Sheep baby season is supposedly over. A young ram was found among the ewes the last time we checked udders, so there might be a few surprises. The lamb above is a two week old bottle baby. Pretty sure the young Shetland ram is her papa due to type of hair on her legs. She has the Merino style fiber in a charcoal gray. The only lamb born that color this year.
I only bred five red angora goats this year due to my injury. The goats will deliver in late May. I am still dealing with the ankle (got CRPS) and will likely always have a certain amount of pain. They finally determined after five months that the issue with my left hand has to do with a damaged nerve in my elbow area. I will be having surgery on June 15th. There are chances of more CRPS, but I am slowly losing use of my left hand and this will hopefully stop it and cut the pain.
In the meantime, I am busy spinning, creating batts and preparing for the MDSWF in May and for an open house here at the farm on June 4-5. If the weather is nice, my husband will give farm tours. The shop will be open and I will be glad to see anyone stop in. My travels are limited since I cannot drive yet.Read More
