When sheep attack!

Only kidding folks, there are no attacking sheep in this post, but there are quite a few inquisitive ones!

The picture here is of Sherman a very friendly sheep who lives in Cynthiana on Equinox Farm.  You can read more about his crazy antics at the farm blog:  Punkin's Patch.  PS, her blog is very fun to follow because unlike me, she does not forget to post..hahaha

See for the longest time, I have been meaning to stop by to see my friend Sara's farm.  She has had several open houses at the farm; all of which I have not been able to attend.  So, when she asked about one of the carder brands I carried....  It was the perfect excuse for a visit to the farm!
It is hard not to miss Sherman!
Especially when he pesters you while taking pictures!

One of the adventure chickens.

I think this fellows name is Hemp.  He's just as sweet as can be!  Kind of hard not to be with a begging stare like this!
Weasley was feeling a little left out when we went inside!

Ewenice and her little friend Remmy

Fleece on the sheep.

Hank the guardian of the flock.  He is a very friendly and inquisitive boy!

I think this one felt a little left out.
The Strauch Petite carder.  If you look out the window you can see the big ball of yarn on my truck bed.

Another view of the carder.

Such a sweet kitty.

Had to say good bye to Miss Ewenice before I left.
Sara & her friend raise honey bees too!

You know you are on a good farm when there is a swing hanging from the rafters!

Lovely pics! Did you card those curly locks and get that batt from them?! Great looking batts btw!

We sure did! The batt on the left is from Sherman's lamb fleece and the batt on the right is from another sheep's curly fleece. It was fun to see the difference between two completely opposite fleeces on the carder;)

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
