Early Spring

We celebrated Blossom's first birthday & sheared on January 23rd. Blossom has grown into a lovely little ewe, despite the really rough start that she had last year. In every way she appears to be a healthy and happy girl, and was very proud to get her first haircut. She is looking forward to being “auntie” to all the little lambs that will be born over the next month or so.



We chose to shear a little earlier this year for a few different reasons. Weather in this part of the country has been mild, the ewes will be more inclined to spend time inside the barn, and without the mommies' coat of wool, the new lambies will have a pretty easy time finding teats. The sheep are all coated, so that does provide some warmth for them as well. If you are interested in fleeces, email me at yvonne(dot)m(at)comcast(dot)net


Our eight hens go on a little sabbatical from laying eggs in the short winter days with fewer hours of sunshine. We choose not to force the issue by providing extra light in their coop during those days, so we are always delighted when they begin their production again. There's nothing quite like the feel of eggs, still warm from the hens, in my hands. The kids call them “just-got-laid eggs”.


On the knitting front, I am still finishing Christmas knitting. No photos right now because I don't want to spoil a surprise.

Yvonne, what fun. So glad Blossom is doing so well. She's a beauty, and so are your eggs (we've got chicks coming next week!)

We were hoping to hold off on shearing until the end of the month, but The Shepherd has just discovered that Moni is a LITTLE bit farther along than he thought. She'll be getting sheared this weekend. He's supposed to be gone next weekend to a church meeting in Seattle. I told him "I don't know nuthin about burthin no babies" - so she'd better pop out those little lambies before he leaves. (especially since she was the one who lost her babies last year...)
