This boy needs a name.
Oreo? No-- A Finn name-- we'll go looking at the Finn name website. Of course there's one.
I've been spinning and knitting with great art-women, a lot--and on Saturday, sat on a Scott County Extension program's Sheep producers' panel-- to give a wool producers' perspective to a bunch of shepherds. Half in the small audience didn't have flocks yet, so they had questions.
The lamb meat breeders had some good tips, too-- we all took home new information.
My house is being insulated, repaired, new doors installed-- it's looking prettier, but the weather's making the job progress slowly. I am pretty happy about everything.
Also, for once, I got a shearing date well in advance, so I can announce it and you can plan to come out to help, if you'd like. April 2nd, a Saturday, Mike Anderson will shear again. Everyone will help skirt and bag fleeces, catch the sheep for shearing, and have a little potluck lunch before heading home in the afternoon. Mark your calendar!
