Evening

My favorite time of day.



Beautiful light and some incoming weather - a win/win.



Hank resting up for a long night's work. Click to biggify. What a sweet face.



Comby perched between the hummingbird feeder and a nest in the wool house porch. One way or the other....he didn't catch a bird ;-). He's faking his sweet face.



Lila - house trained (mostly), stays out of trouble (mostly) AND pulls weeds in the driveway. No need to fake a sweet face here.



The old man. Handy hit a rough patch (we think he slipped in the mud) coming out of winter, but he's back to normal...which is why there's a plank down in the first picture. The three boys like to rough house over the fence.

Unbelievably I hit my own rough patch again. I thought once I lived through winter I'd be good to go. Nope - laid out by the crud. Again. Give me a break! At least it was this past weekend though. The fiber festival is this weekend!

Punkin's Patch/Equinox Farm will be there. B. Willard (the black sheep), Woolliam (the curly sheep), Marcel (the huggable brown sheep), Heidi (the spotted sheep) and Beanie Baby (the big horned sheep) will be there too. Oh, and of course Lila (the cutest sheep ;-).

Last year Saturday was insanely busy. Hopefully it will be again this year. At the end of the day though...my favorite time of day...as things start to slow down...and we all can take a deep breath...and exhale...please come (back) by the booth at 6:00 for a special Punkin's Patch meet up.



Renny herself can't be there (she doesn't have a numbered ear tag), but she's sending over a couple little gifts for everyone.

Sweet animal faces! That's going to be a full booth with all those sheep. Get well and have fun!

Oh man, I wanna go. Grrr...

When this post loaded and I saw the first photo, I said "Oh WOW." Brian wanted to know what was "wow" so I showed him the photo. He said, "That's where I drove horses." Yep! Sorry to hear Handy had a set-back, too; we'll pray both he and Russell are on the mend permanently. How goes the round-pen work?

Your first picture is so idyllic... a gal could get 'lost' in it! (My nickname isn't dreaming for nothin'!)

That first picture is my idea of heaven.
Have I got weeds for Lila!

Glad you are feeling better because you have lots of beautiful roving from your sheep to bring to the festival.
I love the poster. Remarkable Renny has taught us all a survival lesson.
Sweet, sweet photos, Sara.

You have the most beautifully fenced pastures...no wonder your animals always look so happy and joyful :-)
