New Barn!

Santa brought me a barn for Christmas! My husband and I worked all Christmas day putting 14 posts in the ground. There is no frost in the ground and we are thankful! Whoda' thought we'd be digging holes on Dec 25th!
I raked, washed water buckets, trimmed wool around eyes, and did other various "springtime" chores on Christmas day. Of course I always go out to the paddock armed with my camera and I took this great picture of Lucy and her daughter Belle ... before I trimmed around Belle's eyes. :)

Also, here is a picture of the beautiful English Mastiff that we adopted. We are soooo blessed to have her. Matilda is one-year-old now, and the perfect guard/family dog. We are just in love with her. Don't ever be afraid to come and visit us, she will welcome you to our farm. What a sweetie.

As I am new to this "blogging thing" I am still learning how it all works. I discovered you ( my visitors) can subscribe to my updates by clicking on the "Subscribe to posts" button below. So please ... subscribe! :) I have been getting quite a few calls and e-mails from folks wanting to reserve lambs and this will be a good way for you to keep updated.

So far all pure registered Babydoll Southdown lambs are spoken for. But please consider a cross. I kept two of last year's lambs Belle ( pictured in my last post with snow on her face ) and Blizzard. Both have remained small and are sweet, friendly little girls. Belle's mom is a Romney and Blizzard's is a Correidale. Their dad is Joker my Olde Babydoll Southdown ram. They are showing attributes of both their parents fleeces ... NICE! You can take a look at both of them as well as their mothers on my farm website go to the Our Farm page. Lambing will begin in March!

Happy Holidays!!

15 days till Christmas! We had our first snow Friday. It was beautiful. So peaceful in the paddock ... and quiet.

I have finally found time to create an online store on my website. Please visit and take a look at the unique, one-of-a-kind yarns, hand-knits and felted items. I will continue to add more products as time allows.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and peaceful Holiday season.
