And she’s not a chicken!
We are all still feeling the loss of Griff.
But there is is a lot of grass out there to eat, and an opportunity presented itself to add another player to the roster.
So I jumped on it.
(Sorry this photo is through the fence, but it’s the best one I have so far of her flashy facial markings.)
Her name was Wynette, and she’s a Gotland/Finn/Shetland cross from Schoonover Farm. Born last spring.
I wasn’t looking for a ewe, but she has a lovely fleece, and is very sweet and friendly.
In fact, I had already spun up some of her fleece, as it was the one I brought home from their shearing at the end of March!
I was originally thinking that I would keep her name, as she’s had it for a year.
But it doesn’t roll off my tongue very easily, and I thought it would be fun to keep the baseball theme going.
So I’ve decided to call her Dottie, for Dottie Hinson from “A League of Their Own”.
So happy to have her on the team!
