Elissa's two sheep, Cupid the off-white merino and Pappy (of Black Sheep Squadron fame) the black shetland/gotland cross. In the third picture you can see Jake trying to find out if there are carrots in cameras.
mmmm.... sheep (homer simpson accent here). These are delicious sheep cookies baked by Ruth Northrop on our road trip. mmmmm.... sheep......
Elissa and her needle felted rainbow sheep. Extremely cute except for the mad yellow eyes! I think I need to make myself one of these.
Fleece stash. Here is my beautiful rambouillet (the french merino) fleece that I bought at Black Sheep Gathering and had to leave at Elissa's. We have been reunited and some of this fleece is now bathing in hot soapy water so I can see it in all it's naked glory! Can't wait to try spinning a little of it. It's a little on the short side as far as staple length, but it was a good price and it's an absolutely gorgeous color. The rancher is Colleen Jennings of Riverton WY
And this one is the fleece I bought at the parking lot sale at OFFF. This one is a Finn/Lincoln cross and it's really beautiful. It' goes from grey to brown in the lock and has a nice luster. It is also next to skin soft, although you wouldn't categorize it as a fine fleece. This one was only $15 for a 5 lb fleece so I think I got quite a good deal. It needed a little bit of skirting, but overall was really a lovely fleece. The rancher is Karla Marinch (sp?) of Brown Sheep Farm somewhere in Oregon.
