Here is Fancy of the 3 Dorset girls that began our flock. They are friendly, easy going and have lovely fleece, that is soft, crimpy and dyes like a dream.
Soon after the Dorsets, we found a wonderful breeder of Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats, Barb Halligan of Cornerstone farm. From Ellie, Grace and Zoe was the beginnings of our herd. Llew the black llama gelding is the herd guardian and he is ruled by Lashes who also likes to sunbathe.
Lambs! Having 5 Mums give birth really explodes the flock, now the flock numbers 19 in total. What we were surprised about was how colorful the DorsetxJacobs are, so I'll have lots of brown wools to both sell, as well as spin and weave with. Do stop over at our web site www. littlemeadowsfarm.net to see most of our sheep and our Adopt a Sheep Program.
Mr. Bunny came to live with us last Feb., his original name was Thundercloud because he was all grey. After his first shearing tho he is now a white coated guy. Still a sweetie and is doing very well living side by side with Ranger a French Angora bunny gifted to us by Meg. Their fiber is carded into the sheep wool to spin up warm & soft yarns. They do not live in cages but in special enclosures on grass.
This summer we added 3 lovely Corriedale girls to the flock, Betty & Mabel are Precious' twins and the three of them have blended in well. Precious' fleece is micron tested at 24 so is extremely soft - we expect Betty & Mabel to have very similar fleeces too.
