And we sold a dozen of our ewes – yearlings and proven two-year-olds. Many, many thanks to the McComb family for making the trip from Marlinton to buy some of our girls. We are so excited that they are going to a handspinner’s flock. We hope they will love the fleeces the girls produce and enjoy spinning them as much as we do!
As many weekends are… this was a very busy weekend on the farm. We moved the yearlings and the older ewes back to the granddaddy green by the barn. It is so great to have them back at the barn, if only for a little while. In a couple weeks we will move them to a paddock where they will have access to one of the hayfields during the day. We also moved the rams to a new paddock… inching slowly towards breeding season.
Took Raven into the woods after doing a little work with the goat boys, and flushed that blasted fox. It took off up over the hill through the graveyard field.
Celebrated Mom’s birthday… Happy Birthday, once again, Mom! Great-granddaughter Harley is ready to help blow out the twenty candles she counted to put on the cake.
