Betsy Got a New Computer!

Posted by F&S

Betsy’s new computer arrived for her stable office and we, Frenchies, wanted to deliver it and help her set it up, seeing that we’re computer savvy and all.  New computers are so exciting and this one is especially so.  We also heard that Martha got a brand new iPad and now we’re wondering when ours …

Grooming a Horse is a Big Job!

Grooming a Horse is a Big Job!

Posted by Sharkey

In my attempt to be ever helpful, I went down to the stables the other day because I heard that it was grooming time for Meindert.  Unlike my little Frenchie body, a horse is quite a large thing to groom and I wanted to help Betsy out.  It took a while, but I got the …

The Chicken Show

Franny was still taking a nap when I got up from mine and felt like reading.  I noticed a stack of new books in the kitchen.  Much to my surprise, they were all about chickens and other types of poultry.  These books were quite eye opening and I have a whole new appreciation for these …

Swinging is a Blast!

Swinging is a Blast!

Posted by Sharkey

We were out and about with Uncle Carlos the other day when we came upon a playground, which had swings for kids.  Franny and I started wondering, why should kids have all the fun?  Why not dogs, too?  It turns out that swinging is a blast and Franny even started reciting poetry.  I think I’ll …

Sharkey and I were very surprised the other day when we found so much food in the kitchen.  There were bowls of this and trays of that and we could not imagine what it was all to be used for.  Much to our surprise, little G.K., who is not so little anymore, informed us that …

Laura Acuna was really busy the other day, polishing all of Martha’s silver, in preparation for a big dinner party.  Martha has been collecting silver for many years and much of it is quite old and beautiful.  We, Frenchies, thought it would be a good idea to help Laura out.  Of course, our minds started …

Hey Donkeys!  It's Spring!

Hey Donkeys! It's Spring!

Posted by Sharkey

Spring is in the air and that makes me so happy.  I decided to trot around the farm and tell all of my friends the good news, thinking that everyone would be as enthusiastic as I am.  Little did I know that the donkeys have their own opinions about warm weather.

Hard Work Pays Off

Hard Work Pays Off

Posted by Francesca

With the arrival of spring, there are so many chores to do around the farm.  You probably know by now that Martha likes to blanket the farm with burlap to protect things from the wind and cold.  Sharkey and I like to help out by removing the burlap from the boxwood hedges.  Come and see …

Happy Spring!

As you know, we Frenchies, really love our couture. However, nothing beats going outdoors with just our birthday suits and feeling that warm sun on our furry backs. Quite suddenly, the cold temperatures disappeared and we were blessed with a stretch of really pleasantly warm and sunny days. And also quite suddenly, …

When you live on a farm, there are many chores to do.  Shaun, the gardener, has been really busy with his crew, getting the grounds all spruced up for spring.  Franny and I decided to explore the berry patch the other day and saw that it was really overgrown.  Berries need a good pruning every …
