Our annual Open House, Meet the Sheep, was almost four weeks ago now but better late than never for photos.
Farm Club members came early to help move sheep into pens, hang signs, and get organized.
This is the Saturday crew.
Ready for people to visit.
The goats had their own pen and were ready for attention.
This may be one of Jade’s favorite days of the year because she gets petted all day.
Colleen set up her Fiber Confections booth. Colleen and I have been doing some version of Meet the Sheep together for over ten years.
Gynna brought her socks for sale.
Farm Club members demonstrated fiber processing and spinning. Susan set up combs.
So did Doris.
Susan and others spun and talked to lots of people about all the fiber crafts.
Dan wore a different hat today (figuratively). Parking Attendant.
Amy and several Farm Club members helped with lambs to pet.
Alora was in the lamb pen also.
Meet the Sheep is now two days. This is the Sunday group.
Sunday morning started slow and Farm Club members put their social media skills to good use while waiting for our attendees to arrive.
Alison brought her new pencils and drawing pad and spent the day sketching.
Marina worked on her rigid heddle loom all day.
Jane spent time in the barn showing how a fleece is skirted and what spinning is all about.
Deborah answered questions in the sheep pen.
Everyone wants to see the rams but we don’t want people to be too close to the fence.
One of the big hits of both days was feeding the bottle lamb. There were plenty of willing lamb feeders. We’re looking forward to April, 2020.
