Spring Lambs Growing Up

My BFL cross Shetland lambs and my shetland lambs are growing wonderfully this year and all of them have fleeces to die for.  All but my two ewe lambs are for sale.  The boys are very quiet and friendly and would make a great addition to any flock.  Get in touch if you are interested.  The shetland boys both have great looking horns and on is a grey gulmoget and the other is a spotted musket.  Sire was River Glen Artemis.

Home From a Holiday

Well I have been home for a week now and am slowly getting settled back into my routine at home.  My husband and myself and a few of our friends went to England for a two week and much needed holiday.  Unfortunately my husband and I got a little more time abroad as his father passed away.  It was nice to be there for the funeral and for his mom and sister, who had come all the way from Australia.  We don't get to see Trish often and despite the circumstances, we were able to have quite a nice visit.  It was warm enough this trip to enjoy Lym Regis in its full splendor and dip our toes in the ocean.  My youngest son tookcare of    the animals and dogs while we were away and it was nice not to have any worries.  I noticed a big change in England this time.  I hadn't been there for 17 years and it seemed a much calmer and happier place this trip.  Everyone was super friendly and driving wasn't as hectic either.  All in all I can't wait to return.  Enjoy the pics.
