I am very thankful for all the good things bestowed upon us - the sunny days and the beautiful fall landscapes. Heck I’m even grateful for the bad things, there’s no one who escapes the bad things in life and we are no different than anyone else in that regard. But it is really hard facing some days. The good news today is that Stan's long term disability claim has been approved! It took almost 7 weeks for his short term disability claim to be approved so this is an improvement. Granted, disability pay is only 60% of his usual pay, but at least it's something and we are grateful for it.
We had a very good turn out for the Open Studio on Felt United Day. In fact, it was such a busy day I didn't even get any photos taken. Thankfully the grant coordinator, Judy B., took lots of photos so I'm counting on her to share them with me so I can share them with you. Suffice it to say that I have lots of felted rocks and flowers for the collaborative piece. But we forgot to make the LEAVES, I can't believe we forgot the leaves!

You would think he was mioget or fawn if not for the back on his face and legs. He has produced black lambs when bred to moorit ewes, so we know he’s not Bb/Bb.
He sired 6 lambs for me this past spring, all were gulmoget (3 of the dams were gulmoget too).
He’s a very unique genetic package, email (becky at riveroakssheep dot com) or call me at 320 679 4117 for more details and pricing.
