Ready to roll!
Poor Blackberry; it's like he's being weaned all over again. Good thing he has a low, throaty yell instead of an even more annoying high-pitched one!
As scheduled, Beau's and Boo's new owners arrived this morning with spiffy new halters and lead ropes for their two new fiber pets (Rocky Sheep Suits are on order). I am thrilled to be able to place them in such eager and loving hands, and expect to get lots of updates on Brava's boys. There's even a possibility of another sheep leaving Boulderneigh once Beau and Boo get their "hoo-ha-ectomies;" Dinah may retire from breeding there, opening up a spot for a finer-fleeced poll-carrier ewe here.
But that's not really the sheep "comings" I was talking about in the title. I have my eye on two new ewes already, and wouldn't even need to wait to make room. And the cost to ship them here is quite reasonable. Check out Romi's new shawl pin designs!Don't they look like wooly Shetlands? When she came out with a handsome ram (see him here), I HAD to buy him for myself, even though I have no shawls to use him on. Now I want the rest of her flock! I'd better cast on a shawl or two, quick.
That's it for now at . . .
