A few somewhat random photos related to what I have been up to lately. I shot a photo of our rabbits in their pen enjoying their morning hay.
These are three does that are visiting Yahoo for 3 weeks.
I have been using my minispinner when I find time. Here’s the Crown Mountain Baby Camel and Merino Top I spun and plied into this two plied yarn. It is wound into a skein and about to be washed.
Here’s the Crown Mountain Yak and Merino Top I spun and then decided to ply with some Crystal Palace Merino and Nylon dyed yarn I have in my stash.
Tom had removed the fence netting after Shaun got caught in it. Today I put back up the fencing in the front pasture to keep the goats 35 feet from the front ditch and attached it to the fence charger. I can only hope that our horned goats do not get caught in it. I did this in high winds and a torrential downpour, while I am sick with a nasty cold.
The rams are now in the far back field with our three pack llamas. It makes me nervous having the rams in with other creatures. I have had a donkey kill a ram lamb, a ram take out a Highland cow’s knee, a horse lift a ram by the neck, and a ram kill my favorite goat. But I have had a llama in with rams before without problems so I thought I would try it again so hopefully the coyotes will not eat my ram lambs.
So I have complied with all that has been asked of me so far by the Washington State Department of Ecology. Hopefully I can now return to the ever increasing list of farm chores that need to be done.
