What's bigger than a bread box and quite handy when you own animals? A trailer, of course. We were lucky to get a new to us trailer for hauling our sheep and ducks from place to place. It has already been put to good use.
From my interests in fibre, I have met many other shepherds and all of our goals are to raise happy healthy animals that give us lovely fibre to spin. I have been working over the past few years to increase the softness and fineness of my shetland sheep while maintaining the breed standard of a well built hardy self sufficient animal that grows well and has few problems at lambing time. I am starting to see the fruits of my labour pay off this year and have been able to launch a line of shetland wool products called HOPEFUL SHETLAND, all from my own animals.
