Happy Birthday!





Monty is two weeks old today. He is 3/4 Blue Faced Leicester and 1/4 Border Leicester. Mom, Monna is first time mom and very attentive.



This is Daisy and her son, Daegan. She and Dad, Kayman are CVM ( California Variagated Mutants) Daegan will be  a colored Romeldale as he is not badgered faced. They are a fine wooled sheep with multiple colors. Boy oh boy, did I learn when the description of the CVM were aggressive did I learn my lesson. Being used to Border Leicester and Blue Faced Leicester Rams that were so nice during breeding season. Then there is Kayman who will seek you out from across the paddock running with the pace of a cheetah and all you can do is hang on for the tackle! OUCH!

Meet Skylark

Skylark is the very first corridale lamb here. She was born during the cold weather. She had a twin boy whom, sadly we lost. She makes me smile when I see those ears and the oh so soft fiber she will be producing.

Isabella, my girl


I miss you everyday. Even though you were 12 it is never time to say goodbye. I got you from a shelter and you paid me back ten times fold. You and I spent our first year together while your other new friend was what seemed like many worlds away in Iraq. You were there when no one else was. You kept my sanity. You gave me a reason to keep going. 

Izzy, you could chase that tennis ball all day. I will always miss you. There is an empty space on the floor by my feet that will never be replaced. You were a good girl. Thank you for everything you gave me.
