G.K. the Tech Dog

G.K. the Tech Dog

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

I was visiting Susie in her office in the stable when she told me that she was having problems with the copier machine.  You may not know this about me, but I’m something of a tech guru.  Susie and Maureen looked doubtful when I volunteered my services, but they were soon very impressed.

Too Much Snow For Sharkey!

Too Much Snow For Sharkey!

Posted by F&S

As Martha wrote about on her blog today, we were hit hard with another snowstorm.  We Frenchies wanted to go outside and explore, so we donned our beautiful new white snow parkas.  Of course, we had no idea how deep the snow was and things got a little dicey.

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 …

Hey, everyone, G.K. here!  I’ve been reading all of your comments and have taken notice that I have been missed.  Well, it’s a little hard stealing the limelight from Francesca and Sharkey, but, sometimes, like today, I succeed.  I thought you’d like to know a bit of history about Chow Chows.  Did you know that …

G.K. and I were outside the other day when it started to snow again!  This has been quite a winter, so far.  I was concerned about the donkeys out there in their paddock so G.K. and I trekked out through the snow to pay them a visit.

The farm crew has been really busy with all of their winter chores and one of them is winter pruning.  As you know, we have several apple trees and it’s really important to cut back last year’s new growth in order to stimulate the fruit-bearing limbs.  Pruning the apple trees means you have lots of …

A Welcome Home Soup for Martha

A Welcome Home Soup for Martha

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.

Sharkey and I have blogged quite a bit about all the snow that we’ve gotten at the farm.  Snow is really kind of fun, if it doesn’t cascade from a roof on top of you.  While we were scouting around the other day, we came upon some snow saucers and hopped on board.  Have a …

Woops!  With all of the holiday excitement, followed by the blizzard, we, Frenchies, forgot these photos were on the memory card in our camera.  We meant to post them before Christmas, but better late, than never, right?

Yesterday, Franny kind of kept you hanging about what we, Frenchies, would find next on our little adventure around the farm after the blizzard.  She ended the blog as we were headed towards the stable to visit our friends there.  Let me just say that after a heavy snow, you just can’t be too careful …
