend the Sheep

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

You probably know from reading this blog that the Frenchies, especially Sharkey, like to bark at the donkeys, Clive, Rufus, and Billie.  Where the donkeys just laugh and let the idle threat roll away, other members of the farm menagerie take matters more seriously.  For example, the two Black Welsh Mountain sheep don’t know what …
