Yes ... it's been a while.
But between lambing, shearing, and stocking hay .... there's not much time left for writing.

That being said, to make up for the long silence, let's start with a few photos from this year's lambing season.

So far 22 lambs have been born.  Here are just a few :

Ouf !! Ça fait un petit moment !

Mais entre l’agnelage, la tonte, et le stockage du foin ... il ne reste que très peu de temps pour écrire.

Ceci dit, pour rattraper un peu le manque de billets, commençons par un petit reportage photo de l’agnelage 2016 chez la Bergère-Filandière.

Jusqu’à présent 22 agneaux sont nés.  En voici quelques uns :

Thank you for sharing these photos and news of your raising of your sheep as well as how you use their fleece! I've always wanted sheep so this is especially interesting to me. I have been spinning though, just getting fleece from others! These sheep are beautiful!

Thank you for visiting the Spinning Shepherd!
