We took advantage of a break in thunderstorms to do a little alfresco skirting. What a pleasant experience with a background of birdsong, bleating lambs and answering mamas. We were even joined by a beautiful visitor 🙂
We’ve been contemplating keeping Pippen, one of Hera’s triplets, as a breeding ram.
We’ve kept an eye on his progress and he has an excellent health record. We’ve admired his wool during the summer as the triplets took their supplemental bottles.
Still we weren’t quite prepared, when skirting this weekend to find that the extremely beautiful fleece we were working on turned out to be Pippen’s. While we aren’t quite sure that we are happy with the conformation of his rear legs. We sure are excited about the quality of his fleece.
