    Everything in the blog is beautiful — including the knitting under the egg! I REALLY want to sink my fingers into Edgar’s fleece; YUM!

      yeah, I’d like to scrunch Edgar’s fleece too,, but he’s being shy. Haven’t been able to get close to him since he’s arrived. We’ll be working on that today!

    And now the “fleece family” is all settled in! And are all the boys playing nice together? Anxious to see the whole group together…can’t wait to visit in a month!!

      Thanks Ma- the boys are pretty much staying in their two groups right now, but I think they’ll start to mingle more once the new boys gain confidence. Hard being the new guys in the pasture, you know.

    I agree that knitting under your perfect egg looks beautiful Denise!
    Your boys are so cute!! Hope they all get along together. Are they half-polled?

      thanks Jody- the knitting under the egg is a cable-y hat made of 3 ply Huey (Schoonover Farm) with a little Mariah (Little Country Acres) thrown in for good measure.
      I don’t think the boys are half polled- just wethered, so the horns aren’t really going anywhere.

    Once the new guys see Franklin & Feelix getting treats, I’ll bet they’ll come around 🙂 Congrats on the rest of your new family. T.
