Sully liked the looks of my phone and wanted to get a closer look.

Opal Ann and Ruby

Opal Ann (left) is usually a little more shy than her twin Ruby. They were born in the middle of April. All three have the softest wool. It is supposed to be "next to the skin soft" so no itchies or pickies from their wool. As they age it's only supposed to get softer, which is usually the opposite with all other breeds of sheep.

Caitlin hang'n with her crew after a long day at work. The new breed of lambs we have are called CVM. They are considered a (critical) rare breed on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy list.


Sully is our little guy, he was born in the middle of May. We can get close enough to feed him hay, but still too shy to let us pet him. I have to go buy some new fabric for his coat. Caitlin doesn't think pink plaid will do.

Ruby seems to be the leader of the three, and is the largest and loudest.

The New Crew

We picked-up the new lambs today. They were very well behaved on the ride home. Louisa and Eleanor don't mind the new roomates at all, we thought they would need to be separated for awhile. From left to right: Sullivan, Opal Ann, and Ruby.

Grandma's Garden

Everything in Grandma's Garden is blooming with beautiful, bright colors. I have a little room to plant a few more flowers.

No More Stump

The kids got the ok to demolish the rotting willow stump in the backyard a couple weeks ago. It was so bad that it only took a couple hours to clear out. I need to go to Weesies to get some plants to fill the spot. The plants should hopefully be on clearance by now.

Roses in Bloom

I first planted this climbing rose when Caitlin was a baby. It hardly ever grew and I moved it to the arbor two years ago. Well it must finally be happy because it really took off this year.
