August 2015

Jeepers! I've missed a whole month of posting.
I guess its just because we've been so busy.
 We put a new roof on the barn.

Fenced in another 20 acres of pasture. 

New additions this year from Sheltering Pines Shetland Sheep Farm.

Sheltering Pines Sarabande and ewe lamb
Sheltering PInes Sarabande ewe lamb "Princes Leia"
Sheltering Pines Sonatina, ewe lamb "Snapshot"

We also purchased 3 Silver Fox bunnies. A buck and two does.
Very friendly bunnies and very sociable.

June 2015

Shearing day has finally arrived. Master Shearer Dave Kier arrived a bit later this year, but with all the wet weather this year it can't be helped. 38 shetlands sheared in an hour and half, and all went smoothly. We are so blessed to have Dave as our shearer.

Lambing season is coming to an end. Still have 3 more ewe's to go before final count. The weather has finally warmed up and the grass is starting to grow. We put some of the first born lambs and ewe's out and they are enjoying running and playing.
