Wool Work...


"...is boring."


"So boring."


"If you'd quit taking pictures of me, you'd get done quicker!"

The Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival is this weekend!  I'm about as ready as I'm going to get.  I have a couple more things I'd really like to get done, but the fleeces are all skirted and weighed and the spindle kits are assembled and packed.  I've got some Punkin's Patch "swag" packed and, of course, Biscuit.  A few others will be coming as well, to work the Hug a Sheep pen.

I think we are going to bring the bottle lamb brigade - Biscuit, Bullwinkle, Liddy, Baaxter.  Or maybe Andy and Levi.  Andy's fleece is so pretty and Levi is a gorgeous color.  Not Maisie, for sure, although she has been on her best behavior lately.  You'll have to come see who ends up being dumb enough to get caught Saturday morning making the cut ;-).

Thanks for all the kind words about Keebler.  He was so loved by so many.  I remember taking him to the very first Lexington festival.  Kathy Meyer (who started the festival and where Keebler came from as a triplet lamb years ago) couldn't believe the number of people who would walk past the sheep pen, look over to see Keebs and call him by name.  He was that sort of sheep.

Sadly, if you start doing the math, there are a lot of old sheep in our flock.  We will treasure and enjoy everyone as long as we can.  Someone I'm especially enjoying right now is Jester.  If you haven't been following the Biscuit thread on Instagram/Twitter/Facebook, you really should.  All I can say is Jester better live forever.  And it this point it looks like he might!

It doesn't seem that Keebler was THAT old. But Jester...what a cool sheep he is!

Now that I've had my cuteness fix today will be a good one. Hope you sell lots of wool!

Keebler was not that really that old, but he was too heavy and a couch potato and his legs gave out :-(. Jester on the other hand is much older, but more active. A cushy life is not always the best.

Sweet Uncle Jester and Biscuit together - what a lovely pair.

You take such good care of your aging flock...perhaps you have an old sheeps home:) I can see maybe a Christmas Card part sheeps home and part mandatory exercise group, with some shenanigans :)

Have a great Festival!

Have a wonderful Festival weekend! Poor Maisie, her reputation certainly precedes her. She can probably be found out and about this weekend, regaling the others with tales of how she manages to avoid having to go to festivals!

Aw Biscuit with a fairy godfather!
