Out and about

Ewes and lambs joined forces yesterday. No more health concerns and all are happy!

Griffin has a crush on Phoenix.

Griffin is the ram lamb of Memphis and he carries the same clown face Memphis' daughter Charlotte has. So cute!

Here is Bea's boy...still haven't named him. He is awfully cute. Any ideas?

Meanwhile I am headed out shortly as show season kicks off tomorrow in CT at the Tolland Agricultural Center, Vernon Ct. I completed 40#s of custom dye work, part of the work shown here, along with another 20#s to start show season for Long Ridge Farm. It's been a whirlwind month! Perhaps I'll see you at the show. Have a great weekend.


  1. They're adorable! Galveston for Bea's boy? Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

  2. Oh man are they cute! Love the clown face. Bea's baby eh? Are you naming all after cities and towns?
    Of course, all I could think of was Bea's Bouncing Baby Boy Bob!;-)
    I will go hide my head in naming shame. The dyed yarn looks amazing. Hope to see you in NH and have a prosperous show in CT.

    They are all adorable. How about Duncan for Bea's baby boy?

  4. What cuties! It was so nice to see you yesterday! xxx

  5. gorgeous colors! (the dyed & the natural "on the hoof")
    getting to better understand the "color addiction" that many "suffer" from. have been carding/blending dyed fibers. it's almost an end in itself, but SPINNING it all is ahead!!! hopefully in a new location I can do more natural dying :) ~ m.

    Nancy, had to take a virtual farm visit after your kindness to me Saturday. Sharing your screen really helped me display our wares! The farm is gorgeous-even had Ray come see your herds. Hope to see you at other shows or maybe I could get to a class sometime. Thanks so much!! Marti (Simple Gifts Farm)

  7. What precious little ones, Nancy! Lambing is always an exciting time with CVM/Romeldales, isn't it? We had 9 rams & 6 ewes born this year. We got a lot of black through our new ram, Brutus, from Black Pines Farm in Colorado. A few badgers, two moorit ewes (whooohooooo!) but no whites at all. Three sets of triplets this year.
