woodruff, our ram, originally a 5 horn, down to 4
he wants to be friendly but still isn't sure. i'll win him over!
shearing our 1st sheep. they haven't been sheared in at least a year and this one was the most matted .
our wwooer and greg trimming away...it took all three o' us 2 hours to get her done using 2 hand shears and a leatherman (the saw blade to cut through the dreads).
butchered job but hopefully feeling much better.
turkeys! one disappeared, we are down to three now. no more free range until they are bigger.
what are you looking at?! sheep with attitude.
so far, betony and sassafras won't mingle with the new sheep. hopefully they will all get acquainted soon.
ridge named our great pyr pups thelma and louise.
the trip was great. we got to meet a bunch o' wonderful people (including gina and her beautiful family) and see a lot o' beautiful landscapes through ohio and indiana. i wish we had had the time to travel more slowly and enjoy everything more but i'm grateful we got the time we did. the owners o' the sheep were very nice and we spent saturday morning hanging out with woodruff's previous owners and touring their place.
thank goodness for spell check which helps fill in the blanks.
