Bianca (Brith's)           Briar Rose (Pandeena's)

Rider (Rita's)

We had three cria born at our farm this year, including one born to Brith, a first time mother. It took sometime for Brith to adjust to motherhood but after a few days she adjusted quite well. The other two cria were born to Pandeena and Rita, veteran mothers. Pandeena gave birth to her cria a day after Brith gave birth to her's and Pandeena was able to help Brith with the adjustment.

Shearing 2010

 Shearing has come and gone for another year. We had a fairly wet spring but were fortunate enough to be able to keep our animals dry during shearing. We put in a few long days but were able to get all our animals sheared by the beginning of May. Once again Jennie sheared our animals, Sarah sorted the fleece, and Don, Katie, Bob, Kathy and myself helped out wherever possible.
