He Takes Me To Green Pastures

Sad news came today that little Annabelle has passed on. I have to thank the Stark family who took her, problems and all, and gave her the best life a little lamb could ever ask for. I didn't realize the seriousness of her jaw deformity when I gave her to them, but she became a much loved pet for three small children and her best canine friend Norman. Thanks for caring for her.

The Woodstock Fleece Festival turned out to be a huge sucess and was very well attended. There was something for everyone: rug hookers, artists, basketmakers and all sorts of fibre. I'm sure that it will be a great hit again next year. My show schedule for the year is over and I wish to say thanks to all those who organize all these wonderful events and all the people who purchase my fibre and animals and then come back to let me know my lambies are doing well and to show me what they have created with their fibre. Hope to see you all next year.

Woodstock Fleece Festival

The last show for my season is fast approaching. The first Woodstock Fleece Festival in Woodstock Ontario will take place this Saturday, October 17th, at the fairgrounds. Everyone involved on this end has been working very hard to put on a great show. There are 40 vendors for all the fibre connisoeurs as well as great home cooked foood and of course, a small display of fibre animals from local farms. I will be bringing a couple of my bfl cross lambs and a shetland or two. I have included some pictures of my ewe lambs and a close up of the wool. I just can't wait to get spinning. My shetland boys are still outside and growing well. They are all for sale and they have some great genetics behind them. Hope to see you at the festival!
