Haven't washed away yet, Ray! That "big pond to the east" saved us this past snow storm -- we only got about 4 inches, where folks 5 miles inland got about a foot. Nice to have a little thermal protection from the water!

Lovabelle's fleece came back from the processor and Jinglebelle's is waiting to go out. Haven't had a chance to spin, but it is beautiful wool and carded out very nicely. I'm looking forward to working with it and, now with the weather getting cold, I'm sure I'll be stuck indoors and have the time!

Kelle, I can attest to Ray's Shetlands and their wool!

Kat, good to hear from you again - watched the national news the last few days, and heard the folks out east crying about a little snow. While we haven't had more than a light dusting, we're ready around here. When we get snow, we just deal with it! Linda got one of those Australian "Roberta" electric spinners and has really gone to town. Made some real nice yarn from a fleece the lady at the carding mill called the fleece from "He--"! (She washed it numerous times and couldn't get the oil out of it!) Sheep are doing fine, and we should have even more fleeces in April. Some other colors too.
