From time to time I go up and talk to Marcus about chickens, sheep, geese and all to get his opinion on breeds and see what is new. Yesterday he tried to talk me into taking some pigs home. I was especially looking at some Tunis lambs and found one I really wanted to bring home. However, John has this idea that it is good to bring two sheep at a time so they have a buddy to hang out with when things are scarry or lonely or whatever. It is a GREAT idea and has worked well for us and especially the sheep. I could have brought home two BUT I am also looking at another breed and two by two adds up quickly.
If it were spring and the barnyard wasn't COMPLETELY soggy and the grass was starting to grow and we weren't going through so much hay, and I had a little more fence and another small shelter I could have definately brought home those two sweeties but I guess it is best to wait a couple of weeks. It is time to think about rams and that is what complicates things.
So today I have to be content spinning some Tunis rovings that Marcus gave me to see how it is as yarn and think about that sweet Tunis lamb (# 0059) that was so friendly and definitely wanted to come home with me.
