Enjoying The Sunshine

The weather here has just been crazy: one minute warm and the next day cold. When we started shearing last Sunday, the sun was out and it was above freezing. When we came out of the barn at 3 there was 4 inches of snow on the ground. Of course it rained the next day and then everything was green again. The sheep have adjusted well to lo

sing their coats and have been acting like lambs outside, running and kicking up their heels. They gave me lots of beautiful fibre and I am off to the mill with it on Friday.
