A journal of my angora rabbits, my fiber obsession, and life on my small homestead.

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.
I'm a shepherdess, spinner, quilter, weaver and knitter. I have many furry friends including german angora rabbits, my small flock of shetland and cormo sheep, my lap cats, and an australian shepherd. We live on a small homestead near the Hoosier National Forest where we grow our gardens and enjoy nature.
