Busy morning! Snowy Owl had twins and Galena had twins!! On the down side, Snowy Owl isn’t accepting her ram lamb yet, so we had to mix up some colostrum replacer and give him a feeding. With any luck, she will get with the program and accept him later today. if not, bottle babies are adorable….

We will be set up inside the barn tomorrow, just a few feet away from the parking area, given the prediction of inclement weather in the afternoon.

Visit local farms! On May 21 and 22, the Loudoun Spring Farm Tour offers activities and shopping for local products, produce and more.

05/22/2022

We had a fun day on the Loudoun Spring Farm Tour, in spite of the 90+ temps. Our Pyrs, Rhea and Lugh, finally got enough adoration for a day.

We will be set up in the barn tomorrow, right next to the parking, in anticipation of possible t-storms tomorrow afternoon, so you can still check out the yarns, roving, and fleeces, as well as learn more about hand spinning, and, of course, explore the bank barn.

Come out and visit us!

It’s been a long night. The ewe that was so stressed from the weight and position of her lambs that she hadn’t been able to stand for the last two days has had her lambs, with extensive human assistance, and was able to stand for a while after with some support.

So, she had triplets, who will be inside with us overnight since her milk has not yet let down. They have all had their first feeding of colostrum replacer and we are setting up a big baby pen for them for the night.

I think we will have pot pies for dinner tonight. I’m not thrilled about the 3am feeding, but you do what you got to do.

And Ametrine had twins around lunch time: white ram and black ewe. Only 3 ewes left to have their lambs.

Snowy Owl had a new ewe lamb this morning. It was the first time this season I had to help out and pull a lamb; one front leg was not presenting with the head and other front leg.

The lamb was large, so it took a bit of work to get it out, but all is well.

Yesterday I cranked up the dye vat and voila: today I have 6 400 yd. Skeins of 2 ply fingering/sock yarn from our sheep in a lovely dark pine woods green. One skein is being donated to an auction for David from MDRF. The rest are for sale here at the farm. The photos really don’t do the color justice - the bottom of the skeins in the first photo comes closest.

12/19/2021

I fired up the dye pot today and dyed 6 400 yd. skeins of 2-ply sock/fingering yarn from our sheeps' wool. Navy over-dyed onto a really (overly) intense goldenrod in the hope of getting a reasonably deep shade of forest green. I'll find out more about the exact shade tomorrow.

One or two skeins will be donated to a fundraising silent auction for a vendor/artisan (David) at MDRF who had a critical medical emergency this fall.

Pics will be posted tomorrow.

We had a fun day with the farm tour today. Looking forward to seeing lots more folks tomorrow!
