If feels like forever since I posted. Well, I guess it has been awhile. But, I'm BAAAAAAACK and with a camera. So, to catch up on some of the stuff that's been going on around here. Loved these shots of the kids at 4h meeting the other day. We practiced our herding skills and even had a mini timed trial. They were in teams and had to put the sheep in the barn the fastest and even got extra points if they put them between two obstacles in the yard. I loved this shot of Hubby and Baby Girl, the Oldest flying behind the beasties.
Here, the kids worked as a group to bring the whole herd in off the pasture. They did an excellent job and didn't even leave any strays.
Whoosh, right through the gate.
Gratuitous baby pic! This is Patience. She was born to Grace and Curly Joe on May 4th. Grace's sister, Felicity, had a doe kid who is a sister to this one on the 11th, but I guess I didn't get a picture of her yet. I'll go back out and get one shortly.
And, a fluff piece. These are some batts that Sonny Boy and I carded from a blend of lincoln lamb and kid mohair that we grew right here on the 'Stead. This colorway is called "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" and was part of the samples we sent in for the May Phat Fiber samples. This group of full sized batts went up in the shop today.
