Vermont comes to Ohio
After browsing around in Bennington, an innocent trip to Bennington Pottery (innocent because I only bought 3 thing:), and a leisurely drive up historical route 7A, a missed exit, a phone call to Kim at Grandview Farms, I arrived around 3:00 to her beautiful home in the heart of the Green Mountains.
I was just awed at the beautiful surroundings.................
............and I was greeted by a group of very inquisitive Romneys! I think they were talking about me! Gosh, they are so awesome!
I am jealous of the view Kim's sheep have! I was amazed that the furthest mountain range the eye can see from here is Killington which is an hour drive! I could just sit there and absorb the surroundings for hours. I had a wonderful stay and the Goodling Family were great hosts! After a well needed nights sleep, I headed out at 7 am with my new Romneys. They were very opinionated when I stopped for gas, causing many looks at my mini-van and they only startled one tollbooth attendant in NY. But when I arrived back in Ohio at 7 in the evening and I opened up the van, boy did they create a baaing ruckus, getting all the other sheep up in a baa!
I have them in a stall for the first day but tomorrow its suppose to be 87 and on Saturday 90 (again) so I will let me out because it will be way too hot in the stall even though it has a dutchdoor in it.
What a beautiful profile! I am such a proud new owner! I wanted to get a fleece shot but they were not really willing to let me get a perfect pic...............
.......................but I think this gives a good idea of how beautiful the Romney wool is! So, my last summer hooray has come to an end and tomorrow I have to report to school because I am the department chair for Social Studies:(
I better go check those Vermont lotto tickets I bought!
