May 16, 2012

Mothers Day bouquet from my son Ryan, Julie, Lily and Kaitlin. Another beautiful day for us here in Colorado. The iris's are in full bloom. Here is a picture of me holding my 3 week old bottle baby Tiny Tim. When I am out and about on the farm, this little guy is my constant ompanion/shadow!
It was so nice, I decided to get caught up on some of my painting of feeders and out buildings, with red paint. Now, one of the goats decided to help out, can you tell which one? Luckily, the paint is made for livestock and non-toxic.
No, not war paint, just Dosedo trying to help out.
The Katahdin sheep are almost finished with their shedding. Someone said I should have kept the fleece for felting, I will have to remember that for next year.
This is Kipcha on the left, and you can see Lucy on the right. Lucy still has a patch of fleece that has not loosened up, still attached to her back. It is so nice not to have to hire someone to do shearing, just let nature take care of it.
More later.............................................................
