A yarn following sheep, lambs, wool, and natural dyeing ....

As soon as the weather cools down and the days get shorter, the sheep get friskier at Wild Rose Farm. Today there was a bunch of head butting. By the time I ran in and got the camera, things had settled down a bit. This is the last face off involving "U", the aggressor, and Rambouillet ewe #329. What a coincidence, since we just shipped off the champion fleece of #329 and I didn't realize it was her until I double clicked & enlarged the picture. Look, there's another of the volunteer pasture pumpkins just under "U".
And what's up with this little lamb? Doesn't she know that the minerals are inside the feeder??? :)
