The Art of Extracting Honey

The Art of Extracting Honey

Posted by Sharkey

Well, we finally got around to extracting the honey from the beehives.  Carlos seemed to bee a bit frazzled, so I offered to be of assistance.  The whole process is rather time consuming.  The honey tastes really, really good – very herbal and light.  Thank you honeybees for providing again.

Visiting Sasa After a Snowstorm

Posted by Sharkey

A few days ago, after our last snowstorm, Martha wanted to drive around the farm and take photos for her blog.  Since we had the power of the Kawasaki and its excellent four-wheel drive, I asked Martha to take me to visit Sasa, the new Friesian on the farm.  He’s a really great guy and …

Looking for Beauty on a Dismal Day

Posted by Sharkey

As you may have heard, we’ve had quite a bit of snow here at the farm.  Yesterday, however, was quite a different story because it was raining all day on top of all that snow, making it just pain dismal.  Good thing we Frenchies, don’t need an excuse to curl up and take a nap.  …

If you’ve been following Martha on Twitter, you know that she has been travelling in Columbia and also in Florida.  Finally, she’s coming home and told us that she is craving a homemade vegetable soup.  We, Frenchies, thought it would be nice if that soup was ready and waiting for her, so we got busy.

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 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.

We Modeled in a Fashion Show!

Posted by Francesca

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 …

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 …

Taking Over Martha's Twitter

Taking Over Martha's Twitter

Posted by F&S

If you follow Martha on Twitter, you may have noticed that we, Frenchies, were a bit mischievous the other day.  It all started when we discovered that Martha left for work without her precious Blackberry.  She uses that device for all sorts of things, including posting her Tweets and TwitPics.  The Blackberry had a full …

G.K. Steals the Show, Again!

Posted by Sharkey

Perhaps you all watched Martha’s show when a bunch of us dogs got to wear Halloween costumes?  Well, I was expecting to be the star that day and I was very disappointed when G.K. stole the show.  All Martha wanted to do was focus on sewing his costume and I was just sitting there looking …
