Why Yes


"...I do always sleep with a chicken on my back.  How can you tell?"

Poor Boudreaux.  Hope no one was planning on spinning his fleece next spring ;-).  Speaking of fleeces, I think I've got a good working list of the fleece reservations, but just to be sure, if you have already reserved a fleece, please shoot me a reminder email so I can "check it twice".

Also, I have six Farm Calendars and four Lamb Camp calendars left if anyone is needing something to flip to tomorrow.  Well, I won't be able to get it to you overnight... ;-). Again, just email me.

I'm looking forward to the new year.  I always do, but this year is especially exciting.  Do you know why?  Leave your answer/guess in the comments on the main blog and I'll do a drawing for something fun at the end of the day tomorrow, January 1, 2015 (gotta start practicing!)

It is because you decided that Maisie should have a mini-Maisie in 2015, perhaps?!😍 Love Maisie! Happy New Year, Sara, to you and all the members of your farm family.

thecrazysheeplady said...

Um, no. That's all we need, a Mini Maisie :-o.

Susan said...

I tell you, that chicken is the perfect accessory to Boudreaux (as far as coloring, that is)... I don't know, but I WANT to know! Does that count??? A very happy, healthy, fun, wonderful New Year to you and all yours, Sara!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

SWEET!
How about a couple of little "Hanks!"
Happy New Years!

Heather said...

Tina Marie the Willow Witch said...

Auntie Reg said...

If I could speak Chinese!

Benita Story said...

2015 being the Year of the Sheep?

LannieK said...

Being the Year of the Sheep.... even MORE fiber! :-) And more fiber stuff! :-D

Karen Battersby said...

Yay for the year of the sheep!

Sandy said...

We'll, if you getting into practice was a clue...more giveaways in 2015? But how do you ship free sheep hugs? =o)

Windswept Farm said...

The start of lambing? (But that is every year.)

Jean said...

No mini-Maisie, 2015 is the year of the sheep, Reg is talking about Chinese, clues but I'm still confused. I'll go with an overseas trip or a new family member. Now that Sara is ROFL I'll admit that I have not a clue! Happy New Year Sara.

Opallady's guesses:
More land
Free vehicle
More help (a farm club)
An inheritance from a distant but rich relative

DianeOart said...

Because..... It's RAM year!!!!

Rebecca said...

Just because I think we need to be perfectly clear here....2015 is the year of the sheep/goat/ram. And that's for all of us who have goats as well as our beloved sheep. Don't have a clue what your news is..but can't wait to hear!

Vermont Grand View Farm said...

I know....are you planning to visit my farm in Vermont over the summer so we can sit and knit while looking out over the Green Mountains??

thecrazysheeplady said...

I like your thinking! :-D

Far Side of Fifty said...

I have no idea...Sheep Trials...Sheepdogs...maybe you are starting a new adventure! Whatever it is I know you will have fun! :)

KC said...

My guess is a vacation;) What ever it is I hope it is wonderful and brings you joy. Happy and healthy wishes for 2015 for everyone at Equinox.

RuusVerd said...

I was going to say because it's the year of the sheep, but that seems to be a popular guess...
Is it a milestone birthday for someone on the farm?

Alice said...

Perhaps someone is with child?

MarmePurl said...

My Guess: Handy has been gone a while now. It's time.

Sheepmom said...

EVERY year at Equinox Farm is the Year of the Sheep. ;-)
Besides that, I'm going to guess you're starting a new venture - maybe a book? With Hank and all the farm characters? (If that's not it, it should be!). Haha.

YarnKettle said...

Because that sheep that was knitting a scarf on the Year of the Sheep stamp twelve years ago, finally finished the scarf and is wearing it on this year's stamp? It gives us hope that we will finish all the lurking projects and have a beautiful and useful thing instead of a yarny pile of guilt?

Sarah said...

Great picture! :)

Lisa Smith said...

My curiousity is peaked! I can't wait to find out! Since I've only been reading your blog about a year now, I am afraid I don't have a clue as to what it is. But if I were to guess, I'd guess you are going to be doing a project with your photography, or your beloved sheeps, or a combination of both! Or, perhaps something tied into a charity? Whatever it is, I wish you and your whole big family a very Happy New Year (and sending a special petting/ear scratching to Comby!) =^..^=
Warm Regards, Lisa in Oregon

Lady Locust said...

No Idea...being featured in a fabulous knitting/fiber arts magazine:) Your photos always take me home in my memory.
Thank you.

Lisa W said...

I'm guessing that it will be the publication of a lovely book of your photographs, paintings, and stories -- for children of all ages :-)

Pretty please? With sugar on top!?

Michelle said...

Because it's the Year of the Sheep, and you have Kate, and this year was the Year of the Horse, and.... ;-)

Patti said...

You have even more energy this year and will blog more including more photography!

janna e said...

Have a wonderful year of the sheep, lots of sunshine, and rain when you need it!

thecrazysheeplady said...

Wow, you guys...maybe I need to re-evaluate my new year resolutions!

Elaine Lim said...

A new tractor/vehicle for the farm? A llama? A teaching position? Horseback riding lessons? I give up but I'm sure whatever it is will make us all happy for you!!

Lisa W said...

I think you know that whatever you do, you will get loads of support. Reading your stories and looking at your photographs is a special part of my day and I'm sure that everybody here agrees with me. Happy New Year!

small farm girl said...

Pregnant? :0)

thecrazysheeplady said...

I'm going to ban you and Alice from the blog!!! :-o

Alice said...

Hey, I said "someone ". .... Could be family or friend

Michelle said...

ROFLMHO!!!

Susan Mckee-Nugent said...
