Moving right along into fall
And to visit a cider mill.
I went to Rhinebeck, and left my camera in the car. Imagine pictures of rare sheep breeds here *******************
And (sorry, I just have to shout about this) THERE IS ALREADY SOMEONE TRYING TO INTRODUCE THE OUESSANT SHEEP INTO NORTH AMERICA! That’s right, you heard it. I saw with my own eyes some Shetland x Ouessant crosses (50%). Adorable.
I came home with a fleece from a 50% ShetlandxGotland cross also, jet black. When it’s washed, it looks like curly locks of human hair. I’m afraid I’m not doing it justice, but then, I’m also focusing all (most) spinning on some Border Leicester I got in Vermont this summer. So the Gotland prep-card-spin will have to wait.
