This is a morrit wether that went out to be a fiber pet at a farm near Litchfield,Mn. Righ behind him is our "little holstein cow" at least that is what she has been called since I don't have the naming convention down on these shetland colors and patterns. Can someone help me with what her description would be?
My friend Deann who took the wether, took the picture of me with the ewes and lambs in the barnyard a few months ago. Seems to me when I look at the picture that the ram lambs are the friendliest or is it nosiest? Very sweet sheep and one of my favorite pictures. We still have most of our lambs for sale. They are all hanging out in the shed today on this miserable rainy day.
I had a nice phone call from Kelly yesterday asking to purchase the Ashford Traditional spinning wheel that I listed in the previous post, so it is considered sold.
I also have the jumbo flyer unit available for sale with (3) bobbins for the traditional wheel for $125.
Ashford finally came out with a larger bobbin and winder unit for the Joy wheel which travels with me almost everywhere and I have lamented the fact that the bobbins are so small and when you ply the two together you get a small skein so since I have the traditional wheel I purchased the jumbo flyer unit for it and then I plyed my singles off the lazy kate of the joy onto the flyer of the traditional. A process but it worked. Now however I no longer need to do that. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like pictures of the flyer unit or of course of our wonderful sheep.
See ya chickies!
