Well ... there is just one more ewe yet to lamb this year at Willow Garden ... and then a yearling that might lamb at her new home ... :-)
Here they are ... the lambs of 2012 ...
These are twin ewe lambs out of Willow Garden Ameliasburgh and Willow Garden Seasonal. The one that isn't spotted is emsket ... :-)
Seasonal is the sire of all of the lambs, so I won't mention him again.
And here is Cheery with her awesome looking gulmoget ram lamb!
Neir Lakes # AI had twin katmoget lambs ... a ram and a ewe. She is out of Todhill Glayva, and the lambs look awesome!
Willow Garden Ottawa had a ram and a ewe lamb.
Willow Garden Kanata had an awesome spotted katmoget ewe lamb.
All of these ewes, and their lambs are sold. HarmonyMarsh DaVinci and WillowGarden Seasonal are also included in the package. They are going to a wonderful farm, with a shepherd experienced with sheep ... just not Shetlands. Bonnie, my wonderful LGD is going with them ... :-)
I am keeping just two ewes for the next Willow Garden ...
and THAT is my big news ... :-)
I am tired of being tired all of the time, trying to do this by myself! Somewhere along the line, it stopped being fun and just became work. I want to spin, weave, and throw dinner parties ... and I WILL!
So ... this farm will be sold ASAP ... and I'll be purchasing a new, smaller Willow Garden, deeper into The County ... back to the area where Gene and I started out. I have lots of friends and supports there ... and the move just feels ... right! It feels like I am going home ... :-)
Life is good!
