Meet "Little Red Oak Serendipity" Sera came home to live in the Bluff Country yesterday. She is exquisite. I purchased her from Gail VonBargen and Gail let me choose her name. I gave it a lot of thought because I want the name to somehow symbolize all that has happened in the past few months and the new beginning that is about to take place at Bluff Country Shetlands.

Sera didn't make the trip alone... If I'm "starting over", I need a new ram. Don't cha think??? This handsome fellow is "Kimberwood Hunter". Hunter was bred by Kim Nikolai, of Kimberwood Shetlands and traces back to my lines. Alice is his great-grand dam! Hunter is a fawn or mioget, HST who has the most luscious fleece and is just a sweetie!

Sera and Hunter will spend some time in "quarantine" before mingling with my flock. That also gives me time to befriend Sera (Hunter is already a charmer) and halter train them both.
DREAM says.... ..."Good Luck with that, Mom! We all know those 'brown factored' lambs are a little slow to learn....."


  1. Double congratulations -- they are exquisite!

  2. Gorgeous, gorgeous sheep!

    Obviously, you are wasting no time with your new beginning. Good for you! I'll look forward to the halter lessons as I just ordered a handful of rope halters myself and could use some coaching.


  3. Nancy what kind of camera do you have? I NEED one like that one! Congrats on the new lambs! They sure are pretty!

  4. Congratulations, Nancy...I'm very happy to see that things are looking up!

    We never ended up connecting on the little black lambie's it still available? or were there other fleeces you were planning on selling? I'm partial to black, but might be open to learning to dye...

    I just bought a pair of combs, so I'm all psyched about learning to process a fleece. Wheeee!!!

    Dream is just a sweetpea...what a face!

  5. Yeah, Nancy, what kind of camera do you use, the one that makes all the sheep look more beautiful? I never got Juicyfruit, I mean Serendipity! to look that good! You have many true talents! I am so glad you like your little lamb from Little Red Oak, and Kimberwood Hunter is fabulous, without question.
    It was nice to see you, and I am happy you have a new view of the future!

  6. Lee Ann ~ I'll e-mail you about the fleeces. We'll get you that black one. ;-)

    My camera is an ancient (2001) Canon PowerShot A20. It's only got 2.1 megapixals and a 3x zoom lens. I love it! It's been a work horse. I always use it in "auto" mode and I am always amazed at the quality of pictures that it takes. One day (soon?), I'll be needing a new camera and when that day comes, I'll definitely get another Canon.

  7. It's not the camera, it's the photographer ;)!

  8. How wonderful to add these two beauties to your flock, Nancy! And we are tickled at the prospect of your keeping Bluff Country where it is! Although Skittles said that he always knew you'd be able to stay there - and he wants to know how his mother is doing? :)


  9. That didn't sound right, I meant that it's the photographer that takes great pictures....not that it's the photographer that's ancient!!
