May 19th was this year's shearing day, and it was lovely to get another "few" pounds of fiber and see the animals emerge sleekly from under the thick winter fluff. It's getting to be time to contemplate getting the fiber processed again. We have four year's worth of fiber in my study, but also lots of yarn left to sell from our first processing. The to-do list is lengthening!

Greta and Moonstar wandering around in their new outfits!

On Memorial Day, The Farmer and I went to a farm just over an hour north of us to look at some boys for sale. We are hoping to get Dark Star a companion, and possibly purchase a stud male to breed to Greta. She is Dark Star's mom.

They had also just gotten sheared and it was interesting to feel the different ages of the animals. They definitely don't stay super soft as they get older. Our animals are also getting a rougher coat as time moves onward. We'll see what the processors say when they work with the older fiber.

Finally, a friend of mine gave me this card last week. It took me a few seconds to catch what was going on, and then I couldn't stop laughing. Still laughing! 

Hope your summer is off to a great start! Till soon!
