Of course, each day there had to be a visit to the barn to get their sheep fix. One student named Vinca "Tail Wagger" and the sheep love the attention.
If you scroll down to the pictures below, you can see how much fun everyone was having.
Our next class is Sunday Aug. 22nd and it is a Wet Felting and Needlefelting Class with Cheryl Flett to make a picture/landscape and the class is 1-4 p.m. Please register right away as the class is almost full.
I needle felted Gregory Giraffe (selling price $175.00) and donated it to our local Wardsboro Public Library for the Red Barn Affair. It was an evening event with a silent auction and there were so many beautiful things to bid on. I'm sure it really was a huge success and so much fun in our small town.
Darcy and Todd trimmed hooves Wed. evening and did 10 ewes. Wow farm life, Darcy and Todd's evening together is out to the barn trimming hooves! Java's front hooves got nicked so yesterday and today I gave her a shot of penicillin and some banamine for pain and tonight she is doing better. Darcy and Todd put Java and Daisy in with Tinka, Juliette,Stella, Arly and baby Percy.......well let me tell you, Java does not like little Percy and all his foolishness. Tonight when I did chores, Percy had a cut on his forehead at the base of one horn and Java was trying to give him another treatment! I took Daisy and Java and put them in a small stall for tonight and will put them in with the old group tomorrow.
I have said very often in these blogs that there is never a dull moment on the farm! I put portable fencing out the road to the gully and my four boys Luther, Ripley, Spartacus and Stuart were in little piggy heaven eating leaves,and major brush. That should keep them happy for about a week. I moved one group of ewes across the road into a beautiful pasture so they will be happy too!
I went with my sister Bev, my niece Carleen and my grandaughter Rowan to the annual Bills family reunion in Newfane yesterday afternoon. We had a lot of fun and stopped for a soft serve ice cream cone on the way home. I took Bev with me to the Red Barn Affair as my guest and we were real party animals!!!!!! There were free drinks and lots of appetizers. My three great nieces were the waitress for the event and were so cute. I can remember how exciting things like that were when I was young.....GAZOOK! that was a LONG time ago.
My son David and his family have gone up to York, Maine for a vacation for 3 days so Jon and I are going to help Darcy, Rowan, Declan and my great nephew Robbie take care of Bogart the Newfoundland dog, two black cats Piper and Poppy and all the chickens. Well I'm ready to go fall in a chair and do a little needlefelting.
Goodnight from Maybelle MaMa
