We love to hear from our customers and to give you ideas of what can be done with easy-to-spin Cheviot fleeces and what our lambs are up to in their new homes.

Living Hope Church, near our farm, puts on a biennial pageant of the Journey to Bethlehem. The Journey begins in the village, complete with 18 shops and shopkeepers and two inns. In the photo on the right Pete, as the tanner, haggles with a potential buyer. We share our sheep with them and this year we had four sheep out in the field, with sheep from two other farms. Some shepherds gathered around bonfires while others walked their sheep around the field and even through the village.

 The same church, Living Hope, is producing a program for vacation Bible Schools across the country. They needed some pictures of Jesus as a shepherd, so we provided little Isaewe, a 7-month-old ewe to pose with him. Toni was there, snapping away - one of these shots may be next year's Christmas card !

Terri Brown, of Virginia, has had a busy year and captured it on camera for us. To the left are pictures of her ram, Gideon, who won Best in Show at the Facquier County fair two weeks after he arrived at her farm in 2010. Her daughter Sally, robed in pink, shared in a Nativity scene while Gideon nuzzled the Baby Jesus. On the right is a nice winter shot of Gideon and two ewes with their guard dog.

Gabi Montoya, in New Mexico, bought a raw fleece, processed it, and spun it on a drop spindle using Procion reactive dye from Dharma Trading Company. As you can see, above, the results were spectacular ! Gabi is moving east soon - maybe we will see her at Rhinebeck in 2012.

Angela Killian, owner of a two-year-old Shepherd's Croft cross-bred wether, was thrilled when Andy was chosen by the StarGazers for their 2010 Sheep-to-Shawl competition at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Show. The group took 5th place with 79 points (First Place was only 5 points ahead of them). They earned $210 for Star Gazer Farm and the farm animal rescue project there. YEAH ANDY !

Judy Lukas spins and knits dog fur for animal charities - an unusual and fascinating service!

We love the shop of Amanda Hartrich at http://inspirationfibers.etsy.com

Amanda has a fiber club that discusses a different fiber every month - samples and all! She chose our Mini Cheviot fiber for a month and used Isaac, a lovely ram fleece. Check it out at http://www.ravelry.com/groups/inspiration-fibers

Einstein and girlfriends


Elaine Morris bought Einstein from Terri Brown and promptly put him to work. This is a photo of Einstein and Elaine with visitors to Einstein's first "petting zoo" event for Critters4Christ. He will be an old pro after a few of these! Several of our sheep are working in Petting Animal situations - they have friendly dispositions. Baa-Baa and Snow White were the names chosen at Camp Curiosity for their new residents in 2013.
