We also made a trip to Michigan for a week. I started washing wool again after we got home. I purchased a pattern and the beads to make a very pretty scarf while in Michigan. I plan to spin some very soft and thin yarn to dye for this scarf....I also plan to get more fleeces ready to sell.
Last Friday night about 3 am, I was woke up by Sadie and Lady barking, I jumped up and ran to the door and heard a lamb baaing and it was being taken across the road and into the hay field by a predator, coyote probably. I was so upset, got in the pickup, hoping to catch the thief and kill it but could never see it in the very tall grasses. This lamb was taken from a pen just across the driveway right in front of our house. I make the sheep stay in the barn during the night and won't let them out into the big field. I am so upset! I love nature and animals but I will repeat myself...the government owns millions of acres of land...if you want to see these mean critters...go to the parks that should have big tall fences to keep them in. I have not got a good night sleep since this incident. I have the guns loaded, my son came over and set some snares to help me catch the thief. I feel so voilated.
Then night before last, Mother Nature hit again. I woke up to rain, wind, and hail hitting the house and then I heard a roar like a train, I woke Danny up, and turned on the weather radio..we could see the trees laying way over in the wind and temp dropped to 62 degrees. We knew when it got daylight that we would find damage.
