It's about time!

I decided that it was time to update the look of the blog.  Especially since we haven't had any snow for two months and the Title Photo still showed sheep in the snow.  Of course, I have now wasted three-quarters of the day, playing on the computer!!!

I chose the new photo for two reasons.  First of all, because it includes Sable being introduced to Zaria's lambs.  Zaria and Sable have always had a special friendship and since I do a lot of posts about Bluff Country Canine Rescue on here, I figured that I should continue to include Sable in the Title Photograph.   The second reason I chose this photo is because Zaria was bred last fall and I get to chose a lamb to keep!  She probably isn't due until Mid-to-late May, so I've got something to look forward to!

For those of you who used to enjoy Dream's smart-alecky comments on my blog posts, you may enjoy the antics on "Hero's Blog"
It appears that Hero has a similar attitude (and JEALOUSY!) problem as to what Dream had!

Do I miss Dream and Zaria?
Of course I do!
I miss them ALL!

But the dogs help

And the Rescue keeps me incredibly busy.
I still have Kahlua and Tia Maria in the pasture, so I can still go out and sit with the sheep, when ever I want.

I've been doing quite a bit of spinning and needle felting. 
I'll have to do a blog update about that soon.

Right now, I've got to go feed five, HUNGRY dogs!

    Do sheep generally have more than one baby? You said you get to keep one? Somehow I always thought they were single birthers.

  3. Mature Shetlands often twin and fairly frequently even have triplets. Ewes bred the year they were born typically have single births but I've had a number of them that had twins and did just fine with them. That's one of the advantages of the "Primitive" breeds.

    Gorgeous photos of Zaria, babies, and Sable and of the dogs and Tia. Can hardly wait to see Zaria's lambs and the others! Maybe Mimosa and her Zaria will lamb about the same time...a mother/daughter thing. I think Mia lambed very close to exactly a year after she was born.

    In another matter, did Dazzle ever have a ewe lamb? Just wondering--I don't recall any.
