My New Babies

My new additions finally stood still long enough for me to take pictures of them.The white one on the left is a little cross bred ram. When you look at him in real life he looks like a tiny Alpaca. Wonderful fiber and wonderful personality. His name is So What. And his name fits him. So what if that sheep is bigger than me. I can still give her a kiss. So what if  that water dish is bigger than me, I can still walk in it.So what if that feed pail is bigger than me, if I do it right I can wear it on my head like a hat. So you see, his name fits him. The brown one on the right is little Sophie. She's a natural colored Romney with wonderful fleece. Her color will be a great addition to my flock. She's a little on the timid side yet but she is learning the ropes. She knows that as soon as I come out in the morning the gate comes open and all the babies get to come out. Right to the garage they head and they snoop around while I get the feed ready. She now is the first one out and standing by the grain bin. Someday soon I hope she will come up on her own for scratches. The next one I got from Shelly is a white Romney ewe named Sammie. I'll have to post her picture tonight because off to work I have to go. What a rude interruption of my day. Quite alright though because I get to make cheese. Until tonight.....

Linda - both of your babies are just beautiful. And I love the look of their fleece. You're gonna have a lot of spinning to do. I'm spending the day working on a small afghan throw for a friend's dog. If I stick with it, I can finish it today, and then mail it off to her tomorrow. I sure love the look of your Romneys. That little bit of wool on their foreheads is just too cool, and the natural color is wonderful as well. I'm still looking for a place to rent in Casey Co, but have some leads. I need to make some phone calls today to some folks to see if they have anything to rent. Sooner or later, I'll get there. I have till the end of Sept till my lease ends here, so have a little bit of time to find just the right place. I'm glad Kristi came over here for a visit - she's a hoot! And has a really nice looking farm. Hope today goes OK with work for you today. Take care, from KY.
