The Best Laid Plans

I've been looking forward to the Bluegrass Classic Stock Dog Trial/Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival all year. I was excited to move my booth back down to the dog trial this year so I could sit and spin and watch the sheep and dogs, visit with friends, eat blueberry pancakes cooked by the Boy Scouts (it's the little things in life ;-)...



Unfortunately, Blossom has been really sick. The way I understand it, it's something to do with pneumonia caused by a selenium/vitamin E deficiency (unfortunately common in this part of the country).

She's feeling quite a bit better, but is still not the bouncy, happy, healthy lamb we all love, so I am still staying home with her today and am hoping maybe to make it to the dog trial tomorrow.



20's all packed and ready to go. He has his new fancy khaki shorts and an Equinox Farm polo shirt and picked out a yellow hat to go with. Never too early to start thinking about football season, you know ;-).

I hope all the local folks are coming out this weekend. Lots of fun stuff going on! The dog trial is just down the hill from the fiber festival and it's a lot of fun as well, especially the finals on Sunday. I hope I'm there to see it...but mostly just hope my baby gets better soon.

Oh I hope Blossom feels better soon. I have loved watching her this spring, she is such a character.

Terry said...

Oh no! I'm so sorry precious Blossom is sick. We have the opposite problem - too much selenium in our soil. Maybe Blossom needs to be my baby for a while!

Come on Blossom! If you could just drop her off at Skoog Farm I would be happy to watch her while you go to the trials.

Your dinner looked yummy tonight.

I was thinking last night that I had missed a day or two of the Punkin' Patch and I was missing Blossom and all the other critters. I hope that Blossom is back to bouncing soon. It must be heartbreaking to see such a lively little thing feeling so poorly.
