Francesca and I were running around the farm the other day when we heard our names being called.  Our pals, Clive, Rufus, and Billy were asking for our help.  It seems they were hungry for a snack.

Driving With Uncle Carlos

Posted by Francesca

Uncle Carlos came to visit yesterday.  It was a rainy day and we really wanted to get out of the house for a while.  He said that he would take us for a spin around the farm in the Kawasaki, one of our favorite things to do.  Come along for the ride!

If you read Martha’s blog, then you know that she was home one day, a couple of weeks ago, partaking in a photo shoot for her magazine, Martha Stewart Living.  I was going through our blog photos and I realized that Franny and I forgot to post about that day.  So, here it is – …

Let Them Eat Cake, or Not

Posted by Francesca

One day last week, when Martha was at home, she gathered all of the grounds crew after their lunch to celebrate Fernando’s birthday.  She served them, what looked to be, a really great cake.  Cake seems to be a weakness for Sharkey and she acted very badly.

The other day, Laura Acuna, the housekeeper, needed to go to the store, so we piled into the car and drove her there.  However, the car was running low on gas and we had to pull into a gas station along the way.  Check this out!

Advice From Meindert, the Horse

Posted by Sharkey

As you know, I have been feeling quite dejected about making friends at the farm.  It seems that no one, except Francesca and G.K. and the horses want to be with me.  I decided to trot down to the stable and have a word with Meindert.  He is always such a sage and I feel …

Franny and I noticed that Martha was posting a blog about one of our favorite hiking places in Maine – Jordan Pond.  We suddenly remembered that we, too, had another blog from Jordan Pond to share with you from the last time we were in Maine.

A Shiny New Apple for Shaun

Posted by Sharkey

Shaun, our gardener, mentioned to us on several occasions that he could really use a new computer in the greenhouse.  The one he’s been working on is quite old and has a lot of issues and he was losing important gardening information.  Like Martha, we Frenchies, want the farm running smoothly and we were instrumental …
