2016 Update

January 30th brought a lot of rain all at once but still not an end to the California drought

March was shearing time, fleece, lots and lots of fleece

Shearing staff taking a break

Not much time for the shearer to take a break

One of the three Finns getting sheared

and one lone Babydoll Southdown after shearing

if you look close in my weed patches you might find some flowers

Shetlands started lambing April 9th, here is Clara and her ram lamb.

This morning Ousto also lambed, two black ram lambs.

And waiting her turn is Ollie, hope there is a ewe lamb or two in there.

How green is my valley ...........


Hoping all my friends in Blog land are well and enjoying spring, for those areas making the news with still getting snow or hail the size of golf balls there is still some open space in California.
