Ewes, July 2007

Here are my ewes from upper left to right: Gem, Ginger, Felicity, Nala, Star, Togepi, and Midnight.

New Pasture mates for the sheep

This beautiful Doe and her fawn have found the ewes pasture to their liking.

Attention New Spinners!!!

I highly recommend the book: "Teach Yourself Visually, Handspinning" by Judith MacKenzie McCuin. This book breaks down tools needed, different types of fiber, and how to spin: by hand with a drop spindle and by wheel. I have found this book indispensable.
