Remember when I had mentioned getting sheep for Bethany to spin her own fiber? Well, there is a gentleman who is selling off his herd. Sheep, goats, and dogs. We will pick them up on Wednesday. The sheep are not wool sheep, but rather "hair sheep." They are used primarily for meat, but their fiber can still be spun. It just takes more work. I also researched how to get the lanolin out. (Lanolin comes from sheep.) So, we will have sheep, goats, and livestock guard dogs that have been raised with these sheep. The gentleman was saying that with these dogs, when the ewe lambs, they bring the lamb to the dog as an introduction. I think that's neat. The dogs are anatolian shepards. They have been born and raised with these sheep. I'm looking forward to this.
Bethany had her spinning lesson today. I brought Hannah with us so that Husband could get some work done here. Hannah had to learn a tough lesson today. She was looking at, smelling, and touching some flowers in a planter. Not a big deal in and of itself. But, she pulled some flowers out root ball and all. I told her she had to apologize. We knew it was an accident, but she still had to apologize. After much screaming and crying, she was ready to apologize. She did, hugged, and all was forgiven. The lesson she had to learn (and will have to learn repeatedly like many people do) is that we all make mistakes but we need own up to them.
