Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone is having a very merry Christmas season! Although I'm sitting here listening to hard rock (Distubred - Down with the Sickness at the I'm starting to get the Christmas tunes stuck in my head. It's usually sickening to listen to them because being in retail, I start hearing them about 2 months in advance of December...Yeah...Not cool! lol.

Anyway, some fun things coming up/happening in my life!

Got ticket to the Three Days Grace/Breaking Benjamin/Flyleaf concert! SOOO excited. Missed TDG & BB last time they were here in Duluth, was sooo sad. The last time I saw Breaking Benjamin was when they were a no name band with Evanescence at the St. Cloud college and it was just after Denny and I started dating...he actually bought me the tickets before we started dating (Christmas present). They are some very good bands, and I am very excited!

Got the breeding pens together FINALLY! White Pine Philemon has been with Disa, Gail, Wendy & Chalmeaux since he came home, so they should all have earlier babies, but boy did he get a big suprise last night when he got put in the BIG pen with most of the girls! He was one HAPPY boy! lol. Lightning & Woody got put in with each others mothers, in hopes for full poll lambs...that should make some of you poll breeders VERY happy, as these guys should throw GORGEOUS babies! Lightning is a grey kamoget and he is in with March who is a Musket, possibly modified (she's a very neat color). Woody is an Ag Fawn Katmoget, and he is in with Cornet who is a gulmoget...Crossing my fingers for a gulkat! Wouldn't it be fun to get a full poll, uber soft & crimpy, Ag gulkat ram? Although a ewe would be nice too ;-) Philemon got the rest of the girls minus Goldie. Which comes to another, although sad, story.

Likei is no longer top any means. They knocked him down and would have made mince meat out of him had mom not been there, so he got moved to a seperate pen, and now has Goldie for company and a lil' lovin, since she produced such a GORGEOUS spotted gulmoget ewe lamb last spring.

Silver & Goldie

Likei will likely live out the rest of his days at the farm, as mom is SUPER attached to him. I do admit, he's been our best ram. Never once put his head down towards us, even in the ewe pen. Mom never had to worry about him in his years here. Can't say that about ANY other ram we've had. Although mom gets a kick out of Philemon...She was worried at first because he was always crowding her, but he was just wanting a scratch and to be close to her because she is the "grain bringer" lol.

So, I thought Philemon was MORE than enough of a Christmas a couple days ago, mom starts mentioning that she's getting me ANOTHER BIG present...I kind of had an inkling the way she'd been talking about our neighbor lady A LOT lately...our neighbor lady who likes to SPIN...our neighbor lady who has voulnteered her wheels for me to come SPIN on to try them out...low and behold...what does mom bring over yesterday?

Spoiled do you think? lol! It's a homemade wheel, but Carol even says it's WAY better than her first wheel ever was...*sigh* What ever shall I do with my mother...besides hug her :) lol. So now I need to watch some videos on Youtube so I can try to figure out what I'm doing...She also sent over some Corridale roving! Nice lady :) Apparently Moose Lake has open spinning sometimes in the evenings, and Carol thinks if I bring my wheel one of the ladies can get me started. Very excited to start spinning!

And this is for Ginny...her favorite ewe lamb of mine...well, at least the only one she's ever mentioned!

This is Dory, Torrent X Likei. Cute little fuzzy gulkat. She's open crimped, and feels pretty soft when I've gotten ahold of her. Unfortunately not registerable :( But a gorgeous gulkat nonetheless.

Anyway, I think I'm going to try to get some things done today. I hope everyone has a great Christmas!

My Smudgy showing off her pretty nailcaps! :)

Was going to get breeding groups together this weekend, but my back is out, and that makes for not fun moving big sheep. lol. Sooo it will have to be next weekend. I already have an idea, but I'm sure I'll be making last minute changes!

These are all backwards of how I wanted to post them, but here goes anyway! This is Wally...short for Walrus...LOL. He was the single survivng puppy out of Meekas 2 pup litter (His sister had no sucking reflex and didn't last the day). Of course, he got all the milk...and he's a cute little chub because of it! He is SO darling. He is looking for a new home, please inquire if interested! :)

"What is this!?"


"I've got squash on my face!"
"Here, this is my good side"

"What's this thing in front of your face?"

"Hey you..."

"Whachya doin' down there?"
"This is humiliating! And cold!"

"Pet me! Pet me! Pet me! Pick me up! PLEASE!"
Here he was saying hello to Oden...the dog who could likely eat him in one bite...but LOVES other dogs, so would never hurt him intentionally...but he would love to play with him too, hence the
"It's bright out here!"
"Yes, I'm beautiful!" Rebel is all grown up...almost!
Pretty Meeka is blowing most of her coat being it's weaning time for Wally!
Rebel's bracing himself for impact of...
TIMMY! lol

These two are best will be sad to see Timmy go, but Rebel also loves his girlie Madonna, and plays just as rough with her, plus she can keep up...longer legs help lol.

Mr. Priss is sitting on the step so he doesn't get his bum cold...I wish I could have gotten a good shot of his "pajama pants" SO cute...he's all frilly and fluffy in the back end right now...

Cutesey Wootsey Timmy...who is also looking for a home.

Da boys...

Everyone was in for the day on a dreary morning a week or so ago, so I took some photos! The young boys let me in their pen with no problems, but I just stayed in the back so as not to cause any problems. Plus, Robin Hood & Rifle are quite naughty, and like to take not so nice shots at

Robin Hood & Lightning (Both Blues sons)

Everyones names are on them if you want to biggify and look. Marlin, Mickey and Pluto are for sale at the moment, though Pluto may be going to the butcher barn, not sure yet.
Beautiful Peter Pan! Keeping a close eye on his horns. They're looking good so far, but want to make sure they STAY looking good. I have high hopes for this young man :)
Even though I've always preferred horns...these two have stolen my heart. Lightning McQueen & Woody. Woody is Ag as well.
Beautiful Lightning! I ADORE his face. And he's SUCH a sweetheart!
Thor and Rifle demanding attention...and even though it looks like they're the same size, they're not. Rifle is just a mite compared to Thor, he's fooling us by standing in the wall feeder lol.
Thor & Peter. You can kind of see Peters faded facial markings here, he's a spottie :)
Arturo & Likei being NAUGHTY! They only do a little barn bashing when breeding season starts coming around, and even then it's nothing to shake a stick at compared to what I've seen some rams do. I'm SO glad I've been so lucky with boys.

"Bye Mom! Come back soon for more loving!"

Most of my older boys will be getting someone. I have some VERY nice boys available at the moment. Please contact me if you're looking for a nice boy to introduce to some ladies :)
