Janet has 11 Corriedale sheep and skirting was fun. The quality of her fleeces is really very nice and it didn't take us too long to get through them all. Her sheep seem to like to keep clean for the most part. We set a few aside so that she could send some off to a few fibre festivals in Alberta, Sask and Manitoba. Just look at the beautiful crimp and luster we found!
She has a wonderful Great Pyrenees dog that loved to give hugs and hang around all the wool. The cat was also interested and rubbed himself all over the bags of wool. Who can blame them?
Several of her sheep are lambing and she checked on them every few hours. I was hopeful I would see a new baby lamb but Janet texted me after I had left with some good news; She had her first lamb! Isn't it tiny?
