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.

What?! More Polar Air?! No Way!

Sigh...more polar air is coming.  Next week we are forecast to have several nights nearly 20 degrees below zero in a row.  Really?????  Sigh....

From what I've heard, this winter will smash the records for worst winter ever.  We've done pretty good so far, but it's not easy.  I have a heavy heart.  I'm stalling out my usual Feb. barn activities and schedule so that the flock is the least stressed as possible.

Yesterday, we had pouring rain, thunder, and lightning.  Crazy!  Today, as the colder air moves in, we are getting strong gusts of wind up to 50 mph.

Spring O Spring...where are you?
