|I marvel at the tiny humming birds. How can that tiny bird eat so much? I mix up 4 cups of nectar every day and they drink it all. We have about 10 plus little hummers eating at our feeders.|
|They were buzzing around me as I took pictures. They were so close to me...then I noticed that they were diving at the newly dyed wool that I had just brought out to dry...they were attracted to the magenta pink wool .|
|Are they so unique?|
|I dyed 3 fleeces, this one was about 1/3 magenta and 2/3 fleece of chestnut and autumn.|
|This ram lamb is out of Big Bertha and Liam, BFL. He was a twin and fast grower. He is beautiful and I would like to sell him to someone that needs a ram with good fiber and fast growing. He should get pretty big.|
|This little finch was after the thistle seeds.|
|Macy Sue and Sadie are buddies and enjoy playing together.|
|Big Betha enjoying the new green grass. Look at the wool growing on these girls.|
|I have a few Shetland/BL crosses. I love working with their wool. It is long and has a luster. |
These crosses are long with straight backs and they have beautiful lambs when they are bred to Liam, my BFL ram.
|BL mule/BFL cross.|
|These ram lambs are really looking good.|
|Macy thinks she has to go where ever I go. She loves to hunt and big Sadie and Steiner go with her.|
She makes me laugh with her actions. She also loves to be loved and wants to be close to me where ever I am.
|Sadie is just waiting for me to call her to me for some hugs.|
|Lady comes to me but she is not as outgoing as her sister, Sadie. Her head is larger and she has black eye|
make up around both eyes. She loves the lambs.
|Remember the ewe that I thought was dying? Here is Isabel today, doing great with her|
lamb, Hot Shot. Look how big he is. He was born in the heat of summer on July 5th.
|We are so thankful for the green grass and so are the sheep.|
|The sheep are looking good. We fed grain and some hay during the drought so that the ewes could be healthy|
at breeding time.
|I love Blue Bird, Isn't she pretty.|
|I love old Cinnamon. She had twins this year. She was bred by Sammy, the Cheviot ram and her lambs|
are below...they are quit, hearty, and have gained so well and fast.
|I love their little top knots.|
|Another one of Sammy's offspring. They are all little characters.|
|This is Birdie's girl from last year. Her mother is 1/2 Oxford and 1/2 Bl, a daughter of Bonnie and White Knight. I love her wool and her build. She will be put in with Liam, BFL ram.|
|Look at her wool.|
|I can't wait to get my fingers in her fleece next Spring.|
