Wonderful fall days

The sheep and llama Zinnia have been moved over to a new pasture! They are very pastoral in the green of the new field with the yellowing corn field as a back drop. The apples have been ripening and canning applesauce has taken precedence over house cleaning.

We have been "cleaning house" though with our sheep, our dear BFL ram (Giddeon) has found a new home near Fennimore. He produced many nice lambs this year, but since Border Leicesters seem to be faster growing and hardier we have decided to go with them and keep a few other breeds and crossbreds for fleece.
