Wow is that an update?

Has it been over a month since I posted some news and pictures? Wow. Um sorry everyone. Things are going well in the shetland department. The breeding groups are established and the only ones are upset are the girls' not getting the chance this year. The weather was nice and frosty today and the light was beautiful for pictures so here are a few.

This is Painted Knoll Kanasatka who is growing up to be very pretty. She is not as shy as she used to be and will come over for some attention now.

This is Colby who continues to also grow up nicely. She is staying a dark grey underneath so far which I really like and her fleece is super soft.

And this is my Hermione. She is not very happy about not being allowed to have lambs this year but I am only trying to breed 4 ewes and I wanted to give her a year off. I'm actually thinking of parting with her next year as I really want a flecket ewe but want to keep my flock numbers at 10. Anyway she is a wonderful girl and always gives me a little tail wag when she gets her belly rubbed.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. I personally am thankful for my wonderful family and all my animals. I never thought I'd be blessed enough to have my own sheep and a horse. Let alone someone that loved me. So blessed indeed. 


  1. Which four? Which ram is the lucky guy? I have two fleckets, and one white spot that throws fleckets bred this year. I'll keep you posted. :)

  2. I am going to use both boys. Dreamer is with Jewel (who had Yosemite this year) and Amelia who is a first timer. And my new ram Sunny is with Gypsy and Sabrina so I should have some really good shades of black and shades of brown, plus great fleeces.

    Hermione, Colby and Cammie are all being kept open this year (the last 2 are only babies still) and of course Zebedee is in with them as he's my wether.

    Oh sounds great :)
