Sheep and Wool Workshops

If you have not taken a gander at the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival's workshop offerings this year - take a look:
Please spread the word to anyone who you think may be interested.

This is an AMAZING work of art - not part of the workshop program - but just something at which to marvel. About a gazillion tiny glass beads and counting - all placed by a steady hand.

Meanwhile Back at the Ranchero

This Spring has been extremely hectic for us. We've been to a bunch of Fiber Shows -- Maryland, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Seen a bunch of folks and talked a lot about goats. This is a photo taken about a month ago of our very own "Three Amigos". The only bottle kids this year, who, thankfully are now weaned, grazing and happy.

This is also a picture from a while ago of a group of kids. All different sizes and colors and all much bigger now than that photo shows them to be.

And finally, a kid, well...... just being a kid.

The garden is almost planted - we have a few more rows to go. And soon we will start cutting hay - weather cooperating.

30 or so lambs have been born and are out grazing with the ewes.

We'll take some more up to date photos and hopefully be more faithful to getting some posted here.
