We get by.....

.....with a little help from our friends....

It's been a little humid this summer! When it is a little uncomfy for the sheep this is their favorite spot to stay cool. They lean up against the stone/cement foundation of our old dairy barn- now the sheep barn. We keep fans on 24 hours a day for them and all the windows open to catch any breezes. Aren't they cute?
It's been cooler almost fall like weather lately so the sheep are out hiking a good portion of the day. They are starting to grow their wool so thinking winter (gasp) can't be too far away? Hard to know how to plan any more based on seasons. Also means it will be time to put the sheep's coats on soon! Squeee! Clean wool for EVERYone!
The sheep will be adding some new items to the website Monday, hope you can stop on by! They've been washing lots of naturally colored wool for you to dye too. Yesterday's fleece was Lily's Shetland cross fleece. Silky and soft, 4 inch locks and she wore her coat 6 months of the year so very free of debris. Don't miss out!
Hope summer is treating you well- the sheep send smooches!
