Last week poor little Chet, who was wethered and had to have his horns removed, needed 1 c.c. of Penicillin each day for 5 days and silvercote sprayed on his head. I called our friend Bill and asked if he and Olivia could come help me as Darcy and Todd were both not able to help. Bill held Chet while I gave him his shot and sprayed his head. Everything seems to be doing o.k. and its nice to have extra hands. Emma and Olivia got to feed Clementine and Chloe and put out hay and water. I am so thrilled to have extra help and they will be getting two ewe lambs in the spring. Today I moved the 4 ram lambs to a new pasture. I just shake the grain bucket and they follow me up the road and into the pasture. I took down two rolls of portable from the back yard and moved it to the front yard. This means everyone is very happy and has good eating.
Monday Jonathan and I went to Dartmouth Medical Center for Jonathan to have a liver biopsy. We got there about 8:50 a.m. and got home at 5 p.m. It was a very long day but everything went well. I even got my "Vinca Vest" that I have been knitting, completely finished. I am going to put a picture on this blog so everyone can see it. I am so happy to have it to wear at the festival and show how beautiful the roving spins up. Now if the weather will just not be too rainy, snowy, etc for this weekend! Jonathan and I plan to leave Friday morning between 10-12noon. Cheryl will come up mid-afternoon and we will get our booths set up. I'm a little concerned that the crowd will be smaller because of all the road damage but we will see.
Well, I guess that's all the news from Maybelle Farm so I will sign off and go do some more needle felting. I just finished a black llama and want to finish an alpaca. Jonathan has made a wooden base for a Canadian Goose I needlefelted and will hook it down with leather straps. I couldn't make it stand up on its own.
Good-night from Maybelle MaMa
