Peek-a-Boo Fleece

The 3 of the 4 lambs that were born this year are all really friendly, though the little gully girl still thinks I am some strange alien from outer space.  I mean we only see each other every day but whatever.
I have been attempting to get some fleece pics of the lambs but you know with the wonderful humidity and pleasantly oppressive temperatures plus silly little lambs squirming around when you get ahold of them...well, it has not been successful.  Its like playing a game of peek-a-boo with me, them, and the camera.

Today I was able to get a pretty good pic of the black ewe lamb........

.....peek-a-boo, its looking pretty good in there! Jed and Savannah are just a match of good genes! I am quite pleased with this black little ewe!

Bethel is such a character! She is insanely friendly and her and I are usually joined at the hip during morning chores. She likes to talk to me too, lots of conversation about lamb life.

This is one of the nicest fleeces I have gotten from a spotted lamb so I feel I am making progress. Though I will ask, do I call this grey when I register her? Or do I go blk/white?

Now where is that gully girl?
She likes to play peek-a-boo with me.........

Beautiful fleece! How the heck do you get fleece photos by yourself??? I try and try but as soon as I try to get the camera in position to snap a photo, the sheep moves! Either that or they won't even let me part their fleece...

Kristi,

The Champ and Quechee lambs here are soooooo soft and crimpy! Your flock has lovely fleece.

Michelle,
Thank you! This year was a great year for my wool....just gotta start selling it and using it more!

Nancy,
So nice to hear from you! Oh you should see all the shots of ground and blurred shots I delete to get one good shot. I usually hold them between my legs, I am sure if the neighbors are watching they are thinking I have lost my mind;)

Kara,
Thank you! I have to laugh cuz the 2 lines that I am using I believe really don't like each other but the offsprings have been quite nice!

LOL that seems to be true and I agree it makes for a nice mix. Too bad they don't know what they are missing. Here is to being open minded...cheers! :)
