Got some Gotland/Shetland lambs!!

 So alot has been going on since my last post.....um like a year ago:) 
Pictured above is my handsome new Gotland ram I purchased from Kim Goodling www.grandviewfarmvt.com.  His name is Lars. I have not bred my Shetland sheep in over 3 years so instead of bringing in a new Shetland Ram I opted for crossing the Shetland ewes with Gotland ram.  I could not be happier!
 Seven lambs were born over the past month.....4 ewes and 3 ram lambs. Pictured below are some of the new crew.  They are super personable and I am so excited about their wool:)







So besides breaking my left foot climbing over a stall wall in July, starting my 25th year of teaching high school history in August, going to Vermont to get Lars, and turning 50 in November, life has been anything but dull;)

A Basset Hound Puppy for Me

His name is Potsie.
He is a Basset Hound.


He is pathetically adorable.


He loves his big adventure hat.


Why did I get a new puppy?
Simply because I wanted one:)

A Kid in a Tree!



A kid needs a good tree to climb.
This 3 1/2 month old LaMancha doe has found her perfect tree to climb.
And for me, she is a perfect little doe as I waited 5 kidding seasons for her mom to deliver a doe:)

A Fairy just like me.....

I was never a big doll house girl growing up.  For some reason, Barbi and her buddies never looked a lick like me.... I am sure there is some psycho analysis embedded meaning in there but I will forgive Barbies makers and not file a lawsuit as I did go on to college and earned a Master's degree and I have  a stable job. 
Anyways, I have taken a liking to the fairy gardens. I have bought way too much stuff for them, hence I have 2 fairy gardens, but I refused to buy one of the fairy's cuz again they just were kinda yucky and didn't look like me.


Then I saw her, and she looked just like me....overalls, sittin' on a hay bale.....yep, I found a fairy that looks just like me.  Well, the hair color is a bit off.....mine is this sexy grey color but it use to brown so I rationalized that she looks like me.  
Sometimes sacrifices need to be made;)

Enjoying the Snow!


Everyone was enjoying the snow today!
Snow has been minimal here so it was kinda nice to enjoy it for once, though it was only 15 degrees with windchill of about 5 degrees! Of course, the animals love the snow regardless of the temperature:)
