Fall 2017 found a gal in need of a place for 7 of her Romedale/CVM sheep girls to retire. It was a difficult decision for her. We are very happy to have them here, we have never had this breed of sheep! They are beautiful!
They've had a few months to settle in and get to know us, and us them. They are always ready for grain so that is a great start! They have moved in with the big group of sheep now that we know we can catch them. They are quite tame but we have to be sure. It's hard to move when a sheep's lived in the same place with the same person all its life. Sheep are not great with change, I think that is why we get along so well? HA!
I'm looking forward to working with their wool this spring. It is soft and gorgeous, feels a little bouncy too? For now you can read more about them here...
We'll be adding more information about them soon!
1/18: The girls are gorgeous, adorable (of course!) and getting used to us. Here is a photo of Comfort. She is the lamb who rode along to our place. She will be one year old soon. Time goes so quickly past.
I asked Kim to put names to this picture of her CVM girls. Now I can finish memorizing faces and names! They are all such special peanuts!
I'll be giving each of the girls their own page soon. Keep an eye out! Several of their fleeces are for sale- don't miss them. I'm having trouble sharing!!! Fleeces available here...
I haven't had a chance to spin any of the girls fleeces but thought I would post a few photos. Sorting it out was fun, such soft and pretty wool- soft as Merino with a little bounce to it.
