The Tell Tale Signs

When I walked back up to the barn after lunch I saw the chicken feeder knocked apart and empty.  This is a classic sheep move.  Sheep love chicken feed.  So do Corgis, but they don't have to bust the feeder open to get to the food ;-).  It was sheep.  

Great.  I left a gate open somewhere.  None of my flowers were chewed down to the ground, so everyone stayed in the barn.  Wonder what got torn up.  What kind of mess(es) am I going to have to clean up...  I know what I'm in for :-/.  

Well, this is a surprise.  Nothing.  Wait a minute...  Do you see the sheep?

Now do you?

Let's walk around to the other side (as I need to shut a gate on the way ;-).


That's actually pretty clever if I say so myself!

"Yeah, I know ;-)."

That's Rocky (one of the new "rams") laying down.  Jared (the other one) came in to see what was going on...and can't believe it.  "How'd that punk get over there right in front of our fan?!?"

I let him sleep there until he got up and then I ushered him back to the correct side of the gate.  Later I found this.

Must have been a good day to be Biscuit :-).

Hot Dog

This also made a fun puzzle.  Lots of easy lines to follow and plenty of Hank :-).  Enjoy!

The New Girl

This is Kaala.  She's a natural colored Clun Forest ewe who belongs to my friend Benita aka fiberpusher of Dyed in the Wool fame.  She was part of a flock in Indianapolis that was being dispersed and needed a new home.  

She's a funny little sheep with a big personality.  Since I'm not familiar with the farm she came from, she's in quarantine for awhile.  I wish it weren't so hot, but we're doing the best we can.  Lila stepped in got tricked into babysitting her and she's settling in just fine.

For those of us apparently not keeping score at home...

...the Tour de Fleece starts tomorrow.  Yes...tomorrow :-o.

Buddy is going to be our Team My Favorite Sheep cheerleader this year, because who's better at yelling than Buddy?  So, if you need some encouragement, he's your sheep.  If you need a kick in the butt, he's your sheep.  If he wants a cookie...

As always, the Tour de Fleece spinning challenge runs in conjunction with the Tour de France bike race.  The full "rules/guidelines" are listed here on Ravelry and if you'd like to officially join the Punkin's Patch team, here is our official group on Ravelry.  You sure don't have to join officially (the primary goal of the Tour is just to encourage you to do some spinning, learn something new...), but we do have prizes :-).

All levels of experience are welcome.  Give it a try!  Our "team" is kind and helpful and very inspirational.  And no worries if you think you are already too far behind.  I'm right there with you ;-).
