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 …

A Merry Christmas Prank

A Merry Christmas Prank

Posted by Francesca

You know how I’m always saying how wonderful Sharkey and I are?  Well, I guess others feel the same way because now there are stuffed dog toys being made in our image!  And just in time for Christmas, they even came with little Santa hats!  I found them before Sharkey did and I decided to …

Sharkey Helps Decorate for the Holidays

Sharkey Helps Decorate for the Holidays

Posted by Francesca

It isn’t officially winter yet, but snow has started to fall and  Sharkey and I were quite surprised yesterday morning to see it.  I started thinking that the guys had better finish getting the outside decorated for the holidays before more snow starts to accumulate.  I guess they were all thinking the same thing.

Why am I Hanging From a Thread?

Why am I Hanging From a Thread?

Posted by Sharkey

I wanted to see what was going on around the house with all of Martha’s holiday décor.  Laura Acuna has been really busy decorating so I decided to take a little stroll around.  Franny and I will definitely blog about all of that festive stuff, but in the meantime, I wanted to share this little …

A New Friesian for the Farm?

A New Friesian for the Farm?

Posted by Francesca

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.

Examining the Beehives

Examining the Beehives

Posted by Sharkey

We were wandering around the farm the other day, noticing all of the changes going on in preparation for winter.  We don’t usually wander too close to the beehives because when the honeybees are really active, we don’t want to get in their way, if you know what I mean.  But, in cold weather, things …

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

Posted by F&S

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 …

Martha Plants a New Garden to Match GK's Tongue!

Martha Plants a New Garden to Match GK's Tongue!

Posted by Sharkey

You may recall a recent blog where Franny and I found some flower bulbs in the equipment barn and got busy planting a garden.  Well, last week, we discovered an entire film and a camera crew and some Dutch bulb experts working with Martha planting all those bulbs at the allee of lindens.  It was …

Visiting the Japanese Maple Grove

Visiting the Japanese Maple Grove

Posted by Francesca

If you love Japanese Maples, then you know that autumn is when those lovely trees put on an amazing display.  You may recall just over a year ago when Sharkey and I blogged about how we filmed the planting of the grove.  Well, I guess the planting was a big success because the trees seem …
