Anyway, I did snap some photos of a couple of the girls the other day when I was snoggling sheep. Blaise was suspicious of my motives and kept her distance, but that made it easier to "capture" her.
Bree, on the other hand, didn't care what I did as long as I kept stroking her. She and her baby sister are such love bugs!
Today the sheep and I had guests. A couple with one of the first Shetland flocks west of the Mississippi blessed us with a visit. We talked sheep, bloodlines, fleece types, micron test results, colors, and got our hands on every fleece on the place – on and off the sheep. They are getting some new fine-fleeced stock from the Midwest and East, and the possibility of sharing genetics is exciting to both of us. Can't count our lambs before they're born, much less before they're conceived, but making the connection with these nice people was worth it in and of itself. :-D
