Last evening, Lester Holt reported about goat yoga. I've been seeing this on the internet lately and thought - what a clever and novel idea by some capitalistic goatherd - something different... but goat yoga is much more important than just making folks smile - it underscores the importance of goats!
FYI, if you visit the farm, I'll be glad to let you lay down in the barn and I'll walk on your back for free (or a hand full of peanuts) - sort of like those oriental massage ladies, only goats, with sharp hooves caked with manure - sounds appealing, eh?
In the farm news department, it's the quiet season around here. Wench is busy dyeing yarn and getting ready for the shows upcoming : July 28 and 29: Alleghany Quilt Guild show... August 12 and 13: High Point Quilters show... October 27, 28 and 29 SAFF... right now it looks like September is empty, OH, except for the rabbit shows that start up in September. Murfreesboro on Labor Day weekend and then convention in October. In the meantime, we are excited that Haley is coming to visit next week. We're getting ready by having the big clean out all done before she gets here.... all the 2nd floor rabbit cages out in the driveway being power washed, the floor scraped, cages repaired, etc., and put back together before Monday. The hay has been delivered and stacked in the barn, and so we're set there!
Next year is the inaugural Blue Ridge Fiber Fest, right here in Sparta, NC. Of course wench is right in the middle of it - keeps her busy and out of the bars.
So, this post was put on the editor's desk and shoved aside until now. (Can't get good help) I've added a page to this website - a "new events" page where you can see the things that are upcoming! If you know of something you'll want, or a particular kind/color of yarn, just let us know and we can deliver to any event we attend. I am hoping to add rabbit shows to this list, just need to figure it out for sure. Once that happens, breeding stock can be delivered as well.
Wench is up in New York picking up Hailey and I expect to see them very late on Monday! Yay! I bet she's grown since I've seen her last! Thanks, as always, for reading Frankly speaking...
