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

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 …

Maybe you recall last week when Francesca and I wandered down to the stable to visit Betsy.  Betsy, as it turns out, was busy with her chores but had enough time to introduce Franny to a new product she’s trying out called ‘Scratch n All’.  Betsy wants to use it in the donkey paddock so …

It was all over the local news yesterday morning that severe thunderstorms were moving through the area.  Where I don’t mind the rain so much, I have to admit that thunderstorms scare me.  Looking out the door, I noticed that it was getting really dark and Francesca and I took a peek from the covered …

We, Frenchies, had a little rhythm thing going on the other day and we wandered on down to the stables to see if Betsy wanted to dance with us.  However, Betsy was on a mission because she is trying out a new kind of horse bedding and she was lining a stall with it.  You …

After basking in the nice warm springtime sun, Sharkey and I decided to have a look around when we spotted Gyurme busy with chores.  It turns out that he was filling the bird feeders, which hang from the eaves of the carport/blog studio.  We decided to help him because this is a big job, as …
