2014 Fleeces, Washed!

We have had a lot of rain this week, which is great for indoor projects.  I am happy to say that all of the 2014 Fleeces are now washed.

 It was humid, so the fleeces were not drying very fast. I ran out of room, and had to set up some make-shift drying racks. I took over the barn, fleeces everywhere!

 Rainy days are good for chick flicks too, so it took some motivation to get me out there, but I am glad I did. Feels great to be able to check something off that, ever growing list.

P.S. I have a new camera, and I am not sure what setting I had it on, the pictures looked almost wavy, if that makes sense. Time to read the manual!

    1. Kelly, their wool is an ivory-cream coloring. Only their legs and heads are red.
      Tunis lambs are born with a red undercoat, but the wool comes in cream/ivory.

  3. They seem to almost glow with an inner light, just beautiful!
