I've decided to teach myself how to spin using a drop spindle. I can't really afford, nor do I have room for a spinning wheel. Of course, I'd love one, particularly one of the Appalachian ones and I may, if I find a woodworker skilled enough take the plans and have one built. But for now, I think I probably should start with very basic stuff.
I haven't had much to write on the blog recently. I've been really busy with writing and whatnot.
Peggy over at Hidden Haven is in the middle of her mid-summer kidding storm. BossyToes had a big buck they've named Thunder Toes. He has a skunk stripe. Bridie had a doe kid. They are really loud flashy kids. Go over there if you are jonesing for a baby goat fix.
Still trying to catch Chops to shear him. Which inspired this:
Bad Agricultural Haiku #2
Sheep pants in the dust.
Oh, Chops, please let me shear you?
Runs. Runs. Runs away.
