Got me some nice local grass hay yesterday!
2nd cutting. Just over a ton.
And I’m so pleased to be able to put it in the sheep shed this year.
We finally got the roof done, and separated the sheep half from the hay/people stuff half.
Here is a view of the hay/people half from the sheep side-
And vice versa-
Here’s Edgar, having just approved the new placement of the mineral feeder-
And Felix and Griff enjoying our unusually lush late-July pasture.
Guess all this rain is good for something!
I’m still working on getting a bunch of fiber ready for my annual Langley crafting retreat this week.
I’ve got three batts of Chone all worked up (on the right), some shetland/dyed mohair blend (center), and some misc leftovers that might come along too (left).
Hope to still do some more carding tonight.
So hard to decide what to take!
Wow, EVERYthing looks GREAT! Barn, pastures, sheep, batts….
Thanks Michelle. I’m so pleased to have it all put together. Gotta keep the boys happy 🙂
Your hay looks great. Nice feeling, isn’t it, having your hay secured. The fiber is lovely, as always.
Thanks. Yeah, it is a really good feeling having the hay in. Think I did a better job selecting it this year, too. This stuff is a lot finer and smells so great!
That lush pasture is looking pretty good right now. Dry as a bone here. We just put up hay as well, good feeling to have that done. I’m glad Edgar approved of the placement. I have pretty strict building inspectors myself. 😉
I’m so glad that Edgar approved of the new sheep shed. We do have to keep these animals happy, don’t we?
That hay looks good.Wish I had a flat pasture to grow my own.
That fleece looks wonderful..Happy Carding.
