Being Tough at the Office

Being Tough at the Office

Posted by F&S

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 …

G.K. Has a Mentor!

G.K. Has a Mentor!

So many of you leave comments about where G.K. is and how come G.K. isn’t helping with this or with that.  Well, it’s a little hard competing with Francesca and Sharkey, who always are vying for the spotlight.  However, I think I found a mentor.  His name is Gyurme.

Remember last week when I blogged about the possibility of getting a new Friesian horse for the farm?  Well, yesterday, Sharkey and I drove down to the stable to see if anything had come of that and here’s what we found!

A New Friesian for the Farm?

We, dogs, have been hearing Martha talking to Betsy about the possibility of getting another horse to take beloved Martyn’s place, may he forever rest in peace.  We decided to help with the search, so we trotted (no pun intended) over to Cogi Farm where, we were told, there might be a Friesian for sale.

Perhaps you saw Martha’s television show last Friday, when Sharkey and I were part of a canine fashion show.  It was all about winter wear for dogs.  Dogs, just like people, need coats and sweaters to keep them warm during harsh winter weather.  We’re sure happy that Martha dresses us so well.  Anyway, here are …

Hay is Not Just For Horses

Sharkey and I have been going around the farm, inspecting all that’s being done in preparation for a long and cold winter.  I started thinking about all the creatures down at the stable and if they would have a sufficient supply of hay to get through the season.  Here’s what we found.

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.

Foraging for the Chickens

Foraging for the Chickens

We don’t know what you do with your pumpkins and gourds once Halloween and Thanksgiving are past.  At the farm, when they’re no longer needed for decoration, we put them to really good use.  Martha’s chickens love eating them.  Can you believe that one of the local restaurants, was going to throw away their giant …

The Crows at the Farm

The Crows at the Farm

Posted by F&S

Being the observant Frenchies that we are, we’re always keeping a close eye on the other animals at the farm.  Of course, there are the domesticated ones, who, like us, call this place their home.  But, in addition, there are the wild ones, who also seem to call this turf their home.  We are particularly …
