Readying For The Woodstock Fleece and Fibre Festival

I can't believe how quickly this year is passing and how busy my husband and I have been with the farm and our life. My granddaughter will be 2 in a few weeks and they will soon be welcoming another little soul into this world. After remaining thin as fence posts all summer, my ewes are growing fat and are covered in thick beautiful wool in preparation for winter. They have been enjoying some really nice hay and all the apples they can eat from our apple trees. The dogs are enjoying the cooler weather and have been playing in the empty pastures. Gil and I were off to Edys Mills to have the rams fleeces washed and ready for the Fibre Festival. The event will take place on October 23rd at the Oxford Auditorium in Woodstock, Ontario. Lots of events are planned and it should be a great day. Enjoy the pics.
