That's Enough of That...

Poor Dreamer!
My wonderful Shetland sheep have been SO neglected!
It's my friend Katie W.'s fault.  She's been coming down to my place to help me build pens and condos and perches and roosts and all sorts of stuff for my chickens
Which seem to have taken over my HOUSE!!!

Talk about fresh eggs:
We aim to please our mail-order customers!
Enough about the chickens, let's talk Shetland Sheep!

Sable continues to mingle with the flock, daily, and shows neither fear nor aggression toward our woolly friends.  It's too bad the same thing can't be said for the sheep!

In this photo, Destiny is planning Sable's demise...
Someone left a comment on an earlier post about Zorro being in with ALL of the ewes...

They were right! 
Zorro (shown here whispering sweet nothings into Dream's ear!)  decided that he was going to tear down my fences if I didn't let him in with the rest of the ewes and since I'm not big on repairing fences and he's really NOT mine to sell, Zorro got his wish.  There will be LOTS of lambs in the Bluff Country in 2010 after all!  This will be a strange lambing season since I didn't even put my first (unplanned) breeding group together until late December.  We'll be having lambs from late May to early July!!!

ALL of the lambs born this summer will have to be sold as I simply can not care for any more sheep than I have right now, so start thinking of what you might like to add to YOUR flock ithis summer...

I also have fleeces and rovings for sale now and will have many more to come.

Contact me  for availability of colors!

DREAM says:
..." (get out of my spot, Flash Dance!) "
 "A $50.00, non-refundable deposit will reserve your choice of the beautiful 2010 lambs!  Make your deposit today so that you can have the lamb of your dreams (maybe even one of MINE!)  from the Bluff Country"...

Good idea, Dreamer!!!

  5. It's nice to see a sheepy blog again :) I'm sad I'll miss the lambs, but VERY HAPPY to be coming home soon!!! A girl just misses her Mama sometimes :)

    ...Oh, and to all the other commenters, todays is Nancy's Birthday!!! (Great gift idea??? Buy a lamb ;) Ok if not, I can personally vouch for her AMAZING shawls and scarves :) )

  6. Wow, Sable is really growing up! Can't believe that's the same little puppy you first showed us.
    And Zorro is gorgeous - but not quite as beautiful as you, Dream!
