Winter is coming!

My friend Donna and I had a few days visit  about a month ago. Although we have both spent a lot of time in Yosemite it has been quite a while. If when you visit and come in on Hwy 140 and enter at the North entrance you are greeted by amazing rock facing that will take your breath away.

What's new buttercup? Why sheep my friends. I can now add Shepherdess to my other hats. Although these are not my first sheep but a start to a small spinner's flock. Peter and Paul are Shetland withers about 18 months old.  A friend and I brought them home about two weeks ago so they are still in the "getting to know you" stage. Both are friendly but Peter on the left makes it easier to bribe . Paul is coming around nicely. The end goal is they will be in the barn before winter with the goats and dogs with access to the acre pasture. More sheep to be added next year. 

BBboy is the last kitten added to our family via the hay barn at about 4 weeks. He has grown into a
 handsome cat. Short but sweet for now. Still impossible to add photos from my iPhone to my blog without going back and forth to place them correctly. Suggestions welcome as always.

You have sheep! Lucky, lucky you! White Shetlands is the perfect starting place for a spinner's flock. I started with goats, which was logical at the time since all my spinning was put on hold. Now, I sure do wish I could have some fiber animals.

Love the shot of BBboy. And I'm sorry I can't help with the phone. I have no idea about how to wrangle those critters!
