This Plume poppy is taking over the yard. It is the one plant the sheep don't eat through the fence.
Brooklyn loves the dress she wore for my brother Jay's wedding! She wears in almost everyday. She thinks it makes her look like a pincess. Which of course she is.
I wish you could see her in full fleece. She is really pretty.
This is what her yarn looks like. I wish the picture was better. You would never know this yarn came from that sheep. I'm going to try and knit a gansey sweater for John. If I ever get it all spun up.

John says I have way to many sheep. (I think he needs to talk to Mary Ellen.)
This is Opal. She is a very nice ewe that usually always has ewe lambs. She is quiet and well mannered. I am keeping 3 of her ewe lambs one from last year and two from this year, she always out does herself and has lambs that are good quality with wonderful wool.
I am keeping 5 ewe lambs this year so 5 adults have to go. I've sold 2 so I have to come up with 3 more. I have decided on Opal only because I'm keeping 3 of her daughters. I have to come up with 2 more. It's really hard to decide. Opal is for sale for $250.00.
It has been really nice outside these last few days. I had Britta outside and Seth kept trying to get her to throw his frisbe. Kallie is really growing fast. I'm not sure if I like the prick ears. I've heard that sheep are more afraid of the prick ears than the floppy ones. Maybe that's what My Shetlands need is to be alittle more afraid. They really have no respect for poor Seth. He can work the cattle really well, and the rams but my ewes just have no time for him.

It has been really hot here. Yesterday I was late opening the Emporium. Angela had the biggest bull calf I've ever seen. I had to help pull the calf. I'll take pictures of her and the calf tonight when I get home. He is so cute. Poor Angela I'm surprised she even got bred. I'll have to check her registration papers but I think she was born in 1989 which would make her 18 years old. Kallie and Seth play alot now. It's really fun to watch the old man play with the little puppy.

|You Are a Ring Finger|
You are romantic, expressive, and hopeful. You see the best in everything.
You are very artistic, and you see the world as your canvas. You are also drawn to the written word.
Inventive and unique, you are often away in your own inner world.
You get along well with: The Pinky
Stay away from: The Index Finger
