Good Morning From the Bluff Country!


It's a BEAUTIFUL morning in the Bluff Country! I sat with the girls for a few minutes this morning. Got this nice shot of Prima Dona grazing next to a large thistle plant. Yes, I know I need to chop it down. Believe it or not it is the ONLY one in the paddock.

I was trying to get some photos of Flash Dance and Dazzle with their droopy, dew-laden fleece but they would NOT cooperate! They just keep running up to me. Kind of hard to complain too much about that problem...

Prima Dona also found this gone-to-seed blade of grass to hide behind, in my otherwise short, well groomed pasture!

I think I'll cut a fresh bouquet of Daisies and Purple Cone Flowers for my desk at work today.

Dream says...

"Why don't you come up and SEE me sometime???"

Hi Nancy...wanted to introduce myself....I live in NH and raise Shetlands and have a beautiful new ram lamb that I bought from Shula (in Massachusetts)...his sire is out of your lines (Dream something..it just isn't coming right now!)I love following your blog and "seeing" your sheep....love them! They are really nice! My Xander is a black krunet ram and his fleece is exquisite...hope to use him on quite a few ewes this Fall.

  3. Hi Nancy! I have some goats that would deal with that thistle for you in no time at all! Love the pictures, especially the one with the grass seed head. Beautiful.

  6. Welcome, Donna! That would be "Dream Weaver"! He's Dream's first ram lamb. A gorgeous boy, I do recall....

    Can't wait to see Dream's Grand babies!!

    Thank you, Claire, Christine and Katie!

    Sara, I cut TWO HUGE vases full of Daisies! One for at work and one for at home. I love having my own, fresh-cut flowers! And the Daisies last SO long....
