The New Girls

Two new additions to my flock.  I know I said I was done, but I've decided that size does matter.  One of our goals is to produce market lambs.  I however am not willing to do that without having nice fleeces for my spinning and to blend with my angora for sale to other spinners.  I already had a cormo wether and so we have decided to add a small cormo breeding flock.  To start this adventure I purchased the two ewe lambs above from Westfield Woolies.  Two very wonderful ladies, Ruth and Alison, I recommend them highly if you are interested in this breed.  On the left is China who is pure Cormo and on the right is Arielle who is 3/4 Cormo and 1/4 BL.  They've got another year to grow and then I should have some nice Cormo lambs the following spring.

Boy has this fall been busy.  First I traveled to Germany for work.  Most of the trip was dedicated to my work elements, but I did get to travel a bit over the weekend since I was there for two weeks.  I went with a couple of co-workers to Neushwanstein castle.  It is very beautiful and in the foot hills for the Alps.  This made for quite a hike up to the castle and it was pouring rain.  It still was worth the walk and I'd do it again.
