Isn't she pretty? This is Maybelline and she is one of my little girls produced by Henry. Belle, her mom is one of my favorite ewes. Belle is not the friendliest ewe in the flock, but she's no ding-bat either. She's friendly when she wants to be, but otherwise doesn't have much to say. She is a wonderful mother to her lambs and is calm and easy to work around, all good traits in a ewe. Belle has a beautiful silver fleece and she's passed on the character of her fleece to Maybelline. Combined with genetics from Henry, this little girl has got a fleece to love. Maybelline is a triplet and I kept both of her siblings, so that should tell you that Belle and Henry made a good match. ( I sure wish Henry was still around, so I could play matchmaker again. )
We are most likely in the last days of having color on the trees. The weather is supposed to be much colder the next few days and in the 20's at night. It will really start to look like winter, once all the leaves are down. I'm thinking about and planning for Thanksgiving this week. I'm hoping to get a jump on some of the manic grocery shopping that takes place the week of Thanksgiving and be finished early next week. I don't know about where you live, but around here, grocery shopping seems to be an olympic sport! Unless you've been training hard, you don't want to go to Kroger's during Thanksgiving week!
