There are just too many things to do on the ‘To Do’ list! The overwhelming feeling is just under the surface ready to show it’s ugly face, but the joy that the lambs bring are helping – they are not helping me check things off the ‘To Do’ list however It is so easy to sit out in the barn just watching their carefree play. I love the 2-4 week age the best. They are just sure that the world revolves around them. We have 7 new babies since the last post, 6 came in one night! Introducing -
Kenleigh’s Breeze – Junior x Aimee
Kenleigh’s Create – Junior x Aimee
Both of these girls are lilac and so sweet. Create was a little ambassador the other day when a few neighbors came by to visit the lambs. She enjoyed being cuddled and didn’t squirm like the other lambs did.
Kenleigh’s Prosperity – Pilot x Darling
Kenleigh’s Wisdom – Pilot x Darling
Kenleigh’s Bounden – Junior x Veronica
Kenleigh’s Dancer – Junior x Veronica
Bounden and Dancer earned their names Within a couple hours of being born they had springs on their feet and were doing cirlces around their poor mother.
Kenleigh’s Imagine – Wrangler x Harley
I was REALLY hoping that he was a she because Harley is getting up there in age and she hasn’t had very many girls and the girls that she has had were very light in color. Her boys are always loudly colored. Oh well! He is a cutey and he looks a lot like his dad when he was a lamb.

We have 10 more ewes to lamb and the barn is starting to get very full!
I have been salivating over my felting books and trying to fit in a few projects as time allows. Here is one that I finished yesterday.
The really fun part for me is that all of the wool came from sheep that we raised.
