As most of my friends know, I bought Gracie's fleece for three years before I bought her. I just realized tonight how much her wool has changed! The lock on the left is from three years ago. The lock on the right is from last year. I can't believe I hadn't noticed this before! I sheared her last year for goodness sakes! Wow!
Had to show you guys this; Jari and I got the 'barn' ready today, all except for the straw. I'm demonstrating drop spinning tomorrow in Elko so I can pick some up then, but while we were out running around the property collecting errant fencing (it always seems to move around during the winter), I was again noting the condition of my girls. It looks to me that either Eliza (dorset) or Misty (suffolk) will lamb first, they have the biggest udders at this point. But check this girl out! Holy sheep! And no udder! 'Splain that one to me Lucy!

Wow that's a wide load!
I think it's kind of neat the way the fleece can change colour.

I know it's to be expected but it's frustrating. Our moorit is also as light now as oatmeal which means I have to buy brown from Mim.
