A Winter Visit

On a visit back to family in Michigan, we managed to fit in a short visit to a neighboring farm with, you guessed it, sheep! I had met Zach and Lindsay last year at the Michigan Fiber Festival and they generously invited us to visit them over the holidays when we would be in the area.

On a cold winter day, my husband and i took his folks and sister over to see some live sheep as we had been looking at photos of ours during our stay. Especially important to see them as they have…….Jacobs!

Look at that pretty little lilac in front!

You can see a couple Corriedales and a Shetland or two in this shot.

When they heard grain rattling, they came on a run (does that sound familiar?!)

Here is the flock ram, Gabriel.

These sheep do not mind eating off the snow! Not sure what our sheep would think about this.

And when the grain was gone, so were the sheep (typical!)

Thanks, Zach and Lindsay, for a little look at your sweet flock. For more information on Zach and Lindsay’s business, please see their blog: fattoasterfarm.wordpress.com.
