Not sure what "20-06" means Jenna but it is great to meet the rest of your family.

20-06 is her ear-tag number. The 20th lamb born in 2006 on the Armata's Farm.

Are you planning on naming these sheep Jenna? I think this one looks like a "Liesl", after the eldest daughter in the Sound of Music ( the woman who she was based on died yesterday)

Also do you know which of your sheep is the bellweather yet?

I really liked the name "Saya"... Might be too close to "Saro" though.

These are such beautiful sheep. :)

What a beautiful creature- it cries out to be hugged. :)
Maude's angry wool was fun but THAT wool looks just amazing- can't wait!

I love, love, love, the look of those sheep! I have had a soft spot for sheep since my father raised them.

It's pronounced Leezel. Like weasel but with a L.

Their names were:Liesl Louisa Frederich Kurt Brigitta Marta and Gretl. So you might just have Liesl, Louisa, Brigitta, Marta and Gretl there.

When I'm an old sheep woman
original by jenny joseph

When I am an old sheep woman,

I shall wear muddy boots and beautifully knitted wool sweaters

And a felted had that suits me just fine.

And I shall spend my pension on herb tea and cookies

And fine treats for my sheep and goats, and say we’ve no money for bread!

I shall sit in the hay mow with a faithful collie and kitty in my lap

And listen to ‘my girls’ softly baaing below.

In spring I shall lay down in the meadow

With kids and lambs all around and drink fresh milk

When suddenly, I am an old sheep woman.

I'm so pleased you like the name Jenna! Maybe sometime this year I'll have a chance to meet her, and you- Toronto isn't all that far from Albany.

Hope you and your farm have a happy and prosperous new year!
