Celebrating the End of Another Year on the Farm

My blog posts have been sparse lately – the end of a very busy year has arrived so I thought it was time for a little reflection. I’d like to celebrate the end of this year on our farm by….

 

…appreciating the young and very young members of the flock

…by being amazed at how quickly our seasonal creek filled up with the recent rains

…while dealing with the challenges that mud brings

but also marveling at the wonderful effect the moisture has on the sheep’s fleeces.

…by enjoying many conversations with Nellie

She is almost always up for a good chat

and admiring the ingenuity of our flock

I celebrate by looking ahead to new adventures in 2015….

You'll have to wait to see how this adventure develops!

and by appreciating our flock, their ability to entertain, amaze and sustain our joy in them for the past 12 months. We and they want to wish you a happy holiday season and a very good start to the New Year!
