Today’s shearing was, well, let’s just say different. This gals coat was so coarse and also some mats that I decided it wasn’t worth keeping. SO, my neighbor Cathy, my trusty helper, and I had fun. It was so liberating! After years of careful cutting, so as not to snip that curl in the wrong spot, and to keep the curls intact, we were able to be free. Free to cut a swath of curls if it was giving us a problem. Free to simply toss the curls on the ground. It was so cool. Better not happen again, mind you, but for one time, it was awesome. She appears to be pregnant as well.
Had my nebulizer picked up for me, but haven’t tried it yet. I hate some new things. Spun a skein of colorful yarn and took pictures today. Here are a few. First, here is the Teeswater fleece I talked about. Next will be the Wensleydale.Now for the Wensleydale
The Munchkins, the yearling boys, are not too sure about their new pen. It’s huge and not near any other goats so they hang out at the gate because it’s close to where they used to be. I’m thinkin they even sleep there instead of in the ‘house’.
Today was rather uneventful. I’ll take that kind of day. I sat in the Pretties pen for a bit today to get to know the new girls more. They are inching closer to me. Going to try Peanuts as a friend has suggested. Well, who knows what tomorrow will bring, but hopefully it will include shearing a goat! And hopefully it will be cool in the morning, as it was NOT this morning. I am blessed in every way, every day. Signing off at Curly Locks Ranch.
