I Think I Am in Love!!!

Oh, no, I think I am in love............with this face......with this sheep.....oh no!!

(picture compliments of Hopping Acres)
The stress of winter, too much computer time, reading blogs, websites, deciding what I should do with my little farm..........
So, as a single, hobby farm woman with no one "directly" to answer to (except Mom and Dad and I usually still lie to them about "certain things") I made a firm decision.
I emailed Kelly Smith at Hopping Acres who breeds Black Leicester Longwools and guess what???
I am on a waiting list for a ewe lamb!!!!! Isn't that cool?
No, seriously, isn't that flippin' awesome?
No, seriously, am I crazy?
Seriously, Mom & Dad I didn't do that ;)
Don't you just want to run your fingers through those beautiful black locks of wool?
(Oh, I forgot, this is a clean blog)
All joking aside.........I think I am in Love!

Christy said...

Cool! Congrats. I need to figure out what type of sheep I want and soon!

Tracey said...

Hi Kristi,
I tagged you, come on over and check it out!

Claire said...

Seriously! That IS flippin' awesome! And I just had to award you my own "Wonderfully Woolly" award that I came up with tonight, on my blog, because it is indeed, that awesome! Congrats!

Candy Duell said...

Congratulations! Good for you. I am also looking forward to seeing pictures of your new little baby when it gets to its new home.

Deb said...

Congratulations Kristi! He does have a very loveable face :) I've never seen their fiber close up but I understand it is fabulous.

You only go around once girl - if it's something you really want to do with your life, go for it!!
You won't regret it :)

**e-mail me when you get a chance about a black cotswald fleece please * thanks :)

Joanna said...

Gorgeous, you go for it girl!

Susan said...

I can see how you fell in love with him and I'm not even into sheep LOL He's VERY studly
Oh, I saw at the feed store that someone in Canal Fulton is giving herding lessons. Though I'm sure Dix having her own flock knows exactly what to do.

Will there be another "birth announcement" placed on the board?

kristi said...

Thanks everyone for stopping by!! I am a tad excited:)
Oh, and Andrea, I decided that since the odds of me having a "2 legged" child is slim to none (and I am perfectly fine with that by the way) I am going to have you be in charge of a "shower". I will send out the birth announcements. I'll give you a list of "gifts" I will need and would like:)
