More Sheep....


We have some newbies on the farm. We took the advice of some  fellow sheep lovers who recommended more sheep to keep up with the pastures! ;)

We went to buy an older Tunis ewe and came home with some Romney ewes as well.

I have been spinning some Romney roving for the Tour De Fleece challenge and  I have really enjoyed it, so it didn't take long to decide to take the Romney ewes along with the Tunis.

They have been living on a farm with Shetlands and their owners decided that they enjoyed the size of the smaller sheep and were looking for a home for these ladies. So they are now a part of our flock. I am excited to have some Romney again.  My first four ewes were Romney. My oldest daughter was excited too, she has missed them. There is nothing cuter than a Romney lamb and they are a sweetheart of a sheep!

They are nicely settled in the barn where we  will keep them for a couple of weeks before we introduce them into the flock.

  1. Beautiful! I have been trying to talk my hubby into getting sheep to keep up with our pasture. Maybe we will consider this breed we need a breed that works well with small children.

  2. I love Romney sheep! The fleece is just wonderful to spin and the colors are so varied. It's kind of hard to find good hand spinners fiber sheep here.

    1. They are still in the barnyard. We will be putting them out this week. If the BL's and Tunis decide not to play nice, at least they have each other :)
