New Lamb, Old Wool

The sheep are getting sheared today! Woohoo!


  1. Hope none of them get their legs broken;)

  2. I know after watching my friend's sheep getting sheared, there will be sheep dancing everywhere today!

  3. oooooh What a sweet baby and cute "nest." Do you keep some of your wool for spining? if you don't have enough to do.

  4. This reminds me, I really need a haircut.

  5. Hey there --

    I'm wondering the same thing as ml/tx... What do you do with the wool?

    Sooo cute!

  6. I'm suffering from Cary withdrawal syndrome. How's the girl doing? Any new pictures?

  7. I spin, and am VERY interested in what you do with your wool!!!

  8. My friend's wife once raised sheep, sheared the sheep, carded the wool and spun yarn, and knit him a sweater. Of course, this was before they were married.

    Of course, she also casterated the rams!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions.
