Meet the Sheep–Getting Ready

Meet the Sheep is our annual open house when we invite the public to meet our sheep, learn about fiber and hopefully become fiber enthusiasts. I couldn’t do this without the Farm Club. FC members spent the day here on Friday helping clean up and set up. After everyone left on Friday Dan did the final clean-up of moving the piles of things that accumulate on a farm (pallets, disc, un-burned burn pile) and the place looked great.

These photos were all taken by Dona on Saturday morning.DSC_5792 We parked in the back but there was a line before I got the sheep locked out of that area.DSC_5794 “Put it there.”DSC_5821“It’s this one.” We selected sheep for petting and display. FC has already made a “naughty list” of ewes who were NOT to be used for petting.DSC_5839Signs went up.DSC_5812  Amaryllis went into her own pen…
