Shetland Sheep: Rich in History, Rich in Textiles
Shetland Sheep: Rich in History, Rich in Textiles! Our farm mission is to enjoy and promote the wonderful diversity of the Shetland breed by fully utilizing to the best of our ability all they have to offer historically. We believe the best preservation and management of this breed includes it's full spectrum of history. We encourage old and new shepherds alike to join in the fun by engaging in fiber arts, especially spinning and knitting, as this breed is so intimately linked with those aspects of the arts.

The Farm: Chipmunk Chicks
There are two kinds of people in life: those who despise chipmunks, and those who adore them! I'm an adoring fan of their antics and clever busyness! Therefore, of course I would love chicks that look like chipmunks!
These chicks are from a summer batch we are raising. Having chicks around is great fun, and I love raising them. If you give them what they need to be happy, they will return the care with lots of musical peeps and happiness.
On a different note: I'm trying out a new kind of rain dance...leaving things outside at night that shouldn't get rained on. Hope it works 'cause it seems to always work that way, doesn't it?
Wish me luck.
