Baby Dreaming...........

Looking back at my pictures from last year, I am reminded of how wonderful lambing time is. This is Blizzard at about 5 minutes old. It is amazing how strong the bond she and her mother have is. They sleep cuddled up together and are never more than one "baaa" apart. It is wonderful!

Like Mother ... Like Daughter

Look at this little cutie. This is Blizzard ( left ). She reminded me of a picture I took of her mother, Madeline, (above) two years ago. Blizzard was the first lamb born on our farm last spring ... of course I had to keep her! :)

What kid doesn't like to sled? But how many sled in a paddock full of sheep? :)
Well my kids all sled on the ridge ...with the sheep. Yeah! Winter is here!

Well, here it is!

Now look at the pictures in my last post and you'll see where my inspiration came from! Of course Millie is white, but I needed to break up the the colors a bit ... and I do have a brown Romney, Lucy.

Now I need to finish the trim and add the buttons on the front. I plan to add one of my Babydoll Southdowns and maybe Joe to the front panels.

Stay tuned! :)

The temperature is 40 degrees. Has winter forgotten us? I keep looking at my shop ( which I closed in Dec for lack of heat ) and thinking I could be open. I have plenty of yarns and goodies for sale on my website, but I so love sharing my sheep with my customers and having them put a face on the yarns that they buy. Lambing is only three months away now. I cannot wait to watch those babies hopping around the paddock. Our new barn will be complete and new fences up in no time. I have missed the snow covered ridge, the frosted sheep, and the duck tracks in the snow. Ducks slide down hills in the winter you know ... I have seen them.

I took this shot of Mabel whose name means " a thing of beauty". Wouldn't you agree?
