It's been a wild week---even the sheep have been off the wall and crazy. The sheep have been busy mowing the front yard, and pushing down temporary fencing, and driving me nuts. I'm not sure what has gotten into them, but every night they have been running and hopping around and fighting. Even when the weather was hot earlier in the week. And we aren't talking about the silly babies either---we're talking about full grown, full figured ewes! These pictures were taken shortly after I turned them out on the front for the evening----this was about their tenth lap around the yard. Silly sheep.
I've been running a bit crazy myself, trying to get things pulled together for the Fiber Festival. I think I've got everything about ready, and can actually work on rolling balls of roving at the event, if I have to. I'll try and take pictures of my booth. I sure hope I have good sales this year.
I'll be on vacation next week (YIPPEE!) so not sure if I'll get to post any--my computer at home is ill and while I hope to get some of the bugs worked out while on vacation, we will see how that goes. :-) Ah... vacation! I plan to get lots of yard and 'farm' work done, as everything needs attention. The sheepies need to be wormed too and then by the end of vacation they will be out on grass full time--so no more babysitting them in the evenings! By the way, whoever says sheep are stupid, is well, stupid! They are so incredibly stubborn and headstrong, but not stupid. It didn't take some of the big fat, er well equipped, white sheep very long to discover they could simply stand up on the temp. fence and ride it down. After multiple reinforcements, and much screaming (on my part), it didn't take them long to learn to run as fast as they could when they heard the banshee screaming out of the house and through the yard. Well trained sheep in three days or less. But they are still sneaky and don't believe in the honor system.
