Day 8 Chronicles of Showing

It's the 8th day of preparing for the show. Started Figment on his halter training and he did much better than expected. With a little encouragment he walked right along with me. Fought me going over his coat at first but eventually stood still. He will need to stand still for the judge to go over him. I was able to lift all his feet and check his teeth with no fight.
Figment has some scurs developing on his head. Thes...Read Full Post »

Pictures from the Fair

Here is a picture of my scarf that won Grand Champion at the Chattooga County Agriculture Fair. The other picture is of my booth with a couple of our goats where I was doing spinning demos. All was going well until a sudden unexpected storm blew in. We must have looked like ants running around trying to secure all the items and getting them out of the rain. Thankfully my fair neighbors jumped in to help me. It was good to see some of you come support the fair. T...Read Full Post »

Life has been busy on the farm as usual. We have 2 new babies coming to us soon from Kentucky, a red and white wether and a black doe. We are very excited about their arrival!
Today Gary got a new play toy. A Kubota tractor. Finally we have a tractor of our own so hopefully this will make life easier on the farm. Poor guy goes out to play with his new toy and it starts pouring rain.

Life on the farm in spring can be extremely busy. Once our does were all done kidding there was shearing to be done, barns to clean from a long winter, and fiber festivals to prepare for.
We just came back from attending the Festival of Alabama Fiber Arts in Montgomery, Al. It was a long, hot weekend and we had taken Chanel & Gucci. This was Gucci's first trip out in the ...Read Full Post »
