Nothing new or exciting happening in the Bluff Country.
Although, I did make some new friends this weekend! A couple of gals from my area came over to meet me and my flock and to spin. They even bought a bunch of fleece and some roving and yarn! Best of all, I've got two, new friends who love sheep and LIVE NEAR BY!! The one gal ~ "Lynn" also raises sheep and I can't wait to go visit her flock. She's got several different breeds and is also breeding up Gotlands! I'll be visiting her farm soon...
In the meantime. I burned the ditch that was so full of weeds, yesterday. Got it done before the winds kicked up and it's supposed to rain for the next few days so I'm very glad that I got that done. I'll be fencing it in to use for pasture this year.
Zaria so loves to have her neck scratched! When I scratch her withers, she returns the favor by scratching my arm with her teeth! I wanted to show my new friends her beautiful fleece, but the little shit wouldn't let me catch her when strangers were here! GRRRR!
Here's another close up of her fleece. Lynn & Jean were very impressed by the fleece on my flock and I wanted to let them feel Zaria's because it is the softest and silkiest. Lynn and Jean had to settle for looking at pictures. And I was so miffed at Zaria that I assured them that they weren't missing anything ~ "she has fleece like steel wool" anyway! (NOT!!)
Reading other blogs this morning, reminds me that Hunter is starting to lose fleece and I want to get out there an try rooing him! If it's not raining and I can manage to do it myself, I'll post some pictures tomorrow...
"Have a HAPPY day!"
